Meet Cyndi Cummings

Cyndi Cummings is a REALTOR®, Broker Associate, and President of The Cummings Home Team and Turnkey Transitions®. She is considered the leading authority on issues related to downsizing, late-life moves, and (55+) senior living solutions.

In 2013, Cyndi decided to concentrate on serving older adults during times of transition. She founded a consortium of service providers called the Austin Senior Resource Alliance to provide a one stop shop for older adults and their families seeking services and advice from trusted specialists. These specialists include estate and probate attorneys, in-home doctors and caregivers, auction and estate sale organizers, movers, handymen, and others. She has also established relationships with area senior living communities to assist their clients with move management services.

Cyndi credits her community  involvement as a main impetus toward helping clients. Always busy with charity groups and other civic activities, she has served as Board President of AustinUP, Executive Board Member for Chariot (formally Drive a Senior Central Texas), and Founder and President of the non-profit LT Senior Services. In 2022, Cyndi was honored with the national Service to Seniors Award from the Society of Certified Senior Advisors. Additionally, she was appointed to the Austin Economic Development Corporation Board, a Public Real Estate Developer working for purpose instead of profits. AEDC can speed the pace of the public response to decreasing affordability and equity by moving at the pace of the market to blend the best of public and private deal making. 


To best provide hand-crafted service, Cyndi has invested a tremendous amount of time and energy in ensuring that she is educated and positioned to help older adults and their caregiver families. She has undergone a rigorous course of training and continuing education to achieve the exclusive designation of Certified Senior Housing Professional (CSHP) from The Seniors Real Estate Institute, as well as the designations of  Certified Senior Advisor and Certified Senior Downsizing Coach. In fact, with demonstrated success in working with senior clients, Cyndi has served as a Seniors Real Estate Institute master trainer, conducting classes for other real estate agents interested in becoming CSHPs.  She is a regular speaker for various events and organizations on topics of interest to seniors and their families.

What our clients are saying...

We met Cyndi at a seminar she was conducting on downsizing. It was clear to us from the start that Cyndi was extremely knowledgeable about the Austin real estate market. Cyndi made sure that our house showed beautifully. She was right by our side with referrals for any repairs that were needed. Cyndi helped us to price our house right on the money, so we ended up getting top dollar. She was so good at walking us through all of the paperwork, and made sure that the whole process of selling a house was very easy for us.

Seniors today have unique concerns that are best addressed by professionals with experience handling their specific needs. At Turnkey Transitions, we're devoted to making seniors' lives easier, happier, and healthier by partnering with the best organizations in the industry. That's why we're a proud member of the National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM), a third-party certification responsible for screening companies to ensure their integrity, commitment, and experience with senior needs are top-notch. NASMM members are not only required to obtain insurance, training, and access to resources other companies often don't have, they're held to a very strict code of ethics.


Among the most respected real estate professionals in their individual markets, Certified Senior Housing Professionals must complete extensive prerequisite coursework and an in-depth review to achieve their CSHP designation from the Seniors Real Estate Institute (SREI). As such, Turnkey Transitions is far more equipped than a typical real estate team and is committed to serving you as a professional partner throughout the entire consultative process surrounding a late-in-life move. Not only do we care about sharing our knowledge and expertise with our personal clients, we're committed to supporting realtors and seniors across the country by teaching and coaching other SREI students nationwide.

Always interested in the latest technology, Cyndi prides herself on being on the cutting-edge of new real estate technology. This love of technology led her to pursue the National Association of Realtor's "e-Pro" certification and serve on the technology committee for Keller Williams-Lakeway.
