"I interviewed three agents and selected Dede as the person most likely to sell our house in a timely manner and at a fair price.We lived out of state and relied heavily on her expertise to get the house ready to go on the market and keep us updated on the market situation in the neighborhood.She executed a marketing plan that included internet, print and open house visitations.This entire experience culminated in the identification of the prospective buyer in a time frame below the average DOM for similarly priced properties.I would highly recommend Dede as The agent to select for your real estate activity."

  -Eugene Backmon, Client

"This was a great experience from start to finish. I could not have asked for more in terms of professionalism and dedication to the task at hand. We sold on the first day of listing to the first people to view. All of my expectations were exceeded."

  -Ray Snell, Client

"We listed a rental house with DeDe in the NW Greensboro area. The first day of showings, there were multiple full offers. The process to close was relatively painless. DeDe used digital signing solutions to handle most of the paperwork, which was rather helpful. She was also prompt to communicate requests throughout the process, and even simple reminders like when to put utilities into my name and take out of my name. She's obviously a well seasoned agent and knows how to get the job done."

  -Phil Hanks, Client

"If you are thinking about selling your home in the Piedmont Triad area, we would highly recommend DeDe Cunningham. At our initial meeting with DeDe, she came to our house extremely prepared with comps, inventory levels, and other information that helped us to decide to list our home. After we chose DeDe as our agent, she was very knowledgeable about how to prepare our home for viewings; additionally, she had a strong network of qualified people to assist with home enhancements. Finally, during the contract negotiation and period before closure, DeDe was extremely thorough and professional. DeDe Cunningham is a prepared, knowledgeable, thorough, and professional agent, and we would definitely choose her again!"

  -David & Courtney Dixon, Client

"Rarely does someone make an impression to motivate me to actually sit down and write a letter about it. Well DeDe Cunningham has made such an impression. DeDe is remarkable in that she is able to cover all the bases, all the time and make it look easy. DeDe did an outstanding job handling the sale of our house. From preparing it to go on the market (while we were traveling across the country), to the closing, she always knew the answer, or the source for getting it done. I recommend her highly to anyone selling a home. Great job and thanks DeDe!"
