Ebby Opens New Southlake Office


It’s a bold new day in Southlake real estate! Ebby Halliday Realtors just opened the doors of its beautiful, brand-new Southlake Office at 1575 E. Southlake Blvd., across from the popular Southlake Town Square.


“This new office, built from the ground up, offers a superior location and is a statement of our commitment to serving Southlake and the surrounding area for many years to come,” says Ron Burgert, chief financial officer of the Ebby Halliday Companies.  The new 12,560-square-foot, exquisitely finished-out office replaces Ebby’s longtime, approximately 8,000-square-foot Southlake Office.


“Near the corner of East Southlake Boulevard and Carroll Avenue, our new office offers a highly visible location and the latest in technology,” Burgert says. “Truly a one-stop shop for residential real estate, it will also offer title, mortgage and insurance services through our affiliated companies, Texas Premier Title, Home Team Mortgage Company and Home Team Insurance.”


The new office features tastefully appointed collaboration centers where Associates and clients may meet to discuss residential real estate needs, a bistro for Associates that would be the envy of many restaurants, a training room with an enormous HD projection screen, and even a playroom for clients’ children. Cutting-edge technology, including Apple TVs, will help Associates assist buyers with their home searches and sellers with their understanding of market trends.


“We are assisting clients with one of the most-expensive and important transactions of their lifetime,” says Ebby’s Southlake Manager Carolyn Rosson, who has led the Southlake Office since 2008. “It is important that we utilize all of the resources that we can to best serve their needs.”


Adds Mary Frances Burleson, president and CEO of the Ebby Halliday Companies, “We’re proud of our commitment to this beautiful part of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. We look forward to serving current and future residents in the manner they deserve for many years to come.”


Now, let’s take a sneak peek inside Ebby’s beautiful new Southlake Office!


We hope you are as excited about our new Southlake Office as we are! For more information on Ebby’s Southlake Office, its Associates and listings, visit or call 817-481-5882. 

Peace, Love, and Dragons


The Carroll Education Foundation’s 18th-annual Culinary Celebration takes place September 6 at The Hilton Southlake Town Square. Sponsored in part by Ebby Halliday Realtors, this much-anticipated event will feature dozens of metroplex chefs, specialty wines and cocktails, live and silent auctions, a big board and more to raise money to support the children and teachers of the Southlake Carroll Independent School District. This year’s theme, a tribute to the ’70s, is “Peace, Love, Dragons.”


Ebby Southlake Associate Kelli Henderson is the 2014 Chair of the Carroll Education Foundation. Henderson, who has two children who graduated from Southlake Carroll schools, has directly seen the benefits of the award-winning district. She has been an active member of CEF since 2005.


The 2013 Culinary Celebration raised more than $220,000, all of which went toward teacher grants and student scholarships benefiting the children of the Carroll Independent School District.


Tickets to the 2014 Culinary Celebration, priced at $100 each or $150 per couple, are available at

We’re proud to have a growing presence in Tarrant County and can’t wait to open our new state-of-the-art office at 1575 E. Southlake Blvd., just across from Southlake Town Square. As the big day nears, you’re invited to keep up with construction progress here on the Ebby Blog.

A Commitment to Tarrant County


Blog Southlake Office Progress (2)

Just a little more than five months ago – on a hot August morning – members of the Ebby Halliday Companies gathered to make a bold statement about our commitment to serving Tarrant County for many years to come. That morning we broke ground on a new Southlake Office at 1575 E. Southlake Blvd., just across from beautiful Southlake Town Square.


Back in August, the “new office” was a dusty lot with huge potential; today we have a better picture of what will soon be one of North Texas’ premier residential real estate offices. Scheduled to open in late spring, Ebby’s new Southlake Office will feature almost 13,000 square feet of space with cutting-edge technology – all ready to serve the real estate needs of our valued Tarrant County clients.


Southlake Manager Carolyn Rosson, who has been at the helm of top-producing Ebby offices for more than 25 years and has led our Southlake Office since 2008, says the new office will offer area residents, those who may be considering calling Southlake their new home, and top-producing real estate agents an opportunity to be a part of something truly special.


It’s an understatement to say that Carolyn and her agents – and all of us at the Ebby Halliday Companies – are excited about our new Southlake Office’s progress. We can’t wait to gather again this spring on what was a dusty lot to celebrate its grand opening! Check back here often for construction updates.
