Photos from the 2019 Top Real Estate Agents Cocktail Reception

Washington's top real estate agents and producers gathered to celebrate the 2019 honorees.

Washingtonian celebrated the 2019 Top Real Estate Agents and Producers list, featured in the July 2019 issue of the magazine, with a cocktail reception at City Winery. Over 600 of the area’s best agents gathered on Thursday, July 18 to celebrate their accomplishments and those of their fellow honorees. Guests enjoyed lounges courtesy of Chubb and PenFed Credit Union, with the furniture provided by Red House Staging & Interiors. The highlight of the evening was the faux cover stations where attendees took photos of themselves on the cover of Washingtonian magazine, and the four photo stations were provided by Washington Talent Agency. City Winery provided a delicious menu of light bites and a full bar, including some of their signature wines. DJ Chris Laich kept the party going with a great soundtrack.
