About Our Team

Zhong Payne & Associates (ZPA) is a successful Toronto based, customer obsessed, full service, luxury focused real estate team. We utilize and leverage Sotheby’s International Realty Canada’s (SIRC) best-in-industry sales and marketing expertise in our business every day. ZPA pride themselves on taking care of their client’s needs in the same manner they would expect to be treated and stake their reputation on the many repeat and referral clients that make ZPA successful.

An Evolving Ever-Changing Industry

With over 25 years of real-world real estate knowledge, ZPA has seen all sorts of market shifts. From buyers’ markets to sellers’ markets (and everything in-between) we have the experience to advise, guide and thrive no matter what comes our way. We keep on top of market shifts being involved in several real estate think-tanks, by speaking to home builders, by speaking to our collogues across the world, by volunteering on TRREB, by not being rigid in our approach to our business and by keeping our ear to the ground. We are homeowners and investors like many of our clients.

Our Principals

Annie Zhong-Co-Founder
Born in Shanghai, one of the largest, most metropolitan and modern cities in the world Annie knows what the term “fast paced” is all about. From an early age Annie was interested in all things aesthetic-including high-end fashion, retail and many types of architecture. With a keen eye for not only the visually appealing Annie is astute and excels in strategy and financial analytics. For fun Annie enjoys music, dining, fashion, sneaker culture (she’s a hype beast) and cheering Toronto’s beloved 2019 World Champion Raptors.

Bradford Payne-Co-Founder
Bradford (Brad) Payne has been on just about every side of a real estate transaction and has had the privilege of buying and selling homes and commercial real estate locally across Toronto, York Region and Southwestern Ontario. With an approach to real estate that is analytical, approachable and authentic, Brad’s experience has shown him that no two real estate transaction are the same. An established turntablist (digital nowadays), Brad is equally at home playing electronic music for the masses as he is in the real estate world. Brad’s other interests outside of real estate include- sneaker culture, fashion, automobiles (EV for sure), sports and Dad jokes.

Luxury From A-Z

We know luxury top to bottom, not just real estate. The same way Sotheby’s auction house is entrusted to value everything from jewelry, art, pop culture, fashion, automobiles, sneakers and watches, ZPA also has a finger on the pulse of value. We use our relationships with Toronto’s luxury retailers as well our global relationships to stay current, relevant and informed about all trend’s luxury.
