Hailing from a 50-year legacy of successful real estate professionals, some might say the field was her birthright. Others might say it was her destiny. But ask any of the thousands of clients whom she’s helped over the past 15 years, and they’ll tell you it’s in her blood. This is Crystal Duckworth. She’s an award-winning certified luxury real estate agent named among the top 5% of realtors in northeast Florida, the 10 Best Real Estate Agents, and Best of the Best Real Estate Agents. And as the founder and broker of Crystal Clear Realty, a boutique firm ranked Best of the Best Brokerages, she is the go-to source for developers, builders, and home buyers and sellers across the state. With tens of thousands of transactions over her career, Crystal has built a well-earned reputation as an expert across the real estate realm—from land acquisition to community development to helping people acquire their dream homes. But it’s not the accolades or the awards that drive her, it’s the people she serves. “Selling something that is so emotionally connected matters to me,” she shares. “Being able to understand people and what they want on so many different levels is what I love. That’s where my passion comes from.”
While some people seek their passion, Crystal’s found her. While she was working as a regional manager in medical sales, she got her real estate license and viewed it as more of a side hustle, but she quickly fell in love with the field. With the experience gained as a Multi-Million Producer and with her expertise as a former construction business owner, Crystal founded Crystal Clear Realty in 2016 to serve both residential and commercial clients across northeast Florida and internationally. As she leads a group of “rock star realtors” and the firm’s expansion with property management, new construction and community development divisions, as well as the black diamond luxury properties worldwide division, she serves as the driving force behind multimillion dollar developments. Backed by degrees in psychology and business, multiple certifications, and a forward-thinking mindset, Crystal continues to lead her team into the future while keeping one foot firmly planted in the tradition of interpersonal connections. “We continually employ innovative technologies to ensure the greatest success of our clients, whether that means the development of entire communities or helping people buy or sell their homes, yet at the same time, we remain cognizant that people deserve our genuine commitment.”
It is precisely this unique combination of unwavering passion and wealth of knowledge that continue to draw an ever-growing number of clients to Crystal and her likeminded team. “I really feel like real estate was my destiny,” she shares. “A home is the family foundation, and to be part of that is so rewarding,” she shares. “As we continue to grow, I feel like I’ve only just scratched the surface. I’m incredibly excited for the future.”
Crystal is equally committed to her community. Through her initiative, Crystal Clearly Cares, her firm donates a portion of their commission to a charity of the client’s choice at closing. Crystal is also a certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist and Negotiation Expert.
