Hello, everyone! Welcome back to CEO Secrets. I am thrilled to have our guest on the show and I am so honored to be interviewing him today. Please welcome, Rick Cunningham.
Rick Cunningham was a licensed Landscape Architect before he got into the real estate world. Although he was getting clients for his business, he felt that he was not on the right path. After he finished his MBA, he realized that his real passion was in real estate. That was when he started his career as a real estate agent. Today, he is the Owner and Investor of multiple Keller Williams Franchises throughout California and Hawaii.
