2015 Sarasota Herald Tribune's - Reader's Choice Award

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

John Cannon Homes, “Best Builder” in Sarasota-Manatee County “Reader’s Choice” award for 23rd time … in a row.

This luxury custom home builder has stayed on top for over two decades. Here’s why:

SARASOTA, FL (March 31, 2015) – When John Cannon first started building luxury homes in the Sarasota-Bradenton area, gasoline was 89 cents a gallon, disposable contact lenses had just come onto the market, and the “Simpsons” made their television debut.

A lot has changed since 1987. But one constant is John Cannon Homes as a finalist in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune’s Reader’s Choice poll for “Best Builder.” And again in 2015, the luxury custom home builder received the top honor.

“To say we are honored is an understatement,” John Cannon, president, said.  

As a child living in a Michigan small town, he dreamed of becoming a builder: “I was the kid who built tree forts,” he says. His passion took him to Michigan State University, majoring in building construction; upon relocating to Sarasota, in 1979, he was hired by a national home builder and began honing his craft.
