“Working with Brad, Drew, and Mark was great—and largely thanks to them we now thoroughly enjoy our new residence in Canmore! We moved from Montana to Canmore and for much of the buying process we were far from Canmore. When we couldn’t make the inspection, Brad went through each room of the house with the inspector with his cell camera in hand so that we could join and participate over the internet—it was very helpful and appreciated! As we were new to the process of financing and purchasing a home in Canada, Brad pointed the way to important contacts in Canmore and Alberta who were quite helpful to us. When, after the purchase (and knowing we were not yet in town), Brad was concerned about our winter move-in and snowfall leading to possible blockage of our new driveway, Brad grabbed his shovel and cleared it—that was completely unexpected and really appreciated! Brad, Drew, and Mark were always just a phone call or email away during the entire house search and purchase process—we found them to be very responsive, professional, knowledgeable, and kind. We believe they did a great job familiarizing us with the town and the range of options (Brad took our entire family on many tours of available listings—he was always a pleasure to speak with and we found him to be a great source of insights on housing options). In short, we think that Royal LePage did a great job helping us turn the dream of a residence in Canmore into reality—thank you Brad, Drew, and Mark!” — David & Jodi

"Thanks, Brad for being friendly and knowing just what I was looking for. I love my new home." - Ms. Baber
"We would like to take this opportunity to gratefully thank you and Mr. Drew Betts for all your professional teamwork, dedication, and friendly service regarding the sale of our home. We've lived in Canmore for the past 15 years and you were recommended by many of our friends throughout the community. Operating two businesses of our own, we understand that customer service is vital in the service industry, and we were very comfortable choosing you to represent us. Your service was impressive." "Thanks again for your professionalism & efforts." - Pauline and Flint Simpson
"I was always impressed that despite your often hectic personal schedule, you made the time available to return my phone calls and to satisfactorily answer whatever questions were on my mind. I noticed that you were always on top, or at least pro active to any situation that I was enquiring about."- Sylvia Omnanney
"We have purchased 2 previous homes in B.C. and yet have never before seen the quality of service nor the level of commitment that you both demonstrated. Not only did you accommodate our wacky schedule as we were coming from out of town to view homes, but you managed to help us find a suitable place in a very short period of time. Throughout the process you assisted us every step of the way and when we hit a snag, you were always ready with a solution or advise. All of our phone calls were promptly returned, and you contacted us frequently to let us know how things were moving along after an offer had been made. We also appreciated that you provided us with the names and numbers of other professionals such as lawyers, mortgage brokers and house inspectors in this area. It has been a real pleasure working with the Brad Hawker Team and we will be sure to call you in the future if the need arises." - Trevor & Rimma Goodfellow
"Brad Hawker is the best Realtor that we have ever met. He has an excellent approach and goes far beyond what is expected of a Realtor. He made our purchase a pleasant experience. We would definitely work with Brad in the future." - Al & Colleen Randal
"Thank you so much for your patience and support - you are very good at what you do an will be recommended by me to anyone in need of Real Estate support". - Tannis Page
"We have never had to use the services of a Realtor/Broker, let alone in another location than where we lived. We quickly learned there is more to this game than you driving us around to everything in the world that is for sale and asking us '...what do you think?'. You took the lead through the critical discussions with the builder, including some issues of some past concerns you had regarding post-purchase service by that builder. You realized that our primary requisite was to feel comfortable with the builder, and led us through that process." "In the detailed walk-through and listing of deficiencies, you saw more than we did. You took the 'tough' position with the builder, allowing us to be the 'reasonable' people in the negotiating process.' "Brad, we could not be happier, nor express adequately our gratitude for your leadership through the process. Our 'Canmore' experience working with you was not a hassle at all - it was a pleasure. It took us surprisingly little time, because you dealt with us in a professional manner, knew what we wanted, and helped us get it." - Sylvia and Pierre Crevolin
"Brad was very good. He helped me understand the process of buying a house. He followed-up to make sure everything was O.K." - Michel Dufresne
"Both you & your partner Drew Betts approached every situation in a positive manner, always upbeat & looking forward, in spite of a somewhat stagnant market. In the short few months with our listing, more home visits took place than in the previous year with the previous realtor. Your enthusiasm and dedication produced real results and it was great." "Thank you for your integrity, dedication and professionalism exhibited in
this sale." - Jack & Pat Wilshire
"Brad was extremely professional, yet personable and kept me in touch very well. I never felt any pressure from him, which I really appreciated, but felt he was an excellent listener for my concerns. I would highly recommend him to others!" - Susan Williams
"My husband and I recently had the pleasure of working with Brad Hawker and Drew Betts of Royal LePage in Canmore, and were thoroughly satisfied with the service they provided. The Real Estate market in Canmore was slow for much of the time our condo was on the market, but there never seemed to be a shortage of clients Brad and Drew brought through our home. Both of these gentlemen worked extremely hard to ensure that we would be successful in selling our home at a price that we were happy with." We were impressed most with the ongoing communication Brad and Drew gave us, phoning with updates after all showings. This was a concern for us before we chose a Real Estate agent, but Brad and Drew definitely didn't let us down. Should we ever decide to relocate back to Canmore, we wouldn't consider having another team find us a home. Likewise, we would not hesitate to recommend Brad Hawker or Drew Betts to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home in the Canmore area". - Laura Bain
"We are safely ensconced in our new home and would like to take a moment to thank you for your help selling our home in Canmore. The real estate industry is populated with agents, most of whom use the same methods to offer the same service. It may be hard to distinguish oneself in such a mature industry. Notwithstanding, you were both diligent, courteous and helpful." - Greg & Carmen Bird
"Excellent Service, very professional and a great communicator. I felt Brad exceeded our expectations! He is to be commended!" Gary and Debi Skoye
"I am writing in support of Brad Hawker and his team, and to highlight my satisfaction with a condominium purchase I recently transacted through Brad. This transaction was done entirely over the internet and e-mails. On Brad's site I found a listing that met my needs precisely. I was able to "tour" the condo using the "Virtual Tour" function on the web site. This virtual tour highlighted for me several additional things which I wanted to "see" so I e-mailed Brad and asked him to take several photographs (digital) for me. Specifically, I needed to get a better feeling about the surrounding neighbourhood, and the views from the sun deck. Brad had these photos e-mailed to me within a day. I decided to buy the condo. Because I was unable to be in the area during the time of the condo purchase I depended on Brad Hawker and his team to conduct the entire operation remotely, and I feel it was successful in large part because Brad answers e-mails very quickly. I never felt that it was a dangerous or particularly risky prospect". - Allan Dwyer. Tokyo, Japan
"Brad was very good. He helped me understand the process of buying a house. He followed-up to make sure everything was OK. Even helped me carry some furniture upstairs when I moved in. What a guy!" - Michele Dufresne
