Meet Tivona Cunningham
Tivona Cunningham, “LadyTX”
Director of Strategic Planning

Tivona Cunningham is the daughter of the Lone Star State of Texas and moved to New York three years ago. Tivona, “Lady TXN,” is a longtime lover and traveler of New York City and was excited to move here in the fall of 2019. First settling in Carmel and eventually moving to the Nyack area.
As a natural people person, Business Development complements her personality. Tivona enjoys the challenge of being the Director of Strategic Planning for Richter + Ratner. Previous Director of Business Development and Marketing for PTS Contracting, a general construction firm specializing in healthcare and life science. She is responsible for identifying growth opportunities and expanding the company’s client base in Westchester, the Hudson Valley, and western Connecticut.
Tivona began her career in New York in 2019 as an NYC real estate agent, which quickly halted because of the Covid Pandemic. “Lady TXN” did not hesitate to look for other employment. In July 2020, Perfect Restoration and Cleaning Corp hired her as the Director of Business Development, Marketing, and Sales in Suffern, NY. Tivona started from scratch and built a strong network of friends and colleagues. Her best support came from the Rockland Business Women’s Network. She generated over $800K in her first year alone in new business.
Over the past 16 years as a Broker Associate in Texas (2006 Present) and Real Estate Agent in New York (2019-Present), Tivona has served many clients in the Texas Panhandle, the greater metropolitan Houston area, and New York. Her diverse background ranges from managing a bustling office/staff, running Tiger Productions, Inc., her special events and public relations business, and working in the legal and petroleum energy sectors. Furthermore, her versatility never compromises her core values of integrity, trustworthiness, and thoughtfulness.
Tivona has a lovely 21-year-old daughter who is graduating college in December and headed to Washington, D.C., to lobby for farmer’s rights in our country. My hobbies include playing golf and tennis, gardening, outdoors, and culinary adventures. “Lady TXN” enjoys getting her hands dirty and hosting elegant events.
