"We purchased a home through Crystal and then sold our existing home also using her services. Crystal was a value add for both processes and followed through on her commitments. Our purchase was on a non-conventional short sale. Through her knowledge and networks, Crystal was able to provide unique ideas and work arounds to help us jump through the many hoops that came with such a transaction. Then she turned around and presented a written offer less than a week after listing our existing home. The deal closed within a month. We feel fortunate to have such an outcome, especially in today's market, and Crystal played a key role."
"Crystal is an extremely driven real estate agent who knows the Austin market and delivers results. Crystal is professional, reliable and dependable. I've been able to call her at nearly any hour on any day and she's there to help. I have enjoyed working with Crystal in the past and I would recommend her without hesitation."

Crystal and everyone at AustinRealEstate.com were so helpful with my purchase of a condo in Austin. I can tell they really care about their clients. Even after I closed on the condo and they still helped me to set up everything to get completely moved in and finish a couple upgrades I wanted to do after purchasing. Crystal has been a great help for someone in a new city. She has given me so much information on Austin and has even invited me out for get togethers as well! This team has terrific agents who are not only great business people that will work hard to get you a great deal, but who are wonderful kind people in general who will make sure you have a successful move to a new city!
Crystal and the team at AustinRealEstate.com were all great. We came in from out of town and they rolled out the red carpet for us. Even though we ended up not moving to Austin, I remain impressed with Crystal and would definitely work with her again should the arc of life bring us to Austin at some point in the future.
When our daughter was moving to Austin I called several realtors and never "Clicked", that is until I talked with Crystal. Crystal listened to what we were looking for and we were on a strict timeline to purchase. We went out one day with Crystal and by the end of the day we found the property we "fell in love with", however is was a little out of our price range. Crystal convinced us this was a GREAT investment and we bought it. Our daughter unexpectedly took another job 6 months into her first year of the purchase. Crystal convinced us NOT to sell (which she could have made more money off of) but instead to lease the unit. We didn't sell, she helped us lease the unit and we have leased it NONSTOP for 3 1/2 years with only 2 tenants. We have had several offers from people to purchase the unit (for a substantial profit) and instead we are enjoying the monthly income we are receiving each month on the unit she convinced us to buy. In addition, Crystal has become a lifelong friend not only to my daughter, but to me as well! Crystal is like family..... she is awesome!
I have a lot of friends & connections who are real estate agents so I hesitated a bit before using AustinRealEstate.com's services, but I'm *eternally thankful* that I did.
I don't exaggerate when I say that Crystal Olenbush got my wife & I our dream home. I'm confident that if we were working with someone less experienced, less resourceful, or less driven we would have never had the opportunity to purchase our house. Rather than simply assuming the role of a representative, Crystal actively lobbied for our interests - and knowledgeably anticipated our interests & needs every step of the way. To say it bluntly, she fought for us. And she fought hard.
I highly recommend Crystal Olenbush & AustinRealEstate.com.
It's really hard to articulate how refreshing it is to deal with a real professional. Crystal Olenbush is by far the best-of-the-best and is the subject matter expert when it comes to Austin real estate. My fiance and I had moved to Austin from the Midwest and had no idea where we wanted to live. Crystal met with us when we first started looking at homes, and within about 30 minutes she qualified us for a very specific location just by briefly chatting about what's important to us. She was SPOT ON. In addition to being a total bad ass, she's patient as all get out. We set a timeline of about 18 months from the time we met with her, until we were going to be ready to move into a new home. She kept in touch the entire time, occasionally sending us listings just so we could keep up with the market. We ended up pulling the trigger a little sooner than initially expected, but she hopped right into the driver's seat, and took charge. She went to bat for us when it was time to make offers, and managed to negotiate one hell of a deal for the absolute PERFECT home for us. Did I mention she did all of this while nearly 9 months pregnant and didn't skip a beat? She also has a fabulous assistant, so if Crystal is busy, you can always get help.
My wife and I recently worked with Crystal Olenbush, to sell our existing home and purchase a new house. Without equivocation, this was the best experience we have ever had buying or selling real estate. Having worked with several other realtors over the years, Crystal is simply the "best of the best" in this business. She is the hardest working, most knowledgeable and most accessible realtor we have ever worked with. As a negotiator, whether selling or buying, Crystal is a "bull dog" on steroids... nothing escapes her attention to detail. She fights for her clients and will not back down until she achieves everything she possibly can in the transaction. Crystal Olenbush is an incredible professional in every respect. In the end, our business relationship evolved into a wonderful friendship that my wife and I treasure. I cannot more strongly recommend Crystal Olenbush to anyone interested in selling an existing property or purchasing a new home in the greater Austin area.
Crystal handled the sale of our house in the Hill Country west of Austin a couple of years ago when we moved away from Texas, and she and her team did a spectacular job! She is very knowledgeable about the real estate market in the Austin area and took the time to make us feel comfortable about the pricing strategy she suggested. As part of her sales effort, Crystal arranged for an impressive marketing video showcasing our house, which we still enjoy viewing from time to time! The whole process, including the closing, went smoothly, and we would highly recommend her to anyone.
