The Team


Paul J. Sullivan, B.A.

Paul Sullivan joined Burgess, Cawley, Sullivan and Associates (BCS) in 1992, and became a partner in 2004. On graduation from the University of British Columbia, he approached Geoff Burgess, who persuaded Paul to join the firm. He began learning the appraisal side of the business, but soon found his passion in the tax appeal aspects of BCS.

Mr. Sullivan is not only head of the property tax division here at BCS, he is the most renowned property tax specialists in British Columbia. Every year, Paul and his team save clients millions of dollars in annual property taxes. He not only negotiates on clients’ behalf; he appears as an advocate during BC Assessment appeals process.

Paul spends his leisure time cycling, windsurfing and skiing. He enjoys spending time with his wife and daughters.
