101 people you want on your side. Plus—who’s buying and selling the most in our hot market.
About Best Agents
In one of the nation’s hottest housing markets, which is home to thousands of real-estate agents, arriving at a list of 101 names was no simple feat. First, we surveyed nearly 50,000 local Washingtonian subscribers, plus the more than 1,000 agents who made last year’s Best Agents and Top Producers lists. We asked both groups whom they’ve most enjoyed working with, based on a number of criteria including market knowledge, integrity, communication skills, and closing preparation. We further vetted those results by contacting still more real-estate industry professionals, among them mortgage brokers, additional agents, and home inspectors. For those house-hunting in particular areas, we’ve included neighborhoods where each agent does business. But these are only examples—many of them work all over Washington.
About Top-Selling Agents
Here are agents and teams who produced among the highest sales volumes in Washington last year, along with the areas where they’re licensed. We compiled this list of top producers by surveying more than 100 of the region’s biggest real-estate offices and limiting results to agents based in DC; Montgomery, Prince George’s, Anne Arundel, and Howard counties in Maryland; and Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, and Prince William counties in Virginia.
If your real-estate office didn’t receive a Top Producers survey this year and you’d like to participate in 2017, please contact senior editor Marisa M. Kashino.
