Mark Your Calendar for the Hollywood Home Tour



 

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 a sponsor of the 27th-Annual Hollywood Home Tour, which takes place the weekend of April 21-22.

6915 Santa Monica

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.

Tickets for the tour are available at hsmna.org, Curiosities at 2025 Abrams Road, and at tour homes on both days of the home tour.

Do Something for Someone Every Day


Do Something for Someone Every Day

 

One of the great passions of Ebby Halliday Acers’ life was service to the community she proudly called home. Ebby, who founded Ebby Halliday Realtors in 1945 and passed away last year, left an extraordinary legacy of philanthropy to her adopted community of North Texas.

 

While Ebby helped thousands of people during her lifetime, she had a special place in her heart for young people. Ebby did not have children of her own, but she helped educate and support many children, teenagers and young adults.

 

In an effort to further our founder’s impact on North Texas, Ebby Halliday Realtors’ Corporate Office “adopted” students at Ebby’s namesake school in southern Dallas, Ebby Halliday Elementary, to ensure they have gifts of their own this holiday season.

 

Mary Frances Burleson, president and CEO of Ebby Halliday Realtors, remarked, “Each of us who had the good fortune of knowing Ebby was touched by the grace, fortitude and compassion with which she lived her life. Ebby had a very simple saying that she lived by, ‘Do something for someone every day.’ As we reflect on 2016 and look forward to 2017, we’re more committed than ever to honor Ebby’s extraordinary legacy through exemplary service to our clients, industry and community.”

Ebby’s Frisco Office recently hosted its Eighth-Annual Charity Golf Tournament. One-hundred percent of the proceeds, which totaled more than $76,000, will benefit Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Frisco. Recognizing the growing need, Scottish Rite is building a new ambulatory care center in Frisco, at the corner of Lebanon Road and the Dallas North Tollway.

 

This year’s charity tournament and after-party were held at Frisco’s prestigious Stonebriar Country Club. The event has grown over the years, from 50 golfers to this year’s 132 golfers and more than 265 attendees at the awards dinner and silent auction.

 

Stonebriar is one of the finest private country clubs in Texas and we were thrilled they once again hosted our charity tournament. Everyone had a great time benefitting a great cause. Their efforts remind us all of what’s truly important.

 

Today, at the Frisco Office’s annual Thanksgiving luncheon, Macaluso and our wonderful Frisco Associates presented Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children with a check for $76,145. Congratulations to everyone involved in this extraordinary effort!

Tom Landry Classic Kicks Off


Tom Landry Classic Kicks Off

 

After legendary Dallas Cowboys Head Coach Tom Landry’s passing in 2000, the Tom Landry Classic was created to honor his legacy. For 16 years now, “the Classic” has had strong ties to Dallas-Fort Worth-area high school football programs and awarded scholarships to the schools’ student-athletes. Ebby Halliday Realtors is very proud to be a return sponsor of the Tom Landry Classic.

 

This year’s event hosts the Allen Eagles vs. the Hoover, Alabama Buccaneers on Friday, August 26, at 7:30 p.m. at Allen’s Eagle Stadium. The following day, Saturday, August 27, at 7 p.m., Lovejoy takes on Argyle. As is often the case, the North Texas communities involved in the games are all served by Ebby Halliday.

 

“Ebby Halliday Realtors was founded on three principles of service: service to our clients, service to our industry and service to our community,” says Mary Frances Burleson, president and CEO of Ebby Halliday. “We are very proud to be a part of an organization that places service to others at the forefront of everything we do.”

 

Tickets to the Tom Landry Classic, available at participating schools, are $6 for students and $8 for adults the week of the game. Tickets are $10 on game day.
