"Working with John Cannon and his team was a pleasure ... it was seamless and most impressive."

Since its founding, John and Phillipa have stayed true to their original vision, continuing to oversee every aspect of their company's operation. John attends client meetings, reviews wish lists, redlines house plans, and visits job sites while homes are under construction. Every Cannon home bears his personal imprint, a signature that is unmistakable.

Beyond the company, John is committed to the community where he builds and lives, as evidenced by his recent appointment to the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee Business Advisory Board for the school's Business College.

The corporate headquarters, located in Sarasota, Florida is home to the company's Design Center where clients can select all the finishes for their home.
