The Dallas-Fort Worth area ranked among the strongest metro economies in the nation during the last part of 2009. This is according to a study by the Brookings Institution. Check out the full article in the Dallas Morning News. Good news for the entire North Texas area.
Ebby Halliday was featured throughout the media during her recent 99th birthday celebration. Here is recent video from WFAA-TV Ch. 8.
Advertising Associates were treated to a sneak peek of the premiere issue the week before at an exclusive preview party hosted by Cole Haan and Highland Park Village. In addition to having the first look at the magazine, guests also enjoyed drinks and hors d’oeuvres by Invite Events & Culinary and a special discount from Cole Haan for purchases made that evening.
The party also served as an impromptu networking event and there were two recurring themes in the evening’s conversation – everyone loved Grand Vie and everyone is busy. We heard numerous stories of incredible luxury homes that are about to hit the market, as well as current luxury listings that are under contract. Needless to say, it sounds like it’s going to be a nice spring market.
