North Texas Market Sizzles this Summer


Colorful inflatable toys floating in a pool

 

While it’s been warm (well, actually quite hot) in North Texas, summer “officially” begins tomorrow. With sales prices up and not a large number of homes for sale, this summer offers homeowners ideal conditions to sell a home in Dallas-Fort Worth. Competition among buyers is heated and multiple offers are common.

 

Just how hot is the North Texas housing market? Consider this:

 

* The average days a home is on the market is only 47 days.

 

*  The median sales price is up 3.4%.

 

*  The number of homes sold is up 2.7%.

 

If you’re considering listing your home, this summer offers a great opportunity. To get started, discover just the right agent for your residential real estate needs at the award-winning, mobile-friendly ebby.com.

Perfect Pools for Summer


Ready to make a splash? Summer officially begins Friday, and there’s no better way to refresh than by taking a dip in your own backyard.

 

Whether you’re hosting a pool party or low-key lounging, these homes feature some of the most stunning pools in North Texas.

HomeServices CEO Visits Ebby Halliday Companies


 

HomeServices CEO Visits Ebby Halliday Companies

 

This week it was our honor at the Ebby Halliday Companies to host HomeServices of America CEO Gino Blefari. Gino met with Top Producers, leaders and employees from throughout the company during his Texas visit. He also shared words of wisdom gained during his remarkable career and his excitement about all the extraordinary things happening at HomeServices of America and the Ebby Halliday Companies.

 

Blefari has been CEO of HomeServices of America since January 2019. Prior to that he served as chief executive officer of HSF Affiliates. He is the founder of Intero Real Estate Services, based in California’s Silicon Valley, and served as its president and chief executive officer.

 

Blefari began his real estate career in 1982 and for the next 14 years was a top-producing agent averaging 61 homes sold per year. During this time, he not only excelled as a salesperson, but also as a manager and then chief operating officer of Intero. By 2000, he had the top five offices and seven of the top 11 offices within Century 21’s 6,300 worldwide offices.

 

In 2001, he became a senior vice president of NRT, where he began working on a national level. He has more than 25 years of experience in real estate sales, development and management, from local to national operations.

 

In 2014, Blefari was inducted into the Mike Ferry Organization’s Hall of Fame. Out of 5,000 mentors across the country, he was presented with the Mentor of the Year Award in 2012 by The Buffini Company. Additionally, he was honored with RISMedia’s National Homeownership Award for “outstanding achievements among residential real estate’s most influential and charismatic leaders.”

 

At the Ebby Halliday Companies and HomeServices of America we are blessed with extraordinary servant leaders. Thank you, Gino, for your visit to the Ebby Halliday Companies this week – we share in your excitement about our future together!
