Updated: Feb 16, 2023

In honor of its150-year anniversary, Brown Harris Stevens held a special celebration at the famed Metropolitan Club in Manhattan. Over 1,000 attendees enjoyed a night of live entertainment, fine dining, upbeat dancing, and more.

"[There have been] been boom cycles, bust cycles. We’ve lived through wars, changing skylines, evolving technology," said CEO Bess Freedman in a speech during the evening, reflecting on the firm's sustained success over the years.

Attendees were greeted by a highlights video celebrating the firm's history and tie-ins to major historical events. The film was projected onto a wall in the grand reception hall as electric violinist Sarah Charles—famous for her work with Diana Ross, The Chainsmokers, and Steve Aioki, to name a few—played in the background.

The celebration spanned three floors, each presenting unique guest offerings, including fine dining, cocktails, a projected timeline of the firm's history, and a vibrant dance room complete with pyrotechnic effects.

"An elegant library warmed by a lit fireplace housed the desserts, while light displays adorned the walls and pop music blared from a DJ on the upstairs pyrotechnic dance floor." — Harrison Connery and Sheridan Wall, "The Real Deal"
