Jennifer Young is the new sales leader of Ebby Halliday Realtors’ Preston Keller Office. Chris Kelly, president and chief executive officer of the Ebby Halliday Companies, and Carolyn Rosson, vice president of brokerage, recently made the announcement.
“Jennifer brings a thorough understanding of all aspects of real estate, from marketing and lead generation to coaching agents and teams to reach their full potential,” Kelly says. “She is the ideal person to succeed Vivian Black, who has been an incredible leader of our Preston Keller Office for many years.”
Adds Rosson, “We are very excited to welcome Jennifer to her new role with our Preston Keller Office and we are so grateful for Vivian’s leadership and friendship over the years.”
Black, who recently announced her intention to retire, began her real estate career with Ebby Halliday Realtors in 1991 and has led the Preston Keller Office for 29 years.
“Vivian Black has been an extraordinary example for all of us at the Preston Keller Office and I am grateful for the opportunity to lead an office that is so widely respected,” says Young.
A graduate of Louisiana State University, Young worked as a registered nurse before becoming a real estate agent in 2014. When she moved to Dallas from Louisiana her Realtor was Mike Harvey. Young says Harvey, with his enthusiasm for real estate, convinced her to become an agent. She joined The Harvey Team in 2014, and when the team moved to Ebby in 2015 she joined them in the Preston Keller Office.
“I knew I could learn so much from working with Mike and Pam Harvey,” Young says. “They are so widely admired and respected. Both Mike and Pam have been great mentors and so helpful to me over the years.”
Young says while learning the real estate business from Mike and Pam, she began to notice how much she also enjoys teaching and mentoring.
“I’m a servant leader at heart,” she says. “As a former nurse, I love to take care of people and I get a lot of joy from watching others succeed. I’m excited about growing our Preston Keller Office to the next level and I am very much looking forward to working with each of our agents on their business plans and helping them achieve their goals.”
Young and her husband, Chris, are the proud parents of four children, ages 16 to 21. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time outdoors, volunteering in the community and cheering on the LSU Tigers.
“I am honored and excited to take on this leadership role,” Young says. “I’m looking forward to continuing to build on our Preston Keller Office’s extraordinary success and growing our brand as the Ebby Halliday Companies celebrate 75 years of serving North Texas.”
