Living Life On Purpose

The Barkouras family is focused on faith, family, friends and country. They are a spiritual family and attend OC Summit church in Laguna Niguel on a regular basis. They come from extremely large families with deep roots in the South. Kent is from Oklahoma and Brandi grew up in Louisiana and Texas. Kent was born and raised in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and is one of six kids in five years; five boys and one girl, with two sets of twins. Kent has two brothers, Todd and Scott, and sister, Maura, who made the move out West to Southern California over 30 years ago.

In the Fall, you can find Kent watching Oklahoma Sooners football games every Saturday with at least one of his brothers. Having spent nearly thirty years supporting Orange County based charities and Chapman University, his mother Mary Dell and her husband Tom live in Rancho Mirage and visit the family regularly. Brandi was born in Alexandria, Louisiana and grew up in Dallas, Texas. She has a younger brother Chaz who lives in Las Vegas and was a former MMA world champion. Most of Brandi’s family still lives in Louisiana. Her look-alike mom, Lane, also a real estate broker, lives in La Quinta and works with Brandi in real estate.

Kent and Brandi also spend a lot of time living their life journey with dear friends who have always been there for them during good times and bad. The Barkouras Family supports Newport Elementary, OCSA, the Elk’s Lodge, Adopt a-Family during the holidays, and are very active in supporting their church.
