For experienced Realtor Hala Adra, real estate is about helping every client find their way home.
Hala knows that buying or selling is a transformative life milestone, and one that’s often defined
by numerous complexities and challenges. That’s why she works tirelessly every day to be the
trusted advisor her clients deserve, one who can help them navigate every potential roadblock
to make their dreams a reality. How? By combining unrivaled local insight, creative vision, and
the compassionate drive to make a difference in the lives of her clients.
Forced to flee her homeland of Beirut in 1985, Hala knows all too well how intimidating it can be
to start a new chapter. Luckily, she had traveled to DC once before, and sensed she could
envision building a life here. Her instinct proved correct, and she has called our nation’s capital
home ever since. After a stint working for the embassy of the U.A.E, Hala made the transition to
real estate at the behest of her brother, who knew what a valued resource she could be to any
buyer or seller thanks to her impressive business acumen, deep connections within the diplomat
community, and love of working with people. Hala made the move, and instantly knew it was her
calling to help others find their place in the DC area just as she had found hers.
Today, Hala is a reputable, award-winning Associate Broker who brings over 25 years of
industry experience to each transaction. She’s best known by clients for her can-do attitude,
world-class service approach, and inventive problem-solving skills. Whether she’s guiding first-
time buyers or seasoned sellers, Hala is a dedicated advocate for every client, always working
to find the right solutions by putting their interests first. She also offers extensive insight into the
entire DMV area—from the manicured sidewalks of McLean, to the bustling streets of DC, and
the scenic pathways of Bethesda.
Hala is impressively well-traveled, and has participated in many local and international real
estate conferences as part of her quest to be a lifelong learner. Such exposure has empowered
her to continually uncover inventive marketing angles for sellers, strategically positioning each
listing in the light that will most effectively maximize its value. And as a multilingual Realtor with
enduring international ties, Hala connects buyers from across the globe with sellers in the DC
area, turning every networking opportunity into a successful sale benefiting all parties involved.
Hala has recorded $250 million in sales to date, and is consistently recognized by
Washingtonian as a top producer year after year. Although for Hala, the results she creates for
her clients are the ones that matter most. It’s no surprise, then, that her business is 90% repeat
and referral-based, or that she’s built a reputation as one of the most reliable, devoted Realtors
When she’s not working for her clients, you can find Hala entertaining friends, gardening,
decorating, and exploring the vibrant sights of the entire DMV Metro Area. She also loves
traveling, relaxing on the beach, listening to live music, and watching shows on Broadway.

"I've had the opportunity to work with Hala both from a buyer's perspective at one point, as well as a seller's perspective recently. When I decided to list my property in the midst of a pandemic, I turned to her for guidance and advice. The end result was my property going under contract less than 24 hours after listing it, and only 2 weeks after deciding to sell it. If you are looking for a real estate professional that consistently delivers results, I believe you'd have a great experience with Hala." - Abdallah A.
"Our review and our words don't even begin to give her the credit Hala deserves. She was the most amazing agent. We began our search for a home two years ago with very particular requests. Hala was incredibly patient with us throughout the whole process, constantly taking notes, and keeping a list of our needs, and working tirelessly to find us our dream house. She consistently took hours out of her day to show us four or five houses at a time. We so appreciated how she always gave her most honest opinion of the homes we saw and kept all of our needs and desires in mind. She never once pushed us to make a decision we weren't comfortable with, and in fact, told us when she didn't think a house would be right for us. We never felt pushed or pressured. When she saw the house we ended up buying, she immediately told us we had to see it because it met every item on our list. She was supportive, extremely helpful, and professional through the offer process. She always made us feel comfortable and fought in our best interest. She is truly the best agent you can find and we wouldn't have our perfect home without her. We recommend working with her 110%." - May K.
"Although I am an attourney, I was looking for a real estate professional into whose hands I could put the sale of my home and whose judgement and ethics I could trust completely. Hala was perfect and pleasant!! She gave me good advice on pricing, found a fantastic company to stage the property, and thought of and through every detail. She was a joy to work with, and I recommend her highly!! 5-stars+!" - David M.
"Hala Adra was amazing!! She was very knowledgable and well informed. She answered all our inquiries in a very informed manner. She also understood our requirements and used that to narrow down our search and save us time. She was also very nice and accommodating and professional at the same time. She helped find our house with the specifications that we had in mind and when we put it on the market to rent it, it rented within 2 days!! She is an excellent negotiator and she is not too pushy. I would recommend Hala Adra in a heart beat for anybody who wants to buy, sell or rent real estate. She is excellent and she did a superb job for us . She was excellent and I give her 5 stars!!!" - Shiraz
"Incredible service from the first time we spoke. She was always willing to answer questions day or night, and she used her experience in the DC/MD/VA area to guide our home buying. We could not have been any happier!! She was with us every step of the way, even to the time of closing. Behind the scenes, she took the time to visit various homes at different times of the day to help us get a sense of direct sunlight. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for in the area. She always treated us like we were her only clients, and we will never forget all of her hard work to help us find the house of our dreams. " - Jon
