WHAT CLIENTS SAY...

"Crystal was the best! I am a former Title Insurance Agent so I have worked with hundreds of Realtors. I wish they had all been like Crystal. Crystal knows the market, she is totally professional at all times but she is also warm and friendly. She is a very good communicator. I never felt out of the loop and she was always prompt to answer any text, email or call. I can't say enough about what a great job Crystal did for me. Five stars for Crystal!" | Linda W.

"Crystal is one of the most professional and responsive realtors I've ever worked with. Crystal was able to advise on localities, understood the current market, and was invaluable during the bidding process. In fact, in the end Crystal's closing costs estimates were much better than the bank provided! In short, she is an amazing realtor that I would gladly do business with again." | Mark A.

"I can not begin to describe my experience with Crystal. She is the most amazing agent I have ever met. If anyone is reading my review and wants to experience the lifestyle of the Island or the beautiful surroundings, please reach out to her. She is not only a resident and the best agent I have ever dealt with, but she is kind, responsive, extremely reliable and an expert on St Pete Beach and Tierra Verde. Her stories about the island make you want to be part of the community right away. She did for me more than beyond her duty. I purchased a residential lot and she even presented the construction plans for me at the HOA. She introduced me to the locals, neighbors, invited me to events and made me feel part of the community from the first time we spoke. She truly cares. I am building my dream home in the most beautiful place I ever have seen. The journey has begun and Crystal is the gatekeeper for the beginning of the new happy and exciting chapter to celebrate."

  -Jose M. - Tierra Verde, Client

"Crystal was extremely helpful in the recent purchase of a condo in the St Pete area. Her extensive knowledge of South Pinellas County and years of real estate experience were tools that guided me to a fabulous location that I love! She proved to be extremely patient through the endless showings until I found the one that took my breathe away. She then guided me through the closing and ensured a new beginning for me. I would highly recommend her for your future real estate ventures."

  -Debbie G. - St. Petersburg, Client

"Crystal was an excellent Realtor that worked closely with us through out the sales process. She went over and above assisting with preparing our home for sale. I would highly recommend her to anybody in need of a realtor. "

  -Kevin W. - Tierra Verde, FL, Client

"Crystal is amazing! Highly recommend her. Crystal helped us search for 5 months. She put a lot of time into helping us find the "one". She was always fast to respond to any questions we might have. She is very knowledgable. She understands the pros and cons of each house and gives amazing suggestions on how to update. She could be an interior designer too. I found this very helpful while on our search. She was always patient with us, wanting us to be happy with our choice. She takes the overwhelming process and it simplifies it for you. In the end, we decided to wait. When we do look again, we will go with Crystal. Thank you for all you did! "

  -Erin & Mike S. - Tierra Verde, FL, Client

"Crystal has lived in the area for some time. She knew our property and was responsible for getting it sold. She has the integrity one finds in few people. We would totally recommend Crystal for selling or buying in St. Pete Beach and Tierra Verde. She is great at what she does! "

  -Christine & Frank B. - Tierra Verde, FL, Client

"Crystal recently helped me buy my second house. This is also my second time working with her. To say she has been amazing is an understatement. There were countless problems during this recent closing, and through it all Crystal has been more than patient with my countless questions, texts and calls. She is always responsive and made me feel as if I was her only client at the time. More than once she steered me away from choices that would not benefit me even when they would have benefited her. If you are looking for someone who has an extreme knowledge of the area, plans everything out, is communicative and patient, and will go above and beyond, then Crystal is your girl."

  -Corey B. - Pinellas Point, Client

"I highly recommend Crystal Bannar and here's why: My husband and I had the privilege of working with Crystal Bannar to purchase our condo in St. Petersburg, FL. Crystal was extremely knowledgeable about the area (best fishing spots, great restaurants, school districts, etc.) and put a lot of time and energy into researching each place she showed us. She was with us every step of the way (which included a complex negotiation) and was the first person we would call for any question we had."

  -Mary Parkhill - St. Petersburg, Client

"Crystal was a pleasure to work with. She was very knowledgeable and always timely. We gave Crystal the criteria for the house we wanted to buy and she searched the market and found exactly what we were looking for. I would highly recommend her and will definitely use her again when looking for our next home."

  -Quint and Christina - Tierra Verde, Client

"Throughout the years Crystal has done an excellent job of providing us with outstanding knowledge of the local real estate market. Additionally, Crystal has several valuable connections with banking industry professionals. Her responses to our questions have always been both timely and accurate. Thank you for your ongoing support and expert knowledge."

  -Chris G., Client

"We met Crystal Bannar during our four day stay over the 4th of July as we were “walk-ins” at the Coldwell Bank office in St. Pete Beach. Little did we realize at the time, that was our lucky day! We could not have been happier when we left Treasure Island knowing the sale of the condo was in Crystal Bannar’s hands! …Crystal Bannar was a blessing for us and words cannot express our gratitude for her representing us from day one until we closed this week…. Her business card reads: Confident. Experienced. Trusted. and to that we add professional, thorough, knowledgeable and kind… We consider Crystal a friend, and a dear one who really rallied to any situation these past months in guiding us through an extremely exhausting process."

  -Glenn & Paula G., Client

"Crystal is one of the most professional and responsive realtors I've ever worked with. Crystal was able to advise on localities, understood the current market, and was invaluable during the bidding process. In fact, in the end Crystal's closing costs estimates were much better than the bank provided! In short, she is an amazing realtor that I would gladly do business with again."

  -Mark Allbritten, Client

"Crystal Bannar is a top-notch real estate professional. My husband and I have used many agents in the past to buy and sell homes, and Crystal is the most responsive. Her easy manner, knowledge of the market and attention to detail are a few of the things that make her an excellent choice for selling and/or buying."

  -Janet Ross B., Client

"My husband and I have used Crystal as our Florida realtor since 1993. She is conscientious, thorough, and highly knowledgeable about local real estate markets. Crystal has a knack of understanding what you want and then quickly produces results. She makes sure all bases are covered at closing. We have been very pleased with every transaction and give her the highest recommendation."

  -Betty & Carl A., Client

"Crystal is so thorough and detailed, she sold the first house we owned to the 1st couple who looked at it. She has also sold condos that our children had on the market in a short period of time. Crystal follows through with commitments and is very professional in handling the sale of your home and helping you relocate to another one. Our family gives her the highest rating of any real estate professional we have ever had."

  -Jerry & Barbara H., Client

"We have worked with Crystal both buying and selling our home, and she is amazing--Extremely personable, adapted very readily to our needs, the consummate professional."

  -Jennifer and Chris M., Client

"Crystal helped us with rentals, sold our house in 2 1/2 days, got us our dream house and looks after the house when we are out of town. She does everything for us and we love her. She is the best ever. We would certainly recommend her if you are buying or selling property."

  -Roland & Kerstin W., Client

"My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Crystal several months back as she helped us in our search for a home to call our own. Crystal worked diligently to find us every detail on our wish/must-have list. Her knowledge of the area and attention to every detail is second to none. We still to this day have an amazing relationship with Crystal and I can tell you that on our next home hunt, we will definitely be using Crystal again. I highly recommend her services and expertise if you plan on purchasing an new home for your family. Thank you again, Crystal, you are an incredible realtor!"

  -Anthony & Shanda Trofe, Client

"Crystal was the best! I am a former Title Insurance Agent so I have worked with hundreds of Realtors. I wish they had all been like Crystal. Crystal knows the market, she is totally professional at all times but she is also warm and friendly. She is a very good communicator. I never felt out of the loop and she was always prompt to answer any text, email or call. I can't say enough about what a great job Crystal did for me. Five stars for Crystal!"

  -Linda Ward, Client

"She is without a doubt the most knowledgeable, concerned, hard-working and service oriented professional I have encountered in the real estate industry. She patiently sent me over 70 links within my parameters to view and then showed me 10 properties. On another trip she showed my wife and I another 7 properties. We then submitted multiple offers and she helped me through the negotiations with a very difficult bank seller and dealing with a challenging financing environment. She helped me find many contractors such as a home inspector, landscaper, pool maintenance company and pest control company to name a few. Because I live out of state, this was a tremendous time savings! You don’t hear much from most realtors after the sale unless they are looking for referrals but Crystal has been there to assist with a host of issues, which I have had to address as an out-of-state homeowner. I would recommend Crystal without reservation for any real estate needs in the Tampa/St. Pete area."

  -Ramsey Taweel, Client

"We were referred to Crystal by a friend and found her to be very informative, professional and really catered to our needs. We were most impressed!"

  -Danny and Lori A., Client

"Thoroughness, knowledge, good judgment. You always followed up on things including those the other parties were responsible for."

  -Tory and Karen, Client

"You made sure even the smallest of details were taken care of, even after the sale."

  -Glenn and Tracy G., Client

"Crystal has handled three real estate transactions for me. Based on our previous experiences, I had come to expect a high level of knowledge, professionalism and efficiency from her. I was never disappointed. I will continue to refer people to Crystal for their real estate needs."

  -Mark Hammonds, CFP®, Client

"Crystal... you are, by far, the best realtor I've ever worked with!"

  -Mike Mauro, Tierra Verde Island Aire, LLC, Colleague

"Crystal is a great Realtor. She goes above and beyond her job scope, is always happy and on time! I like working alongside Crystal."

  -Wayne Rogers, WDO Inspector, Insectech Termite Sol, Colleague

"Crystal is a great agent and represents the best in real estate agents. She is professional and thorough with all of the transactions we have done together. I would highly recommend Crystal."

  -Mary Anne Ball - Gold Service Title Agency, Colleague

"Crystal has been our agent of choice for several years. In 2013 we finally decided to sell our home in St Petersburg and used Crystal's expertise to help us decide on the extent we needed to upgrade our home before putting it on the market. She not only provided an excellent market evaluation but, through her thorough preparation, made it obvious that she was the best person to represent us when we finally decided to sell.  We actually listed our property in 2014 at which time Crystal provided an updated market assessment along with a complete listing package. She was creative in developing the listing although the home sold so fast that the full marketing effort was not exercised. As the negotiations and deal finalization went forward Crystal consistently demonstrated that she had our best financial, legal and relocation concerns fully considered.  I would strongly recommend (and I have already) Crystal for real estate transactions."

  -Ed Smith, Client

"Crystal handled the sale of my house. I had an excellent experience. Because I travelled, she took into account any concerns that I had with the showing of my house. She was able to get my house sold in less than three months. With her experience, knowledge, and professionalism, I knew that my house was in good hands. I would highly recommend her."

  -James Vergonio, Client

"Crystal is a phenomenal Realtor. I have known her since 1988 and she has sold to a very wide range of clients who are extremely happy with her services including myself. I highly recommend her to anyone that is looking to sell or buy a property."

  -Laura Taylor Tyson, Client
