I’m Mark Bragaw, the son of an Air Force Colonel and a High School English teacher, who moved to Northern Virginia in 1976 at the age of 4. I grew up in Falls Church, graduating from Falls Church High School. I married Carey in 1993 and moved to Oakton, Virginia, eventually settling in Vienna, Virginia.

I am a “girl-dad” of 3 daughters: Lauren, Lindsay and Leah. My hobbies include playing soccer, racquetball, golfing, and piano. I have been coaching soccer for Vienna Youth Soccer since 2006 and had the joy of coaching 2 of my 3 daughters’ soccer teams. I am involved as an assistant coach training the girls travel team goalkeepers.

I started in the mortgage industry in 2004, coming from  a previous career in restaurant management. I have brought this foundation of serving others to my mortgage career and is the core philosophy of my team. Our greatest strength is the time and attention we spend on educating, advising, advocating for our clients and strategic partners.

Meet the team

Our mission is to earn the trust and respect of everyone we serve, treating everyone with the same level of care and attention. We approach our job with humility and determination to make sure our clients are in the best position when purchasing or refinancing their home.


Why choose the Bragaw Team?


Personal attention

Our mission is to earn the trust and respect of everyone we serve, treating everyone with same level of care and attention. We enjoy spending time learning about our clients’ specific needs and helping them set realistic goals when it comes to buying a home. This is particularly helpful for new homeowners looking to purchase their first home.


Trusted advisors

We find that homebuyers often have a lot of concern trying to navigate the ever-changing market conditions and are overwhelmed by information about different mortgage options and misinformation in the media. We help them filter out the “noise” and focus on their specific financial goals. When goals are clear, the decisions are easy.


Deep expertise

We have helped thousands of clients successfully navigate the mortgage process. In that time, we have developed a process from start to finish that allows our clients to purchase with confidence and puts them in the best position possible to win contracts.


What our clients say

We are thrilled that our clients love us.  But don’t just take our word for it!

"Mark and the Bragaw team are fantastic to work with during the house buying process! They were never pushy and were always upfront about what to expect during every step along the way. I wouldn’t want to use anyone else to help us buy our first house!!"
