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 , and instantly knew it was her calling to help others find their place in the DC area just as she had found hers.

"Hala is exceptional at what she does. She has deep expertise, integrity, stellar relationships amongst her peers and only wanted the very best for my family&I. We were new to the area and looked at so many homes over a period of months in a complex and hot market, however, we always had the utmost confidence and solace in our agent. She went above and beyond countless times. We landed our dream home and she handled the process for us from a-z, we could not have done this without her and are so grateful for her tireless efforts and around the clock work ethic. She also led us to the very best attorney, home inspector and so on. A true professional whom we now consider a trusted a friend that we recommend to anyone & everyone who wants the best." - Omar B.

"Hala is a true professional. She worked with us on the sale of our home while simultaneously assisting us in identifying and closing on a new property. Through it all she helped us understand the process and market conditions while guiding us through all that is required for successful completion. I would highly recommend her and would surely work with her in the future." - Firas Maksad.
"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 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.

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
