Our People are the Difference


Our People are the Difference

Many things make Ebby Halliday Realtors unique in North Texas – a legacy of sincere service to the community for more than 70 years, the first MLS transaction, and more than $7.85 billion in real estate transactions in the past year – but what really makes the company special is its people.

 

“Ebby always said she was able to achieve what she was able to because she was blessed with a great team,” says President & CEO Mary Frances Burleson. “We care for each other and we care for our clients. This more than anything is what makes this company stand head and shoulders above everyone else in the industry.”

 

Ebby Halliday Realtors is a reflection of Ebby herself, an extraordinary leader who inspired thousands of people with her simple approach of “Do Something for Someone Every Day.” And, as the company has grown, it has attracted many like-minded individuals who have played major roles in enriching its reputation for empathetic, knowledgeable and hardworking sales associates and employees.

 

“We’re a company, a corporation, but we’re hardly faceless,” Burleson says. “We’re made up of real people, with big hearts and keen minds – people who care about serving other people. We are quick to listen and slow to speak. We are given to taking on our clients’ problems as if they’re our own. And we’re determined to always do right by them.”

Ebby’s Iconic Little White House Gets Makeover


Ebby’s Iconic Little White House Gets Makeover
One of Dallas’ most recognizable landmarks recently received a major upgrade.

 

“While the exterior of Ebby’s Little White House at the corner of Northwest Highway and Preston Road still looks very familiar to the thousands of people who drive by daily, inside our valued clients, Associates and staff members are enjoying a brand-new, beautiful environment,” says Keith Newman, the office’s sales manager.

 

When the Little White House was built several miles north of downtown Dallas in 1926 it was surrounded only by fields. By 1939, enough people lived nearby – almost 800 – that the area incorporated as the Town of Preston Hollow and the building briefly doubled as its town hall.

 

Ebby Halliday bought the property in 1964 for approximately $100,000 and spent almost $50,000 repairing and remodeling the structure before making it her signature office.

 

While it’s the oldest building for miles around, Ebby’s Little White House today features a just-completed, beautiful interior with the latest technology. Below are just a few recent photos taken recently inside this Dallas landmark.

Spring is Here!


Spring is Here!

 

It’s the first day of spring, and if you haven’t done so already, now is definitely the time to give your yard the respect it deserves. As homeowners everywhere know, nothing can bring you down from the weather high that March brings quite like a backyard that’s still caught in winter.

 

In the brand-new spring 2015 edition of Grand Vie: Luxury in Living magazine, the only luxury-home publication to bring you the very best of Dallas and Fort Worth, we chatted with two renowned local landscape architects, Harold Leidner and Angelynn Harvey, about their top tips for getting your yard ready for the season.

 

Grand Vie: Yard trends change just like home décor trends. What’s a new fad you are seeing in residential yards this year?

 

Harold Leidner: A more modern style and feel. We have always
loved a more modern style, but clients traditionally are more reserved in the style of homes they build, which often dictates the surrounding gardens. Thankfully, more modern architecture in the market means our clients are receptive to a cleaner and more sophisticated design style.

 

GV: What is the most extreme thing a client has asked you to do?

 

HL: We had a great client who asked us to create a movie projection water screen as a part of his pool design. This way he could sit in his pool and watch a movie projected on a sheet of water. It started as a wild idea but we turned it into reality. The result was amazing.
