 Sonny Moyers Honored for Excellence

 

The Dallas Builders Association has named Ebby Frisco Associate Sonny Moyers the McSam Realtor of the Year. This prestigious award recognizes Moyers’ extraordinary contribution to the North Texas real estate market, particularly in the new-construction arena.

 

Moyers was one of only three finalists for the McSam Realtor of the Year category. He is a managing partner of the O’Dea Moyers Group, a five-person team that consistently ranks as one of the highest-producing teams at Ebby Halliday. Moyers has been named to the Ebby Halliday Honor Roll for 15 consecutive years.

 

“Sonny has been a true leader in our fast‐growing community,” Frisco Mayor Maher Maso said. “He has significantly impacted the arts in Frisco. Sonny has the ability to bring groups of people together for a common cause and empower and lead them to goals that truly make an impact. Sonny planted the seeds that Frisco needed to grow into the successful city it is today. He had the vision and ability to make a difference.”

 

Moyers is well-known for his exceptional service to clients, in-depth knowledge of the new-home construction process, and high sales volume with North Texas homebuilders. In 2014, he sold 55 homes with a sales volume exceeding $26 million. Half of those homes were new construction.

Frisco’s Held Wins Prestigious Award


post

 

At the recent Texas Association of Realtors Winter Meeting in Austin Ebby Frisco Associate Meredith Held was recognized for her determination and contribution to Texas real estate.

 

Held, who is a member of the Collin County Association of Realtors and a past president of the association, won the Government Affairs Strike Force Award for initiating the “Bury the Lines” campaign in Frisco. “Bury the Lines” is an effort to have overhead high-voltage transmission lines that are proposed to run along a large and primary street in Frisco, be buried underground.

 

In 2013, Meredith asked CCAR for its support in fighting the proposed lines. In 2014, Adam Majorie, CCAR’s Government Affairs Director, requested funds from the Issues Mobilization Political Action Committee and was successful in obtaining funds to print yard signs, have an informational posting on an electronic billboard in the area, secure a lobbyist, and hire a law firm to represent those who wish to testify before the Texas Public Utility Commission.

 

Due to her diligence and commitment to retain Frisco’s property values, Meredith was awarded. “I was extremely surprised and very honored to receive this recognition,” she says.

 

Meredith, thank you for your service to our industry and congratulations on a well-deserved honor!

America’s Fastest-Growing Suburb is …


The Fastest-Growing Suburb in America

 

Pop quiz: Name five of the fastest-growing suburban cities in the country.

 

Give yourself a point if you came up with Frisco, Texas. Add another if you named Carmel, Ind. Ditto for Sugar Land, Texas, South Jordan, Utah, and Franklin, Tenn.

 

Frisco, about 25 minutes north of Dallas, has been named one of the country’s best cities in which to live by both CNN and Forbes in the past five years. Many people — 136,000, at last count — agree, pushing the city’s growth rate from 2012-2013 to 6.5 percent, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Before then — from 2000-2010 — Frisco’s growth was an amazing 247 percent, taking the city from 33,714 residents to 116,989.

 

Maher Maso, the city’s mayor, says it’s all been part of a plan. “When I moved here in 1992, we had 6,000 people and one blinking yellow light — and not much else,” he remembers. “Our growth hasn’t been an overnight thing. We’ve planned for it.”

 

Tony Felker, president/CEO of the Frisco Chamber of Commerce agrees, “We’re aware and proud of the growth, but there’s a concerted effort to ensure the growth by itself isn’t the thing we’re most focused on. We want to make sure it’s smart, sustainable, and quality growth.” At Ebby Halliday Realtors, we’re appreciative of these very qualities. Simply put, we’re bullish on Frisco and all of North Texas.
