Crystal knows what truly drives people to form relationships and build trust—and it is not mastering the marketing flavor of the week. It is how well you connect with the heart-beating people you’re trying to help, communicate your understanding, and deliver results back to them. This is exactly what she is doing here in North Carolina with the help of Cornerstone Home Lending, Inc.
Crystal holds degrees in Animal Science, Biology, and Linguistics. After extensive traveling in the Army, her military career brought her back to North Carolina where she worked as a cryptologic linguist and signals intelligence specialist at Fort Bragg. Upon retirement from service she returned to the home of her first business, Vertical Farms in Saratoga Springs, New York. While working as a veterinary technician in New York, she was a consultant for NYRA and Cornell University; specializing in equine emergency triage and sports medicine. It was this experience that led her to return to North Carolina to take a position running the NC State University Equine and Farm Animal emergency room at night and reveling in the warmer climate during the day.
Crystal was encouraged to join the mortgage industry by a fellow CHL team member. She now enjoys educating fellow veterans on the home loan opportunities available to them, and helping them and other first-time buyers achieve and succeed in homeownership.
A lifetime of service defines her both personally and professionally, and she enjoys getting to know the city through its wide array of charitable organizations. Her favorites include the Raleigh Rugby Football Club, SAFE Haven Cat Shelter & Clinic, and Riverside Ranch.
