Ellen began her real estate career in 2006 with the largest real estate firm in the Capitol Region and quickly became a top-selling agent. Her passion for the industry was nurtured by years of experience in property acquisition and improvement. In 2015 Ellen was thrilled to join Washington Fine Properties, where she has consistently been recognized as a “Top Producer” by Washingtonian and Bethesda Magazines.
Ellen prides herself on the fact that the vast majority of her new clients originate from past client referrals–a powerful testament to her skill, dedication, and enthusiasm. Her professional expertise, paired with her knowledge of the communities she serves, gives Ellen that unique edge. A native Marylander and Bethesda-Chevy Chase resident for more than 30 years, Ellen raised four wonderful children in Montgomery County. She now resides with her husband in DC’s Glover Park neighborhood and enjoys the occasional getaway to the family vacation home in Delray Beach. As she has done with so many sellers and buyers over the past 16 years, Ellen welcomes the opportunity to show future clients that extra special care which has become her hallmark.

I have had the pleasure to work with Ellen on four different occasions: two as a buyer, two as a seller. She has the most perfect combination of professionalism and empathy that I've ever seen in a real estate agent. She takes your hand and leads you through seemingly impossible tasks, reaching out to every person involved with incredibly honest communication skills, showing her lengthy experience in the high-end market of the DMV area. She gets involved in every aspect:—from the staging process to showings, to negotiations, until the final closing—making you feel that you are her only client! She continually who will get the work done with a witty intuition and charm. Ellen is a real gem that will get the work done with down-to-earth finesse!”
Ellen is an outstanding agent to work with. She is a skilled listener and negotiator, with very in-depth knowledge of the local markets and industry. Ellen sold two of our properties, one during high Covid-19 concerns. At no point during those scary times did her dedication to selling the second property waiver, (safety practices were in place). That said, she was just as aggressive and committed to selling the second property as she was the first. We highly recommend her for any real estate transactions you may have.
We have worked with Ellen on four transactions, and she has been available to us every step of the way. Each question was handled in a gracious, knowledgeable manner.
Having had experience with other realtors during real estate business in other parts of the country, Ellen stands out as an exceptional agent. Others don’t hold a candle to her broad expertise. Always a pleasure to be with, she is positive, realistic, and made sure things happened to our advantage.
We wish we could take Ellen with us for future deals!
Ellen helped us to sell two of our houses and purchase a third. We found in her a trusted realtor who is totally devoted to serving the best interests of her clients. She is uniquely qualified with her first-hand knowledge of the market, keen sense for pricing, careful attention to detail, and wealth of resources to share. She amazed us with her untiring efforts and diligence at every step of the sales. Together with her charming personality and realistic optimism, Ellen is a delight to work with. We were lucky to have had her as our realtor.

We love Ellen Hatoum and consider ourselves very lucky to have met her and to have had her as our Realtor. She helped us land our dream home, and her devotion was tireless. A million thanks to Ellen—she's simply the best.
A colleague highly recommended Ellen to us for our new home search. She was patient, attentive, knowledgeable, and persistent in helping us find the best fit for our family. We also benefited from her expertise as our selling agent. She helped us prepare our home for sale, coordinating between different trades, and was careful and thoughtful when evaluating multiple offers with us. We truly believe we sold our home above listing price because of her. Thank you so much Ellen!
