At its annual Power Broker Dinner held in conjunction with the National Association of Realtors Conference & Expo, RISMedia honored Ebby Halliday Companies President & CEO Mary Frances Burleson with its National Homeownership Award. The award was presented by Tim Owens, retail sales executive for Bank of America Home Loans, the award’s sponsor, on November 7 in New Orleans.
The National Homeownership Award is given to a member of the real estate community who continuously demonstrates extraordinary contributions toward increasing homeownership and building better communities. Mary Frances Burleson embodies those qualities and more, Owens noted.
“Mary Frances is a true industry icon who has devoted decades of service to this industry,” Owens said while presenting her the award.
“I am honored to be recognized with RISMedia’s National Homeownership Award,” says Burleson. “I have been fortunate to serve a company founded by the legendary Ebby Halliday, whose impact on the residential real estate industry is unmatched. Our Associates, who seek every day to follow Ebby’s example of service, are the basis of our company’s success.”
Congratulations Mary Frances on a well-deserved honor. Your service to our industry makes all of us at the Ebby Halliday Companies very proud.
