We provide appraisal and consulting services on complex properties. It is rare to find such knowledgeable and professional practitioners in niche areas of real estate as I have found in the Kennedys. They have been very helpful to us on a recent project. They are straight shooters. If I were in the market to sell or purchase a Northwest Region recreational inn, I would want to work with the best. Crystal Investment has proven that they rank the top spot.

Thank you so much for your assistance in finding a buyer and making the sale. Thanks for the effort and time you put into assisting us in selling our property.
We would be doing a happy dance, but we will do a happy clap and tap instead. It was nice doing business through you and we will certainly recommend you in the future. Do stay in touch.
Have a happy and profitable 2018!!!

Joseph listed and marketed my hotel/restaurant property for sale. He is very professional and knows the industry extremely well. He stays on top of the changing economy and is very knowledgeable with the hospitality industry. I followed his advice and we executed a successful sell. I would recommend Joseph and Crystal Investments properties for buyers and sellers.

We had the privilege of working with CIP on a potential sale of a property a few months back. Our perspective is probably a bit different as we were brought in to help the potential owner put renovation budgets together for property improvements required by the brand they were considering. What was so over the top about CIP was that they were consistently working behind the scenes to help provide us with the information required to aid the potential owner in the budgeting / PIP process. The entire team went above and beyond any broker we have worked with in the hospitality industry, and were clearly committed to the potential buyer, and their interests.
I must give you credit for doing such a professional marketing service for your clients. If we have any properties that are planning to sell or know of anyone planning to liquidate their properties, I will certainly recommend you and your company.

It was a pleasure working with Joe and CIP. He is a responsive and thorough broker who balances the needs of the seller and buyer. We appreciate the efforts in our recent transaction and hope to have future endeavors brokered through Joe and his team.
I would like to thank the Seller's agent for maintaining an excellent communication with everyone so that we stayed on track. Thanks for a job well done. Particularly when everyone seems to be pleased. Thanks, Donn
Overall, we're very satisfied with our hotel, it has SO much potential and possibility for growth, I'm just excited to see what the future holds for us here in Lynnwood.
I would like to take a moment and thank you for your dedication and effort in completing this transaction, it definitely was not easy, but with your and Joe Field's assistance and perseverance, we got it done!!!!!!!! Thank you very much

CIP has been a pleasure to work with in the sale of our hotel properties. CIP’s marketing generated a consistent high level of interest from qualified Buyers over the term of our relationship. Joe Kennedy is an experienced and skilled negotiator who walked us through multiple offers and the consummation of several transactions with professionalism, excellent communication and courtesy. CIP’s staff provided service and support throughout the process, keeping the parties and their advisors on track. We highly recommend CIP!
Thank you for your professionalism when we were working with you on acquiring a hotel/Inn. My experience with you was very positive... I wish you much success in your future endeavors and hope our paths will cross again.
[CIP] has been consistently a real pleasure to deal with on all levels. Consummate professionals whose communication skills, along with their sincere drive, create successful, smooth business transactions. I have not found a better group in their field.

Changing careers from the public accounting and financial services business to become a resort owner has been a dream. But in the current economy, my financial and accounting background did not carry much weight with lenders.
Joe and Michelle at CIP would not give up on me or this project. Through their considerable efforts, we found a lender and worked through lender concerns to come up with a financing package that worked well for everyone.
Given the uniqueness of the Eagle Cap Chalets and my particular circumstances, there were many other hurdles as well, but Joe and Michelle guided me through them all. And now the dream has come true.

When it comes to hospitality brokering in the Pacific Northwest, Michelle & Joe Kennedy at Crystal Investment Property definitely lead the pack! In my 20 years of commercial insurance and risk management service to the NW community, I have not found another firm ANYWHERE that has the depth of industry knowledge, the cutting edge technology, and the personal attention to detail and service that CIP brings to the table. Michelle & Joe exhibit focused intensity, enthusiasm, and unwavering dedication to every transaction and are definitely valued by their clients and vendors alike. They truly are “The Northwest Hospitality Specialists”!

In our over 17 years of brokering hotel/motel loans we have found Crystal IP to be some of the most industry knowledgeable, resourceful and professional real estate brokers that we have ever been involved with. We highly recommend them.

I have had the pleasure of working with Joe & Michelle Kennedy at Crystal Investment Property, LLC on a number of occasions both on the “buying-side” and “selling-side” of a given transaction. Joe & Michelle have a unique understanding of the hospitality industry in the Pacific Northwest. They work tirelessly to make sure their clients’ goals are met within the context of the transaction. Moreover, their friendly demeanor makes it a joy to work with them. I am looking forward to working with Joe & Michelle again in the future.
CIP has been great to work with on exploring possible investment opportunities. Thanks to their patience, and easy to understand process, I was able to gain a firm understanding of how to make my investment properties work best for my investment style. After working with CIP, I'll never deal with another firm again.
Justin B., Investor
I'm amazed at CIP's depth of knowledge, and how easily they present the information in a way I can understand.
Eve G., Investor
CIP stands out as a brokerage by following through on every step of the transaction, beginning to end. Too often you see a broker walk away figuring their job is done once the contract is signed, but not CIP. Their attention to detail gets the job done!

It is a real pleasure working with Brokers who are so competent and thorough.
