Sarasota's Custom Home Builder
ohn Cannon Homes was founded in 1987, but the vision for the company began many years before. John Cannon graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in building construction and first came to Sarasota, Florida in 1979 to work for a national builder. The job soon expanded to cover the builder's Sarasota, Bradenton, Naples, and West Palm Beach properties.
With creative networking and some creative financing, John and Phillipa Cannon designed, built and sold their first home at Misty Creek in 1990, and that was quickly followed by construction of three new homes. In their second year, they built eight new homes, and the business grew rapidly thereafter. Today, both John and Phillipa continue to play an active role in the daily operations of their business.
Building a reputation through hard work
Hard work and determination is what has enabled John Cannon to build over 1,000 luxury custom homes in more than 100 of southwest Florida's most prestigious communities. Since its inception in Sarasota, John has expanded his home-building craftsmanship to include Manatee, Charlotte, and Pasco and Hillsborough counties.
In Sarasota County, John Cannon Homes has established a reputation for excellence by building in the upscale communities of The Forest at Hi Hat Ranch, The Founders Club, Sarasota National, Silver Oak, Prestancia, and Turtle Rock in Palmer Ranch, The Oaks, Sarasota Ranch Club, The Hammocks, North Creek Estates, and Siesta Estates.
