Washingtonian hosted a reception at Ping Pong Dim Sum in Chinatown honoring the Top Real Estate Agents featured in the July issue. More than 350 guests enjoyed a variety of hors d’oeuvres including pork and chive pretzel potstickers, crispy eggplant, and edamame truffle dumplings, as well as tasty cold blue martinis and basil and melon lemonade cocktails. Event sponsor MVB Mortgage hosted a lounge where guests could relax and enjoy chicken satay sliders, honey roasted chicken puffs, and delicious chocolate and sesame donuts. At the conclusion of the event, guests took home faux Washingtonian covers provided by Washington Talent Agency, beautiful calligraphy by Meant To Be Calligraphy, and Monarch Title and MVB Mortgage branded cookies by District Desserts.
