Crystal Brinkley found a passion for Real Estate when buying and selling a home of her own. She learned the value of building wealth within a short period of time from the investment side of buying and selling her first home. Crystal is very passionate and relates to her client needs from both buyer and seller standpoint. She also worked in the Mortgage Industry for over 5 years where she held positions in Short Sales, Bankruptcy, REO and Modification Underwriting. At that point, she decided her focus would be geared towards customer satisfaction and real estate knowledge to avoid foreclosures for potential clients. With having the desire to help others through the process of a major milestone, she is centered in problem-solving and driven for success. Reared in Raleigh, Crystal is very familiar with the Triangle Area and surrounding counties as location is a very important factor in Real Estate. Single mother of one, Crystal finds enjoyment in spending time with family, cooking, and reading in her spare time.
