Hello, We're Purple
Times have changed. We are now in an era that primarily revolves around technology, where those who get the best results are at the forefront of the newest trends, embrace creativity, and don’t just think outside the box, they live there. Yet for some reason, the Real Estate industry in Calgary is stuck in the past, and so are most of the agents. With this in mind, we, as a team of driven, innovative, and technologically savvy Realtors, have set out to show Calgary how buying, selling, and investing in homes should look in the modern world. We are the Purple Realtors.
In the past, Realtors were necessary for two fundamental reasons. First, when buying, they were the gatekeepers of all crucial information necessary to make an informed to make an educated purchase of a home. However, now information is free and widely available on the Internet, accessible to anyone. Second, when selling, they had access to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), which led to a standard practice of uploading a property and then waiting for a buyer to come. Unfortunately, that is no longer enough to make a home stand out and attract buyers. In an era where the majority of peoples time is spend on their mobile device, there are new ways to advertise and market in order to actively attract buyers around the clock. That is where the Purple Realtors come in. With a focus on unique techniques that are at the leading edge of the latest technology and creating an experience that you’ll be eager to share with others, we are here to flip the industry upside down and create a new standard of execution and results. This is the New Era of Real Estate in Calgary.
“To give real service, you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity.”

Hello, I'm Brad Walker
Brad Walker has lived in the Calgary area his whole life. First growing up in Okotoks and now in Airdrie with his wife and two young children. He loves living in this area and is always exited to be helping people in one of his true areas of passion, real estate.
Brad was in the real estate space for over two years as an investor before deciding to become an agent. Through his time on the investment side he realized his true passion was home ownership and helping people achieve that. He also noticed many Realtors were not putting the full care into their clients that they deserve when they are making such a large investment. This is the moment Brad knew what he needed to do, and that was to get his real estate license.
Brads mission is to change the "norm" when it comes to real estate agents. It's time that real estate agents started truly doing what was best for the client. To make the experience exiting, efficient and easy for clients who are making potentially their biggest purchase of their lives.
This mission is what has drawn Brad to join forces with Purple Realtors. The agents here are on a similar mission to change the way that real estate is bought and sold to make it a better experience for all.
Hello, I'm Cole Porter
Cole was born and raised in Portage La Prairie, Manitoba, where she had moved to Calgary in 2007 to attend the University of Calgary and finished her degree in East Asian Languages. Prior to receiving her real estate license, she spent over a decade in the Restaurant Industry.
Cole decided to get into real estate after having her first child. Being at a crossroad with her previous career, she decided on something completely different! Being in control of her own business, creating her own success, along with the challenge of big projects were major factors in her decision to jump into real estate.
Cole’s favorite part of real estate is making the relationships that are developed through the process. She has always had a passion to help people, and real estate is a great way to make a difference in someone else’s life.
In Cole’s spare time, she and her husband like to get away with their kids. During the summer, they spend part of their time visiting family or on the lake. They also are huge golfers and in the winter, you can find them in mountains snowboarding on their days off.
One thing most don’t know about Cole is that after graduating high school she lived in Taiwan for a year, where she lived with four host families while studying Mandarin and the Chinese culture. It was an amazing experience that many people don’t get to have in their lifetime.
