"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
Dave kept pace with us in a last minute home purchase that closed in 12 days! His great recommendation on lenders (Guaranteed Rate) was clutch in making it all happen. The process was super smooth and Dave is a great person to engage with. — Bekah
We hired David and his team to do a significant renovation to our home prior to selling and I couldn't be happier with how things turned out. David's expertise in the market and projection of our return on investment was spot on and ended up netting us a huge gain with very little stress. Not only that but I was shocked with how quickly and efficie... — Adam Stone

If you ever in need of a realtor, I highly recommend Cush Real Estate By Design. David, Erika, and their team are the best, I loved working with them! They did an excellent job for my house from renovation to staging in a short period of time and the outcome was more desirable than I expected. Best of all, I received offers within a week and it was... — Kathleen Kim
We chose the right team! Besides great service from start to finish, the marketing of our home was truly outstanding. We had a tight timeline to get our house ready for sale and Cush worked long hours to meet all the deadlines. I would happily recommend David Higgins and Cush Real Estate, whether you are selling or buying. — Catherine Hurley
David and his team did a fantastic job of prepping and staging our home — including numerous home and landscape improvements — then beautifully captured it photographically and via video. It perfectly showcased our home, generated traffic to the open houses, and importantly, produced a buyer. — Patrick Hurley
