Chris Canary




Chris Canary graduated from MTSU with concentrations in Finance, Real Estate and Construction Management. This education along with work experience in residential real estate and both commercial and residential construction led his path to a career in commercial real estate. Today, he is a successful broker with KW Commercial, the commercial arm of Keller Williams Realty.

Canary has been in the business for over a decade and currently serves as a Director for KW Commercial’s Murfreesboro office. He has worked on leases as small as $1,000 a month to purchases as large as $9 million. He holds the distinction of Certified Commercial Investment Member, a title held by only 6 percent of commercial real estate brokers.

Canary matches clients with the ideal property to fit their needs. His favorite aspect of the job is “[getting] to work with and meet a vast array of people, from small business owners to executives in large corporations.”

Canary’s line of work requires deep knowledge, perseverance and, above all, patience. He believes that timing is everything. “You have to be patient and detailed oriented,” he said. “Commercial real estate is problems and pieces. You just have to put [the pieces] together the right way and [not] panic when they don’t fit together at first.”

Canary lives in Murfreesboro with his English bulldog, Miley. A self-proclaimed “rock guy,” he is a drummer for the worship team at Real Life Community Church. He also holds a 4th degree black belt in karate and practices at Bill Taylor’s Bushido School of Karate.
