The founding principal of one of Western Australia’s most successful real estate agencies, Paul has achieved some of the highest awards the industry has to offer across Australia.
Paul Tonich was born in Perth, Western Australia in 1972. Together with his three sisters and younger brother, Paul grew up watching his entrepreneurial parents, create and run three businesses 7 days a week to provide for their five children.
After graduating from high school in the late 80’s, Paul followed his dream and joined the Western Australian Police Force. He served ten years developing specialist skills as a trained negotiator and detective – dedicated and passionate about his responsibility to the community and determined to make a difference. With regular commendations from his superiors Paul was earmarked for a long and successful career in the force - until a chain of events on one fateful day destroyed his police career and landed him in a maximum security prison among the states worst criminals.
With no career, no income, his reputation in tatters and no idea of what the future would bring, Paul utilised his time in prison to make decisions about the rest of his life. Soon after leaving the WA Police Service and serving his sentence, Paul began a career in Real Estate Sales. With no formal business training, but a determination to succeed and rebuild his life, Paul set out to meet and study some of Australia's most successful business people.
Ten years on Paul has managed to achieve what most would achieve in a lifetime. The founding principal of one of Western Australia’s most successful real estate agencies, Paul has achieved some of the highest awards the industry has to offer across Australia including:
