In addition to the exposure they receive in Grand Vie, Ebby Halliday Companies’ luxury listings benefit from extensive national and international exposure provided by luxury marketing partner Luxury Portfolio International and its website luxuryportfolio.com, one of the most-visited luxury home sites in the world.

 

“The more than 200 firms that comprise Luxury Portfolio are some of the most powerful brokerages worldwide,” says Graham. “This prestigious network represents more $1 million-plus properties than any other luxury real estate network and provides strong connections to well-respected firms worldwide. Simply put, we’re ideally positioned to assist with your next luxury home sale or purchase.”
