Who’s Who in Seattle Real Estate?


Real estate influencers and the best in Seattle real estate joined us at The Emerald on October 19th from 5pm – 7pm for libations, hors d’oeuvres and mingling with the best in the business as we celebrated the launch of Seattle Agent Magazine’s inaugural Who’s Who in Seattle Real Estate issue!



Seattle Agent Magazine covers residential real estate news, providing information to real estate professionals across the city and suburbs. Top industry leaders are selected through a nomination process to highlight in the popular annual issue: Who’s Who in Seattle Residential Real Estate. The Emerald was chosen, not only to play host to the issue release, but as the photo shoot site weeks in advance, where agents posed in the Olympic Room to a backdrop of incredible water views and various model residences framing Seattle’s epic scenery. In the Who’s Who issue, we celebrate local professionals and learn more about how they got to where they are today, what keeps them going and, most importantly, why they do what they do. Making the cover issue of 2022 are Christine Madrid, Max Rombakh and Ming Fung.




To celebrate the issue release, agents arrived to a step and repeat located right off the elevator and were led into The Emerald’s 39th Floor Olympic Room, a striking architectural statement designed by the Seattle-based, female led duo Julia Nagele, Principal, Director of Design – Architecture at Hewitt Architects, and interiors by local interior designer Susan Marinello of Susan Marinello Interiors. This amenity space showcases stunning views of Elliott Bay offering residents plenty of seating, high-speed internet, and accordion doors which open onto the Emerald Veranda to the north and Rainier Terrace to the south, making it the ideal place to kick back and enjoy views of Mt. Rainier, the Space Needle and the Olympic Mountains.




“We were honored that Seattle Agent Magazine asked us to host and gave us the opportunity to network within the real estate community while showing off our beautiful space at The Emerald. It was so nice to see a lot of new faces in the building, as well as some familiar favorites. The Olympic Room on the top floor of the building truly is a captivating space. There’s nothing quite like looking out across Elliott Bay to the Olympic Mountains, especially as the sun is setting. I really enjoyed seeing our guests’ faces light up as they took in the views while exploring the building, and hearing how we have the best rooftop in Seattle is always music to my ears,” said Brooke Kavieff, The Emerald Sales Manager.


105 industry leaders attended the signature event which included speakers of the night: Anne Hartnett, Managing Partner of Seattle Agent Magazine, Bing Feng, CEO of Create World Real Estate Inc., and Brooke Kavieff, Polaris Pacific Sales Manager at The Emerald. Guests mingled among the Terra Bella Flowers floral arrangements, created in black and red to align with Seattle Agent Magazine’s palette while enjoying incredible hors d’oeuvres and libations from The Catering Company. Everything from the full-service bar to the Canape, Silver Dollar Crab Cakes and Chimichurri Beef Crostini were a hit with guests.
