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.
Since joining Canning Properties Group in 2014, Nic has been involved in over $700M in sales – delivering desired results for over 160 clients. 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.
An economist at heart, Nic continually analyzes local, regional, and national markets to keep his clients updated with real-time data analytics - empowering them to intelligently navigate through our evolving marketplace. While welcoming clients with interests or investments across all regions of the Monterey Peninsula. Nic specializes in the areas of Carmel-By-The-Sea and Pebble Beach to provide clients with unparalleled market knowledge and expertise in these sub-regions.
When Nic’s not out on the Town helping clients, you can find him playing at his home in Carmel or on the beach with his son (Ryder) and 2 daughters (Madison & Sydney) or on a golf course pursuing that perfect round.
Canning Properties Group represented us as buyers when we bought our home in Otter Cove in Carmel Highlands, and were extremely knowledgeable, service minded and helpful in the process. We must have come down at least 5 times to spend most of a day looking at properties and each time they spent hours with us patiently showing us everything that was for sale, never rushing us or pushing us to do anything we were not comfortable with. Once we found the place we wanted to buy they were great in helping us negotiate a good (and fair) price, and invaluable when it came to guiding us though due diligence and helping us understand all aspects of the house...— Stephan
