The just-released Real Trends 500 list of the top residential real estate firms in the United States ranks Ebby Halliday Real Estate Inc. 12th in the nation based on closed sales volume.
The REAL Trends 500 is an annual report that identifies the country’s largest and most successful residential real estate firms. The report represents the most trusted standard of measuring the performance of the nation’s leading firms.
“Congratulations to all of our dedicated, hard-working Associates and staff members who made these phenomenal sales numbers possible,” says Mary Frances Burleson, president and CEO of the Ebby Halliday Companies. “And I thank our clients who trust us to represent their real estate needs. Our clients benefit from many advantages that are a direct result of the Ebby Halliday Companies’ status as the North Texas market-share leader.”
Surrounded by members from throughout the Ebby Halliday Companies, Mary Frances Burleson was honored as D CEO’s Residential Real Estate Executive of the Year this past Wednesday night at Dakota’s restaurant in downtown Dallas.
Long before she passed away at the age of 104 last September, Ebby Halliday knew who she wanted to succeed her at the helm of the company she founded in 1945. After all, Mary Frances had been by her side for more than 50 years, and has been instrumental in growing the Ebby Halliday Companies into the largest independent residential real estate firm in Texas. As President and CEO, Burleson oversees Ebby Halliday Realtors, Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate and Williams Trew Real Estate, with combined sales of $7.85 billion in 2015.
Ebby and Mary Frances proved to be quite a powerful duo. Since Ebby’s death, Mary Frances has been repositioning the Ebby Halliday Companies from a legacy company to one that’s on the leading edge of incorporating technology – especially mobile platforms.
Burleson, who is also a recipient of the National Association of Realtors’ prestigious Distinguished Service Award, says she has no intention of slowing down. “I’m not going to sit on the porch and rock,” she told D CEO magazine in an interview highlighting her storied career. “If you do, your mind and body atrophy, and I don’t have time for that.”
Congratulation to Mary Frances, who often says she is blessed to be part of the best team in residential real estate. We feel equally blessed to have her as our leader.
Ebby Halliday Realtors President & CEO Mary Frances Burleson was just named the 2016 Residential Real Estate Executive of the Year by D CEO.
As president and CEO of Ebby Halliday Realtors, Mary Frances leads the largest independent real estate company in Texas and one of the top firms in the nation, with nearly $8 billion in sales in 2015.
Congratulations to Mary Frances and to everyone associated with the Ebby Halliday Family of Companies. As Mary Frances often says, she is blessed to be part of the best team in residential real estate.
Fantastic news today for the North Texas economy: residential real estate sales at the Ebby Halliday Companies topped $6.64 billion in 2014. That’s a record in our 70-year history, and an approximately 4% increase over our record-setting sales in 2013.
“We are so grateful to our valued clients – both home buyers and sellers – who have entrusted us with one of the largest financial transactions of their lifetime,” says President & CEO Mary Frances Burleson. “Sales records of this magnitude reflect the extraordinary performance of our sales associates. We are so pleased to recognize their professional accomplishment and success – they are the reason Ebby Halliday leads the North Texas real estate market.”
The Ebby Halliday Companies participated in 19,189 transactions in 2014 and led all North Texas brokerages with 12.2% market share. The nearest competitor had 5.6% market share.
Locally owned Ebby Halliday Realtors was founded in 1945 on three principles: service to the client, service to the industry and service to the community. The company has consistently maintained a focus on service to the community. In addition to its support of many North Texas charitable organizations, the Ebby Halliday Companies belongs to 27 local chambers of commerce, actively promoting the North Texas economy both near and far.
The Dallas Business Journal just released its annual Book of Lists, its year-end “scorecard” of the people, companies and industries that make up the North Texas economy. We’re proud – and humbled – that Ebby Halliday Real Estate Inc. once again topped the journal’s list of residential real estate brokerages.
With more than 19,500 transactions closed last year, Ebby was again ranked No. 1 on the Dallas Business Journal’s list of the Largest North Texas Residential Real Estate Brokerages. Ebby also ranked No. 1 based on sales volume with a total of $6.44 billion in 2014 sales.
Thank you to all of our Associates and clients for your support and trust. Our status as the North Texas market leader is truly because of you.
As we head into a new year that marks Ebby Halliday‘s 70th anniversary of serving North Texas and one that holds so much promise for our growing region, we continue to be dedicated to our founding principles of service: service to our clients, service to our industry and service to our communities.
