David Parnes has shared his professional life with viewers on Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles for a few years now and when fans met him, he was a single guy with two dogs. He met and fell in love on the show and he even got engaged. And while Parnes has no problem showing his fans the hard work he puts in to sell his listings, it sounds like he hasn’t been as open about his family life. And on last night’s episode of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles, David revealed that he was battling some personal emotions as he learned that his brother had been diagnosed with a brain tumor.
According to a new Instagram post, David Parnes is now breaking his silence about his brother, revealing that he is still doing well despite the emotional episode. Parnes clearly had a hard time concentrating at work, because he was concerned about his brother. David opened up about his brother’s brain tumor on last night’s episode of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles and he decided to take some time off and travel to London to be by his side.

“My big brother Mike. You started your own business at 24 years old, ran a company of over 40 people and made your mark within such a short time. You’re my and our younger sisters Natalie and Alexandra’s idol, our inspiration and you’ve been our guiding force for everything we’ve achieved. You make the impossible seem possible, the unachievable achievable. You make all the bad, seem better,” David Parnes wrote on Instagram yesterday after the emotional episode of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles aired.
