That’s the largest percentage gain of any of OC’s 34 cities (see list, page 24) Brea Population GrowthFull Article. Brea is OC’s 24th-most populous city. It has added about 5,000 people over the prior decade, according to Business Journal data. “Over the last eight years, there’s a lot of new housing coming online,” said Dwight Manley, a rare coin expert and sports agent who is often referred to as “Mr. Brea” because of his extensive involvement in the city’s real estate industry.
