The generous gift of Crystal was made to the Santa Barbara Chapter of The Charitable Foundation, a not-for-profit organization run by the dedicated real estate agents and employees of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties. Cristal chose The Charitable Foundation because of the support it provides to local organizations that promote health, education, community and the environment in Santa Barbara County.

Giving back to the community she loves is nothing new for Cristal, an agent in the Montecito Midtown office and the # 1 individual agent in the world for Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. Cristal has supported small local businesses in and around the community where she lives for many years. When the pandemic struck, she saw firsthand how owners and employees of small businesses were affected. âThey needed funds and support to help keep their doors open, and I was very grateful to be able to help them,â Cristal said.
âCristal has always been an extremely generous and gracious person, both personally and professionally,â said Kyle Kemp, Vice President, Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties. âShe actively seeks out the needs of the community and strives to meet them, without thinking of herself.

Cristal felt the best time to make a compassionate donation was now, in November, in honor of National Giving Day.

It was his way of thanking local business owners and the people who form the fabric of the community in which they live and work.
