About Arabella of Longview Senior Retirement Community

Brian Clarke, CEO

In 2001 Brian Clarke and his family relocated to Tyler from Houston, Tx. They felt that the beautiful East Texas surroundings offered a better way of life for them and their four children. Brian’s affinity for working with seniors became evident when he was President and CEO of a medical equipment company that specialized in rehabilitation.

Brian began developing and designing senior living apartments with his first property Arabella of Kilgore in Kilgore, Texas.  In 2005, he opened The Hamptons Retirement Community in Tyler, the first of its kind in East Texas, offering Independent living apartments, cottages and assisted living with memory care services. The Clarke family is proud to bring their resort-style retirement concept to Longview, Texas with the opening of Arabella Retirement Community.
