Ebby Halliday Companies Launch Initiative to Serve Hispanic Community


The Ebby Halliday Companies, Texas’ leading residential real estate services company, is launching an initiative to serve the growing Hispanic community in North Texas. This initiative stems from the Ebby Halliday Companies’ ongoing commitment to serve, reflect, and grow with North Texas.

“Homeownership is a fundamentally important and rewarding experience,” says President & CEO of the Ebby Halliday Companies Chris Kelly. “At the Ebby Halliday Companies, we are committed to serving all members of the communities in which we operate, not only through assisting them with the home buying and selling process but also through education on how to become a homeowner and how to protect their home and its value. We recognize the complexity of this industry and understand the importance for Hispanics to connect and be accurately informed in their language of preference.”

Leading Ebby’s initiative is Community Affairs Director Fabián Gayosso, who is supported by the company’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Officers Sylvia Sotelo Kidd, Pamela Young and Sherry Adams. Born and raised in Mexico City, Gayosso earned a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations and his professional experience includes working at two Consulates of Mexico in the United States and at a marketing firm that focuses on the Latin market. He specializes in strengthening community partnerships and building strategic alliances to develop, implement and promote programs and strategies aimed to improve the living standards of the communities.

“With a team of bilingual agents that speak our language (Spanish) and breathe our culture, the Ebby Halliday Companies are ready to guide Latinos to a rewarding experience, help them reach their goals and get them to the place we all want to be: home,” Gayosso says. “As an immigrant myself, I understand the challenges that people, regardless of their cultural, religious or socio-economic backgrounds, face outside their homeland. I am thrilled to lead this initiative at Ebby Halliday to strengthen the communities we serve.”

Although the focus will initially be on the local Hispanic community, this foundation will allow Ebby to better reflect the company’s current and evolving community within its agent population, leadership and client base.

“We realize our business is based on relationships and that every individual interaction makes a difference,” says Gayosso. “We are committed to being a trusted resource for both our agents and the community and to ensuring exceptional service and a transparent process.”

Chris Kelly Named Most-Admired CEO by Dallas Business Journal


After a two-year absence, the Dallas Business Journal has announced the third class of its Most Admired CEO Awards. Ebby Halliday Companies President & CEO Chris Kelly was named among this group of prominent North Texas leaders.

A highly visible and accessible leader, Kelly produces weekly companywide update videos himself, visits multiple offices a week, makes time to meet with staff and agents upon request, attends office socials, company functions and industry conferences, serves on panels, grants interviews with local and national media … in other words, his level of productivity and engagement is highly inspiring to all who serve alongside and under him. He is also quite active on social media, managing his own accounts, interacting with others and championing the Ebby Halliday Companies three real estate brands and its mortgage, title and insurance brands. 

“This past year was one of incredible growth and strategic expansion and I couldn’t be any prouder of our agents and employees,” says Kelly. “This award is a testament to the commitment and hard work of our approximately 2,000 agents and 400 employees who day in and day out deliver an exceptional real estate experience to our valued clients.”

Kelly joined the Ebby Halliday Companies four years ago with a great measure of respect for all he had already accomplished, and it has only grown as staff and agents have gotten to know him and observe the impact he is making both for the company, the industry and the community.

Kelly and his leadership team’s continued expansion efforts into new markets have solidified the company’s ability to take advantage of ongoing migration into the state of Texas as well as the internal migration that is happening within the state among various markets. He has guided growth in new markets, including East Texas, Forney, Stephenville, Tyler, Cedar Creek Lake and Oklahoma, through the acquisition of other brokerages and by opening new offices, which has resulted in agent growth of over 10%.  Under his leadership, the company has also increased and expanded its mortgage, title, insurance and property management services. 

Kelly is actively involved in the North Texas community, including serving on the board of the Dallas Regional Chamber and as Chairperson of the Talent Attraction Committee for the Dallas Regional Chamber.

The Dallas Business Journal’s 2022 Most Admired CEOs will be honored at an event on June 16 and featured in a special publication in print and online in the Dallas Business Journal on June 24.
