About Shane Canny

Shane Canny is one of Virginia’s premier real estate agents, and he’s proud to bring his value-driven mind-set to every job. Whether helping someone buy a new home or list one for sale, Shane always brings unerring integrity and a personable touch. Working in the Virginia real estate market since 2004, his combined sales totaled over $25 million in 2018 and 2019.

No matter what stage you’re at in the real estate journey, Shane is equally equipped to help first-timers and veterans. On either side of the real estate transaction, anyone who works with him immediately appreciates his experience, knowledge, flexibility, and professionalism. Shane works tirelessly to exceed expectations, providing a no-pressure environment and guiding every client to an informed decision through this complicated, important process. Because he takes the time to understand people’s individualized needs, he’s proud to consistently work with repeat clients and enthusiastic referrals.

When working with buyers, Shane is happy to answer any and all real estate–related questions with his extensive local knowledge of neighborhoods, schools, local government services, sports facilities, country clubs, community organizations, restaurants, shopping opportunities, and more. Working with every client from open house to closing (and beyond), Shane is there every step of the way, ensuring this daunting, intimidating process is as clear, seamless, and successful as possible. Even in multiple-offer situations, Shane’s experience consistently helps potential buyers place winning bids on their dream homes, all while staying within their means. He goes above and beyond so every buyer can focus on what’s important: comfortably transitioning into a new home.

As with home buyers, every seller gets a personalized experience as well. Rather than a boilerplate approach, Shane develops a unique plan for every home that maximizes that property’s value. Depending on what each client needs, Shane can offer anything from a fully hands-on approach to basic advice. Using this method, 80 percent of Shane’s 2018 listings were under contract the first weekend on the market!

Sellers will especially benefit from Shane’s team of specialists, who use the most innovative technology and methods to aggressively market every home, which ensures maximum exposure. Rather than putting the onus on the home seller, Shane uses his industry experience and knowledge to prepare every house for sale. He oversees and manages this entire process, using his trusted contractors for value-add projects with historic return on investment, such as painting, decluttering, window cleaning, carpet cleaning, hardwood refinishing, staging, landscaping, and more. Shane appreciates the value of a client’s time, and especially during this stressful period, he assumes the burden of getting a home ready for the market—so the client doesn’t have to.

Licensed in Virginia and a member of the Northern Virginia Association of Realtors (NVAR) since 2004, Shane understands the landscape of the state’s real estate market and serves many areas within Virginia, including Arlington and Fairfax Counties, as well as the cities of Alexandria, Burke, Falls Church, Fort Belvoir, Lorton, Springfield, Annandale, and more.

For his success in the field, Shane has earned numerous awards, accolades, and recognitions. In 2018 alone, he was honored as an NVAR Multi-Million Dollar Producer and was named a Top 10 Producer in his high-performing office, which services the desirable Arlington area.

Born and raised on the west coast of Ireland, where he originally pursued civil engineering, Shane moved to the United States in 1998. He’s been a resident of Arlington, Virginia, for twenty years now, and he currently resides in Barcroft with his wife and three kids. When he’s not helping others buy and sell their homes, he’s actively involved in his community, including coaching his kids’ baseball and soccer teams, attending their Cub Scout meetings, and volunteering at their school.
