Alan Canas

Advisory Board Member

Recognized as one of the Bay Area’s top realtors, Alan Canas is a member of the National Association of Realtors, San Francisco Association of Realtors and San Mateo Association of Realtors.

Alan began his career in 2007 with Cashin & Company, a boutique independent brokerage in Burlingame, CA. When Cashin & Company was acquired by Coldwell Banker in 2009, Alan stayed on. In 2012, he joined Today Sotheby’s International Realty where he became the number one producing agent for 2015 in the high volume Burlingame office. Alan has been one of the Top 10 realtors in every office since 2008.

After speaking at the 2016 Sotheby’s International Global Network Event, Alan was invited to affiliate with the corporate office of Sotheby’s International Realty’s San Francisco brokerage. The office does over two billion dollars a year and offers unparalleled access to the fine homes, luxury estates, and condominiums in this sophisticated and culturally diverse area.

“The Bay area from Atherton to Tiburon is one of the most desirable areas in the world. And Sotheby’s has built a global reputation for buying and selling the most desirable properties,” says Alan.

Alan is quick to point out that “When I list a property, I can put together a highly customized marketing program to expose my client’s property to highly qualified prospects around the world. This is an essential first step to ensuring that the property will command top dollar and that the transaction will be completed in the shortest time possible.”

Alan’s affiliation with Sotheby also benefits buyers. Says Alan “My entire team is committed to helping our buyers understand the subtle differences between the communities in our area. We do everything possible to ensure that they have the information they need to select the perfect neighborhood on the perfect street for their families. It’s the first step in our proprietary four-step process that helps our buyers get into the home of their dreams with a minimum of frustration.”

Recognizing the need to provide flawless management of complex transactions for his high demand clients, Alan has assembled The Alan Canas Team which reflects his philosophy that “A team outperforms an individual.”

Before starting in the real estate business, Alan was a co-founder of an online business and an account manager for CIGNA Healthcare. A Bay Area native, Alan holds a degree in Business Management, is married and has an adorable daughter.
