25-Year Pin Awarded to Ebby Family Members


25-Year Pin Awarded to Members of Ebby Family

 

One of the surest signs of a great company is longtime employees, or in our case, sales associates and staff members. The Ebby Halliday Companies are fortunate to have countless individuals who have been with our firm for many years and each year we take the time to honor those who have reached their 25th Anniversary with Ebby Halliday.

 

Recently, longtime members of the Ebby Halliday family received the 25-Year Pin at a luncheon at Fearing’s at the Ritz-Carlton Dallas honoring their significant contributions to the company. In addition to the honorees, this special event was attended by President and CEO Chris Kelly, Executive Vice President and Director of Sales Offices Betty Misko, Regional Vice Presidents Carolyn Rosson and Malinda Howell, Vice President and Director of Marketing Randall Graham and Chairman Emeritus Mary Frances Burleson.

 

Everyone enjoyed spending time together, reminiscing about their time with the company, and sharing favorite memories. “This special occasion reminds us that our company has longevity and that staff members and sales associates enjoy being here,” says Kelly. “It’s also a great reminder that we are quite a family of caring people.”

 

We extend a special thank you to the following Associates and staff members celebrating their 25th year:

New Cedar Creek Lake Office Celebrates Grand Opening

 

On October 11, Ebby Halliday Realtors hosted a Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting and celebratory barbecue lunch at its new Cedar Creek Lake Office, located at 314 W. Main St. in Gun Barrel City, Texas. The new office serves the residential real estate needs of the Cedar Creek Lake area, an approximately 1-hour drive from Dallas County.

“This new, approximately 3,000-square-foot office greatly enhances our ability to serve the needs of the area’s growing number of home buyers and sellers for many more years to come,” says Ron Burgert, chief financial officer of the Ebby Halliday Companies, which includes three real estate brands, as well as core-service companies Texas Premier TitleHome Team Insurance and Home Team Mortgage Company.

 

New Cedar Creek Lake Office Celebrates Grand Opening

Ebby’s Cedar Creek Lake Office is co-managed by respected industry veterans Malinda Brownlee Howell and Ginger Gill and will ultimately be “home” to approximately 20 Cedar Creek Lake-area residential real estate specialists.

“Our location on Main Street features a highly visible location and the latest in technology,” says Howell. “It offers an ideal setting for Associates and clients to meet to discuss residential real estate needs, whether that’s a primary home, a frequently visited second home or an occasional weekend retreat. The lake lifestyle is unique, and whether you are buying or selling, we have found the perfect setting from which to serve the entire Cedar Creek Lake area.”

“We are assisting clients with one of the most significant transactions of their lifetime,” says Gill. “It is important that we utilize all of the resources we have at our disposal so we can provide the absolute best experience for our valued clients.”

Gill adds that Cedar Creek Lake-area sellers who list with Ebby benefit from expanded exposure for their properties. In addition to being listed in the local MLS (NAVICA), Ebby Cedar Creek listings are also in NTREIS, the North Texas MLS. Simply put, Gill says, Ebby’s listings reach more potential buyers – in particular residents of the Dallas-Fort Worth area, who make up the majority of Cedar Creek Lake buyers.

Ebby’s new Cedar Creek Office is already “home” to a stellar team of experienced Cedar Creek Lake agents, according to Howell. “Buying or selling a lake home can be complicated,” she says. “We are thrilled to have launched our new Cedar Creek Lake Office with experienced local agents dedicated to outstanding service and exceeding clients’ expectations.”
