Brad Fricke–REaltor

About Me

Most 18-year-olds think about which concert they’d like to attend or what they might major in in college. When I turned 18, I learned about the value of real estate when I sold my first property on a land contract.

I’m passionate about real estate. My work experience runs the gamut: from investing, advertising, to general contracting of homes. Acquiring my Real Estate license was a natural evolution of my career growth.

Providing professional and reliable services in an approachable, accessible way is my brand: putting people over properties. All of my experience and expertise guided me to the path of providing clients with a smooth and rewarding real estate experience. It’s real estate as it should be.


Omaha, Nebraska based

REal Estate Broker

Growing up on Beaver Lake, my dad taught me to avoid the poison ivy bushes when we looked at properties. I learned a lot from him. Decades before the house flipping reality TV craze, I flipped my first property in just six months! Let’s just say I was hooked from there. Now it is my turn to guide you away from the “poison ivy bushes” of real estate.

As a young married couple, my wife Tracy and I spent a few months searching for a home. We decided to purchase land at Beaver Lake where we designed and built our first home. We did most of the work ourselves with the help of family and friends.

In 2003, we decided to build again in the Millard area where we raised our family.


I’ve been celebrating sold signs since I was only 5 years old!

Growing up with parents who had real estate investments, I learned early on how stressful real estate experiences can be, and the importance of having a professional guide.

For Me, Everything Always Comes Back To Family

Many people like to call it their free time, but I like to call it family time. My beautiful wife Tracy and I got married in 2000 and have three wonderful children. Like most people, we enjoy traveling and showing the kids new places. Among our favorite adventures was a blissful week in Maui, Hawaii in 2016. Our kids actually wanted to move there after a few days in the sun!

Growing up at Beaver Lake, living in the Omaha area, and getting ready for our next move, one thing is for sure: Nebraska is our home and I wouldn’t trade the time I spend with my family for anything. Although my kids didn’t grow up water skiing every day on the lake like their dad did, I make sure they get frequent opportunities to learn and enjoy it too. Making memories with my family is everything to me.

Absolutely amazed by the performance Brad did with scouting out things in the homes we saw. He was very honest about things he was worried about in homes we looked at or any part in the process. This is our second time buying a home and I wish we went with him the first time! He was involved in every aspect and I knew we could message/ call him with any questions we had. Even after the sale he’s still there answering questions for us! 100% recommend him for anyone wanting an honest agent who’s not trying to rush you into the first house you see just to make a quick buck.

Brad is phenomenal! As a first time buyer I was nervous, and unsure of what I wanted, but Brad was patient and guided me through the process with ease. He was proactive about the properties I was interested in, always quick to respond, and very knowledgeable. He really knows his stuff and more than that, is an awesome human being to work with. I recommend Brad to everyone I know, 12/10.

I highly recommend Brad! He provided outstanding service selling my home and helping me purchase a new home. Brad understands that it is not just a house he is selling, but it is someone’s home with years of memories. I completely trusted him and had confidence in him. I can’t imagine anyone better!

Brad, was very professional and took the time to really learn what I was looking for in a home. I had previously worked with other agents in a Nebraska town that would attempt to pressure me into buying a property even though I told them it wasn't right for me. Brad did not pressure anything at all. He made sure everything was the right fit for me and supportive through the entire process. I would highly reccomend Brad!
