Brad Hawker has been selling Real Estate in the Bow Valley since early 1992. An active member of the community, Brad has helped organize the Royal LePage Christmas Food Bank Drive since it started 1994, as well as taught a community course for 17 years in the Bow Valley on ‘How to Buy Your First
Home’. Brad also coordinates local fundraising efforts for the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation, which is dedicated to providing funding and support to shelters for abused women and their children in Canmore and Banff. Our office has raised over $75,000 and donated it to the Banff YWCA and Bow Valley Victim Services.
Brad is the past Broker and owner of Royal LePage Rocky Mountain Realty for 25 years until the merger with Royal LePage Solutions in 2021 so he could focus more time on his buyer and seller clients. Education and giving back are a pillar for Brad from when he received his Certificate of Achievement in 1993 for Industrial, Commercial and Investment Division certification from the Calgary Real Estate Board to serving over 11 years as an active Board Member and the past President of the Pointe of View Condominium Association and is present President of the Mountain Greens condo association, as well as President of the Royal LePage Centre condo association for over 10 years making him very familiar with the Condominium Act and how that affects Buyers and Sellers.
Brad has also spent time helping organize national and regional conferences/events for Royal LePage along with continuing to work with the Auction committee at the national conference, which raises funds for the Royal LePage Women’s Shelter Foundation. This auction and many other initiatives have raised more than $40 million dollars for the Shelter Foundation. Brad also supplies the press with market information for their articles and is often quoted as a voice in Canmore and Banff Real Estate.
Brad first came to the Bow Valley for a winter of skiing from Montreal between CEGEP and University. Brad loved being able to raise his two children in this mountain paradise. Lauren both ski raced and was a ski coach for the Banff Alpine Racers and Bow Valley Quikies. Lauren graduated from St. Francis Xavier University and is now working for Global Affairs Canada in Ontario. Callum also ski raced with Banff Alpine Racers all the way up to FIS and is now attending the College of Sports Media in Toronto.
Prior to Real Estate Brad was very active in triathlons for 4 years and completed the Penticton Ironman and Vancouver Marathon plus coached skiing part time for 2 years with the Bow Valley Quikies and was a past Board member of the ski club for 5 years. When Brad is not working hard for his clients, he can be found Alpine or Nordic skiing, swimming, doing yoga, working out in the gym, mountain biking and hiking in our awesome “backyard”. While travelling is a passion of Brads, after Canmore and Banff their is no better place Brad likes to be that his cottage in the Laurentians, north of Montreal. During part of the summer, Brad holidays at his cottage in the Laurentians, north of Montreal, with his family at which time his business partner, Drew Betts, and Brad's Team take care of business in a seamless manner.
Brad's commitment & reputation within the community, along with strong business ethics & experience, make him an outstanding choice for buying or selling.
