Managing Director

About John

Considered a person of great integrity, highly respected and a consummate professional, John commenced his career in Real Estate in 1977 with a very simple philosophy—to establish business relationships built on trust. Opening Cunninghams Property in 1991 with his wife, Ann, John integrated this philosophy into the burgeoning 3 office, 70+ team member business it is today on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

Since then, John's innovative and personal approach coupled with his expertise and intimate knowledge of the market, have set Cunninghams as a benchmark business in the industry. His team has become one of the most highly awarded in Australia and the business is recognised throughout Australasia for its ‘Best Practice’ systems and operations.

John is a proud and active member of the Real Estate Institute of NSW, serving on the Board of Directors for the past twelve years and in November 2015 was elected as President for a two-year term. In 2018 John was recognised for his contribution to the Real Estate Industry and was awarded the prestigious Woodrow Weight award from the REINSW and then in 2019 he was awarded the Highest honour in Australia, the REIA Presidents award for services to the Real Estate Industry in Australia. His goals of turning the industry into a profession have been set in motion as he forges positive change for agents and consumers alike.
