Brandon De Young (P), vice president of Fresno’s DeYoung Properties, has been selected by Professional Builders Magazine as one of its 40 Under 40 top professionals.

De Young, 30, who has a bachelor’s and master’s degree from the University of San Diego, led the team that designed and built the first zero-net energy home in Clovis, with plans to break ground on a second ZNE home.

He was also part of the team that completed a home in 106 hours for the “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” television show in 2009. De Young Properties has also built and donated nine Dream Homes that raised nearly $9 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

“The Great Recession left some scars but must also have produced much wisdom because more than a dozen of home building’s superstars, named as 40 Under 40 winners by the editors of Professional Builder, cite surviving the economic slump as one of their greatest career accomplishments,” according to Professional Builders Magazine. “These young leaders also played key roles in growing their companies by replacing a legacy system, expanding into new markets, and mastering many other tasks.”
