About US

Recognizing the need for energy-efficient homes in Southwest Florida, David Wishtischin made the bold decision to form a home building construction company. At the height of an economic recession, when most owners in the construction industry were backpedaling, David was looking forward. Together with the services of an experienced building scientist, David put his extensive construction knowledge and experience to work to develop some of the area’s most energy-efficient concepts in homebuilding and launched the highly rated Ravenwood Homes.

In 2013, David saw a lack of quality and choice in the more modestly priced home market, ergo, Gulf Living Homes came to be. Gulf Living Homes offers popular floorplan options, energy efficiency, choice and affordability with long lasting value and quality.

The Ravenwood Homes / Gulf Living Homes team have been working together for more than 12 years. The majority of their carefully selected subcontractors have consistently provided Ravenwood Homes / Gulf Living Homes their professional services since the first Ravenwood Home was built in 2009. The longevity of such relationships and ensuing trust is another indicator of the company’s commitment to providing consistent high-quality workmanship for lasting value for homebuyers.


A Husband & Wife In it For Life

In 2012, David’s wife Brittany joined the team as Executive Vice President and head of Sales and Marketing. Pairing Brittany’s background in design and sales with David’s 21 years of construction experience has proven that their partnership is as successful in business as it is in life.

For example, they realized that the quality of construction when it came to more modest homes was lacking. That led them to create Gulf Living Homes, which builds efficient, smaller homes that offer the larger outdoor living spaces and upscale features typically reserved for much more expensive homes. Now any homeowner can enjoy the Southwest Florida lifestyle, no matter their budget.

When David and Brittany aren’t at work together, they enjoy spending time with their three children: David, Jackson, and Charlee. David holds an undergraduate Science degree from the University of Connecticut and attended the Graduate School of Business at the University of Massachusetts. Brittany graduated from Blue Cliff College.
