what our clients are saying

David and his team are truly the best of the best. I hired them to sell a home which previously sat on the market. True professionals through and through, they took care of everything and got the house sold at an amazing price. Truly the best firm in Berkeley/Oakland. — Abe Gupta
Can’t say enough positive things about our selling experience with the entire team at Cush. From design, to marketing, communication and particularly execution. It seems rare that a transaction in this environment can go smoothly but Dave makes it happen. — Nicolas Tijan
Cush Realty caught our attention through their consistently impressive sales in our neighborhood, led by David Higgin's team. What stood out was their knack for transforming properties beyond the typical house flip, adding an aesthetic appeal that resonated with buyers and drove prices above market value. After considering several local realtors... — Chung Family
"Dave and his team at CUSH did an outstanding job for us. We interviewed several agents and his proposal was by far the most developed, with a draft plan for what they would do to make our home most attractive to prospective buyers. This included specific proposed changes and their costs, with several options to choose from. Once we got started the... — Mark Zitter
Thank you David for your knowledge, your real estate savvy, and for helping us navigate some thorny issues. We are so glad we entrusted you. We got a result that exceeded our expectations and we fully believe this was due to you and your team’s craft and expertise. — Joo Park

"David and his team have now worked with us for two home sales, and we are currently working with David to buy our next home. We were both selling and now buying in difficult market conditions, and his advice, knowledge of our neighborhood, and expertise continues to be exceptional. He continuously provides us with solid advice, even if it is not a... — Alia Dolan
"Dave and Erika - we so appreciate your guidance and partnership in helping sell our home. We really appreciated that we always got your opinion, but were also willing to collaborate on decisions. It really made what could have been a really stressful experience go so much smoother. Thank you again for everything!" — Yi Zhuang
We recently sold our home in Oakland, California after signing a contract with David Higgins of CUSH Real Estate. We bought a house out of state in the spring of 2022, which wasn’t going to be completed until 2023. We had not planned on selling our Oakland home until the late fall of 2022. Because of the uncertainty in the real estate market Davi... — Margaret Hungerford
David and his team helped us sell our house in the time frame we talked about and his team ended up exceeding our expectations in terms of how well they assisted us to ready the house and were able to market it. We ended up getting a great price. We deferred to his team in terms of how to improve parts of our house to make it more appealing, stagin... — Jeffrey Rothman
