Cristal Clarke is Once Again Acknowledged as Among the Best in the Business

More Accolades for top Montecito Realtor Cristal Clarke

The top Santa Barbara Realtor has garnered acclaim by the prestigious Thousand RealTrends + Tom Ferry International, ranking as the #6 Realtor in California and #23 in the nation based on sales data from 2021.

The annual awards ranking, featured in the Wall Street Journal, was developed by REALTrends, a leading source of analysis and information for the residential real estate brokerage industry, in partnership with Tom Ferry International, a leading real estate coaching and training company.

“This outstanding designation honors .07% of 1.4 million REALTORS® nationwide,” said Tom Ferry, Founder & CEO of Tom Ferry International. “Their resiliency and desire to serve those in their community and achieve the level of success it takes to be named in ‘’The Thousand ranking is highly commended.”

It’s not surprising that Cristal made this prestigious list since she currently enjoys a number of honors including:

  • #1 Agent Globally (among 50K+ BHHS agents – Individual agent by sales volume in 2021 for Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices)
  • #1 Agent in Santa Barbara Region MLS (by sales volume)
  • Chairman’s Circle Diamond Award (top one-half of 1% nationwide, year after year)
  • Rated Among “100 Best Real Estate Agents in California”
  • Rated Among “Best Real Estate Agents in America”

Since 2018, Cristal has closed more than $1B in sales. That number includes the 73 transactions she sold in 2021, totaling more than $417M in volume. This year, she has already closed $150M, and has $70M currently in escrow.

“I am grateful to all my clients both old and new for continuing to trust me in representing them. I am honored to be recognized by The Thousand from RealTrends + Tom Ferry International as one of the top 25 agents in the nation and top 10 in California,” Cristal said.

Cristal is one of 3,000 sales associates in 42 Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties offices from Santa Barbara to San Diego. In 2021, expert agents like her assisted in more than 11,500 client transactions for over $18B in sales volume, but only a handful were acknowledged for their outstanding work.

“It’s wonderful seeing these dedicated and caring agents acknowledged for their commitment to their clients and their profession,” says Martha Mosier, President of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties. “Congratulations to all the winners. You inspire us all to bring our A-game each and every day!”
