Ebby Halliday Realtors officially broke ground on its new Allen Office yesterday morning. Members from throughout the Ebby Halliday Family of Companies, community leaders and local officials gathered at the site of the new office — at the southeast corner of State Highway 121 and Watters Road — for the groundbreaking ceremony.
“This state-of-the-art office will greatly enhance our ability to serve the needs of the area’s growing number of home buyers and sellers for many more years to come,” says Mary Frances Burleson, president and CEO of the Ebby Halliday Companies, which includes Ebby Halliday Realtors, Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate and Williams Trew Real Estate, as well as affiliated companies Texas Premier Title, Home Team Insurance and Home Team Mortgage Company.
The new 10,500-square-foot stand-alone building, designed by architect Michael Twichell, whose work includes The Shops at Legacy in Plano and the Angelika Film Center in Dallas, will replace the company’s current Allen office, which opened in 2006. Near the intersection of State Highway 121 and U.S. Highway 75, Ebby’s new Allen office will offer a highly visible location and the latest in technology. A “one-stop residential real estate shop,” it will also offer title, mortgage and insurance services.
“The location of our new office is phenomenal,” says Diane Hausler, who has served as sales manager of Ebby Halliday Realtors’ Allen Office since 2010. “It is ideally situated near the thriving StarCreek development and offers easy access to the entire 121 Corridor.”
The new Ebby Allen Office will feature collaboration centers where Associates and clients may meet to discuss residential real estate needs. Cutting-edge technology, including Apple TVs, will help the office’s Associates assist buyers with their home searches and sellers with their understanding of current local market trends.
“We are assisting clients with one of the most-expensive and important transactions of their lifetime,” says Hausler, who has been with Ebby Halliday since 2002. “It is important that we utilize all of the resources that we can to best serve their needs.”
Hausler says the new Allen Office will offer area residents, those who may be considering calling Allen and the surrounding area their new home and top-producing real estate agents an opportunity to be a part of something special. The Allen Office of Ebby Halliday Realtors, currently home to 65 high-producing agents, serves all of the 121 Corridor. The new office will accommodate approximately 100 agents.
“Our new office will be a gathering place where people can learn about the area, all it has to offer, and why we love Allen so much,” Hausler says. “We’re invested in the 121 Corridor and look forward to serving area residents – and those just arriving here – for many years to come.”
