Agent Profile

Karen has lived in the Austin area since 1974 and has been a top producing real estate agent since 1990. She currently lives on Lake Austin but has resided in the Westlake and Central Austin areas where she raised her three children. Karen loves Austin and enjoys sharing its special qualities and characteristics with her clients. Water frontage and custom homes are some of her specialties as she understands the intricacies of these unique, and sometimes challenging, properties. However, she enjoys working all around Austin and is able to offer valuable experience, knowledge and the ability to adapt to the varying needs of her clients, wherever that takes her. In 2003 Sonya Cunningham came to work with Karen. Sonya is Karen's daughter, a native Austinite and graduate of the University of Texas. Real Estate is a seven-day-a-week job with the day starting early and often ending late into the evening. Having a partner allows both Karen and Sonya to offer their clients full service year round. Sonya has been a licensed Realtor since 2003 and obtained her Broker license in Dec. 2012. Prior to real estate Karen worked as a registered nurse where she learned that listening and putting other's needs first creates positive and lasting partnerships. Sonya shares these values which has helped both of them establish a loyal clientele and long-term relationships with all whom they come in contact with. From the first-time homebuyer to that unique, Austin property, Karen and Sonya's focus is on the person and their individual goal. Trustworthiness, dedication, tenacity and a willingness to help are a few of the attributes that have helped them be successful in the business. Karen has been a member of Austin's Elite 25 on multiple occasions and has received multiple top-producer awards. She holds her Broker's license, is a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist and is qualified to teach throughout the state.

Client Testimonials

Karen Cunningham and her daughter Sonya Cunningham listed our home with Sotheby's in January 2017. We have sold our residence, closing March 31 2017. We are impressed and delighted to be treated so respectively as sellers. Karen and team met our every need while also respecting our privacy, our investment and our position as a seller. Karen actually sold the property as a pocket sale. We highly recommend Karen and Sonya for their professional expertise in the Austin market and their ability to close a deal.

To say I like to move is an understatement! Karen and Sonya Cunningham have been amazing through all my real estate adventures and on many occasions, found solutions to sometimes very complicated situations. Through every transaction, Karen and Sonya have always showed just how professional and honest they truly are and strive to make each sale more smooth than the last. Most importantly, I am proud to call them my friends!
- Sarah S.
The process of buying and selling real estate is complex. I believe that being represented by the right Realtor is just as important as having the best Physician, Dentist or Attorney. Karen and Sonya Cunningham have represented me in the sale and purchase of six different properties over the past 12 years, one of which was accomplished while I was living in Singapore. From establishing the sales price to making a purchase offer and the negotiations, I place all of my faith, trust and confidence in Karen and Sonya. The greatest compliment and testimony is the fact that I made certain that Karen and Sonya represented my parents in the purchase of their retirement home when they retired from Michigan to Austin.
- Ben G.
Working with Sonya and Karen is a real pleasure. We never doubted that they held our best interests as the priority and they guided us into a house that we love and have made a home of. We could have missed this house without their insight and guidance. As a bonus, Sonya and Karen are a blast, so the looking is fun!
- Jo W. & Martha P.

She is the best and comes highly recommended in my book!
