The Ebby Halliday Companies has named Anthony Jackson vice president of finance. Chris Kelly, president and chief executive officer, recently made the announcement. The Ebby Halliday Companies includes Dallas-based Ebby Halliday Realtors and Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate and Fort Worth-based Williams Trew, as well as affiliated core-service companies Home Team Mortgage, Home Team Insurance and Texas Premier Title.
“Anthony brings a thorough understanding of accounting and all aspects of real estate,” says Kelly. “We couldn’t be more pleased that he has chosen to grow his career with us as we grow the Ebby Halliday brands together.”
Jackson joins the Ebby Halliday Companies from Guarantee Real Estate in Fresno, Calif., where he most recently served as vice president of finance. Born and raised in Sacramento, he graduated from California State University, Fresno with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, with an option in Accounting.
Jackson started working at Guarantee Real Estate as a college student, and his entire career, which has included a variety of professional positions, has been in the real estate business.
While he is a strong believer in technology, he is, at heart, a people person.
“I value people and relationships,” Jackson says. “You have to put people first but you can leverage technology and processes to add more value.”
Jackson says he has been fortunate to have been exposed to the accounting operations of several HomeServices of America companies, including Ebby Halliday.
“I understand that, at HomeServices, we are not cookie-cutter companies,” Jackson says. “Having had the opportunity to visit multiple HSoA companies has given me great insight that will help us move forward with our systems and processes.”
As someone who appreciates an active, balanced lifestyle, Jackson has several personal interests he pursues in his spare time. Among those are fishing, skiing, and spending time with family and friends.
“I am truly excited to join the Ebby Halliday Companies,” Jackson says. “I’m looking forward to continuing to build on the extraordinary success of one of the nation’s most-admired full-service residential real estate brokerages and working alongside Chief Financial Officer Ron Burgert and his accomplished team.”
