Jason Bell Named Sales Leader of Ebby’s Flower Mound/Lewisville Office


Jason Bell has been named sales leader of Ebby Halliday Realtors’ Flower Mound/Lewisville OfficeChris Kelly, president and chief executive officer of the Ebby Halliday Companies, and Carolyn Rosson, vice president of brokerage, recently made the announcement.

Formerly an agent with Ebby’s Plano/Willow Bend Office, Bell was most recently the Agent Development Director in that office and the company’s Preston Plano Parkway Office

“Jason joined Ebby Halliday in 2016 and has built a successful real estate practice by consistently going above and beyond for clients,” Kelly says. Adds Rosson, “Jason has also been an effective mentor for many of our agents. He has a thoughtful communication style that makes him very relatable to the agents he serves.”

Bell succeeds Becky Garrison as sales leader of Ebby’s Flower Mound/Lewisville Office. Garrison has chosen to return to being a full-time agent in the office Bell will lead.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as sales leader of this office, working with some of the best agents in the business,” Garrison says. “I have missed, however, the everyday interaction with clients in real estate sales and want to return to that side of the business. I believe that Jason is just the right person for this job. He brings new energy and ideas and is great with education, technology and social media. Jason and I have worked together for some time now to ensure that this leadership transition will be a smooth one and that this will be a very positive experience for our Flower Mound/Lewisville agents.” 

Before embarking on his real estate career, Bell worked in the life and health insurance industries for 15 years. He holds the Graduate, Realtor Institute and Pricing Strategy Advisor designations.

“I’ve always enjoyed teaching, mentoring and coaching,” Bell says. “I feel like it’s what I’ve been called to do. I’m super excited about my new role as sales leader of Ebby’s Flower Mound/Lewisville Office.

“I strongly believe that my way is not the only way,” Bell adds. “I’m more interested in learning about what an agent is comfortable doing and then helping them maximize the opportunities.” 

Born in Dallas and raised in the Lake Highlands area, Bell is a graduate of Texas Tech University. He and his wife Amy have three children and enjoy spending time boating, fishing, golfing and watching their children play sports.

Does Curb Appeal Really Matter?


Fall is here and buyers are out and about discovering homes for sale across North Texas. Not surprisingly, properties with the best “curb appeal” attract the most attention.

 

^4 Westchester Court, Heath

 

“If you’re considering listing your home for sale, your property’s curb appeal should be top of mind,” says Stacey Zimmerman, a sales associate with Ebby’s Preston Plano Parkway Office. “Buyers often pass quick judgment on a property based on its drive-up appeal. A small investment in time and money to spruce up your property’s exterior appearance will likely mean fewer days on the market and a higher sales price.”

 

Below are a few areas in particular on which you should focus:

*  For a burst of color, plant fall flowers.

*  Tidy up your gardens.

*  Remove glass from light fixtures around your home’s front door and clean thoroughly.

*  Wash down your front door. If the sun has faded the paint, consider repainting.

*  Clean and polish your front door’s hardware. Replace it if necessary.

*  Check your house numbers. Are they still in good shape and visible from the street? If not, replace them.

*  Wash the windows. If this isn’t your strong suit, hire a professional.

*  Check your roof to make sure no shingles are missing or are damaged.

*  Remove debris from your gutters and drain spouts.

*  Clean your patio furniture. You want potential buyers to be able to visualize your outdoor living area’s potential.

 

So, just how does one “define” curb appeal? Simply put, you’ll know it when you see it. Check out these Ebby listings that offer it in spades!
