Diane Hausler is the new sales leader of Ebby Halliday Realtors’ Plano Office. Chris Kelly, president and chief executive officer of the Ebby Halliday Companies, and Malinda Howell, vice president of brokerage, recently made the announcement. Hausler will also continue in her role as sales leader of Ebby’s Allen Office.
“We are thrilled Diane has accepted this additional responsibility and know she is absolutely the right person at the right time in just the right roles,” says Kelly. “She is the perfect person to succeed Kay Wright, who has been an incredible leader within our organization and a trusted friend and partner to all of us. Kay recently earned the National Association of Realtors’ Realtor Emeritus status and we are so grateful for her leadership over the years.”
Wright, who recently announced her intention to retire from the Plano sales leader position at the end of June, began her real estate career in 1977 and has led Ebby’s Plano Office for 18 years. In an interesting circle of events, Wright opened Ebby’s Allen Office while managing its Plano Office and Hausler was her office administrator in Plano before becoming sales leader of the Allen Office.
“Kay Wright was an amazing mentor and I’m looking forward to following in her footsteps,” says Hausler, who started as an Ebby agent in 2002 and has been the sales leader of the Allen Office for 10 years.
A servant leader, Hausler enjoys mentoring new and experienced agents and helping them grow their business.
“I always try to place myself in an agent’s position,” she says. “I am ever-mindful of their needs, the needs of our valued clients and the needs of our communities.”
With over 20 years of experience in real estate sales and leadership, Hausler is known for developing positive and supportive cultures. As a graduate of the Texas Realtor Leadership Program and a Broker associate, her goal is to provide the training and mentorship necessary to develop successful agents. She holds the National Association of Realtors’ At Home with Diversity designation, as well as the Accredited Buyer Representative and e-Pro designations.
Hausler, who has deep Texas roots, has been married to her husband for 38 years. The couple share three children and four grandchildren. When not working (which is not often), she enjoys traveling and spending time outdoors.
“I am honored and excited to take on this expanded leadership role,” Hausler adds. “I’m looking forward to continuing to build on our Plano office’s extraordinary success and growing our brand as Ebby Halliday celebrates 75 years of serving North Texas.”
