Happy Holidays!

At the holiday season, our thoughts turn gratefully to those who have made our progress possible – our clients and our agents. No matter how you choose to celebrate, we wish all of you the very, very best for today and the coming new year.

Happy Thanksgiving

We are thankful – that we may conduct our business in the Dallas-Fort Worth and North Texas area, possibly the most vibrant and dynamic real estate market in the nation.

 

We are thankful – for an opportunity to assist our neighbors, both those who are old friends and those new to the area.

 

We are grateful – to each and every one of our 1,700 sales associates and staff, our fellow professionals and valued partners in our success.

 

We are thankful – perhaps most of all, for our many clients who place us in their trust and confidence and offer us the opportunity to represent them in the purchase or sale of their homes.

 

We wish you all the very, very best for Thanksgiving and the upcoming holidays.

The Largest Relocation Team in North Texas


The Largest Relocation Team in North Texas

Individuals and companies who are relocating have access to a large amount of information. What they often don’t have is a way to tailor that information to their needs. That’s where the relocation experts at Ebby Halliday Realtors offer an invaluable service.

 

Ebby’s team of specialists – the largest such in-house team in North Texas – connects relocating consumers with a real estate agent who not only specializes in their area of interest, but also is knowledgeable about lifestyle issues affecting their move.

 

“Each client is unique and we work tirelessly to help them find just the right home, whether they are moving into or out of North Texas, and whether they are buying or leasing,” Corporate Real Estate Services Director Karen Greene says.

 

For outgoing clients, the relocation team coordinates their needs with another firm affiliated with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World. Membership in Leading Real Estate Companies of the World is by invitation only and is limited to the very best residential real estate companies worldwide.

 

“As the largest relocation team in North Texas, we offer an exhaustive list of services, but the bottom line, in the relocation business, is it all comes down to the agents – having the right people in the right place,” Greene says. “At Ebby Halliday, we have a remarkable group of agents who are ready to serve.”
