Michael Cunningham - Real Estate Broker | Marketing Director
Michael Cunningham is a real estate broker, marketing guru, full time student, and father of two. A native of Tennessee, Michael was introduced to the behind the scenes aspects of radio and left school to pursue a career in the industry, eventually working his way to his dream job - a producer at a major market radio station.
Shortly thereafter, the economy began its downturn and Michael transitioned to television production in our nation's capital, serving as the Senior Audio Engineer for NASA Television's headquarters department in Washington, DC. There, Michael supported not only events in Washington, but also assisted the Public Affairs office during launches of the Space Shuttle program from 2007 until the final mission in 2011. After several years of difficult managers and no career advancement, Michael struck out on his own and became a real estate broker in one of the hottest real estate markets in the country where he helped dozens of clients buy or sell a home. He's continued that success in Chapel Hill, where he's not only helped more people realize their dreams, but also assisted other real estate agents grow their business while at the same time worked to grow his real estate firm, which has won several awards during his tenure as Marketing Director.
After the birth of his second daughter, he redoubled his efforts to return to school and complete what he started decades ago. A honors graduate of Central Carolina Community College, Michael currently attend The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, majoring in Contemporary European Studies.
A self-avowed sci-fi nerd, Michael is a doting father to Ella and Lilly as well as a devoted husband to Caitlin. A resident of Briar Chapel in Chapel Hill, Michael is an active member of the community when not helping his neighbors, you can find him reading to his daughters, or simply reading a history book to himself (that's if there isn't a Star Trek or Dr. Who marathon on).
