Get to know Paul Burns
I have been a REALTOR for over 21 years. I hold a Manager's license and I'm part owner of CENTURY 21 Countryside Realty. I graduated from the University of New Brunswick as a Survey Engineer and still maintain my P.Eng. designation. I grew up in a construction family, and was a partner in a land surveying and General Contracting business prior to joining Century21. I am a believer in lifetime learning and have taken many courses over the past 21 years to broaden my knowledge of all aspects of our industry. I am comfortable dealing with residential, commercial and investment properties. I have also sold businesses as well.
I believe that a community is built by its volunteers. I do a lot of volunteer work within my profession at the local and Provincial level, with groups like the Heart and Stroke Foundation of NB, in minor hockey and with my church. You can go to my website, www.paul-burns.ca to see more about what I do and the great community I live in.
I also like to write children's books. My first was published in 2008 and was titled "Owen and the Dinosaur". My second one was published in June of 2011 and is titled "Emily Finds a Dragon". I am also working on a Young Adult series.
I believe a community is defined by its volunteers and I also believe in giving back to the community as well as my profession. Here are some of the areas I am currently volunteering in or have done so in the past:
