HOW OUR BROOME COUNTY PAINTING COMPANY BEGAN
Founded in 2006 by Debrah Godbay, Brushes Over Broome began as an off-spin of her local cleaning
business Brooms Over Broome due to the demand of painting by her cleaning clients. Debbie would
often times clean in the morning and paint in the afternoon. She built up a reputation people could
trust, and an unforgettable name. In 2013, Debbie’s Son, Kalitto joined the business as a painter, and in
2016 her youngest son Kamilio and daughter in law Nicole also joined.
BECOMING A SUCCESSFUL BINGHAMTON PAINTING COMPANY
Kalitto Oliveras, Owner of Brushes Over Broome LLC, has been professionally painting since 2013. A
passion for craftsmanship, devotion to his employees, and love for the trade has brought Brushes Over
Broome from his mom’s garage to the area’s premier painting service. In order to make Brushes Over
Broome stand out from other painting companies, Kalitto started (and still to this day) learns from the
top people in the industry, world class painters, and likeminded entrepreneurs. He decided that Brushes
Over Broome would be the best niche painting contractor in Binghamton, and today, we truly believe
we do it better and more efficient than anyone in the area. Kalitto ensures that the systems and
processes put into place each day are above industry standard.
“I grew up in a trades environment that today does not look like what it used to. An amazing paint job is
not enough anymore. People want to work with a professional company with constant communication
and a white glove level of service with same day quotes, high priority, and follow through”.
In April of 2023, Kalitto and Brushes Over Broome officially became Fine Paints of Europe Certified Painters. This is a distinguished honor that only a handful of craftspeople across the country are awarded each year.
Nicole Oliveras has been in the industry since 2016. “We operate under a system we call the Decent
Human Being Theory: we find really good people who don’t necessarily have any experience, put them
through our evolving Apprenticeship program, then inspire them with a passion for craftsmanship and
leadership development. We get immense pleasure from this process, and our goal is to help foster the
next generation of super thoughtful men and women who want to carry this tradition into the future”
We are proud of the name and reputation we, as a family, have built in Binghamton over the last 15+
years. Kalitto and Nicole are the ones you will meet to give you a detailed estimate that highlights
specific products used and breaks down the cost of each project by room and itemized areas. The
accompanying bid package will explain our process so there are no surprises. Keeping up with today’s
growing market, we strive to use only the best products, tools, and techniques, and we do not take
shortcuts in order to increase profit.
