New Lakewood | Lake Highlands Office Offers One Door to Real Estate Services


On October 22, Ebby Halliday Realtors celebrated the opening of its beautiful new Lakewood | Lake Highlands Office at 6465 E. Mockingbird Lane, Suite 450.

“Located in the same shopping center, Hillside Village, as Ebby’s original Lakewood | Lake Highlands Office, this contemporary new office is built for the future,” says Chris Kelly, president and CEO of the Ebby Halliday Companies. “It offers an exceptional East Dallas location and is a statement of our commitment to serving this popular area – and well beyond – for years to come.”

Ebby’s Lakewood | Lake Highlands team is now enjoying a spacious, contemporary environment that includes cutting-edge technology, larger conference rooms and well-appointed meeting areas.

“This new space offers a sophisticated atmosphere and the latest technology in a much-sought-after East Dallas location with amazing new restaurants and retail space,” says René Barrera, sales leader of Ebby’s Lakewood | Lake Highlands Office. “Our sleek new interior is matched by a newly renovated exterior. We’re thrilled with the way they turned out and can’t wait to share our new space with our agents and valued clients.”

Lakewood | Lake Highlands Office will accommodate approximately 100 agents. It offers “one-door” access to everything you need to buy or sell a home, including brokerage, mortgage, title and insurance homeownership services, ensuring the easiest and most secure real estate experience available, Barrera says. 

“We’re proud of our commitment to this unique, extraordinary part of North Texas,” says Barrera. “And , we look forward to serving current and future residents in the manner they have come to expect from Ebby agents for many years to come.”

Throughout 2020, the Ebby Halliday Companies are celebrating 75 years of serving the real estate needs of North Texans and those relocating to the region. It all began in 1945, when one bold woman parlayed her wisdom, generosity, business acumen and endurance into what is today the No. 1 residential real estate brokerage in Texas. The legacy of Ebby Halliday is now amplified by the company’s affiliation with HomeServices of America, a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate and the country’s No. 1 residential real estate company.

Add Beauty & Value to Your Home

25 Braewood Place | $6,750,000 | The O’Gorman Group

 

Trees don’t ask for much — dirt, water, sunlight. Yet they provide many benefits for you and your home: They add beauty and value to your property, cut your energy bills with the shade they provide, serve as a home to wildlife, and improve the air you breathe.

 

2_Waller

10121 Waller Drive | $5,950,000 | Mary Poss

 

To get the full benefits from your trees, choose the right one and plant it in the right location. Planting a tree that sheds its leaves annually on the west side of your house provides cooling shade in the summer. In winter, after it loses its leaves, the same tree will let in sunlight that cuts heating bills.

 

3_Point de Vue

1901 Point De Vue Drive | $2,900,000 | The O’Toole LeVan Group

 

If you’re planting a new tree, think about its fully grown size and shape before you dig. Roots too close to your home could damage the foundation or block sewer lines. The wrong tree in the wrong place could actually lower your home’s appraised value.

Prep Your Fireplace for Winter


cozy fireplace

 

Cooler weather is here and it’s time to get your fireplace roaring again. Before you fill your home with the warmth and scent of a crackling fire, there are some precautions to take.

 

Check the Chimney — Have you called a chimney sweep recently? Experts recommend having your chimney cleaned once a year. A fireplace is only as good as its chimney, so inspect the exterior structure to make sure there are no issues.

 

Open the Flue — Ever started a fire and had the room fill with smoke? If you’re new to fireplaces, you may not realize that this happens when the flue is closed. Simply look up and reach for a chain or lever to open it up before you light the fire.

 

Vacuum — A quick vacuuming of the flue, smoke shelf and the surrounding hearth is the last step in preparation for fabulous fires in the coming months.

 

If you’re going to be without a fireplace this winter, we have plenty of homes that could have you curling up by the fire in no time. Below are a few. To see all of our incredible homes for sale, visit the award-winning ebby.com.
