Greetings! It's great to have you here. Let me take a moment to introduce myself. I was born and raised in Calgary, and I have been living here for 47 years. I truly appreciate this amazing city and all that it has to offer. Having grown up in various neighborhoods in the South East and South West, I have a deep understanding of the city's diverse communities. Real estate is in my blood, and I am passionate about helping people find their perfect home. When I'm not working, I love spending time with my wife and four children, skiing at Nakiska, mountain biking in Fish Creek, rollerblading, and participating in other outdoor activities. In addition to real estate, I have been coaching youth hockey for several years, served as the Director of IT at our children's school, and organized the annual golf tournament for six years. If you share my love for hockey, we have something in common! I've been a fan of the Flames since I was a child, and I have cherished memories of meeting Lanny McDonald. Whenever possible, I attend the games, but I also enjoy watching at home and pausing the game to say goodnight to my kids. Above all, I am a people person, and I enjoy connecting with others in the community. Thank you for visiting my page, and I look forward to speaking with you soon.
Brad made the entire buying process fun and exciting. Took the stress right out of it. He took care of any behind-the-scenes work and was continually checking in with the builder's solicitors and our lawyers to make sure the house would go through in time for possession. Was a peaceful and encouraging presence to have around! Would highly recommend Brad to any buyer or seller out there! - Colin
Reply: Thank you Colin & Tasia for the kind words! Having a new baby the last thing you needed was added stress! I was happy to take care of all the details for you! I am so excited for you guys and this next chapter of your lives.
Brad was incredibly helpful and walked me through the home-buying process from start-to-finish. As a first-time buyer, this alleviated a lot of stress that I had about making the largest financial decision of my life. In such a competitive market, you need a realtor who is responsive and proactive. Brad over-delivered in this area, in my opinion. An exemplary example was when I couldn't make a last-minute mid-day showing, Brad drove to the house for me and toured me around on FaceTime. The home I ended up buying went on the market at 8pm on Monday and sold by 11pm on Tuesday. I wouldn't have been able to get it if I had a realtor that took two hours to respond to me. For this reason, I've recommended Brad to friends and family alike. The CIR Realty web-portal that Brad provided to me was very useful, but had a few shortcomings. I found the best approach was to use realtor.ca in combination with his web-portal to search for homes. - Daniel
Reply: Daniel, I so enjoyed working with you and our discussions at night about all the projects and things you were planning. I enjoyed you did your homework and loved to ask questions. I love working with first time buyers and working with you was a wonderful experience and look forward to your renovations and updates. Congratulations on getting this gem of a home.
It was a pleasure dealing with Brad. He was professional, provided excellent guidance and advice, property pictures showcased the property well. Brad went above and beyond to research the property and ensure an excellent, supportive experience and a favorable outcome. I would highly recommend Brad if you are looking to buy or sell property. - Karilynn
Reply: I am grateful for the trust you've shown me throughout your real estate journey. It's been my pleasure to assist you in selling your condo.
Although meeting Brad was a chance encounter, I am incredibly satisfied with the way that things have turned out with Brad being our realtor. My husband and I were looking to purchase our first home in Cochrane, with a move-in date of 2-3 months after our search starting date. Within a couple of days of meeting Brad, he was collecting information about our house preferences and was sending us listings soon after. He accepted any feedback that we had regarding listings and made an effort to tailor the house listings that he sent to our preferences. When it came to attending in-person showings of houses, he was fantastic for scheduling multiple showings after one another. I will never forget how we came across our dream home - we were in Cochrane looking at houses when we came across another home that was not on our list but that was having an open house...which happened to be ending in 10 minutes while we were a 10 minute drive away! Brad contacted the other real estate agent and convinced her to stay a bit longer for us. From there, the rest was history. Brad offered us tips and tricks to help us secure the home when there was a competing offer, including writing a personalized letter to the sellers. After "purchasing" our home, Brad lead us through the process of having a home inspection done, made recommendations for real estate lawyers, and even did our 24 hour pre-move in walkthrough for us as we were out of town. Overall, Brad has been a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a realtor. He's become like family to us with how much he's supported us through the process of purchasing our first home. - Alexandra Campbell

This is the 4th property we have sold with Brad, and arguably the most important, our principle residence. In all our transactions Brad has provided a very thorough analysis of the competitive environment and offered us very insightful advice as to how best optimize our listings to secure the best terms in both price and conditions. I think the best compliment I can add is that after he sold 3 rental properties for us in Spring 2022 we reached out to him to secure him to sell our most valuable asset, our forever home. Great work, much appreciated, Brad. - Rob Wilson

Brad was excellent!!! If you know me, I can be very picky and that can be frustrating for many. With Brad, he took that in stride and was 100% professional, patient, outstanding in providing updates and recommendations on homes. With the many homes (25+ in a few months) that we went through, he pointed out the positives and negatives which I very much appreciated; and was very thorough I might add. That is simply because from the very beginning, he questioned me thoroughly to ensured he knew what I wanted. Not to mention, he was open and honest and realistic with me. Whenever we met up, whether at a home or meeting at Timmies to discuss homes, he always was upbeat, cheerful and smiling. He also kept me posted via emails, texts and phone calls with updates and such and he was very conscious of when and was always prompt in responding back. Brad from beginning to my purchase, made this process very easy for me and I am beyond grateful. Very highly recommended. He WILL find you that home that you are looking for and not only with what you desire, but within your price range as well. Happy house hunting!!! - Craig

We were referred to Brad Prather, a Realtor at CIR and we are so glad we were. Brad was exactly what I was looking for. He helped us understand what was going on in the market and took the time to help us make an educated decision not just an emotional one. He found out exactly what our families needs were our currently and made sure we were in a place that would let us grow. Anytime a home came on the market that matched our criteria, he made sure we knew about it immediately. Brad was also very responsive. He got back to us within a half an hour anytime we had questions and he was always already at the home and waiting for us with answers to any questions we might have about it. If he did not know the answer, he found it, then and there. Mr. Prather is also incredibly personable. On top of being exceptionally good at his job he felt like a friend after the first showing and certainly is a friend now. I was very picky when it came to finding my home. It took us many months with numerous showings and multiple offers. Brad worked hard for us and . We love our new home and we would recommend Brad to anyone who wants a realtor who takes them seriously, cares that you, the client, gets exactly the home you are looking for rather than quickly trying to "sell" you for a commission and move on and will work hard to make sure that you not only find a house, but your home. - Michael DeMay
