Dave Cummings founded Cummings & Co. Realtors and currently serves as broker for the company. He singlehandedly founded the company in 2006 and has held every position since its inception, including broker, accountant, agent, contract review, and cleaning crew. As broker and under his leadership, Dave leads Cummings & Co. Realtors to continuous growth and real estate market share throughout the Maryland region.
From an early age, Dave’s strong sense of entrepreneurism led him to early success with his one-man neighborhood lawn cutting and snow removal business. He even owned his own snowball stand at the age of 8.
In the mid-2000s, Dave saw a need in the Maryland residential brokerage market for a strong, locally owned company with a fee structure that made sense for today’s technology-based world. He strives to create an encouraging work environment that gives his associates the tools and opportunities for greater professional and financial success; such as utilizing technology to decrease an agent’s costs, providing an inviting, modern office space in multiple locations and offers the benefits of a large corporate company with the small team feel.
Known as an agent’s broker, Dave does not compete with his agents, but focuses on ways to better assist and grow each sales associate’s business. Cummings & Co. Realtors is well-respected in the industry and was named Baltimore Sun’s #1 midsize Top Workplace in 2016 and #2 in 2017. The Baltimore Sun also awarded Dave with the Leadership Honor in 2016.
Initially based on Canton Square in downtown Baltimore, Cummings & Co. Realtors has grown exponentially with nine top-notch locations and over 350 Sales Associates on his team. Office locations include Canton, Lutherville, Ruxton, Perry Hall, Federal Hill, Bel Air, Roland Park, Timonium and New Freedom, PA.
A native of Towson, Dave graduated from Loyola Blakefield High School and Towson University. When not working Dave enjoys time with his daughter Lucia and son Blake. He is passionate about aviation, and as a private pilot, he owns a 1955 Cessna and holds a seaplane rating.
