CHRISTIAN IS FROM LUXEMBOURG, BUT HE SPEAKS YOUR LANGUAGE.
Growing up in Luxembourg, Christian Vermast became fluent in French, German, English and, of course, Luxembourgish. Naturally, with so many languages in his repertoire, he didn’t wait long to venture beyond the borders of one of the world’s smallest countries. He still returns to Europe as often as he can, though, to visit family and ski in the Alps. He especially loves the Austrian Tyrol and a small resort near Innsbruck that his grandparents called their own.
Christian explores his Canadian backyard as well, from the Rockies to Quebec’s remote Le Massif, where near-vertical trails plummet to the St. Lawrence. What he likes best about these adventures is reuniting with people he enjoys – or – sharing an exhilarating downhill run with someone new. He looks for that same human dimension on the tennis court, whether reading the actions of the person across the net or moving in sync with his doubles partner. It’s all about making a connection, he says; just like learning a language.
Christian first came to Toronto on a three-month visit. He found it so appealing, he’s still here more than a decade later. He backs up his business expertise with a law degree and several years as a consultant to international investors. But what distinguishes him most is his ability, through all the strategy and emotion surrounding a home sale or purchase, to make a connection between people. Because that’s what our business ultimately comes down to helping buyers and sellers bridge differing expectations to communicate with one another.
