The spring 2017 edition of Grand Vie: Luxury in Living magazine recently mailed to homes across the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Grand Vie is the luxury-home publication of Ebby Halliday Realtors and the newest member of the Ebby Halliday Companies, Fort Worth-based Williams Trew Real Estate.
The perfect-bound publication is direct-mailed to approximately 60,000 high-net-worth households in Dallas, Collin, Rockwall and Tarrant counties. Charity and event placement is also a significant part of the Grand Vie distribution strategy – placing luxury homes listed by Ebby Halliday and Williams Trew in front of North Texas’ luxury homebuying audience.
As the magazine’s market update feature, “Spotlight on the Dallas-Fort Worth Luxury Market,” points out, the North Texas region’s substantial economic growth has brought growth in luxury home sales. In the past year, 9 percent more homes priced at $750,000 and above have been purchased than during the prior 12 months, according to North Texas Real Estate Information Systems, Inc. MLS statistics. Luxury home sales are up 4.3 percent in Dallas County, 17.3 percent in Collin County, and 8.2 percent in Tarrant County.
In addition to featuring some of Dallas-Fort Worth’s premier luxury properties, the 22nd edition of Grand Vie offers a plethora of interesting editorial content, including a conversation with Dallas-born and raised fine-art photographer Gray Malin; advice on how to bring spring looks into your home from partner and designer of IBB Design Fine Furnishings Shay Geyer; “Houses of Art,” highlighting some of the area’s top cultural events of the season; LuxeTrends, showcasing a collection of the latest luxury lifestyle must-haves; and real estate insider Candy Evans’ take on the Cultural Capital of Florida: Sarasota.
