Local Experts With Global Reach


Local Experts With Global Reach

 

Ebby Halliday Realtors and its sales associates possess a unique understanding of the global real estate market. This understanding is a result of our affiliation with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, a network of premier real estate brokers in nearly 50 countries, and its luxury division, Luxury Portfolio International.

 

When marketing a luxury home such as the stunning clean-lined new construction at 8819 Lakemont in one of the most sought-after pockets in the area, Ebby agents tap the network of Luxury Portfolio International members and utilize its website, LuxuryPortfolio.com, to expose listings to buyers across the globe.

 

By showcasing luxury listings on LuxuryPortfolio.com, Ebby agents leverage the strength of a website that consistently ranks at the top of Google search results and has more $1 million-plus properties than any other luxury real estate network.

 

The beautiful custom home at 8819 Lakemont is one of many Ebby listings that receive extensive marketing exposure through Luxury Portfolio International. This extraordinary property, offered for $2,500,000, is listed with Michelle Hopson. Let’s take a closer look.

Trees Add Beauty, Value to Your Home


Trees Add Beauty, Value to Your Home

 

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, provide a home to wildlife, and improve the air you breathe.

 

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.

 

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.

 

To learn more about trees and how you can improve the environment while improving your property value, visit arbordayfoundation.org, where you’ll find a wealth of useful information about trees.

With the growing impact of people on the environment, any company that finds a more sustainable approach can be labeled pioneers. Zuri Bikes has done just that by crafting first-class bikes out of bamboo. But more importantly, the company is creating jobs in Zambia by growing its bamboo there and focusing on local frame production with healthy work conditions. Each bike is then assembled in Germany.   ZuriBikes.de
