Meet The Team



Deciding to buy a new home or sell your property is a big decision, one we take very seriously. When you choose Team Hawke Realty, you have a whole team working for you, from your designated agent(s) and broker to the administrative team, every member has your best interests at heart.


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 sales 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 client's best interests at heart. The Team Hawke vision is “fulfilling our client's 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”.


I've lived in the Southern Georgian Bay are most of my life, having lived and owned properties in Tay Township, Midland, and Penetang. I was raised in the Real Estate business, watching my father, Jim. I was eager to join the business and received my Real Estate Licence in 2007. I enjoy working with clients from many different walks of life, and at varying points of life; there is so much insight to gain through the different perspectives each client brings to every transaction. I believe in being an advocate for my clients, guiding them through the buying or selling process, which is for many, their largest investment. Throughout my career, I have been involved in a number of large renovations, which have broadened my knowledge and understanding of the components of a home as well as design. These skills help me navigate with buyers on what to look for beyond the cosmetics of a home and see the potential.

I am originally from Port McNicoll but now reside in Midland with my wife Darlene, and daughter Tanya. I am the proud father of two other grown children Ashley and Nathan and the grandfather of four, two girls and two boys. My background has always been in the Building Industry from an owner/operator of a plumbing business, as a Pro Desk Agent in various Hardware Retail Stores, to a Home Inspector in the surrounding area. These bits of knowledge gained along this path have led me to accomplish my most rewarding times and challenging endeavors in the Real Estate Industry. I am loving every minute of it!! I have always been a people person and have enjoyed volunteer work as a past Coach and President in Midland Minor Hockey, as well as past Coach in Midland Minor Lacrosse, and Midland Minor Baseball. I continue today to volunteer with the Midland Civitan Club. I enjoy sitting with clients and learning what they foresee their needs in a new home are, and guiding them through this life-changing event. Together we can make the largest purchase of their life a reality. Working with sellers who may be looking to upsize or downsize in this area is something that brings me joy. With previous personal experience in the Investment Property Industry, I look forward to bringing all areas to the discussion table. Let us talk, together we can make it happen!
