Paul Oberman gained fame buying, restoring and leasing out historic buildings such as the Summerhill train station that is now an LCBO.

About 20 years ago Mr. Oberman hired Eve Lewis, owner of Urbanation and Market Vision Real Estate, to help him sell condos. The two fell in love, pooled their kids (his three and her three, ranging from two to eight years old) and married.

“Before I met Paul I thought I was an incredible risk-taker,” says Ms. Lewis now. “Then when he came along, I figured one of us would need to have a steady income.”

So she stuck to selling condos. With his company, Woodcliffe Landmark Properties, Mr. Oberman continued buying fixer-uppers. About seven years ago he bought four buildings on the west side of Market Street, just across from St. Lawrence Market.
