Bro-Deals was founded in Los Angeles as a California Bureau of Real Estate DBA in 2004. The concept of the "bro-deal" was simple. If we can help, we will, and at a cost we'd charge only my family and friends. If we can't add value, we know who can and will have no hesitation to refer. We've been around a long time and know how close deals.
