Mary Frances Burleson, president & CEO of the Ebby Halliday Companies, was just named one of the 100 Most Influential Real Estate Executives by Real Estate Executive Magazine.
The award recognizes and celebrates the service, dedication and hard work Mary Frances has put in while she and our extraordinary team of Associates and staff have built the Ebby Halliday Companies into one of the premier real estate brokerages in America.
Ms. Burleson, who has also received the National Association of Realtors’ Distinguished Service Award and the Distinguished Alumni Award from the Highland Park Independent School District, says “Ebby Halliday Realtors was founded on three principles of service: service to the client, service to the industry and service to the community. I am extremely proud to be a part of an organization that places service to others at the forefront of everything we do.”
With more than $6.4 billion in sales in 2013, Ebby Halliday is the No. 1 independently owned residential real estate company in Texas and No. 9 in America, according to REAL Trends, Inc.
As the holiday shopping season kicks off in earnest, Ebby’s Frisco Office will host “Chelsea Santas for City House!” This prime seasonal shopping opportunity takes place November 5-6 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and features the works of internationally renowned artist Chelsea Fair.
A resident of Frisco, Fair has been handcrafting Old World-style Santa Clauses and his different facades in her workshop for more than 20 years. Today those handcrafted Kriss Kringles can be found on the shelves at Neiman Marcus stores, in the White House and in the homes of celebrities nationwide.
Fair enjoys humanizing her Santas by creating different personas, including a cowboy, a golfer and one of the top sellers, Pancho Navidad. Each one of Santa’s costumes is made by hand and sewn out of faux furs and velvet.
Chelsea Santas for CityHouse! takes place at Ebby’s Frisco Office at 1415 Legacy Drive, Suite 100, and offers very attractive discount pricing. A portion of the proceeds benefit the nonprofit City House, which provides emergency shelter and transitional residential services to children and young adults who are in need due to abuse, neglect or homelessness.
