Founder & CEO
Art, a 30-year Naples resident, began his real estate career in Youngstown, Ohio where he led a large real estate and development company building custom homes. In 1980, Art purchased a real estate boutique, which grew into the third largest in Naples. From that success, he founded Arthur Canada & Associates, Inc. that provided marketing expertise to lending institutions and development corporations to re-position and market distressed projects. In conjunction, Art created an international real estate division with an office in London. In 1990, Grand Bay Building & Dev. Corp. was formed to procure and develop land for residential and multi-family communities. From 1995 to present Grand Bay Building & Dev. Corp. has designed and built custom homes primarily in Naples and surrounding areas.
