National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals Awards David Bravo, Jr. Emerging Latino
David Bravo, Jr. Made History as the Youngest Latino CEO in the Title Insurance Industry
By: matt chassin
Award-winning Real Estate Agent Sonia Moncayo lauded Bravo as one the top leaders in the title industry. "We are very proud of David, a respected Latino entrepreneur, who is a wonderful example to the younger generation,"
You might say the San Gabriel Valley native Bravo was destined to forge an untraditional path in Corporate America especially in an industry that there were very few, if any, who looked like him. He was raised in a real estate and title industry household. "My parents, David Bravo, Sr. and Socorro Garcia, are my role models," he said. "Their reputations in the real estate industry and work ethic was the foundation of my success."
His career started in 1999 at United Title. At 18 years old, two weeks after he graduated from Bishop Amat Memorial High School in La Puente, California, he was recruited as a title sales representative. "In a short time, I was nationally recognized as a top rep, specifically during the Great Recession," said Bravo.
"I pushed through some very tough times and became a LA County Sales Manager at 30 years old, then a Regional Manager 7 years later, that positioned me as one of the youngest in the industry," he said.
In 2020, Bravo reached the apex of his career and was named the CEO of Monarch Title. "I owe this amazing opportunity to Sam Rafeh who migrated to this country as a teenager. He is a true example of the American dream when he founded Monarch Title," said Bravo when he accepted his award at the NAHREP award ceremony. "I'm proud to say that we're the only title company in the United States that is minority owned."
A strong believer in gaining knowledge and personal development, Bravo continued his education and enrolled at the Pepperdine Graziadio Business School and USC Marshall School of Business. Achieving his educational goals naturally motivated him to transfer his knowledge about real estate and educate his community and beyond about homeownership through his self-published book, Title Bible.

Bravo's sales training book was adopted by hundreds of title reps. He is the Founder of the Title Reps Only Facebook Group, a mentoring platform with more than 2,500 title reps nationwide. "My goal is for my community to have the tools needed to succeed in this industry," he said.
While his business accomplishments are vast, family is his top priority and motivation to succeed and create a legacy. Bravo and his wife Rhiannon have been married for 15 years and together are raising 5 children. Tragically, 2 additional daughters received their heavenly wings.
