Crystal Washington is an experienced luxury real estate agent whose mission is to help people find the homes of their dreams and empower as many lives as possible through homeownership. Crystal and her team, Austin Luxury Listing Group, at Austin Portfolio Real Estate excel at providing a seamless end-to-end concierge service when selling, buying homes, or leasing property. 

Prior to becoming a top real estate agent in Austin, Crystal spent a decade uncovering and delivering impactful stories as an accomplished News Reporter and Anchor of local and national news. Her journey in Journalism took her to many states across the country including Hawaii, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, and the great state of Texas, where she and her husband currently reside and happily call Austin home. Initially, Crystal began her real estate career as an investor, acquiring multi-family homes and single-family rentals with her husband as means of retirement. After acquiring four units within their first three years, Crystal was infatuated with the industry and the wealth-building opportunities that real estate and property ownership had to offer.

Within her first year as a full-time real estate agent in the Central Texas market, Crystal was recognized as a top producing agent in her office. Her real estate success and unique combination of journalism experience quickly made her a distinctively valuable realtor. Crystal’s success in sales, knack for investing, skills in public relations, and knowledge in media marketing swiftly caught the attention of the CEO of Next Move, a luxury real estate brand. Next Move is an organization of distinguished agents who specialize in representing athletes, celebrities, and high net-worth individuals with relocation needs, helping them secure properties and investments during time-sensitive moves, trades, and retirement. Crystal rapidly earned the designation as the company’s representing agent for the Austin market and is a sought-after sports agent in the area.  In less than a year after joining Next Move, as a result of her performance, Crystal was selected as the company’s Marketing Director to help expand the brand throughout the United States and Europe. Crystal successfully increased membership and brand awareness by 30%. In her time with Next Move, Crystal has represented numerous professional clients in both the NFL and MLS and is a preferred agent of the Austin FC, the city’s major league soccer team. 

In 2022, Crystal was named Austin Home Magazine Realtor of the year for her work in luxury and personal investment acumen. In 2021, Crystal was recognized as one of the Top Producing Female Agents in Austin by Women in Austin Real Estate, an organization that rates local real estate experts based on sales, community impact, brand marketing, and altruism. Crystal’s key to success lays in her ability to create strong, meaningful relationships with others and her passion to be the advocate and educational presence for her clients. Outside of real estate and business, Crystal loves spending time with family and enjoying the charm of Austin and can often be found hiking the beautiful trails in the city, boating on Lake Travis, and trying all the great restaurants the city has to offer.
