Bonita Hawkins

I was a first time home buyer and Crystal helped me every step of the way from start to close. she recommended a great inspect as well as an amazing closing attorney. She was extremely patient and made sure I did not settle for just anything. In this crazy market I was beginning to lose hope but Crystal never gave up. I am now in my dream home and I couldn't be happier.

Kennedy Mark

We went through a lot during this time and we would Love to thank her for her respect, professionalism, and having our back with all that took place. We are now in our home and we owe it all to her!

Vanessa Ragsdale

Crystal is the best realtor I've ever worked with. She is professional, funny, involved, and honest. Crystal made the home buying process stress free and pleasant. Contact Crystal if you are looking to purchase or sell a home. You won't be disappointed.

Claudia Saa

I really enjoyed working with Crystal. She helped my mom find her dream home and that made my mom recommend her to me as my realtor and I'm glad she did. She was very patient, courteous, kind, professional and understanding. She knew what I was looking for in a home and she made sure to find me EVERYTHING that I wanted. She made the process so smooth and easy. I closed on my dream home today and I am so excited. I highly recommend Crystal as a realtor because she is amazing and I really enjoyed working with her.

Eionshafae Evans

There are no words to describe how easy Crystal made this process for my family and I. She was always available for any questions we had well after business hours and was very well versed in the home buying process. Crystal has a person at her fingertips to assist with every need/want throughout the process as well. From a VA loan all the way to the closing attorneys. Thank you Crystal, you are AMAZING!

Jeffrey Vonlienen

Crystal was amazing to work with from beginning to end and made our dreams come true with the purchase of our first home. She made it as stress free as possible and educated us on each step of the process. She made sure that we were comfortable with everything and ensured that we got exactly what we wanted and needed in our new home. She quickly answered our questions (we had a ton) and was available to keep us calm and on track. She also provided very great resources for us before and after closing!! We highly recommend her and know who to call when the time comes for our next purchase.

Philshaunda & Diaab A.

Crystal... I don't have the words to describe what a wonderful realtor she is, for all kinds of people. I first met her, by sheer luck, when I was buying my first house. I was super emotional and every up and down seemed liked the end of the world! Due to an incredible bank error, my loan fell through temporarily and the seller pulled out, yet Crystal kept my chin up and we found a BETTER house and made a better deal - and it became the house I brought my daughter home from the hospital in. She even kicked in to help me with closing costs. When it came time to sell, there was no one else I would think of reaching out to. Crystal did the same hand holding but for different reasons - I was selling remotely from another state. She did EVERYTHING, and I mean EVERYTHING. I am super busy, and would not have been able to handle it without her. She literally went to the hardware store for me to look up the best deals on appliances. I can't say enough about her. I would work with her 1,000 more times on any priced home, buying and selling.

Staci G.
Seller & Buyer

Crystal definitely put in the work in helping us find our forever home in 5 days.She found a home in the area we liked and it has all the amenities we were looking for.I recommend that you Crystal a call if you are in the market for a home.

Sherman & Carolyn Bynum

Crystal is an awesome realtor. She's dedicated to ensuring you have the home of your dreams. She's definitely an advocate for ensuring things are done properly throughout the home buying process. She has patience and respects her clients. I would definitely refer her and will hire her again.

Tasha Warren

Crystal is fantastic, I could not recommend anyone else more highly in the Raleigh/Triangle Area. Selling my first home could not have been easier with Crystal's help and expertise. She was extremely knowledgeable and always willing to take the time to help us understand every step of the process, she helped us stage, photograph and market our home and ultimately get top dollar and a smooth closing. Her willingness to go above and beyond is why I will always work with her in the future and hope you do as well.

Claudia Saa

Well as a First time home buyer, I was already nervous about process. But this Awesome Realter name Crystal Lucas the buying process easily and stress free. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy their the home. You definitely want regret it trust me. Thanks again Crystal you are the best hands down!!

Brandon Ellis

Crystal is the absolute best. From the initial contact to every question, big or small, that a first time homebuyer would have, to the actual closing, she made me feel like I was her only concern. Her knowledge of the industry and trends was immense and very helpful. I look forward to working with Crystal in the future and have referred several people to her already. You will not be disappointed.

Kandice W

To say that Crystal is amazing is an understatement. She took us to every house we could ever possibly want to see. She fought hard for us in negotiations for the house we wanted. And she never quit on us when we had hoops to jump through for the underwriters. I am so glad we closed and I can't wait to sell my house with her!

Renee Farrow

My girlfriend bought and sold a home with Crystal and I had the pleasure of working with Crystal during my home buying process also. Closed today! From the moment we started looking, Crystal was honest and up front and never treated us like we were just another sale. Buying a home isn't an easy process and considering the amount of other clients she has, she was always prompt and thorough with all the questions we had during it, even if it was late in the evening. She is VERY knowledgeable in her field and it makes a world of difference having that. Buying is a huge decision and the small details matter. If you're buying a home, Crystal is who you need!

David Parrish

Crystal was great! She made my first time home buying process a breeze. I will definitely be referring her to others!

Raveen Reese

The process of selling my home went smoothly thanks to Crystal. She was very professional,and was available whenever I needed her. I am very pleased with her services. Wonderful experience!!

Jo Ann R

Crystal is hands down the best realtor anyone could ever ask for. My family was very blessed to have her assistance with selling our family home. She was very patient with us, and ensured things will work out. As of today, she was right! The house was sold, and we are very pleased. Thanks again Crystal!

Joy R

I am not a first time home buyer but that is the way I felt. Crystal shared and enlightened me on so many things. She explained everything and kept my husband and I updated. This was my best experience. Crystal worked so hard on my family's behalf.

Tisha Gore
Seller & Buyer

Crystal was everything I needed in a Realtor. As a first time home buyer, I had a lot of skepticism and doubt. Crystal was very knowledgeable and punctual. She responded immediately to every one of my concerns and made what seemed to be so difficult to understand, easy for me. There's a lot to buying a home but I was comfortable and confident throughout the entire buying process thanks to Crystal. She is definitely a professional in her field and I would refer her to anyone buying or selling a home. Thanks Crystal!

Jomared W

It was such a pleasure and great experience working with Crystal. She was very patient and supportive during the whole buying process. Being a first time home buyer I didn't know what to expect and learned quickly that it would take a lot of time and houses to look at before finding "the one". But through all of that Crystal was very accommodating and was willing to work with my schedule as we viewed homes and kept me up to date on houses that met my expectations. I'm very pleased and happy that I went through this experience with her and I couldn't have asked for a better realtor who was there for me throughout the whole process.

Vanessa Aranda

Crystal was great to work with and very patient with me. I was a first time home buyer with a lot of questions, and she was there to answer all of them. She is easy to get in touch with and puts her clients best interest first. She really works hard for her clients. I would recommend her to anyone buying to selling a home.

Carrie Glass

Crystal did an excellent job being supportive and giving background information about the area. She was very knowledgeable in the processes and effectively communicated to me everything that I did not previously understand. Crystal genuine approach made me feel comfortable because I knew I had a professional on my side. I had an amazing experience with Crystal!

Patrice J.

Thank You Crystal, I was very pleased working with you!

James G.

Crystal is truly committed to meeting the needs of her clients. She is a pleasure to work with. Crystal is awesome!!

Natalie M.

Crystal was great to work with; she was always professional & responsive. She welcomed our questions & remembered our preferences. We would definitely recommend her & would work with her again.

Andre' D.

Crystal has been a pleasure to work with. She has gone above and beyond the call of duty and I am very gratefully that we are working together. Crystal has been my eyes and ears and always return calls and follow-up emails. Her dedication and responsiveness to all my concerns/issues has been a tremendous relief, especially being an investor from out of state. Thanks so much.

Angela B.

Crystal was an amazing realtor and very patient with us. She was totally on our side and helped us get the right house for us at the right price, even after having to take a break and restarting the home buying process a year later. We have and will always highly recommend her to anyone who is purchasing a home.

Towanda W.

Because of Crystal's knowledge of the real estate market she helped us do the right things to sell our home for over asking.

Crystal listened to our needs for the purchase of our new home and helped us to make an informed decision about the home we purchased.

We have recommended Crystal to several of our friends. She is a true professional and a lovely individual.

David & Francene C.

Crystal is very professional and at the same time a friend, looking out for our best interest. She worked with us through our many changes in locations as well as style of homes. We searched for almost a year, had quite a few requirements for the home we wanted. She always found us something close to what we wanted as we changed in our needs. We would certainly recommend her to anyone. She also worked hard on our behalf after we found our home to insure we were well represented with the builder/seller during negotiations!

Neslon & Judy S.

Crystal has been a joy to work with from the very first conversation we had. She is very knowledgeable on many front. She was invaluable in helping us how best to update our home for the market and was very patient as we did the prep work. With her help and preparation for the market we were able to sell our home on the very first day of showing and received numerous offers in that short period of time. She is now helping us find our new dream home and is patient, helpful and very cognizant of our wants and likes and helps us to see both the pluses and minuses of the home we look at. She is the best

David & Francene C.

Crystal was right with us every step of the process. we could not have asked for a better partner in this transaction

David C.

Crystal treated us like family friends, as we changed our goals, she stayed ahead of us with what we were looking for in size of home as well as area until we found it. She made us feel very comfortable and encouraged that we would find what we wanted!

Nelson & Judy S.

I was completely satisfied with Crystal. She was very patient with me. She was very knowledgeable about her craft. Within a few weeks of working together Crystal was able to find me a house. During the negotiation process, the seller was giving us a hard time, but she fought tooth and nail for me. She is an excellent realtor. Two thumbs up!

Cximare M.

Excellent and very professional. I would recommend her to others based on knowledge of homes and the process and dedication.

Kevin C.

Crystal is amazing! She worked with us on the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new home! Always available around the clock and willing to do anything she could to help us - we will refer everyone we can to her!! Love her!!

Previous review from Jimmie & Brady S.

This is for the sale of our old home - Crystal helped us get thru this - Thank God! Right at the end - we had some kinks that she was able to get us thru so we could close on time! We had to do 2 closings in the same day - but that's ok - we are now in our brand new home that it seems like we waited so long for and she got us there!! If you are in the market to buy or sell a home - please contact Crystal - you won't regret it - she will definitely work for you and your best interest!!

Jimmie & Brady S.

Crystal was amazing. Even though we had multiple issues with our bank, Crystal's quick, professional responsiveness helped to get it all figured out with minimal stress.
She stuck with us through my husband's super pickyness, and we found an amazing home thanks to her!

Naomi S.

We just bought our first home and Crystal made the process painless. We looked for about a year and she wasn't pushy, she was always available to visit homes and answer questions. We are really impressed with the level of customer service Crystal provided.

Ricky G.

CRYSTAL IS AWESOME!!!! We've worked with her twice now, on both the buying and selling side, and couldn't have done it without her. She's very knowledgeable about all that goes into buying/selling and even helped us find the right contractor to do minor repairs. We moved before our house was sold and felt 100% comfortable leaving our home in Crystal's hands. Quite simply, she's the best in Raleigh!

Dan & Lauren A.

Very friendly and helpful..answered all my questions

Joy W.

Crystal is a real trooper. We had to buy a home in a week. Crystal has many clients all looking for homes yet she worked for us like we were the only ones.

We looked everywhere, countless hours and miles driven. She was patient with us as we evolved in our ideas of what we wanted. She had to have wondered if it would be possible to make us happy in this sellers market. She quickly responded to e-mails, texts and phone calls. She even took my call while she was cooking just because she knew we were running out of time. We ended up with a foreclosure which was a minefield to negotiate and close.

Would have been a complete nightmare were it not for Crystal's calming words of experience and excellent closing attorney she recommended. She knew what she was doing and she navigated us through the 'valley of the shadow' of hopeless, into our dream home in a dream neighborhood.

Surely Crystal could use a nap and a glass of bubbly but I know she's giving that kind of attention to another lucky client.

Alice B.

Ms. Lucas make the process of buying our new home very easy, she always was very helpful, answered our questions on a timely manner. I will recommend Ms. Lucas to family and friends as a real estate agent.

Jose' F.

She was great to work with. She is one of those people that when you meet them you can just tell that they are a good person. My spouse and I were first time home buyers and she made the entire process very simple to understand. The whole process was also completed very quickly. I highly recommend her

Savanna S.

I highly recommend Ms. Lucas as a real state agent, she made our home buying very easy, she was always available for any questions or concerns.

Vanessa G.

o We worked with Crystal Lucas in searching for and buying a home in the Clayton, NC area. Crystal supplied us with many options of houses for sale and she was always available to us for appointments, recommendations, advise and questions. She was able to really tune in to our priorities for what we wanted in a house and property. She is very efficient in the real estate process, guiding us through each phase from showings to the final closing. We really appreciate her professionalism and her genuine desire to help us. She was a pleasure to work with and we will certainly recommend her to anyone we know that is looking for real estate in Raleigh and the outlying areas.

Barbara K.

Crystal was a great help in assisting my wife and I with the purchase of our new home. She has great knowledge of the industry and is well versed in all real estate needs!

Walter M.

Crystal was very thoughtful and knowledgeable. She took her time showing me around the neighborhood and answered all my questions. Crystal also asked me all the right questions

Jeffrey B.

Crystal was more than helpful with my search for property. She was a always available when I had questions. In the future of I would use Crystal again.
