"My wife and I were looking for our dream home in SF for a while. It was hard to find the right home for the right price, especially in SF. We worked with several different agents, but didn't feel like we got the attention or responsiveness that we needed. Then we met Crystal. We could instantly see the difference between the care and attention that Crystal gave us and that of our previous agents. Even though she was a relatively new realtor, she showed extensive knowledge of San Francisco neighborhoods and properties. Her legal background was especially helpful while going through all the disclosure documents for properties (hint for new buyers: there are a LOT of documents). She didn't push us to make crazy offers on properties and always advised us to make an offer that we were comfortable with, rather than pushing us to over bid to get a property in a hot market. In the end, we were able to get our dream house in the inner Richmond based on her suggested price and we were the top offer by just $50,000! We just moved in to our house and LOVE it! We could never have done it without Crystal! We highly recommend her!
"Working with Crystal was an awesome experience. My wife and I had zero experience/knowledge when we started looking for a home.
With Crystal's help we were quickly able to target our search into a smaller area and decide what was important to us. She was with us every weekend we felt like house hunting and answered our emails and phone calls almost immediately!
We'd still be looking if it wasn't for Crystal!
"When we first engaged Crystal to help us buy a home, we had just come off of a series of disappointing bids and rejections the year prior, so we were bracing ourselves for a long renewed housing search. Imagine our surprise when, for our first attempted offer together, Crystal helped us craft us a winning package (in the crazy SF housing market, no less)!
Thanks to Crystal and her rare combination of charisma, proactivity, compassion, and killer instinct, we had an unbelievably smooth experience bidding on and purchasing our home. Crystal identified really creative ways to help us improve the attractiveness of our offer (despite some of our financial constraints), tirelessly researched and shared helpful information without our asking, and helped us track details and deadlines (a total blessing with our insane schedules). Her background as an attorney really stood out, given her uncanny detail-orientedness and unfailing responsiveness.
We also really appreciated her ability to keep us motivated in moving through the process while provide realistic, practical recommendations. I would recommend Crystal in a heartbeat for anyone that is looking to craft a competitive, successful offer for the Bay Area housing market.
"As we knew she would, Crystal struck the right balance between proactive and considerate - always keeping us informed and ahead of schedule, taking care of upgrades and staging start to finish, and making us feel like her top priority - all in the same month as her wedding! She brought in multiple serious offers and we handily closed above our ask. 100% delighted!" - Brian Wong
"Crystal was very accommodating and have always been available when we have questions.
She definitely has the knowledge and expertise in her field and I rate her with 5 stars.
Nice person , always smiling and dependable.
"Crystal was helpful and honest with us throughout the home buying process. She walked us through each step and made sure that we were making informed decisions. When we needed her to advocate for us, she did and we ended up getting the house that we both loved!
