Crystal Schip, J.D.

Crystal Schip started her career in real estate + law at a real estate law firm, supporting clients with real estate finance and development projects.  Inspired by the startup culture in Silicon Valley, she later found her way into tech law as a litigator representing Fortune 500 companies.  But she has always been passionate about real estate and holds a deep desire to help people.  So after years of practicing law at some 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.  She continues to strive to bring the level of service, knowledge, and expertise that is expected of attorneys to the real estate industry.  As part of Compass, the leading real estate brokerage in the San Francisco Bay Area, Crystal is immersed in the real estate market, helping people buy, sell, and invest in homes around the region.

Crystal originally moved to San Francisco from her hometown in Honolulu, Hawaii, nearly 20 years ago.  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 1907 home.  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 is always focused on protecting her clients’ best interests and their investments.  She devotes 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.  Clients consistently acknowledge her strong work ethic, patience, professionalism, and dedication.

Crystal is a member of the California State Bar, the National Association of Realtors, the California Association of Realtors, the San Francisco Association of Realtors, and the Hawaii Chamber of Commerce of Northern California (HCCNC).

When she’s not working, Crystal loves reading, exploring the outdoors with her husband and their pitbull/ridgeback mix, Rocker, and working on her latest home improvement or craft project.
