Jackson-Thomas to Lead Cedar Creek Lake Office

Natalie Jackson-Thomas Named Manager of Ebby’s Cedar Creek Lake Office


Ebby Halliday Realtors has appointed Natalie Jackson-Thomas sales manager of its Cedar Creek Lake Office. Chris Kelly, president and chief executive officer, recently made the announcement.


“Natalie brings a thorough understanding of all aspects of real estate, from marketing and lead generation to working effectively with clients through closing and beyond,” Kelly says. “Natalie truly appreciates the wide-ranging educational opportunities available to new and seasoned agents at the Ebby Halliday Companies.”


Jackson-Thomas will report to Malinda Howell, regional vice president and former co-manager of Ebby’s Cedar Creek Lake Office.


“Natalie joined Ebby’s Cedar Creek Lake Office as a sales associate because of our company’s stellar reputation, its exceptional training opportunities and the ongoing support we offer agents,” Howell says. “She believed Ebby Halliday was a place she could grow professionally and she has certainly done that. I am confident her background as an Ebby sales associate will benefit our Cedar Creek Lake Office in many ways.”


A longtime North Texan, Jackson-Thomas has been a Realtor since 2003 and a Cedar Creek Lake-area resident for the past three years. She enjoys the everyday challenges and celebrations that working in residential real estate brings.


“I love the variety involved in my real estate career,” Jackson-Thomas says. “One of the reasons I chose Ebby is the company’s appreciation for both new-agent education and continuing education for seasoned agents. I really look forward to helping our Cedar Creek Lake agents take their business to the next level.”


“Our clients are making one of the largest – if not the largest – purchases of their lifetime, so it’s imperative that we get to know them and develop strong working relationships,” she says. “I want our clients and agents to know that they can rely on me at all times.”


In her spare time, Jackson-Thomas enjoys exploring the Cedar Creek Lake area and spending time with family. She and her husband have four children and one grandchild.


“I am truly excited to lead the Cedar Creek Lake Office,” Jackson-Thomas adds. “I plan to build on our office’s extraordinary success by emphasizing the high standards of the Ebby brand as we continue to grow in the Cedar Creek Lake area and across North Texas.”

Architectural Tour Features Distinctive Dilbeck Residences


Architectural Tour Features Distinctive Dilbeck Residences

Ebby Halliday Realtors is proud to be a house sponsor of the 2018 Preservation Dallas Fall Architectural Tour, which offers a look inside seven of Charles Dilbeck’s most distinctive residential projects in Dallas. With everything from Dilbeck’s ubiquitous Ranch house, to French Norman estates, to his quirky storybook cottages, the lineup promises a day of magic. The tour, which takes place Saturday, October 27, will be a showcase of rarely seen Dilbeck homes – an opportunity you won’t want to miss.


Born in 1907, Charles Dilbeck worked at an early age in Tulsa creating and adapting plans for builders. His lumberyard architect experience directed him toward displays of rough and refined woods, and handcrafted details. Dilbeck took credit for designing the first Texas ranch house and while regional houses are typically attributed to David Williams and O’Neil Ford, Dilbeck was simultaneously designing these homes with fireplaces for screened-in porches, hand-carved mantels, hammered metal work, herringbone patterned plank ceilings, oversized fireplaces and floor plans to capture the southeastern breezes in the summer. Part of Dilbeck’s genius was to create equal volume regardless of the space … small rooms with soaring ceilings and large rooms with more traditional ceiling heights.


Architectural Tour Features Distinctive Dilbeck Residences

The day will begin at the Angelika Film Center with morning refreshments and an architectural discussion highlighting Dilbeck’s life and architectural style. A second-to-none team of Dilbeck aficionados has been assembled for all tour facets, including symposium speakers Willis Winters, FAIA, and Jann Patterson Mackey, PhD., who will discuss Dilbeck’s life and work throughout the region, and on the national stage. The entire day will be filled with quirk, romance and eccentricity.

Check in for the tour begins at 8:30 a.m. with refreshments. The symposium begins at 9 a.m., and tour houses are open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Attendees are required to check in at the Angelika Film Center. Reservations are required and non-refundable.



The general tour includes the symposium and five distinctive houses. Tickets are $40 for Preservation Dallas members and $50 for the public.


The patron-level tour includes access to an additional tour house plus an invitation to the patron party at the Walton House on Thursday, October 25, from 6 to 8 p.m. Patron-level tickets are $85 for Preservation Dallas members and $100 for the public.


Reservations are required and non-refundable.
