Team Brazen

When you work with Joseph and Randi not only do you get thirty-four years of experience and knowledge but also a support team dedicated to your needs. The leadership team is committed to operating with the utmost integrity, and to the success of its members and clientele.

Joseph Brazen

Joseph Brazen began his career in 1979 selling $60,000 dollar homes in Anaheim, California at Tarbell Realtors. Joseph started his first business, Brazen Group Realty, in 1991 in Glendale, California. However, his heart was calling for the crown jewel of the Northwest, Bellevue, Washington. Here Joseph, his wife Randi and three daughters have been living for the past twenty one years. After working for William Bain of what is now Coldwell Banker Bain, Joseph opened the doors to his second real estate firm in Downtown Bellevue.

Focusing on people and communication, Joseph Brazen built the premiere boutique real estate office on the Eastside. A natural pairing occurred when Sotheby’s International Realty selected Brazen Real Estate to be their first Sotheby’s International Realty office in Washington State.

Joseph is Sotheby’s International Realty and so are his team of brokers. Throughout the years Joseph is mentor and teacher to a multitude of brokers, which is where he found his niche and passion, cultivating successful agents. With over 35 years of experience in all kinds of markets Joseph has the ability to teach brokers how to use the Sotheby’s Realty tools to move their career forward in extraordinary ways.

Their mission is to foster stability and self-sufficiency for Bellevue’s children and their families through programs that feed, clothe, and educate.

520 Bar and Grill

Entrepreneurs to the core, Joseph and Randi built one of their most notable endeavors 10 years ago.  Joseph and Randi decided that their 126 year old building in the heart of Downtown Bellevue on Main Street would be a great place to open a restaurant. What started as a small neighborhood bar and grill has now transformed into one of Bellevue’s favorite local spots to go for food, fun, and cocktails. Just this year 520 Bar and Grill was voted Best Bar by the reader’s of 425 magazine.
