Local Experts With Global Reach


Local Experts With Global Reach

 

Ebby Halliday Realtors and its sales associates possess a unique understanding of the global real estate market. This understanding is a result of our affiliation with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, a network of premier real estate brokers in nearly 50 countries, and its luxury division, Luxury Portfolio International.

 

When marketing a luxury home such as the commanding Mediterranean estate at 5830 Falls Road in Preston Hollow, Ebby agents tap the network of Luxury Portfolio International members and utilize its website, LuxuryPortfolio.com, to expose listings to buyers across the globe.

 

By showcasing luxury listings on LuxuryPortfolio.com, Ebby agents leverage the strength of a website that consistently ranks at the top of Google search results and has more $1 million-plus properties than any other luxury real estate network.

 

The beautiful estate home at 5830 Falls Road is one of many Ebby listings that receive extensive marketing exposure through Luxury Portfolio International. This extraordinary property, offered for $5,250,000, is listed with Patricia Stampley. Let’s take a closer look.

Luxury Market Sizzles


Luxury real estate is in high demand. That’s the only conclusion one can draw from a quick look at D-FW luxury home sales in the past year:

 

Luxury Home Sales

*  $1 to $2 million: up 11.2%

*  $2 to $3 million: up 5.7%

*  $3 to $5 million: up 24.1%

*  Above $5 million: up 33.3%

 

While sales are up in all luxury price points, they are up sharply in the $3 million-and-up segment of the North Texas market.

 

While most North Texans may never own such a property, this is good news for all of us who call D-FW home. It’s a sure sign that we’re feeling better about our economy and are willing to spend on the things we value.

 

Just what will $3 million buy in Dallas-Fort Worth? In short, a lot. Below are a few of the exceptional luxury homes proudly represented by Ebby Halliday’s talented Associates.

The Latest Luxury ‘Must Haves’


 

Staying current with the latest and greatest modernisms, experiencing destinations of distinction, and knowing how to pamper one’s self have long been major elements in defining the luxury lifestyle. Our summer 2014 issue of Grand Vie: Luxury in Living magazine includes an innovative collection of trends to add luxury to your life.

 

UTOPIAN CONCEPT

P

Say hello to the future of luxury yachting! Resulting from collaboration between Yacht Island Design and BMT Nigel Gee, Project Utopia is an avant-garde vision that looks more like a spaceship than a yacht. With the equivalent space of today’s cruise lines, this stunning creation deviates from traditional design to provide comfort and luxury far beyond your imagination.   YachtIslandDesign.com

 

 

 

BAMBOO BICYCLE

zuri_Urban City_gv14

With the growing impact of people on the environment, any company that finds a more sustainable approach can be labeled pioneers. Zuri Bikes has done just that by crafting first-class bikes out of bamboo. But more importantly, the company is creating jobs in Zambia by growing its bamboo there and focusing on local frame production with healthy work conditions. Each bike is then assembled in Germany.   ZuriBikes.de

 

 

 

WEIGHT AT THE AIRPORT

xScalePro_gv14

It doesn’t get much worse than getting to the airport and finding out your bag is over the weight limit. Avoid that debacle with the Heys xScale Pro. Small enough to fit in your pocket, the scale can weigh luggage up to 110 pounds. A trusted name in travel-goods innovations, Heys is the chosen travel companion of celebrities and fashionistas alike.   Heys.ca
