#Hobbspitality Technology Director

Born in Lynchburg, VA, Crystal Marie moved with her mom and two brothers to Burlington, NC when she was about 11 years old. Her dream of moving to the beach finally happened in 2005, and Crystal Marie has enjoyed raising her two daughters amongst the sand and surf.

Growing up, Crystal Marie would often tag along in the summers with her older sister, pulling up a chair and imitating her work as a receptionist. She has an Office Administration degree under her belt and most of her career has been in the hospitality industry. Her experience with us in 2013 began on the reservations team, working with guests to create and plan memorable vacations before she took on the role of a reliable project manager and new-hire training coordinator. Her next placement was working as an Administrative Assistant and then as Financial Director. Crystal Marie now provides a solid foundation for her team as the Technology Director. When speaking with Crystal Marie it is obvious that she has a broad knowledge and understanding of all we do here at Hobbs Realty.

Best Part of Hobbs Realty: My genuinely kind coworkers. Everyone here is so caring and it is a joy to work with them. 

After Hours: At the top of my list are outdoor activities like camping, swimming, hiking, and kayaking, as well as traveling and discovering new places. 

Pursuits: To one day (soon) travel to other countries, starting with Denmark and Switzerland

Alternate Dream Job: A consignment/thrift store owner. I love finding gems amongst the plunder!

Something Others May Not Know: I’m very fond of animals and have had many different pets throughout my life. I used to breed chihuahuas for many years and even had a pet flying squirrel! 

Inspired By: Good music with positive vibes that sends a positive message
