Brad Bird
Broker of Record
Brad became a part-owner of Mincom Plus Realty Inc. in April, 1989. Now he is the Broker of Record. Brad’s sales achievements are impressive. He is results oriented and built a solid reputation by helping both homebuyers and homesellers. Brad believes homes sell because buyers want them. It’s his job to help sellers make informed choices about pricing, presentation, and negotiating. Extensive advertising increases the likelihood that homebuyers will call. Additionally, honesty, no sales pressure and excellent service lessen the stress that most people feel when purchasing or selling a home. When Brad does these things and more, the result is usually SOLD.
