Growing up in a real estate family on the Monterey Peninsula, Nic embraced a rare opportunity of being raised in this captivating coastal community while learning the multi-faceted world of real estate from his parents – Mike and Nancy Canning. With Mike pioneering the way and Nancy working for a local architectural firm, Nic became enthralled with local real estate at an early age. Nic’s fascination with real estate developed into a lifelong passion for the unique architecture and lifestyle this area has to offer.

Employing second-generation experience and deep local knowledge, Nic provides his clients with invaluable insights into this area’s various neighborhoods, market dynamics, and lifestyles. This depth of local market knowledge is further exemplified through his intuitive approach to matching clients with their perfect destination.
While earning a business degree at CSUMB, Nic continued giving back to his beloved community by volunteering his spare time at local non-profits and public schools. Also while in school, Nic developed a passion for martial arts, where he attained a black belt in Renshinkan Karate-Do and later won it's Pan-American Championship (in ’07). Nic brings the skill sets he acquired through martial arts – integrity, respect, and discipline - into his real estate career, where these same values provide the foundation for every one of his relationships.
