The world of building is powerful, behind the scenes, and often unnoticed. Most of life's significant moments are experienced because of infrastructure & buildings. We are born in hospitals, send our children to schools, work in offices and make memories in our homes. The BR Companies represents this space through Real Estate, Construction, and Finance.
BR Building, a sole proprietor, is born a construction company by immigrants Ramon Banos Sr. (Spain) and Gricelda Banos (Mexico) with 2 employees focused on residential construction.
