Crystal Stroud

Crystal Stroud is currently the Director of Management Operations at Stellar Communities and is a little “ball of fire” when it comes to asset management and overseeing the daily operations of the company’s entire portfolio. She leads her team with her drive for strategic marketing solutions, passion for sales, and unwavering focus on driving NOI and delivering consistent financial performance.

Crystal was born and raised in West Texas and is a proud graduate of Texas Tech University. Crystal says she caught “the bug” for the multi-family industry during her tenure in the conventional and student housing industry. She loves the ever-changing dynamic of the multi-family industry and the opportunities it has presented to her. Crystal swears that she can write a “tell all” book about all the “interesting” things she has come across during her career. It’s an industry that keeps you on your toes and that’s why she loves it.

Crystal, along with her husband, Matt, enjoy each and every day with their two sons, Carter and Callen. You might find Crystal escaping to a quiet place to read or listen to her favorite music…but she doesn’t stay still long…she also enjoys running and traveling with her family and friends.
