for Your Favorite Mortgage Loan Officer in the 2023 Wake Living's Readers' Choice Awards
Crystal Roma
Director of First Impressions

Looking for a Southern New Yorker? Crystal Roma is your girl! After living on Long Island for a majority of her life, Crystal made the move down to North Carolina in 2021 with her husband Dan, two teenage boys Daniel & Dylan, and two furry kids Koji and Munchkin. According to her, “moving to Carolina was the best decision my family has ever made. I love the people, the environment, the fresh air, and all of the beautiful trees and land.” Her career experience before joining The Sherry Riano Team included working as a licensed commercial insurance broker for 12 years, and then she became a NYS certified teaching assistant for 6 years. 

If you were to ask anyone in the office to describe Crystal in three words you would probably hear them say hardworking, positive, and outgoing. She truly is the ‘sunshine of the office’ and we can’t help but smile when she is around. If you haven’t gotten the opportunity to meet Crystal yet, just know that she has a love of unicorns, scaring/pranking her teammates and a thick Long Island accent. Crystal shared she has enjoyed working in the mortgage industry, but most importantly she loves being a member of The Sherry Riano Team. Her energy and passion for supporting our team shines through on a daily basis and this team wouldn’t be complete without her. 

After working with The Sherry Riano Team for only 6 months, we asked her what she loved most about the team, and her first response without hesitation was “EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE!!.” She confidently believes that “we have the best team in the game! All of us truly enjoy what we do and most importantly we care about the clients and Realtors we service. The work environment Sherry created makes our job so enjoyable and I look forward to coming into work each and every day. This priceless team environment transcends into what we do and how we are able to provide such excellent customer service starting from day one!”
