PAUL ZAMMIT REAL ESTATE
- Top 20 team for volume and average DOM
Paul Zammit has taken a circuitous route to becoming leader of one of the most successful independent teams in the GTA. Zammit started his career with Royal LePage, then ran his own firm for ten years and followed that up with a highly productive decade with RE/MAX. Even with the experience he gained from previously working on his own, Zammit says the return to independence was still daunting. “I don’t think a lot of people have the comfort level of leaving a brokerage like I did,” he says. Zammit compares building an independent team to initiating a start-up. “You don’t necessarily have stats and you don’t have what the big company was providing you in terms of overall regions.” But what Zammit did have, and what he says team leaders need when they start out, is extensive prior exposure, a strong local brand and an impeccable reputation.
