Brad Richardson
Brad Richardson is a licensed Real Estate agent and co-founder of Edmonton HQ.

Brad was drawn to Real Estate for as long as he can remember. Even throughout his 15+ years as a restauranteur, it was a daily practice for him to follow the housing market and peruse the inventory of homes for sale. Finally, one day, a friend urged him to pursue a career in real estate since he clearly enjoyed it, had a rich background in customer service and was extremely detail oriented.

Engaged to his fiancé Laura, Brad’s favourite things to do in Edmonton is to check out new and interesting restaurants in and around the city and to walk around Edmonton’s beautiful legislature grounds. As an avid sports fan, Brad also hopes to visit every pro sports arena in North America. He’s already been to 14. Ask him about it sometime!

While winning awards is not a big motivator for Brad, he frequently finds himself on the receiving end of production milestones with Maxwell and is consistently listed as one of Edmonton’s Top 15% of agents. The one award he is extremely proud of is the “Givers Gain” Award handed out by BNI to one person each year out of 800+ members for exemplifying the spirit of giving to others.

When asked what his favourite neighbourhood in Edmonton is, Brad loves Laurier Heights. Nestled in Edmonton’s beautiful river valley, Laurier Heights is close to everything. As a mature neighbourhood with tons of rejuvenation currently taking place, Brad would move from his home in Keswick in a heartbeat if he could only find his perfect home.

Brad is a proud Edmonton Realtor; through Edmonton HQ and MaxWell Progressive, he would love to help you buy or sell a home in the city he is proud to call home.

Michael Draper
Michael Draper is a Real Estate agent and co-founder of Edmonton HQ. 

Born and raised in Edmonton, Michael has an intimate knowledge of every community this city has to offer. He has witnessed extraordinary growth and change that has transformed Edmonton into a desired destination for people in all stages of life.

Michael and his wife Tracy live in Sherwood Park with their toddler Colton and dog Parker. He ventured into real estate in Edmonton after working for several years in the bustling hospitality industry of Victoria, BC. After returning to Edmonton, he pursued positions with manufactured homes and area homebuilders, but felt constrained by representing just one product. Becoming a Realtor, Michael was able to blend all the elements he enjoyed from the customer service industry and new homes sales: meeting new people, building long-term relationships and matching clients with the perfect home.

With a young family, Michael’s favourite things to do in Edmonton are spending time with friends and family and taking advantage of all the wonderful family friendly activities there are in Edmonton. Also an avid sports fan, Michael loves to attend an Oilers game when he can, but really enjoys watching the action from the comfort of his own home.

Boasting an unprecedented rate of repeat business and referrals, Michael has quickly established himself as a prominent figure in the Edmonton Real Estate community. While having been ranked in Edmonton’s elite Top 5% of all agents, as well as frequently receiving Brokerage Top 5 Agents honours.

Michael’s favourite neighbourhood in Edmonton is Capilano. Its neighbourhood design is beautiful, with many homes that are tiered down to the river. The area boasts mature trees, parks, and amenities which appeal to individuals and families. With plenty of greenspace and parks, Capilano is also very quickly accessible to downtown, the river and the Anthony Henday. As a mature neighbourhood, it is also going through renewal with several infill projects throughout.

Michael continues to build his legacy, growing the Edmonton HQ team and brand through MaxWell Progressive to meet an even wider variety of client needs. His innate knowledge of Edmonton’s hidden gems and neighbourhoods, coupled with a passion for his work, make Michael an unequivocal go-to resource for all things real estate.
