Stribling & Associates again headed to the Doubles Club for its annual holiday party this year.

Guests entered through a door in the lobby of the Sherry-Netherland, down a path of red, fabric-lined stairs — to find a festive venue complete with miniature Christmas trees and an array of small ornaments hung from the ceiling. Partygoers at the Fifth Avenue fête chatted with agents and brokerage executives while treated to an open bar and passed hors d’oeuvres.

Stribling’s president Elizabeth Ann Stribling-Kivlan made her way through the crowd, encouraging guests to mingle and making introductions. Her mother Elizabeth, who founded the firm in the 1980s, was also at the party. Other guests included Kristen Hurd, who joined the firm in June to work on implementing new technology and expand into new markets. Steven Rutter, director of Stribling Marketing Associates, and Gina Castellano, sales manager for the Brooklyn office, also made an appearance.

Some of Stribling’s notable listings include the Upper East Side building that was once slated to be a megamansion for rapper and producer Diddy. Agents including Alexa Lambert and Timothy Desmond listed the Park Avenue property for $29 million in November. The brokerage also had the listing for late celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain’s UES home.
