James Bratton

In 1962, James Bratton began contracting masonry work as Wilkinson and Bratton Ptr. In 1964, he contracted masonry work as James A. Bratton and in 1972, he incorporated as Bratton Masonry, Inc. He began Bratton Construction in 1977 building custom homes and apartment complexes.  

As a builder, he built several apartment complexes with with as many as 1,000 units and seven housing subdivisions from Coalinga to Clovis. As well as several custom homes and hundreds of remodeled homes. As a developer, he completed Old Ranch Park and Mallard Meadows in Prather, Echo Park Plaza in Coalinga, Kingsburg Business Park, and Madera Airport Plaza. Moreover, he developed one of the premier locations for new construction homes in Shaver Lake—Quartz Mountain. 

During his career as a masonry contractor, he has completed many projects where he left his mark. Recently, he and his team contributed to the completion of 49ers stadium in San Francisco, the San Francisco Giant’s stadium, and the new Apple computers building in Santa Clara. He has completed casinos in Vegas as well as the Valley to Prisons and several Costco locations.

Of all the magnificent projects James endevourved in his lifetime, his fondest was his personal residence—affectionately named the Clovis Castle. Fitting of its name, this beautiful residence was built completely out of stone found right on the property. Brick pavers and stone walls line the driveway from the entry to the house. You will even find separate quarters with a spiral staircase and elevator to the top of the light house. This project was a labor of love and it shows throughout this spectacular project.

Real Estate is something that James is very passionate about. In 2005 The Bratton Group Inc was formed. This became the shell company for both his investment and construction company. At the time when the market was on the rise, the company grew to twenty four agents and was doing everything from new construction sales to leasing. Now, Bratton Real Estate Inc is looking to make its place in the market and grow.
