Meet the Team!

I moved to the San Diego area as a newly married Navy wife in 1994. I became a home owner for the first time in 1997 when my husband, Jay, and I moved to a newly-built home.  The search for the right place wasn’t without its challenges but, in the process, I realized how much I loved the experience of finding that perfect home. The next few years were focused on family as I had two sons, Carlos and Joseph, now 20 and 18. My boys have been involved in our local community youth sports year round, and my family and I have made many wonderful lifelong friends here. After a few years at home with the kids, and my husband transferring to shore duty, I decided it was time for me to pursue my professional goals, and I began my Real Estate career. With over 15 years of Real Estate experience I found my true passion, and love that I can share that with my Team! I truly love living here, and love making the dream of home ownership come true for other San Diego families. My motto is “Live here, work here, play here.”

I have been a San Diego resident since 1999 and have lived in many areas of San Diego, from North County to the South Bay. Since 2005 I have worked in many aspects of Real Estate - from Title to Escrow and now as an Agent - which gives me a unique perspective that not many agents have. I understand the transaction from start to finish! My husband, Al, is former Navy and now works as a software engineer. Our daughter, lzabella, is a middle schooler and dances, sings & cheers with Cheerforce All Star. Nothing gives me more joy than helping families realize the American Dream of homeownership. I have facilitated many transactions throughout San Diego county; from 1st time home buyers to Investors to Military families moving from out of state...just to name a few! I strive to create client relationships built on trust and confidence, and the majority of my business is built entirely upon referrals from clients who are 100% satisfied with the professional and caring service they received from me. I look forward to helping your family achieve their dream!

Born and raised in San Diego, I have been a local Real Estate consultant for over 12 years. Tim, my husband of 23 years and also a San Diego native, has a successful career as a Senior Financial Planner with MassMutual. Our daughter, Hannah is a recent graduate of UC Berkeley, majoring in Sustainable Environmental Design. Our oldest son, Cole, is now a Sophomore at SDSU; and our youngest son, Aaron, is now a Junior at Eastlake High. In my free time I enjoy traveling the world, spoiling my French Bulldogs, the beach and family time. I am committed to working with my clients as a team to accomplish their goals and objectives and make myself readily available to open and frequent communication. Listening to my clients' desires, preferences, and goals allows a partnership that ultimately leads to success & happiness for my clients!

I arrived in San Diego in 1990.  Having lived in several different communities throughout the area, I guess you could say that I really love San Diego!  I currently live in a beautiful neighborhood with my husband Larry, a retired Navy Seal, and my two boys Zachary, 26 and Michael, 12.  My son Zachary participated in numerous sports, all the way up through high school, lettering in football and lacrosse, he is currently set to enlist in the US Navy. Michael is also active playing many San Diego Youth Sports such as baseball, BMX, football and soccer. I was self employed for many years as a 3rd party logistics coordinator and felt it was time for a change.  When long-time friend Rachel Crawford told me she was building her Real Estate team, I jumped at the opportunity to face new challenges, learn a new business and I haven’t looked back!

Born in "America's Finest City" to a Naval officer, I was ecstatic when my then-fiance (also USN) received orders to San Diego in the late 90's. My husband & I were married here, started our family here with the birth of our eldest son & fell in love with the city! I could not wait to return with my family and we purchased our 1st home in the Spring of 2010. Now, 19 years later than when we started...My husband, Loren, is a Retired USN Senior Chief and we have 2 sons, ages 18 and 14. Both boys, Michael & Toren, are active in a variety of community programs; including school ASB, martial arts, piano lessons & more! I cannot say enough good things about the neighborhoods & the people and enjoy  soaking up the culture at Balboa Park & the beauty of our local beaches as much as possible! I am thankful each & everyday to have the privilege of working with the amazing ladies that make up Crawford Team.  Being a part of such a talented Team is truly a rewarding experience!
