Residential real estate is big business in Montgomery County and Upper Northwest D.C. Last year, 8,965 detached single-family homes were sold in those areas for a total of about $6.3 billion, according to Bright MLS.

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, 2019, through Oct. 31, 2020; and teams with at least $16 million in sales during the same period. Agents are eligible to appear on the list individually and as part of a team.
