Crystal Souza, MBA, REALTOR(S), was born and raised in Hawaii where she has a deep connection to the land, people, community and culture. Crystal works hard for the interest of her clients and will put her boots and gloves on to get dirty – from vacant land hikes to viewing the “fixer-upper”. She treats every transaction with discernment, confidentiality, and refinement to protect her clients financial and emotional regard. She recognizes that an individual’s Real Estate experience should be vast, such as that of first-time homebuyers or the seasoned investors, to which each level of service is customized. Clients can be assured that she will work tirelessly on their behalf to truly earn their respect and trust, but to overall be confident and pleased with their decision. Beginning in 1999, Crystal (and husband) completed their first Real Estate purchase and became a homeowner (Land & New Construction) at the age of 18 years old. From there her curiosity in the industry was initiated. Completing a new construction project at a young age took perseverance, creative thinking, problem-solving, and not allowing closed doors to prohibit the goal of homeownership. By age 30 she had built, and/or renovated multiple properties. Working at Lawrence Appraisal Group Hawaii for 10+ years, GP & Associate Appraisers for 3 years, and Insurance/Construction Inspections has expanded her trade knowledge and provided her with a unique vantage point when selling Real Estate. She will apply these tools analytically towards her client’s interest supporting negotiations on their behalf. Her previous professional experiences additionally include Hotel Finance and most recently Asset Management for her family-owned construction company that specializes in high-end swimming pool interiors. Crystal holds a double Bachelor of Arts Degrees in Psychology and Communication with her emphasis on “Culture” in both. Crystal also returned to school to finish her Graduate Degree and earned her Master’s in Business Administration from The University of Hawai’i at Manoa. While not at work she enjoys spending time with her family, volunteering at Hawaii Preparatory Academy where her children attend school, and Domestic & International travel.
