One difference between Paul Maranger and his twin brother is that Paul speaks Spanish with an Argentine accent. At least that's what his tutor told him during a recent stay in Mexico City. Paul took it as a compliment – and proof that his earlier sojourn with a family in Buenos Aires had served him well. He loves to take these kinds of holidays, blending language lessons with total immersion in local culture and cuisine. And when he's back in Toronto, his Spanish teacher drops by the office once a week to keep him on his game.
It was the same thing when Paul headed off to Paris after getting his BCom. He spent a year teaching English and fine-tuning his French. Then, after earning an MBA, he crossed the ocean again and worked for one of France's major banks. His financial career eventually brought him home to Toronto, where he discovered his love for real estate. It's an all-consuming commitment, seven days a week. But when the opportunity arises he'll escape work on another cultural adventure – maybe in Guadalajara this time, mixing Spanish lessons with theatre, music and incredible meals to inspire his own culinary creations.
Paul has the credentials you'd expect of someone ranked in the top 1% of Toronto real estate agents: the Certified Residential Specialist designation; appearances on Lynda Reeve's House & Home and Style by Jury, and in magazines such as Style at Home. But we think the real secret of Paul's success may be his sensitivity, as a twin, to what makes people unique. Because that's what our business is ultimately about: helping buyers and sellers get to a decision that's uniquely right for them. And when it comes to making that happen, Paul's one of a kind.
