Brian Burns

Associate Broker



Brian Burns believes there are 3 qualities that separate the best from the rest: communication, listening and understanding. He explains, “I like to listen, ask questions and really try to understand what it is my clients want, and more importantly, why they want it.”

This effective communication style has lead Brian’s real estate business to thrive. It’s no secret: the key to a long, successful career in real estate is repeat and referral business. That’s why Brian’s only goal is his clients’ happiness. As he puts it, “I’m truly blessed and grateful that nearly 90% of my business is repeat and referrals from happy clients.”

Originally licensed in California in 1989, Brian moved to Breckenridge, Colorado in 1992. He became a Broker in 1994 and established his own independent firm. After 12 years as a Broker/Owner in the Rockies, he decided to move to a less snowy location, and did a complete 180º landing in the desert. He’s been with Sotheby’s International Realty since 2008.

Aside from work, Brian enjoys being outdoors in nature. “Hiking, golfing, snowboarding and wakeboarding are among my favorite activities. And I truly enjoy all the fun Las Vegas has to offer…shows, concerts, amazing restaurants and more.” Brian lives in Summerlin with his wife, Nancy, and their english bulldog, Tito.
