Dave Cunningham is the agent you want!!!! We are from Texas and our daughter is moving to the East Bay Area for school. We know nothing about the area!! We spoke with Dave and explained what we needed in the apartment and that we were coming in and only had two days to find the apartment and sign the contract!! Dave assured us that this could be accomplished, this conversation began to calm us down when he said, " I am very familiar with the area, I live here and I won't show you anywhere I wouldn't place my own daughter in!!" Dave asked question during the 11 complex tours we took, that we didn't know to ask!! We say hire Dave Cunningham....he is who you need!!!!

We searched the Bay Area for almost 2 years looking for a unique property that combined live / work with rental income. Then we began working with Dave Cunningham. Dave surveyed the East Bay market, and sent us weekly recommendations. Within months he lead us to the perfect property in Alameda. Dave was easy to communicate with & attentive through a long negotiation with a challenging seller. His positive attitude and energy was helpful in this process. We wholeheartedly recommend Dave Cunningham.

I worked with Dave on buying a house for my family in Alameda. He found us the most beautiful affordable Victorian 3 bedroom within weeks of starting to work with him. He gave highly insightful suggestions on what to offer and it was completely accurate for the market; and he ultimately secured the house for us. Dave is very professional and very thoughtful on his follow up and next steps with keeping buyers and sellers informed. Any stress there is with buying a house was quickly removed once working with Dave.

Dave was prompt to every meeting and sold my house in ground breaking time. took the stress off the sale and helped me meet my "time sensitive" time line. Honest, Prompt & hard working are just some words to describe him and his work ethic. thanks again dave!


Dave was tireless and set up private showings for us for all of the new listings as they were hitting the MLS and some even before they were listed. His knowledge of local markets and close relationship with other realtors is a great advantage for his clients. Dave's professionalism and demeanor worked well when it came time to negotiate for us. I strongly recommend Dave and will use him again for our next real estate transaction.
