D CEO Features Ebby Execs

Ebby Halliday Companies President & CEO Mary Frances Burleson, who began working with founder Ebby Halliday when the business had just three offices and 35 agents, says she learned from the best. Executive Vice President & Director of Sales Offices Betty Misko feels the same way about Burleson.

 

At Ebby Halliday, we’re blessed with top talent throughout the executive ranks. Burleson and Misko are part of an executive dream team admired across Texas and far beyond.

 

In its May/June issue, D CEO magazine features Burleson and Misko in a compelling feature story on five high-profile Dallas CEOs and their “right hands.” Others included in the story are the Dallas Cowboys’ Jerry Jones and Rich Dalrymple, The Richards Group’s Stan Richards and Jean Howe, BP Capital’s T. Boone Pickens, Jay Rosser and Sally Geymuller, and Southwest Airlines’ Gary Kelly and Nan Berry.

 

From D CEO’s The Gatekeepers by Karen Nielsen:

 

There aren’t enough hours in the day for Mary Frances Burleson to personally manage the flurry of activity at the residential real estate empire of the Ebby Halliday Cos. With 2014 sales volume exceeding $6.6 billion, the president and CEO relies on Betty Misko, her friend, confidant, and vice president and director of sales offices. “Between the both of us we have 100 years in this business,” says Misko. “There’s a lot of experience we can draw on.”

 

The two think alike, often dress alike, are high-touch managers, and as pre-baby boomers share not only a generation but by-the-book values. “I trust her implicitly,” says Burleson, who has been in her position since 1989. “That’s important.”
