Top Performing Agent Year After Year

MEET  ALAN  CANAS

Alan Canas absolutely loves his work, and his success is a testament to that fact. Recognized as one of the Bay Area’s top realtors, Alan is a top-producer and has negotiated over 400 transactions, working with sellers and buyer alike.

Alan’s compassion and unwavering motivation have earned him a loyal following of extremely satisfied clients. His process is different from most real estate agents. When Alan lists a home, his goal is to get the seller more money, in less time. He takes care to professionally update and stage the property quickly and expertly, keying into details that are most appealing to buyers. Videos, drone and 3D Matterport tours, and targeted marketing follow, thoughtfully connecting the story of the home with qualified buyers. His highly-customized marketing program exposes his listings to prospects from around the world, an essential first step to ensuring that the property commands top-dollar, and that the transaction is completed in the shortest amount of time.

When you buy a home with Alan as your agent, you benefit from his extensive local knowledge, his highly collaborative relationships with other agents, and his proprietary six-step process,which helps buyers get into the home of their dreams. The secret ingredient to Alan’s success is flawless and authentic communication. Alan has taught classes on this proprietary process: “How to ensure your bid is the winning bid, even when it’s not the top price”.

Alan’s deep love for his husband, daughter and his large extended family means that he values his time, as well as yours. He takes on only motivated clients and works tirelessly to make their buying or selling experience brief and successful.

           Experience  &  Expertise

THE ALAN CANAS TEAM

The reality of today’s real estate market is this: you will probably be the one to find your next home. The average home seeker checks the Internet multiple times daily, scouring property websites and pouring through hundreds of listings. In this competitive market, who you have negotiating for you is essential to securing the home.

When working with The Alan Canas Team, our clients are surprised at the ease of the process. With us, houses that have been previously on the market will sell in just a few weeks, and buyers who have worked with us write fewer offers and find homes in less time than the industry average. This is directly related to our approach. When a buyer is making an offer, we are on the phone multiple times with the selling agent, making our offer as personal as possible. Our clients don’t always have the highest bid, but our reputation in the industry often helps put our offers in the winning position. Our relationships to other real estate professionals also provide access to incredible off-market listings,which make up 15% of our transactions. When selling a home, we professionally stage and modernizeat a minimal cost, andmarket extensively, using voiceover/scripted videos to help the home come to life.

Buying or selling a home is deeply personal. For most people, a home is the biggest asset you will ever own. Home is where you live; it shapes your life, helps secure your future and becomes part of your history. We understand this intimately and your trust is not only valued, but also greatly appreciated. Whether buying or selling, our goal is to get you more!
