Sold a home in 2013.

My husband and I used Crystal in 2013 to purchase a home in DC and she exceeded every expectation we had for a realtor. This was not our first home purchase, but it was a completely different experience thanks to Crystal. Her knowledge of DC neighborhoods and market trends was impressive, and her ability to take that knowledge and match it with our needs and budget was incredibly valuable. She had an eagle eye when we toured homes, noticing things and pointing out things that we never would have been aware of otherwise.

We ran in to a few problems with our home after the purchase, and despite the fact the transaction was over and done Crystal assisted us every step of the way in dealing with the developer to address our concerns. It still amazes us the significant amount of time and effort she put in to ensure our concerns were addressed satisfactorily given the transaction was over...you would not see that with many agents.

We recommend Crystal with the absolute highest of confidence to all our friends and coworkers. You truly cannot find a better agent and we feel so lucky to have worked with her.

Sold a Condo home in 2008 in Shaw, Washington, DC.

I have worked with Crystal now to buy and sell 2 homes (in 2008/2009 and then again in 2012)- she was so incredible through each of the 4 processes. From helping us find the perfect home (twice!) for our needs in a crazy, fast-moving market; negotiating (many times) with the sellers and buyers to get us a deal that was within our comfort level; and providing comprehensive listings in multiple to neighborhoods that helped us know what was out there and what homes were worth. What amazes me most is her vast knowledge of all things from the capacity of the electrical boxes, the quality of the heating and air systems, accurate estimates of what home repairs would run us- this is all SO helpful when thinking about what a house is really worth and what the move in costs will be. To top it off, she has a great sense of design and can really help think through how to utilize spaces and what it would look like with our stuff in it- again, all very helpful when trying to think about buying. These skills also made selling our places so much smoother as well- she helped with staging, preparing, etc. and placing it within the range of what we could spend. Her intuitions are always dead on, as in both of our sales, she provided guidance in the prep (that maybe at first we did not want to hear- given the effort and costs) but each time, she moved the houses on and off the market in less than a week! She also has such a knack for understanding people and what they want- and in each purchase knew the house we landed up with would be the one that really grabbed us. That personal touch- her genuine caring for what people want and her ability to listen to people's story to make it happen is what makes her so phenomenal. Since the time I met her over 5 years ago, I could tell she was a "helper" and that her passion was finding people their dream homes.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $500K in Capitol Hill, Washington, DC.

Crystal is a very warm, friendly, and extremely competent real estate professional. She has the ability to quickly and very accurately assess current market conditions and give sound advice based on her extensive knowledge. Her grasp and attention to detail in all phases of the sales process helps to greatly reduce the stress that is an integral part of a home sale. She is very organized and thorough and she is very good at anticipating potential issues and making them non-issues. Crylstal lives in the neighborhood, so she is particularly knowledgable and keeps up with everything moving in the Captial Hill area. Crystal is a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to trust her honesty and judgement. I have no hesitation giving her my highest recommendation.  More Less
