Family ties lured Brad Shearer to Florida's Treasure Coast where he has resided in Vero Beach since 1986. A native of Wichita, Kansas, Brad satisfied his interest in automobiles by working his way through college with jobs in car dealerships ranging from Chevrolet to Porsche and Rolls-Royce. For 14 years Brad worked as a hardwood lumber trader with a Vero Beach based wholesale hardwood company, supplying domestic and South American hardwoods to furniture manufacturers and custom millwork producers throughout North America. Brad started his real estate career in 2001 and quickly found success in the residential sector, earning "Rookie Of The Year" and continuing as a consistent top producer. Brad demonstrated his dedication to excellence by earning both the Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) and Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI) designations within his first two years in the industry, and attributes his success in real estate to his goal of making each customer feel they are his only customer. Brad and his wife, Jeanie, are avid snow skiers, and charter members of the Vero Beach Ski Club, where Brad acts as delegate to the Florida Ski Council. The Shearers enjoy an active lifestyle including running, biking and kayaking plus hiking and white water rafting in the mountains of North Carolina. Brad takes daily runs with his rescued hound dog "Bentley" and golden retriever "Chester."
