BruceandDonna.com’s origin is the result of the joining of Bruce Phares and Donna Bertolino’s separate real estate practices in early 1991. Within a short time after combining their systems and styles, which were already complementary, they were chosen to represent a number of law associates at two of the largest law firms in Seattle, which set the mold for their representation model: “The Client’s Interests First. Always.”
Bruce Phares has been practicing real estate since 1987 in Seattle. After joining real estate practices (and personal lives!) in 1994 with Donna Bertolino, the two soon became known as “The Attorneys Advocates”, as the majority of their clients during the first 10 years of their combined practice were lawyers from several of the major law firms in downtown Seattle. As their practice grew, their reputation for fierce and creative representation for their clients was firmly established in the professional real estate landscape.
