1365542978Carmel Realty Company is proud to congratulate Mike Canning on reaching his 25th year as the perennial leader at the top of our local real estate markets.


Over the last 25 years, Mike has represented as many buyers and sellers of properties above $10,000,000 as all other agents combined. He has handled the highest priced properties in Pebble Beach, Carmel and Carmel Valley, including some truly extraordinary properties: The Crocker Castle, the property containing the new 5th hole at Pebble Beach, the Fish Ranch and The Butterfly House, to name a few.

Of course, he has been wise and fortunate enough to surround himself with great talent, who also deserve recognition: his long-suffering wife Nancy, who¹s expertly and creatively handled marketing work since the beginning; his gracious and capable partner, Lynn Knoop; Amanda English, his assistant and right arm for the past 8 years, Tomi Williams, his incredible former assistant of 10 years and Jessica Canning, his daughter, who brings Fortune 500 experience in analytics and digital marketing to the team and is helping to take the business to entirely new levels while continuing the pursuit of excellence.As significant as the properties he has represented are, it is the relationships that Mike has formed with his clients, who look to Mike year after year to shepherd them through complex transactions of which he is most proud.
