Residential real estate is big business in Montgomery County and Upper Northwest D.C. Last year, 6,500 detached single-family homes were sold in those areas for a total of about $6.5 billion, according to Bright MLS.

Not surprisingly, a large number of real estate agents live in Montgomery County—8,515 associate brokers, brokers and salespeople, according to the latest data from the Maryland Real Estate Commission.

But real estate agents don’t all perform equally. A small percentage of the agents sell a large percentage of the homes.

On this page we list the top producers—the individual agents with total sales in the county and Upper Northwest D.C. (ZIP codes 20015 and 20016) of at least $8 million from Nov. 1, 2021, through Oct. 31, 2022; and teams with at least $16 million in sales during the same period. 

In the list, we tag an elite group of agents and teams as “top tier producers.”  Those are agents who generated at least $15 million in sales, and teams who recorded average sales of at least $7.5 million per licensed team member. Top tier producers are designated with the symbol .

Agents and teams are listed in alphabetical order under the offices where they work. The list reflects the brokerage affiliation for the agents/teams and includes any changes that were reported to Bethesda Magazine by Jan. 1, 2023. Sales data was provided by the real estate brokerages and offices that are listed.
