Jim Hawke – Broker of Record, and Michele Hawke – Accounting & Deal Clerk
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 Hawke – Sales 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.

Vanessa Moreau – Sales Representative
Born and raised in Midland, ON, you may recognize Vanessa as a familiar face here at Team Hawke Realty. Hired in 2017, Vanessa went from the friendly face greeting you at the front desk, to managing the front office operations in the early spring of 2018. What’s she doing now? Well she’s Your Truly Local Real Estate Agent of course!
Vanessa possesses a casual approach when dealing with her Buyers and Sellers. Sitting down to chat about your goals, your concerns, as well life itself, will make for an easy conversation with her. Her bubbly and kind personality is known to make people feel comfortable and feel like they have someone on their side, rather than the common feeling of intimidation when dealing with transactions of this magnitude. Her excitement about working alongside couples, families, investors and the like is what keeps her going in this competitive line of work.
Aside from her busy work life, Vanessa is happily raising a family with her loving spouse, Mathieu, in the charming community of Penetanguishene. She keeps herself busy with the kids, continuing her education, reading and volunteering. She also has a huge love for music, old movies and anything that’s furry and four-legged!

As the Director of Operations, Jessica works behind the scenes at Team Hawke Realty, overseeing operational activities, working with the team to set strategic goals, as well as researching and implementing new directives for business growth and prosperity.
Outside of work, Jessica enjoys spending time with family and friends, travelling, music, and all things food.
