Christ Tier: Trump, Kushner, Alex Rodriguez & Co., Kardashian Family Office, Gwenyth Paltrow as a One Woman Entity ("OWE", trademarked by Gwenyth Paltrow, infringement aggressively enforced)   

Demigod Tier: Cardone, Word Class, Zillow's Apartment Flipping Unit

Wack: Blackstone, Ares, Carlyle, JPMAM (or is it JPMIM, I forget?), Square Mile, Hines, Tishman, DRA 

Not doing a tier list or ranking firms but I'd argue that all of these are in whatever the "top" tier is across sectors. Obviously there are others that should be included too, but I think most would agree these are among the best,

BX, Carlyle, Brookfield, Related, TCC, Hines, Crow Holdings, Tishman, Starwood, Lincoln, and then Eastdil/CBRE/JLL if you want to include brokers. 

Once you throw in regional/more specialized shops it gets too confusing. I also know there are other large firms I didn't include (greystar for ex) but I think most would consider them a step down from whatever "S tier" is.
