Incredible Global Property Exposure, Courtesy of Luxury Portfolio Fine Property Collection


Each month, Luxury Portfolio releases their web traffic statistics via their proprietary LuxeAnalytics reports and once again, the luxury listings of The Ebby Halliday Companies have received an abundance of national and international exposure. In fact, Ebby Halliday Realtors, Ellen Terry Realtors and Dave Perry-Miller & Associates are consistently in the Top 5 for members with the most web traffic on this award-winning site. Since the beginning of the year, our luxury homes have received almost 400,000 property impressions with visitors from 120 countries who have translated the property descriptions into almost a dozen languages.

To help put this accomplishment into perspective, here are some basic statistics for LuxuryPortfolio.com: the site averages 102,000 visitors per month and 1.2 million high-net-worth visitors per year. It also has the greatest overall market share of luxury properties, both nationally and globally, as well as more U.S. listings priced at $1 million and above than Christie s, Sotheby s, Coldwell Banker Previews, etc.

And be sure to check out the beautiful new home page design which debuted this past month. In fact, the remarkable Santa Barbara-style estate on White Rock Lake, listed by Brett Gray of Dave Perry-Miller & Associates, is one of the featured homes on the home page this month.

Bottom line – when you list a luxury property with an Ebby Halliday Company, you can be assured it will be marketed to the world through the best luxury afilliation around – Luxury Portfolio. How many other companies can claim that?

Earn Extra Income Through The Ebby Referral Associates Group


Referrals are a key part of the real estate business and placing referrals is an excellent way to earn extra income and offer a valuable service to friends, family, neighbors and business associates. The Ebby Referral Associates Group makes it possible for real estate licensees who are not actively working in the real estate profession to have an organization in which to hold their license and send referrals.

Associates of the Ebby Referral Group do not engage in the real estate transaction, they only send buyer or seller referrals to Ebby Halliday or through the firm’s affiliation with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, the nationwide broker-to-broker relocation network. The referral fee is 25% off the top of the total commission on the referred side. Here s an example:

$200,000 sale price x 3.00% = $6,000
Referral fee is 25% of $6,000 = $1,500
Referral Associate split is 80% of the 25% referral fee, or $1,200
Ebby Alumni Group, Inc. split is 20% of the referral fee, or $300

The Ebby Referral Associates Group is open to anyone holding a real estate license – not just past Ebby agents.

If you are interested in learning more about the group, or wish to join, please contact Alice Davis at 972-980-6671 or alicedavis@ebby.com.
