Cummings Home Team

Cummings Home Team

REALTORS®

The Cummings Home Team consists of Cameron Cummings, Cyndi Cummings, and David Cummings.

Many companies describe themselves as “being a family”, “having a family atmosphere”, or “treating each other as family members”. Well, the members of The Cummings Home Team at Realty Austin are, literally, a family. The actual Cummings family has been a family since February 8, 1986, at approximately two PM, Portland, Oregon time. The weather was perfect for a wedding.

Actually, if you want to be strictly accurate, only three of the four members of the Cummings family are associates of The Cummings Home Team at Realty Austin. (Daughter Natalie, the “black sheep”, has become an opera singer and voice instructor.)

The three family members who are on the team, however, have accumulated over thirty seven years of experience among them in a wide variety of capacities in service to real estate clients and their families.

So, allow me to introduce the members of The Cummings Home Team/Family; starting with the youngest member and working to the oldest.

Cameron Cummings

In June of 2001, Cameron’s family moved from Portland, Oregon, his place of birth, to Lakeway, Texas, a small, quiet, resort and retirement community on the outskirts of Austin. It was the summer before Cameron’s eighth-grade year. Cam attended and played football at Lake Travis High School, played guitar to impress girls and then, after high school, struck off to attend MI, the Musicians Institute in Los Angeles. Cameron has been an actual, official, licensed real estate agent for over a decade now. But his primary real estate education started when he was a small child, going with his parents and sister from open house to open house and helping them fix-up their latest investment properties. Yes, real estate is in his blood.

Ten years ago, when Cameron became an officially licensed agent and struck out on his own, he decided to cut his teeth in the West Campus and downtown rental markets working for a UT campus-area brokerage. He then moved on to serving residential buyers, sellers and investors; achieving “Top Producer” status, eventually, at a small luxury brokerage downtown.

Cameron definitely has his finger on the pulse of the downtown scene, having performed with bands at such iconic Austin music venues as Antone’s, The Continental Club and other clubs throughout central Austin, including on Rainey Street and elsewhere in the entertainment district. Cameron knows Austin. That shouldn’t be surprising because truth be told; Cameron has been exploring downtown Austin and its neighborhoods since high school.

Cameron’s unique insight into what makes Austin a Weird, but very special, the place gives him an edge in anticipating coming Austin trends and in marketing his Sellers’ homes. His wealth of experience, living in the milieu of Austin for over a decade, is invaluable in guiding home-buyers to help them find the right house in a place with just the right amount of weirdness.

Cyndi Cummings

After graduating from Beaverton High School (The Beavers) in Beaverton, Oregon, Cyndi Cummings put herself through Oregon State (also the Beavers), earning a degree in Business Administration. The two jobs she worked simultaneously throughout college paid for 100% of her college expenses, including room and board. She was Pledge Chair. I’m pretty sure Cyndi did not sleep from 1978 to 1982.

Cyndi’s prior experience working in the draperies department at Sears during summers in high school landed her a job after college managing a retail clothing store in a very scary part of downtown Los Angeles. But Sears saved her, calling her back to Portland in 1983 to sell something called “personal computers” from their newly started “Sears Business Systems Center” retail outlets. The computers had 8” floppy drives, 64k of memory, 4-inch screens, weighed forty pounds and cost 3,000 1983 dollars. She sold them like hotcakes.

While working for Sears, Cyndi, on a lark, decided to try out for a musical at Portland Civic Theater. There she became impressed with an engineer, fresh from Texas, who was performing with her in the chorus of the musical “Funny Girl”.

The weather was perfect for a wedding on February 8, 1986, at approximately two PM, Portland, Oregon time when Cyndi officially became a co-founder of the Cummings family.

After bearing her first child, Cyndi moved to a part-time office job at a position that was new to the industry; something called a “Computer Systems Administrator”.

When child two came around fifteen months after the first one, Cyndi quit her job and devoted herself primarily to family, with part-time stints along the way working for a couple of newly started companies called Apple and Microsoft. (Bill Gates is terrible at karaoke, by the way). On weekends, Cyndi, her young husband, and their two small kids toured open houses. At night they worked at fixing up their investment properties. Real estate was in her blood.

Cyndi also had a part-time business appearing on local Portland TV stations as “The Computer Mom”, advising parents and families and answering their questions about this new dominating presence in their lives; their personal computer.

Always deeply involved with her children, their activities and education, Cyndi managed and organized numerous fundraising auctions and other events in support of their schools. And, of course, she was an officer in the Junior League.

In June of 2001, her husband’s job transfer landed Cyndi in a very hot place called Lakeway, in Texas, a small, quiet, resort and retirement community on the outskirts of Austin. A year later, Cyndi found herself President of the Lake Travis Education Foundation. Their annual auction that year raised more money than had ever been raised in any previous auction.

2002 was also the year Cyndi decided to get into real estate in a serious way. The kids were a little older now and the time was right. In that, her first year, Cyndi won “Rookie of the Year” at her 200+person brokerage, and was presented with the “Eagle Award”; the highest honor that particular company bestows on its agents. Countless transactions later, Cyndi’s life in real estate is now in its’ sixteenth year. How time flies.

Always busy with charity groups and other civic activities, Cyndi has, over the years, accumulated numerous civic awards such as the “Unsung Hero” by the Lakeway Chamber of Commerce and currently is vice chair of Austin Up, Board member of Drive a Senior, founder of Austin Senior Resource Alliance and recently founder of the newly formed non-profit-LT Senior Services.

In 2013, Cyndi decided to concentrate on serving seniors citizens during times of transition. She founded a consortium of service providers called the Austin Senior Resource Alliance to provide a one-stop-shop for seniors and their families seeking services and advice from trusted specialists. These specialists include estate and probate attorneys, in-home doctors and caregivers, auction and estate-sale organizers, movers, handymen, and others. And, although she is a Lakeway resident, in 2015 was appointed Cyndi to serve as vice-chairman of “Austin UP”, the mayor’s initiative to improve the quality of life for all of Austin’s seniors.

Cyndi teaches more than thirty state-approved classes to other real estate agents in cities all over Texas and on cruise ships at sea. (Of course, she organizes the cruises) Cyndi is, in fact, a Realtor’s Realtor, an agent other agents go to when they have questions.

Recently, Cyndi has created a unique added service that she offers to her Sellers. It is a “concierge” moving experience called “Turnkey Transitions”. It provides her clients and their families with not only an MLS listing and top-tier marketing, but invaluable hands-on help with arduous, daunting tasks such as sorting, selling off, staging, moving out, moving in and, finally, setting up of her clients’ new homes.

This unique optional service is, by the way, also available to any client who doesn’t want to lift a finger when they move, regardless of their stage of life.

Cyndi is a licensed broker and she serves both buyers and sellers in all price ranges and in all stages of life.

David Cummings

In June of 1973, David’s family moved from Midland, Texas, his place of birth, to Wichita Falls, Texas. It was the summer before David’s eighth-grade year. David attended and played football for Wichita Falls Rider High School (GO Raiders), sang in the acapella choir and performed the lead role (even though he had never taken a theater class) in his high school’s senior play, all in an effort to impress girls.

David attended and played football for Wichita Falls Rider High School (GO Raiders), sang in the acapella choir and performed the lead role (even though he had never taken a theater class) in his high school’s senior play, all in an effort to impress girls.

After graduation, David struck off to Lubbock, national merit scholarship in-hand, to study Mechanical Engineering at Texas Tech. (GO Raiders) At Tech, David landed major roles in the University’s main-stage productions of “A Streetcar Named Desire”, “The Philadelphia Story”, and other big shows (even though he was not a theater major). During college summers David performed in musicals at Backdoor Theater in Wichita Falls, appearing in such roles as Captain Von Trapp in “The Sound of Music” and Prince Harry in “Once Upon A Mattress”.

After Six short years, David graduated with his Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering from Texas Tech. Upon graduation, having spent his first twenty-four years in the flat, bleak environs of Midland, Wichita Falls, and Lubbock, Texas, David threw a suitcase and a backpack into his car and drove to Portland Oregon to do some hiking and look for a job. Seventeen years later, he would return to Texas with a wife and two middle-school-aged kids.

In Portland, David worked first as a glorified draftsman and then as a facilities engineer for a company that made silicon wafers for the burgeoning personal computer industry. During this time he actually passed the test to become a registered Mechanical Engineer in Oregon. The test was hard for him.

In 1985, David joined the chorus of “Funny Girl” at Portland’s Civic Theater, primarily to impress girls. There he met an amazing woman with boundless energy.

The weather was perfect for a wedding on February 8, 1986, at approximately two PM, Portland, Oregon time, when David and Cyndi became a family.

Starting in 1987, at night and on weekends, David learned the basics of real estate alongside his new bride, who dragged him from open house to open house and helped him and their small children fix-up their investment properties. Real estate got into David’s blood.

David changed jobs and worked for a distributor of high tech industrial valves and fittings, calling on new, local companies, such as Intel Corporation.

In 1994 David went back to school at night and on weekends to earn an MBA from Portland State. In 1996 the team David led won third place in Motorola’s national product marketing competition for MBA Schools. David’s team chose fantasy sports team owners as the target market for their campaign…. in 1996. In 1997, David graduated in the top ten percent of his class with a shiny new MBA.

After graduation, David designed, patented and manufactured a fitting safety lockout device that is still used by semiconductor fabs worldwide. He then went on to sell big, expensive industrial equipment such as minienvironments, industrial robots, and more, to a wide range of industrial clients all over the United States.

In 2001, David’s company transferred him and his family to Texas. He and his wife, Cyndi, were given the option of living anywhere in the state they desired. They chose Lakeway, a small, quiet, resort and retirement community on the outskirts of Austin.

By 2005, having witnessed his wife’s meteoric rise in Real estate, David was ready to, finally, re-join Cyndi in their long-time obsession with real estate and become a home “Buyer’s Specialist”; meaning that he would not list and market homes for sale, but focus on the needs of home buyers. Thirteen years later, David is still a buyers-only agent. It is his competitive advantage. While other agents are busy marketing their Seller’s homes and themselves, David, with his buyer-centric focus, is out showing property and developing superior market knowledge in many areas all over Austin. Although he is based in Lakeway, David has had the rewarding experience of helping individuals and families from all over the United States and the world relocate to homes in neighborhoods throughout the greater Austin metropolitan area; from Spicewood to Round Rock, from far South Austin to Liberty Hill. David helps first-time home buyers with modest budgets make one of the most important purchasing decisions of their lives, and has helped CEOs and company founders in making complex purchases of multi-million dollar homes on Lake Travis, Lake Austin and elsewhere. The buying experience for David’s clients is efficient, professional, low-stress and even fun sometimes, as it should be.

David has had season tickets to Lake Travis High School football games since 2002. He has performed leading roles in numerous theatrical, musical and comedy productions at theaters in Lakeway and Austin. And, in 2010 and 2011, he had a weekly Monday night residency at “The Highball” on South Lamar singing Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin songs with the seventeen-piece Republic of Texas Big Band. For the past seven years, once a month, David and the band have performed at Lakeway’s popular “Big Band Bash”. In 2016 David sang shows in Austin and Lubbock with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra as its substitute vocalist on their Texas tour.

We have sold and purchased our personal home several times over the years. Cindy was extremely professional and helpful for my relative's home and her move to assisted living, especially since we live two hours away from Austin. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. She's great!
