Crystal Pitts, CFS, Flooring Design Consultant


A native of Bay County, Crystal began her career with us in 2000. With her bright smile and immense industry knowledge, Crystal has made lasting friendships with many a client. She says the feeling she gets from seeing customers’ happy faces never wears old. Over the years, Crystal has assisted in some truly unique and exciting projects: most notably the Pirate Ship sailing out of Treasure Harbor Marina. Indeed, no project is too big- or too small for Crystal’s talents. When she’s not hard at work bringing décor dreams to reality, Crystal enjoys family time with her husband and their two children. Outdoor activities are a favorite, and the family frequently goes camping, deep-sea fishing, and on trips to the seashore.
