Our Story

Since 2009, CB JENI Lifestyle Homes has proudly built new townhomes in premium Dallas-Fort Worth locations for lifestyle-conscious homebuyers. CB JENI, part of the Green Brick Partners group of companies, was founded to provide new home options for an underserved portion of the market: those looking to buy moderately-sized homes (whether first-timers or those moving down) with beautiful architecture, low maintenance and a level of service and professionalism that puts them at ease. Over the last ten years, we have grown to become DFW’s largest townhome builder, both in locations and units sold. Our townhomes also lead the way in quality, amassing numerous awards each year.

Our senior leaders have more than 200 years of combined homebuilding experience, expertise that is passed along to each individual customer. Our team of professionals is dedicated to you from the moment you visit our model to well after you’ve moved in.
