WASHINGTON REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT TRUST ANNOUNCES
FOURTH QUARTER AND YEAR-END FINANCIAL AND OPERATING RESULTS FOR 2012

Washington Real Estate Investment Trust (“WRIT” or the “Company”) (NYSE: WRE), a leading owner and operator of diversified properties in the Washington, D.C. region, reported financial and operating results today for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012.

Strategic Initiatives

WRIT announced last month a simplification of its diversified strategy to focus on office, multifamily and retail assets - committing to a “live, work and shop in Washington, DC” focus for future investment.  To accelerate this strategy, WRIT announced that it is exploring a 2013 disposition of its 1.3 million square foot Medical Office Division.  

“WRIT's 53 year history of successfully owning and operating a diversified Washington, DC property portfolio has served its investors well.  As we look forward to the next 50 years, we see our strategy of focusing on the “live, work and shop” assets in urban locations, typically inside the beltway or near Metro, as the best way to continue to provide future growth for our shareholders.  Keeping future investment decisions to three divisions; office, multifamily and retail assets, we simplify our business model and narrow our capital allocation process while we continue to improve the quality and location of our assets,” stated John P. McDaniel, Chairman of WRIT's Board of Trustees.

WRIT anticipates capturing embedded value through the potential Medical Office Division sale, which should provide a lower cost of capital to continue to improve the quality, age and location of WRIT's properties in its core office, multifamily and retail sectors.  The Medical Office Division represents the largest portfolio of institutional quality medical office assets in the Washington, DC region, with all of the assets in affluent communities or urban centers or near major medical centers such as INOVA Fairfax, Shady Grove Adventist and George Washington Hospital. 

Financial Results

Core Funds from Operations(1), defined as Funds from Operations(1) (“FFO”) excluding acquisition expense, gains or losses on extinguishment of debt, property impairment, and severance expense related to corporate reorganization, was $1.90 per diluted share for the year and $0.47 per diluted share for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, respectively, as compared to $1.95 per diluted share and $0.47 per diluted share for the corresponding periods in 2011.

Included in fourth quarter 2011 results was a $0.01 per diluted share charge related to a lawsuit with a former tenant at Westminster Shopping Center.

FFO for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $122.5 million, or $1.84 per diluted share, compared to
