Crystal Roberts started her career in real estate and law in 2007 at a real estate law firm. But she has always been passionate about real estate and holds a deep desire to help people. So after attending law school and a few years of practicing law at two of the largest law firms in the country, her entrepreneurial spirit led her to launch her own real estate business and dedicate more time to serving her real estate clients. As part of Compass, Crystal is immersed in the real estate market, helping individuals, families, and investors buy and sell homes around the Bay Area.
Crystal originally moved to the Bay Area over 15 years ago from her hometown in Honolulu, Hawaii. Over the years, she has grown increasingly familiar with many neighborhoods around the Bay, moving from San Francisco, to the South Bay, to the Peninsula, and back to San Francisco where she now lives in a 1910 Victorian. Her knowledge of the greater Bay Area allows her to serve clients throughout the region.
Crystal’s years of practicing law offer her clients a unique skill set in each negotiation and transaction she encounters. She takes the extra step to look out for her clients’ best interests, and she takes the time to educate her clients on the risks and benefits of the home buying and selling process to be sure they make informed decisions. She prides herself on her hard work ethic, her ability to remain calm in even the most stressful situations, and her dedication to providing the highest level of service to each of her clients.
When she’s not working, Crystal loves exploring the outdoors with her pitbull/ridgeback mix, Rocker, and spending time with loved ones. She would be honored to help you fulfill your real estate dreams!
“Crystal was incredibly helpful during my first home-buying experience. She proved to be trust-worthy, patient, and extremely knowledgeable throughout the process. Crystal ensured that I felt comfortable every step of the way. As a first time home-buyer, I was very nervous. Crystal took the time to thoroughly explain every component of the home-buying experience. No matter how many questions we had, Crystal would find the time to answer them and make sure we felt comfortable. In the very competitive San Francisco market, Crystal helped us succeed in winning our condo on our very first offer! Crystal is an amazing agent to work with and I would whole-heartedly recommend her!” — C.R.
“Selling a property is challenging. Getting it ready for the sale is stressful. Crystal Roberts’ help and advice made the process smooth and stress free. Once I was ready the process was fast and efficient from scheduling the home inspection, photographer and staging. The home was sold in 3 days due to efficient preparation and advertising. Crystal is also a lawyer, I find this a plus considering the many documents to review. Accessibility to Docusign made the process smooth. Overall Crystal was professional, helpful and always offer any help I could use. I highly recommend Crystal Roberts to help you with your real estate needs.” — P.O.
“Crystal went above and beyond for my husband and I. She was patient, listened to what we wanted, and then made it happen. We met her in May and we closed on our home in July! If it weren’t for Crystal we would not be moving into our dream home! We feel beyond lucky to have had her help with this process.” — A.T.
“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!” — K.C.
“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.” — J.T.
“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.” — J.O.
“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!” — A.S.
“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! We just moved in to our house and LOVE it! We could never have done it without Crystal! We highly recommend her!” — J.C.
