I was born in South Africa, grew up in Zimbabwe, have lived on three continents, and by recent count, visited equally as many States as I have countries (27 and counting). The world is full of beautiful people, extraordinary places, and although my quest to explore is unyielding, I feel blessed to have dug my roots in Austin. The secret is out, Austin is a special place, in its own weird kinda way.
Prior to Real Estate, I worked in the Aerospace industry for 15 years buying and selling commercial aircraft components and services for customers around the world. It was a blast dealing in the global travel industry, and the pivot to Real Estate is well-served by this experience and brings a lot to the award winning and acclaimed STRÜB Residential Group at Compass. My family and I moved to Austin from Seattle in 2015. We were looking for good weather, and BOY did we find it. After two years of searching for the right neighborhood, and another year searching for the right property, we settled into our beautiful home in the highly-sought EANES ISD.
I share this because finding a home and community that fits takes a lot of thought and care. A lot of research, investigation, exploration. My wife and I took the long road, but it doesn’t have to be that way for you. Let me be your guide as you search for the home of your dreams, or your home for right now. My love of people and places, my knowledge of Austin and all it has to offer, and the collective mindset of my wonderful colleagues at STRÜB, will be at your beck and call throughout your expectation-exceeding process.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
"We were moving to Austin from out of state and felt a bit lost trying to find a place from so far away. Working David Canning served as a huge sigh of relief for us and really allowed us to relax a bit. David was with us every step of the way and helped us arrange a full day of showings for the one weekend we could fly down. He was able to help us get accepted to our first choice! We had a wonderful experience with David and definitely know who to reach out to for all of our real estate needs! "
"A friend recommended Strüb Residential Group to help me find a new home in Austin. I was relocating for work and had an incredibly quick timeline. I was connected to David Canning and he was fantastic at sending choices with all of the amenities that I was looking for in a new townhome/condo. We saw almost 25 properties in one weekend and managed to have fun in the process. I had several fantastic places to choose from and I love my new home! David was incredibly helpful throughout the search and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a property in Austin."

"David Canning is the best!! Toured around some houses he found and recommended and ended up signing a lease to a place we never even looked at because we trusted David and his STRÜB team! Great real estate agent, professional and wonderful customer service. Amazing Human! Thanks, David."
"My girlfriend and I were in the process of moving from Kansas City, KS down to Austin, TX. David Canning with STRÜB reached out to us and explained his role and how he would like to help us find a property that fit our needs. David made the already somewhat intimidating process much more smooth and easy and having him guide us along the way was really a game changer. He ended up helping us get the exact property we wanted after touring several and made sure to help us with everything until the very end. I couldn't recommend David enough and we are so grateful that we were able to find and work with him and STRÜB! "
