“When you see the end results in the beginning, what happens in the middle doesn’t matter.”
Richard & Karen Bramwell’s love story began early on as they attended elementary school together, but coincidentally barely spoke as classmates. 20 years later they reunited at their school reunion and saw they were living parallel lives, though their paths never crossed. Now as husband and wife, they have become parents of a baby boy who would be the final ingredient to add their ‘Blended & Blessed’ loving family of five.
As the co-owner of one of the largest minority certified property management & development firms in New York State, Richard enjoys educating and training others, believing that there is room for all of us at the top. He is deeply passionate about sharing the secrets of what it took to develop $500 million in valued real estate projects and navigating 2,500 housing units. As his rock and support, Karen assists her husband with the day-to-day operations of the firm and is also a realtor. Karen truly believes that everything in life happens for a reason, and to whom much is given much is required, with her primary goal centered on always giving back. Richard and Karen’s mission is to exemplify positivity, which will uplift and empower others to live beyond life’s limitations.
“The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible.”
Corey met his soulmate Barbara at the tender age of 15 and quickly, their love blossomed into a business ‘partnership,’ as they ventured into their first business together importing & exporting wholesale American made garments to Europe and South Africa while in high school.
Corey & Barbara have spent the past few decades cultivating a prosperous real estate investment & management firm. Through the years they have helped many families fulfill their dream of home ownership and become one of the top African American real estate investors and developers in the greater New York City area and beyond. Together they are the proud parents of two sons, and participate in philanthropic activities that give back to those who are less fortunate.
