Agent Spotlight: Brad Willems

Bradbrad willems Willems joined RE/MAX Momentum about three and a half years ago after spending 20 years in custom home construction as well as two years as an appraiser and another year as a small business lobbyist. His path to a career in real estate was by accident – literally. Brad was in a severe car accident that left him in the hospital for a month, followed by 18 months of a variety of rehabilitations including speech, cognitive, vocational and psychological. Eager to rejoin the workforce, he started applying for jobs as soon as he had medical clearance only to find that the work restrictions resulting from the accident made it nearly impossible to find employment. With frustrations at their peak, Brad had a meaningful discussion with his wife and she suggested selling real estate since he had spent so much time in construction. He called a friend of his – who was already a RE/MAX Momentum agent – for advice and the rest is history. 

Brad prides himself on simplifying real estate for his clients, largely due to his ability to combine his expertise with his unique sense of humor. He brings levity to every transaction, making it feel virtually care-free and appear that building enduring relationships with his clients is effortless. He never presents a problem without having a few solutions already prepared and truly loves his job. There’s no denying it; Brad earned RE/MAX’s Executive Club Award in his first year and the 100% Club Award in year two. Additionally, in 2015 he was the recipient of RE/MAX Momentum’s Heart of Momentum, which is awarded annually to one person in the company that embodies the organization’s values, dedication and professionalism. And, to top it all off, last year Brad sold more houses on one street than the average agent sells in a year! 

Outside of the office, he loves spending time with his wife and three daughters. That doesn’t happen too often these days as his two oldest daughters are in college. Brad is an avid golfer, but simply loves to be outside. From watching the sunrise on the first tee box to watching the sunset on a patio, he’s happiest to be outside in the Colorado sunshine. On the weekends, he can usually be found wherever a Nebraska Husker or Denver Broncos game is playing. He also recently had season tickets for the Colorado Avalanche. Brad wakes up excited every morning, feeling privileged that his clients trust him to achieve all of their real estate goals. The secret to his success? “Working works,” he says. “I will not be outworked.”
