Burns Brothers, LTD is a local development firm headed by Kent Burns. With a family history rooted in Valley agriculture and business, the firm is dedicated to reinvesting in the same community that has supported their South Texas farming operations for three generations.
The early 2000’s brought sprawl and, with it, came issues which made farming the 726 acre farm, now known as La Sienna, much more difficult. A decision was made at this time to either sell the tract or develop it. From there, Resaca Market was born. The brothers had learned a great deal about land development from their late father, Bill Burns, who developed upscale Orangewood, Orangewood South, and Orangewood East in neighboring Mcallen.
Resaca Market resides inside La Sienna. Burns Brothers, LTD created La Sienna, a 726-ace master planned community in North Edinburg. Farming operations of 726 acre tract were moved to the family’s 10,000 acre state-of-the-art ranch, 3 miles to the North. La Sienna, is situated in a prime location setting pace for the growth and continued expansion of the Rio Grande Valley. U.S expressway 281, now designated Interstate I 69, was improved by installing the drainage and utilities to develop commercial tracts, two gated, private subdivisions, clubhouse, swimming pool, walking trails, private park and three miles of roadway landscaped with pods and trees.
