G. SHAWN MAHER
FOUNDER OF GS MAHER PROPERTY HOLDINGS LTD.
From Hamilton kid to international hairband rock star in Sven Gali, to award-winning video producer, to private investor — Shawn Maher is living an interesting life by any standard! And now, he’s adding townhouse developer to his list of achievements.
His mentor is George H. Ross, Executive Vice President and Senior Counsel for the Trump Organization, and Donald Trump’s adviser on The Apprentice television show. Maher credits much of his success to Ross, his mentor. The pair met after being seated at the same table at a networking dinner in Toronto and hit it off. Ross is guiding Maher in his new line of work. “I have the same adviser as Donald Trump, believe it or not — and I’m from Hamilton,” Maher says with a laugh. “George took a liking to me and believed in what I could do.”
Maher has a passion for real estate and making things happen. “I got all my ideas from travelling and Central Park and being in New York,” Maher said. His background includes the development of multi-family dwellings. He has a prestigious portfolio of commercial and residential listings in different regions, including Hamilton, Niagara Toronto, and Burlington.
Maher is proud to have the opportunity to assist in the revitalization of the Hamilton core with his new project, The Corktowns. Maher’s project is one of several high-profile housing developments in the works in central Hamilton. The three-storey, 1,400-square-foot townhouses have three bedrooms and three bathrooms each and start at $289,000 to $309,000.
