Doug Selzer Named Sales Leader of Lakewood | Lake Highlands Office


Doug Selzer has been named Sales Leader of Ebby Halliday Realtors’ Lakewood | Lake Highlands Office. Chris Kelly, president and chief executive officer of the Ebby Halliday Companies, and Malinda Howell, vice president of brokerage, recently made the announcement.

A member of the Ebby Halliday family since 2012, Selzer has served as an agent in the office he will be overseeing. He is an active member of the East Dallas community, has served as the East Dallas MLS Representative for MetroTex Association of Realtors and serves as both a mentor in the Ebby Lakewood | Lake Highlands office as well as an instructor for the Ebby EDGE (Education/Discipline/Growth/Excellence) orientation program. 

“Doug has earned a reputation not only as a top producer along with his wife Elizabeth, but someone that lives our People First mission in the way he treats his clients and other agents,” Kelly says. Adds Howell, “As a Dallas native and Lake Highlands resident, Doug has already invested so much of himself in the area. He will help ensure this office remains a vital real estate resource to the surrounding residents.”

Selzer succeeds Rene Barrera, a respected industry veteran who recently took the helm at Ebby’s 190 – Richardson Office after Malinda Howell stepped aside to focus solely on her role as vice president of brokerage of the Ebby Halliday Companies. 

Prior to real estate, Selzer had an extensive background in senior management and leadership within the banking and financial services sectors. This position, he feels, is a natural extension of his career path.

“I have a long history of sales, customer service and management,” he says. “The best part of every role has been helping people – whether it is helping a client buy or sell a house, or helping a new agent be successful in their real estate career.” 

Asked what he will bring to his new role, Selzer replies, “I am a collaborator. I want to work with new and experienced agents alike to share ideas – processes and procedures – that will make everyone better. I also see our office as a resource for the community. Of course, we want to help people buy or sell a house, but I also see us as being a go-to source of real estate information for those who live and work in the area.”

Selzer is a Certified Negotiation Expert and a Historic Home Specialist, in addition to a ‘D Best’ Real Estate Agent since 2018 and an Advocate ‘Top 25 Realtor’ since 2015. He is a graduate of Hampden-Sydney College with a degree in Economics and is married to Lakewood | Lake Highlands agent Elizabeth Selzer. They have two sons. Doug enjoys fishing, cooking and relaxing with friends.

Six Fresh Laundry Rooms


White laundry room

 

Laundry may not be glamorous, but everyone has it. Make the task less of a chore with a fabulous laundry room.

 

When designing a home, a laundry room can be a much-needed luxury, especially for larger families. Counter and hanging space is recommended for folding and drying clothes, and an ample storage area works best for those bulky detergent boxes.

 

To make even more use of the space, why not add a workspace in the room for a secluded office? Or place your laundry room within the closet?

 

Whatever the use of your laundry room, make sure it’s just as stylish as it is functional. Here are six pristine examples from our listings.

Discover the Difference a Realtor Makes


Home Sweet Home Welcome Mat, Moving Boxes, Women and Male Shoes and Plant on Hard Wood Floors.

 

The North Texas region’s attractive quality of life, strong economy and low cost of living ensure D-FW will continue its steady rise to prominence among the world’s leading metropolitan areas in 2019. If you want to join in on the fun as a North Texas home buyer or seller, now is the time to start looking for a Realtor.

 

This process is different for everyone, but below are a few things to keep in mind:

 

Experience – Look to agents who have put time into their career and the neighborhoods in which they work. This can mean different things, like trusting someone who has spent years in the business or someone who grew up in the area.

 

Personality and interests – Try to do some background work on a potential agent. Many have bio pages, LinkedIn accounts, social media pages, and online reviews. All of these can be helpful, but remember that not having one or the other doesn’t have a direct correlation to how “good” a Realtor is.

 

Career type – Is being a Realtor the person’s full-time career? If you’re on a time schedule, you’ll want to pick someone who’s in the industry full-time.

 

The numbers – If you’re a buyer, don’t choose an agent just because their commission is lower. If you’re a seller, don’t choose them just because they agree with you on how much your home should be listed for. We’ll say two things to justify these points – you get what you pay for, and, in real estate, there’s no telling how much your home will really and truly sell for at the end of the day.

 

Age – Don’t dismiss an agent based on their age, young or old. What makes an agent the right fit for you is not often their age, but their love of their profession, dedication to you, and the points listed above.

 

Need a good place to start looking? Check out our office locations and search all of our wonderful Realtors at Ebby Halliday Realtors, the No. 1 real estate company in Texas by sales volume.

Different people consume media in different ways.

 

At Ebby Halliday Realtors – the No. 1 independent residential real estate firm in Texas by sales volume – we’re proud to have a talented team of marketing, advertising and public relations experts who believe strongly in this principle, and we’re equally proud to support our agents and their marketing efforts in a broad range of media.

 

“Simply put, Ebby agents and their listings enjoy unmatched marketing resources,” says Randall Graham, vice president and director of marketing.

 

The department Graham leads is housed in the new, 15,000-square-foot Ebby Halliday Education and Marketing Center, and includes seasoned full-time marketing, advertising and public relations experts, graphic artists and designers, writers and editors, digital specialists, and a videographer.

 

In addition to time-tested, traditional marketing efforts, Ebby agents and their listings benefit from robust social media content, including frequent blog, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, Google+ and Twitter posts. Ebby’s Facebook page has gained more than 17,000 followers and the Ebby Blog is one of the most popular real estate blogs in Texas.

 

Ebby.com is one of the most-visited residential real estate sites in America. Offering a responsive, mobile-first approach, the site was built with mobility in mind. Among its features are real-time property alerts, allowing users to be the first to know when properties become available. In addition, each home listed with Ebby Halliday benefits from its own, free Individual Property Website.  Ebby agents also enjoy branded websites, which harness the power of ebby.com, yet offer many options for agent customization.

 

Many North Texans are aware that the award-winning ebby.com offers state-of-the-art features for buying or selling a home, but did you know it’s also one of the area’s best sources for information well beyond homes and housing?

 

The Ebby Blog offers such categories as DFW Daily, profiling events in the D-FW area; Fabulous Finds, highlighting great homes available in North Texas; and Helpful Hints, offering everything from insight on the latest paint colors to apps that help around the house.

 

Named the Best Real Estate App in America by the Web Marketing Association, the Ebby Halliday Realtors app provides information in a natural way – starting with a map, not a menu. Featuring the latest in augmented reality, it’s perfect for buyers on the go.

 

“While we offer a plethora of innovative marketing and advertising for our agents and their listings, we firmly believe that in real estate it all comes down to agents,” Graham says. “And Ebby Halliday Realtors has a remarkable group of agents who are ready to serve.”
