Spring means many things to many people, but one thing it means to those of us who love homes is it’s time for home tours. At Ebby Halliday Realtors, we’re proud to be the presenting sponsor of the 26th Annual Hollywood Home Tour, which takes place the weekend of April 28-30.

Hollywood/Santa Monica, with approximately 750 homes, was mostly built in the 1930s. It stands between the Santa Fe Trail to the west and north, East Grand Avenue to the east and Valencia Street to the south. The neighborhood is a conservation district and has one of the largest collections of stone-embellished Tudor homes in the nation. Hollywood/Santa Monica’s location makes it close to many things, including downtown Dallas, yet it offers an unusually peaceful setting of rolling hills and tree-lined streets – a sort of city within the city.

East Dallas Is …

East Dallas Is …


“We want people to see the pride from inside out.”


That’s the way Darlene Ellison – a lifelong resident of East Dallas and a longtime leader in the community – describes the organic community project known as “East Dallas Is …”


Even though the project’s Big Reveal isn’t happening until Monday, the phrase East Dallas Is … has been making the rounds on social media for a while now as the excitement builds as to just what the announcement might be.


The grassroots effort is a partnership between the Greater East Dallas Chamber of Commerce, White Rock Partnership, neighborhood organizations across East Dallas and several neighborhood associations.


“In planning for the future of East Dallas, we believe that drawing recognition toward the area will not only bring greater traffic to local businesses, but it will also assist with enhancing our top-notch schools, maintaining strong property values, and bring an increased awareness of our eclectic, diverse community,” says Ellison.


At Ebby Halliday Realtors, we’re proud of our deep East Dallas roots and equally proud to be the only real estate company sponsor of East Dallas Is … When our founder, Ebby Halliday, first arrived in Dallas she lived in an East Dallas boarding house. Today, East Dallas is home to our Ebby’s Lakewood and White Rock/Lake Highlands offices and the Ebby House at Juliette Fowler Communities, an innovative transitional community for young women who have aged out of foster care. We’re thrilled with the good work that is being done at The Ebby House, and we’re very happy to be a part of it.


East Dallas is many things to many people: unique, special, beautiful, community-oriented, nationally recognized, and just plain neighborly, among them. To us, East Dallas Is … Ebby.


We love East Dallas and can’t wait for the Big Reveal on social media Monday. For now, follow this organic community project on Facebook and Instagram and submit your own photos or phrases that fill in the blank after East Dallas Is …

Sherryl Wesson Honored for Service


Sherryl Wesson, sales manager of Ebby’s Lakewood Office, was recently presented the Chairman’s Award by the Greater East Dallas Chamber of Commerce. The award is given annually to a company and/or individual who has made outstanding contributions to the community and the chamber. It was presented by U.S. Congressman Jeb Hensarling.


“It’s such an honor to be recognized for doing something I really love,” Wesson says. “I have been involved with the chamber since the 1980s, and am just as passionate today as I was then about economic development in East Dallas.”


Ms. Wesson currently serves on the chamber’s Board of Directors and is chair of the Economic Development Committee. She was chairman of the board in 1996.
