Principles & Culture
We are obsessed with quality and perpetual improvement. As we get to know you, our approach will be optimized and tailored toward your transactional objectives.
Bravo’s workplace culture differentiates our firm and gives purpose to our work
01. Values driven
We never compromise our values for profits.
02. Deeper knowledge
We constantly train and drill our team. Knowledge of HUD’s rules and underwriting standards means that our loan sizings and pre-screenings are thorough and there are no surprises at the finish line.
If we don’t know the answer, we will tell you that and will find out. There is no room for gamesmanship, as our business’ cornerstone is trusted long-term relationships.
Communication, standards and expectations will be clear and direct.
05. Hire and retain the best & brightest
We focus on hiring top talent across industries – finance scholarship winners, big law attorneys, and data scientists – with the understanding that hiring and retaining the best and brightest talent is everything. We are the firm for a client’s biggest and most important financings.
Our valued HUD partners, clients, and corporate relationships deserve white glove service – always and without exception.
07. Work smart
Certainty of execution is a direct result of quality work. We always have something to prove. Working at and building an institution in which we believe is a critical part of our identity.
08. Be nice
Treat co-workers with respect and express appreciation.
09. Play as a Team
“No ego” is a mantra that we live at Bravo. Senior executives do not hesitate to help our most junior employees with any task – no matter how menial – for the betterment of the team.
We do not wait for someone to tell us what the next step is, and work will never be waiting on our desks. We are in constant motion and are always working on a transaction’s next steps.
Bravo finances projects only after a thorough vetting of the sponsorship. As a result, Bravo works with a number of the fastest growing and most prominent real estate sponsors in the country and leans in to the underwriting for such sponsors with remarkable track records.
