Barry Lehman

Founder & CEO of Boca Raton Custom Homes

Luxury Home Builders

As the son of a very successful custom home builder in the Boston area, Barry virtually grew up in the construction business. After completing his graduate degree in 1975 and over the next 20 years, Barry built a large number of high-end custom and spec homes in some of the wealthiest and most exclusive suburbs in the Boston area. His homes can be seen in Brookline, Newton, Weston, and Marblehead. In that same 20 year period, Barry built $170,000,000.00 worth (at cost) of ultra-high-end homes on Nantucket Island, the site of some of the most expensive residential real estate in America.

In 1995, Barry relocated to Boca Raton. He continued his real estate activities by incorporating Boca Raton Custom Homes and building multiple ultra-high-end custom and spec homes in some of the most expensive and prestigious neighborhoods in South Florida.

After more than 40 years in the business, Barry still enjoys working closely with clients from the earliest conceptual stage to the completion of their projects. Attention to the smallest detail and a total focus on 100% customer satisfaction continues to guide Barry’s activities every day.

David Marshall is truly a unicorn. His extensive construction knowledge and extreme technical expertise were totally self taught. Born in Boston, MA, David graduated high school in 1985. He started out as an apprentice carpenter and by 1989, he was so skilled that he was hired as a kitchen designer. He continued to refine his carpentry skills and his overall design skills and, by 1991, he became a licensed General Contractor in the State of Florida. By 1992, he was designing kitchens, decks, additions to homes, and then entire homes for several local contractors.

From 1993 to 2009, Dave decided to focus his time exclusively on the design, sale, and installation of kitchens and bathrooms to retail clients, client referrals, and local General Contractors. In 2001, he founded In Place, DM Design Co., Inc. In 2009, Dave closed DM Design and moved to Florida continuing to design and sell both kitchens and baths. In 2011, Barry Lehman asked David to be the Senior Project Manager for the most expensive home ever built on Cape Cod. From 2011 to 2013, Barry and David worked to complete a 17,000 sq. ft. estate home on four prime beachfront acres in Osterville, MA.

In 2014, David returned to Florida and began to refine his 3D modeling skills to enhance his design capabilities. He continued to work independently as a designer and consultant for several companies primarily focusing on architectural design, cabinetry design, lighting design, and remodeling. In 2022, he rejoined Barry Lehman as Vice President of Operations at Boca Raton Custom Homes where he is responsible for all the details of BRCH’s construction projects. In his capacity as V.P. of Operations, he brings BRCH’s clients dreams and desires to life. David was licensed as a General Contractor in the Start of Florida in 2016.

After moving to South Florida, she graduated from Florida Atlantic University in 2020 with her BBA with a focus on management, as well as a minor in Real Estate.  After finishing her studies, she became a licensed real estate agent.
