With Crystal in your corner, YOLO (You Only List Once). Your choice in an agent, therefore, should be ‘Crystal clear’!
Crystal believes every profession has an element of sales involved, whether you’re selling yourself, a product, or property; and that customer service is a universal art. She has proven her success in both of these areas all through her career, particularly in real estate where she’s excelled as a market expert and true client advocate.
Representing buyers and sellers from Manhattan to Montauk, Crystal has especially deep knowledge of the Town of Smithtown, where she’s resided for the last decade. A Licensed Real Estate Salesperson with Douglas Elliman in the local market, she previously worked the mortgage side of the business, plus she is a landlord, affording her valuable insights on the full scope of real estate, to guide clients through the entire process.
In the brokerage world, Crystal has continued to distinguish herself, earning a Seniors Real Estate Specialist® (SRES®) designation to assist clients 50+ through major financial and lifestyle transitions. She is also a Pricing Strategy Advisor with enhanced skills in pricing properties, creating comparative market analyses, working with appraisers, and easing the anxieties and misperceptions clients often have about home values. Completing her TEFL/TESOL Certification (teaching English as a second language) affords her an extra advantage with an international clientele.
“I love to demystify the real estate experience for my clients, communicating openly and honestly, and educating them thoroughly so they can make the right decisions for whatever phase of life they’re in. I’m there every step of the way to work in their best interest and negotiate on their behalf, to reach the outcome they desire.”
Born in New Hyde Park, Crystal graduated Cum Laude from Hofstra University with a BA in Broadcast Journalism. Her prior career was in the fast-paced media and entertainment industry, which armed her with unique marketing, presentation, and negotiation savvy.
Crystal has always loved giving back to her community as a volunteer for charitable organizations. Each year, she leads the Elliman Smithtown office’s annual holiday fundraiser to benefit the American Cancer Society. Attending concerts and Broadway shows is among her favorite pastimes, though her number one passion is traveling. When her schedule allows, Crystal enjoys background acting for a number of TV shows.
