About Us

Our History

Long before we began, we knew exactly what we wanted to be. Creators of living space that was different—but more importantly—living space that made a difference. In quality, details, style and service.

After graduating from LSU, Deane Bryson began his career in commercial real estate. In recent years, he handled over $300 million in real estate transactions, and quickly acquired a well-deserved reputation in his field. John Buzzell, fellow LSU grad and financial strategist, was brought into the same firm. It was there that a friendship—and a shared vision of operating a property development and management company—began.

The two quickly earned their first multi-family construction loan, which allowed them to break ground on their first project. Twelve months later, Creekside Crossing opened its doors.

That same year, the two founded Bearing Point Properties, a development, acquisition and management company, as well as Bearing Point Property Management. In 2018, the partners continued additional developments in the Southeast region.

With a strong attention to detail and quality, and a long-term commitment to every project, Bearing Point Properties has emerged as a viable competitor in real estate development and management—offering unique opportunities for our investment partners—and making a true difference in the lives of those we serve.
