Brad Speck is Creative, Imaginative, Exuberant, and Talented

A NAGLREP Social Spotlight by Darla Michelsen

Brad Speck has been a Realtor in Phoenix Az. for over 2 years, after spending most of his career as a performance theatre and dance artist, something he is very passionate about and still currently involved in a Phoenix contemporary dance company.

After being asked to stage some homes for a Real Estate friend and really loving it, and finding he had a talent for it, he surprisingly discovered that a lot of his performance background and working with models and actors negotiations in the past really gave him a great step up for going into Real Estate. Brad recently got to show case his talents in a recent episode of HGTV House Hunters and found it to be a very rewarding and challenging experience, in regards to the process and how it became an inside joke at how many times it took him to drive his car to up the house, 20 takes??


Brad has a drive to provide the best service and wants to continue to learn and grow in his Real Estate business and with all his energy I have no doubts he will succeed.
