Crystal Brunet-Laughlin- Real Estate Advisor

Crystal brings so much to the table as a Real Estate Advisor on our team and we couldn’t be happier that she chose to work with our real estate “family”!

When you meet Crystal, you’ll just know that she’s the right agent for you.  Crystal is the “whole package” when it comes to choosing a Realtor.  She has the perfect balance of people skills and business acumen.   Her extensive social network and group of friends know her as bubbly, smart, funny, and empathetic.   At the same time she’s a force….  She’s strong, confident and fiercely focused on ensuring  her clients are looked after.  Immediately when you shake her hand, you’ll “just know” that Crystal has your back.  She won’t rest until you have the results that you need.

While relatively new to real estate, Crystal has aligned herself with the Steve Throndson and Associates team to leverage the decades of combined experience that our group has.  Crystal’s past work experience only adds to that deep well of transferable skills, training and experience.

What skills would you say are most important in the right Real Estate Advisor?  Customer service skills?  Sales experience?  Marketing?  Negotiation Experience? Communication?  Advocating for clients in difficult and sometimes stressful situations?   I’m sure you’d agree that these would all be skills and experience that you value in your agent!

Prior to Crystal’s career in real estate, she quickly climbed the career ladder in customer service roles where her clients would only see her. She lead competitive sales teams that required hustle, marketing, negotiation skills, attention to details and diligent follow up.

In addition to her experience in customer service and sales, Crystal has also worked as a Community Outreach Worker where she interacted in Provincial and Federal court, with RCMP as well as Social workers and people in need.  As you can imagine, this position required her to advocate for her clients, maintain absolute confidentiality as well as having a steady personality so she is able to handle all kinds of situations with grace and confidence.
