"After looking for a new home in several cities across the Western US, we knew how important it was to find a realtor with local knowledge and a proven track record of real estate success in their home market. After meeting John Canova, my wife and I knew we found an agent we could trust, and who could help guide us in our search for our first home in Boulder. John listened to our preferences and needs and worked very hard to find properties that fit our tastes and budget. We could not be happier with the property we chose. John was a pleasure to work with, and the overall ease of the transaction was a relief. We look forward to working with John and Compass again in the future for our next purchase."

"We worked with John as a buy-side representative and he was fantastic. Trustworthy, kind, fun to work with and it always felt like he truly had our best interests at heart. Couldn't recommend him more sincerely." - Daniel Epstein

"It is rare to see or write a buyer's review for the seller's realtor but when it comes to John, this may become more commonplace. As experienced property owner/sellers, my husband and I waded into the Boulder housing market and decided to buy a place - quickly. While some realtors resent unrepresented buyers, John didn't bat an eye. Some realtors took more than a week to return my inquiry tour request calls/emails. He swiftly and professionally met us and did everything needed to secure a "quick" i.e. 2 week close including arranging for an out of town Title company signing while we were travelling. The seller was well represented and we were impressed. If and when I sell, John would be my first choice in Boulder."

"John was very helpful in streamlining the whole selling process for us. We worked with him remotely to sell our condo in Colorado, and he went above and beyond multiple times to meet people and services at our condo when we could not. He was very communicative the entire way through and was prompt with answering all of our questions! He is very knowledgeable with the Boulder, CO area and went so far as to coordinate open houses during the farmer's market across the street (so smart)! I would recommend John Canova with no hesitation."

About John
John has been fortunate to call Boulder home for over 25 years. He originally arrived in Colorado to study at CU-Boulder, and quickly fell in love with the town, people, and beautiful natural surroundings. John is a licensed residential broker that specializes in the Boulder market. He has an in-depth knowledge of the community and the various neighborhoods and has a passion for sharing this with his clients. Over the course of his time here, John has lived in just about every neighborhood in town: Newlands, Chautauqua, Table Mesa, The Hill, West Marine, up Boulder Canyon. He currently resides in Mapleton Hill with his family. John has successfully navigated the construction process with remodels and a ground up build and owns and operates rental/investment properties in town.

Prior to focusing on Real Estate, John has proven himself as a successful entrepreneur. Business accomplishments include: founding a Marketing Research business that has been retained by some of the world's most dynamic brands (adidas, Xfinity/Comcast, and Corona, to name a few), creating an International Ultra-Luxury Adventure Travel Business and building up and operating a Nutrition Counseling Business to 9 locations and over 50 employees. Eager to share his knowledge with future business leaders, he regularly returns to his alma mater CU as a guest lecturer at the Leeds School of Business. John enjoys applying and integrating skills from the business world into his passion for Real Estate, sharing with clients his enthusiasm, persistence, negotiating prowess and marketing expertise.

John understands firsthand the process of successfully navigating Real Estate transactions and analyzes each deal for his clients as if it was for his own family. His primary goal is to build trust, develop lasting client relationships, and create an enjoyable experience and successful outcome. When he is not helping clients find their dream home, John can usually be found taking advantage of the Boulder lifestyle; mountain biking, hiking, fly fishing or trying to keep up with his wife and two daughters on the ski hill.
