Effective immediately, Mr. Bratch and Bratch Realty are prohibited from providing real estate services to, or on behalf of, any member of the public.
The Council has suspended the licences in the public interest while it further investigates whether Mr. Bratch was engaged in aggressive marketing and sales practices targeting vulnerable persons who were financially distressed as a result of their homes being in foreclosure proceedings.
