    I started renting my house through Wilgus Associates / Crystal in 2021. Never would I have thought that I could find someone who cares about renting my house as much as I do, but Crystal does. She is amazing in every aspect of her job. She fills the weeks with quality renters that they screen so I never have to worry about my house being damaged. You are in great hands with Crystal. She does such a great job that we bought another house to put in her hands. We look forward to our long future with Crystal and Wilgus Associates. Thank you, Crystal, for everything you do!!!!
