Each year since 1950, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance automobile show has drawn thousands of car aficionados and collectors to the beautiful, pine tree-fringed beaches of Carmel-by-the-Sea. The gathering is one of the most anticipated of the season. This year’s event on Sunday, August 18 is sure to attract a bevy of designers, racing pros, industry leaders and media representatives.

Ahead of the Concours d’Elegance, The Agency’s Carmel-by-the-Sea office will proudly sponsor The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, set at the Quail Lodge & Golf Club. This garden party-style event takes place on Friday, August 16 from 10am to 4pm and is set amidst the club’s pristine 18-hole golf course, with a picturesque backdrop of the Santa Lucia mountain range. The daytime showcase will serve up exceptional local cuisine and offer guests an up-close look at a range of contemporary and vintage vehicles—some of which can even be taken out for a test drive. 

“Carmel-by-the-Sea is one of California’s most uniquely beautiful coastal enclaves, and our local team is honored to be a part of this year’s Concours d’Elegance, which is such an iconic event in the region,” notes Braden Sterling, managing director of The Agency’s Carmel office and principal of Sterling|Huddleson Architecture

While in town for the week’s festivities, stop by The Agency’s new Carmel-by-the-Sea office for an Open House on Tuesday, August 13 from 2-5pm. Tour the new space on San Carlos Street (3NE of 6th), meet the team and enjoy libations and light fare from local restaurant The Stationaery

“We are thrilled to welcome members of the community and out-of-own visitors to our new office. The Open House is a great opportunity to get to know our neighbors, toast our new space and share what we love about this area,” says Cicily Sterling, who represents some of Carmel-by-the-Sea’s most incredible listings, including 3290 17 Mile Drive—one of only 31 coveted waterfront properties in Pebble Beach, which offers extraordinary ocean views from every room—and the iconic Seven Gables Inn, which is perched on a scenic seaside cove in Pacific Grove.
