Meet The Team

Jim HawkeBroker of Record, and Michele HawkeOffice Manager

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce the founding members of Team Hawke Realty.

Jim Hawke started his real estate career in 1989 as a sales representative. Quickly he continued his education, becoming a Broker in 1992. Soon after, Michele sold her business and joined Jim as the Office Manager.

The two continued to work very hard together, building a strong business, making new friends, and helping many families along the way.

Jim continually received some of the highest sale awards from Remax International from 1993 to 2016.

Having worked so hard to build their relationships with their clients, Jim and Michele have been very selective in the growth of their team. They strive to only bring in new team members that have the clients best interests at heart. The Team Hawke vision is “fulfilling our clients dreams of home ownership as well as their dreams of financial independence through investing in Real Estate.” They look at every client as a “client for life”.

Jim and Michele are very proud and fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with and help so many wonderful people, and look forward to the relationships to be established in the years to come.

Brad HawkeSales Representative

Brad was raised in the Real Estate business and was eager to learn about the process and real estate investing from a very young age. With a passion for the business, he began investing in real estate straight out of high school and was licensed to sell by age 20. Throughout his career, he has been involved in a number of large renovations and has broadened his understanding of the components to a home as well as design. He uses these skills to help navigate first time buyers on what to look for beyond the cosmetics of a home and seasoned buyers to see the potential of a property.

Brad finds it a great privilege to work directly with his clients through, what is for many of them, their largest investment and takes great responsibility in making sure the clients’ needs are matched. His business thrives from repeat customers and the referrals he receives year over year which is the greatest compliment he can receive.

Brad was born and raised in Midland and grew up playing hockey and lacrosse in town, which taught him the virtues of team work and the competitive edge he brings to selling Real Estate. He later grew a passion for music which he continues to this day, challenging himself to learn new instruments and different genres of music along the way. Brad is pleased to meet new people each day, helping them through the process he enjoys so much.

Julia Wilson Sales Representative

Julia, her husband, and their two dogs call Penetanguishene home. The first time she visited the area and saw Georgian Bay, she knew immediately that it was meant to be home. Julia approaches real estate from a “help first” consultant perspective which means her clients enjoy top-notch real estate service like they’ve never received. Her clients love her friendly personality, and appreciate her thorough attention to detail and strong negotiating skills. More than anything, her creative and out of the box thinking help turn her clients’ dreams of home ownership into realities.

When she’s not busy working hard for her clients, you can find Julia out exploring Georgian Bay’s trails with her two pups, or experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen.

Julia looks forward to putting her vast real estate knowledge to work for you.
