As we near the end of another year, we’d like to pause to reflect on the significance of 2015, the year that marked the passing of our company’s founder, Ebby Halliday.
Ebby was 104, but knowing her passing was imminent didn’t make it any easier. Throughout her life Ebby illuminated everything she touched, everything she said and everything she did. In the meantime, she brought light to each of our lives.
In the few months since she left us the spirit of her companies has been unwavering. Those of us fortunate enough to be part of the Ebby Halliday Companies have witnessed a sense of solidarity – a united front – that seems to run from the agent level right to the top. Simply put, the Ebby Halliday Companies are stronger than they have ever been.
The pride is palpable; it’s invigorating to be a part of Ebby’s legacy. And, truth be told, Ebby would be so proud of each and every one of us and how we’ve faired these past few months without her.
In 1945, Ebby Halliday founded her namesake company on three principles of service. As we enter 2016, that company is one the most-admired in America and more committed than ever to honor her legacy through exemplary service to our clients, our industry and the North Texas community.
