Paul J. Ciano, Qualifying Broker/Owner

I started my Real Estate career in 1995 & continue to expand my knowledge & experience as a Real Estate Professional. Recently it was an honor to have been selected as "Realtor of the Year for 2010" by the Silver City Regional Board of Realtors®. In addition to sales, I've worked as a Property Manager & in 1998 completed the course study to become a licensed Registered Real Estate Appraiser within the State of New Mexico.
While apprenticing as a Fee Appraiser for a prominent local Appraiser, I was offered a position with the Grant County Assessors Office as a Field Appraiser & was solely responsible for appraising the Commercial & Business Personal Property within Grant County.
Prior to my Real Estate career, my true love for our community was further developed when I became the Co-Manager for the Silver City Main Street Project and worked with Downtown Business Owners to promote the Downtown Historic District.
In Boston in 1978, after spending almost 5 years as a Police Officer, I was trained in the field of smoking cessation & over the next 2 decades became one of the Country’s most experienced & leading experts in the field of Positive Behavior Modification for Smoking Cessation. I have helped thousands & thousands of cigarette smokers in New England, California, Arizona, New Mexico & even in South Africa, break their smoking habit.
In 2000, I retired from the Army Reserves as a Sergeant First Class after serving 29 years as a Military Police Platoon Sergeant. I am a Desert Storm Veteran and was honored to received the Joint Service Commendation Medal. It is also my hope & desire to assist other Veterans with their property needs.
Another true love of mine, is writing & playing music. I play bass guitar & sing with a Classic Rock, Blues & Country music Band, BULLARD STREET STATION, http://bullardstreetstation.com
