Carrie Crews

Broker Associate

Hello, my name is Carrie Crews and this year I will celebrate 15 years of being a Realtor. I have had the honor of being Top Producer for CW Realty for the last 10 of those years. During this time, I have experienced a declining market full of short sales and foreclosures, to a booming market where you barely get a home listed and it’s sold. Through it all, I’ve had the amazing opportunity to help both buyers and sellers navigate the ever changing market. This is more than a career for me, it’s my passion, and thanks to the help and support of my family, I get to help others make their dreams come true.

Crystal Rosier

REALTOR

Starting with CW Realty in 2014, I quickly grew addicted to the thrill of connecting with as many people as possible and truly listening to their goals and working out a plan with them to achieve them.

Teaching has always come natural to me bc I love the light bulb moments that others experience through my guidance. I love helping first time home buyers reach a goal they thought was unobtainable. I thrive most when speaking vision over fixer uppers and seeing investors cash in on equity. I empathized when families are selling off properties of loved ones passed. It’s all about helping each person through their immediate season of life, and gaining their trust and loyalty to be there as those seasons change over the years.

This experience has equipped me to deliver exceptional service to my customers, whether you are exploring your first home purchase, expanding your property portfolio, or seeking undeveloped land, from start to finish, my goal is to make sure that every step of the transaction process is stress free for you. Whether it’s assisting with paperwork, answering any questions you may have, or providing support along the way, I am here to help.

In 2010, I met my husband, who is from Starke and later made the move there where we started our family. In my free time I love spending time with my family on the water, boating and kayaking and at church.  After many years in the office environment, I needed a change and one that allowed me to be there for my family more.  I made the decision to become a Realtor and am so glad I did! I love that I get to meet new people, and help them with their dreams and goals in real estate, whether it is a growing family looking for a bigger home, first-time home buyers, or a need for a retirement home. Everyday is a new adventure and I am happy that I can help navigate through some of the stress of the selling and buying process.
