One of LA’s top real estate agents since 2005.
Realtor David Bramante is one of Los Angeles’ top real estate agents, with over 15 years selling, leasing, managing and investing in homes, condos, and apartment buildings. He’s sold over 700 units in LA, all at record-breaking prices.
David’s first experience with real estate started as an assistant property manager for his mother, Lawyer Eileen Leslie, who owned a boutique property management company in Hollywood throughout the 1990s.
By the mid-1990s and while still in high school, David was collecting rents, interacting with tenants, and generally helping supervise very large apartment buildings in Hollywood, Los Feliz and Koreatown.
In 2002, at 20 years old, David began investing in Echo Park real estate, and within a few years owned several smaller income properties in the area.
His first building was an Echo Park fourplex located at 1157 Bellevue Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90012, which he purchased as a first-time homebuyer with FHA financing with a sizable cash advance from his Wells Fargo credit card.
In 2005, he obtained his California real estate license (number 01511588), formed a realty team called “BRE Investment” and started to specialize in selling homes and smaller income property in Silver Lake and Echo Park. Through this experience, he learned the ins-and-outs of buying and selling real estate professionally.
In 2007, David was hired as a commercial property portfolio manager for regional property developer Fred Leeds at Fred Leeds Properties.
He supervised three large commercial properties near Downtown LA, in Westlake, CA. The properties included “City View Lofts” and the “Wilshire-Union Center” (which leases retail spaces to the Home Depot, Food4Less, RiteAid, Starbucks, McDonalds, among others). Through this amazing experience, he became very interested in commercial real estate.
In 2009, David decided to sell larger income properties on the Eastside and joined Marcus & Millichap Los Angeles. His first apartment building listings were a 5-unit on Echo Park Avenue in Echo Park, and a 30-unit SRO on Wright Street in DTLA.
While a broker at M&M, David was awarded both the 2009 National Rookie of the Year Award and the 201o National Pace Setter for sales volume. Obtaining one is difficult, obtaining both is nearly impossible. He worked closely with some of LA’s top commercial brokers, like Broker Rick Raymundo.
In 2013, David incorporated BRE Investment, LLC and joined Keller Williams Realty Commercial. While with Keller Williams Realty, he have helped recruit, train and supervise over 250 active agents at the KW DTLA office and over 550 active agents at the KW Silicon Beach office as those offices’ Team Leaders.
David recruited 8-12 agents per month at each office, created multiple mentorship and productivity coach programs, and helped each office become more organized, energized and profitable.
Through his career, David has worked and partnered with some of the most well-known real estate agents and firms in LA County, and he was a top-performing Realtor all the while.
