Paul Gonwa, ALC®, Broker Associate

For Paul Gonwa, what once was a distant world of opportunity on the pages of a monthly magazine became his life’s passion. And he wouldn’t have it any 
other way.

It’s a scene reminiscent of almost any 20th century American household – a stack of old magazines all with matching distinctive yellow spines providing a glimpse of worlds otherwise unknown. For many, National Geographic exposed us to diverse cultures and faraway destinations through stunning photography and expert narrative. Paul Gonwa was no different. In fact, Paul was raised a “city boy,” but he credits his parents’ National Geographic magazines for developing a lifelong affection for the outdoors.

“For a kid living in the city, those magazines opened my eyes to many different places and cultures,” Paul says. “It made me want to get out in the open and explore the world, something I still enjoy doing to this day.”

Where some might reserve their passion for the outdoors to weekend escapes, Paul made it his livelihood. Following his heart, he attended the University of Illinois and graduated with a degree in forest management. For many years, he worked in the logging and lumber industry before transitioning into land development. He’s traveled to many different countries and experienced different cultures, but there’s nowhere he’s more passionate about than the land in his own backyard in Mississippi.

Paul enjoys hunting and the outdoors, and he eventually parlayed his passion for the land with his forestry and development background and turned his professional sights to helping others buy and sell land as a Realtor®. Whether you’re buying or selling recreational land, a home site, acreage to develop or investment-grade timberland, there’s no better resource throughout Mississippi than Paul to assist in your transaction.

When you work with Paul, his forestry background can expose you to investment opportunities you might not have otherwise considered. He always takes time to educate buyers about potential uses for a piece of land, and he utilizes an impressive suite of tools – including aerial photos and topographic maps – to ensure you have all the information you need in order to make the best decisions for your individual needs and desires.

What’s more, Paul is simply a good guy to work with. Genuine and down-to-earth, he loves what he does and it shows. He’s a member of the Realtors® Land Institute and involved in the community through Rotary Club, the Nature Conservancy, the local schools and in his church.

Unlike many investments, land ownership allows you to touch the trees, dig in the dirt and walk through the woods. If you’re considering the sale or purchase of land in Mississippi, make the most of your opportunities with Paul Gonwa at your side. Contact him today to discuss your needs, including 1031 tax-deferred exchanges, timber investments and land investment analysis.
