IN 2006, AFTER graduating college at Nicholls State University and working in customer service at Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Crystal Reese was hired into her first position in the mortgage industry with HSBC bank. Times were tough in the mortgage industry between 2006 and 2008 when the market crashed. Sitting at home one evening watching the news, she learned that HSBC mortgage division was closing all of their offices around the entire U.S., so she no longer had a job. Over the next few years, underwriting became even more difficult as most companies were struggling to remain open. Through the changes and closures, Crystal was learning all the ins and outs of the mortgage industry and programs that were needed to be able to help local families make their dreams come true. She decided in June 2018 to venture out and open her own mortgage brokerage firm making it her goal to help as many clients in the community to find their perfect home.
