Crystal Roberts has been a practicing attorney in the Bay Area since 2012. Yet she has always been passionate about real estate and fascinated with homes around the world. So after 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. She partnered with a Hatch Realty Group–a boutique real estate brokerage–and has been immersed in real estate, helping both individuals, families, and investors buy and sell homes around the Bay Area.
Crystal originally moved to the Bay Area 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 110-year old Victorian. Her knowledge of the greater Bay Area allows her to serve clients throughout the region, with a particular expertise in the neighborhood she now calls home: the Richmond and Sunset districts of San Francisco.
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 goes above and beyond for them every step of the way. 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!
“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.
