About Me

Mike Canning

I began my work at Patterson-Schwartz over 30 years ago, right out of college!

 

My career started in the Relocation division, assisting transferring families, locating local and destination resources. I transitioned into sales, where I assisted homeowners, buyers, and renters with all their real estate needs. I was recognized multiple times as a top-producer and nationally within the top 5% of residential sales agents. This success came through a constant commitment to details and proactively preparing my clients for any contingency. In the middle of my career, I was hired by an employee relocation company, seeking the benefit of both my previous relocation and residential sales experience. In this work, I was able to assist relocating families with challenges and stress that comes with making new connections and acclimating to a new city.

 

I missed the excitement!

 

I returned to the work that gave me the most professional satisfaction.  Buying and selling real estate is a roller coaster ride. Uprooting and moving can be unsettling. I like adding order and preparation to the process.  Knowing where to start and what is needed each step of the way, eliminates confusion, stress and uncertainty. If I do my job right, my buyers and sellers will feel exhilarated at the end of the ride!
