Rudy LaBrada has been in real estate since 1992 - over 26 years! In 1997 Rudy opened his first Downtown Upland office later moving his location down the street and has been here ever since. In 2019, he opened his second office in Hemet, Ca. Rudy attended Bishop Amat High School and received his Bachelor’s in Business Administration from Loyola Marymount University. In addition to being a licensed Real Estate Broker, Rudy is a Certified Short Sale and Foreclosure Specialist. He first became interested in real estate at a young age because he loved seeing new houses and would draw floor plans for fun.
Rudy is the co-author of the 2015-2016 'Top 10' and 'Best Seller' on Amazon.com, 'The Art of Buying and Selling Real Estate' which is available on paperback and Kindle on Amazon.com. Within days of its release, the book reached #2 in the Buying
and Selling Real Estate category and reached 'Top 10' and 'Best Seller' status on two separate national and international best seller lists and was also featured as a 'Hot New Release'. He is so proud of this accomplishment, he is considering writing his own full book based on his vast experiences in the real estate business.
Most people would be interested to know that he has a background in political finance. Previously, Rudy was a Finance Director for politicians for statewide and national office. He worked with individuals that were, and continue to be, very prominent politicians on the state and national level. Politics was a great career path when he was younger but later became more difficult when not allowing for family time. When looking for his second career he knew that real estate was his passion.
Rudy would describe himself as loyal, trustworthy, and silly. In his spare time he enjoys tending to his beautiful garden, taking trips in his motor home, relaxing on the beach, enjoying a glass of wine and playing with his two rescue dogs, Molly and Bandit.
Rudy states, “The most rewarding thing about this job is that every day is different. I also love that I have generations of families as clients. It is amazing that I am now selling homes to the children of my clients! It is nice to see these individuals grow up and watch their careers and families bloom. These types of customer relationships are what make The LaBrada Group unique!”
