Sotheby’s International Realty Santa Fe broker Darlene Streit was the No. 1 selling Santa Fe broker in 2020 with more than $264 million in sales, according to a Sotheby’s analysis of Santa Fe Association of Realtors data.
Streit has ranked No. 1 in Santa Fe each year since 2016 and in 2012. She also ranked No. 2 in sales nationwide among all Sotheby's agents.
Streit sold 276 homes in 2020. Her 2020 dollar sales eclipsed her $171 million in sales in 2019 and $148 million in 2018.
“I could have shattered it even more if we had more inventory,” said Streit, referring to Santa Fe County having a record-low 1.5 months' worth of homes on the market in the fourth quarter. “So many people are coming here looking for homes.”
Santa Fe has seen a homebuying frenzy during the pandemic.
“They are just wanting to get out of the large city and have the great lifestyle here,” Streit said. “It’s the ease of life here.”
