Real Estate and Restaurants…

Paul Zweben epitomizes them both.

With the goal of “making every guest in his restaurants happy”, Paul started his career in 1979, cooking with passion at some of the finest establishments in the country. After working at River Café and the Breakers Hotel, he formed a restaurant partnership in 1993 which made him a major part of fine dining establishments such as RAIN, CALLE OCHO, BLT PRIME AND DJANGO

In 1993 Paul found his second passion, real estate, and bought his first apartment building in what was then the unknown Windsor Terrace section of Brooklyn. He continued to accumulate ownership of deeds and managed multiple residences throughout Brooklyn and Manhattan.

Today, an extreme “whatever it takes attitude” in both fields is what makes Paul Zweben your ideal real estate agent for either side of the transaction.
