Ebby Named Among Nation’s Top-Producing Brokerages

 

RISMedia’s annual Power Broker Report recently named Ebby Halliday the No. 10 residential real estate firm in the United States based on sales volume. Ebby Halliday’s 2015 sales volume totaled more than $7.85 billion, representing 20,632 closed residential transactions.

 

Now in its 28th year, the Power Broker Report has long honored the brokerage firms and real estate leaders who shape the industry.

 

RISMedia President & CEO John Featherston congratulated Ebby Halliday for the company’s prestigious ranking in this year’s Power Broker Report. “The firms represented are the nation’s most elite brokerage firms serving literally millions of consumers with their real estate needs,” Featherston said. “2015 was a growth year for many real estate firms across the country, despite continued inventory shortage in many areas. Today’s homebuyers and sellers need a trusted, credible real estate professional to help them understand the opportunities in today’s market and how to overcome the obstacles that may be holding them back. Being ranked in RISMedia’s Power Broker Report validates Ebby Halliday’s reputation as a trusted resource for today’s real estate consumers.”

As Seen in The Dallas Morning News


 

Steeped in Tradition, Poised for the Future

 

The following story appeared on the front page of the DFW Real Estate Finder section of The Dallas Morning News on Sunday, November 8:

 

Ebby Halliday Realtors is celebrating 70 years of serving North Texas’ residential real estate needs in 2015.

 

In 1945, Ebby Halliday founded her then one-woman, one-office firm based on three principles of service: service to the client, service to the industry and service to the community.

 

“For 70 years, our company has exemplified this simple, yet profound, mission,” says President & CEO Mary Frances Burleson. “Each of us at Ebby Halliday Realtors is extremely proud to be part of an organization that places service to others at the forefront of everything we do.”

 

Each year Ebby Halliday Realtors serves the residential real estate needs of more than 20,000 individuals and families moving to, from and within North Texas, always with the commitment of providing exemplary service during what can be one of life’s most-exciting, yet often stressful, events.

 

The company’s commitment to its industry is legendary: Ebby Halliday Realtors is the only real estate firm in America to be honored with three National Association of Realtors Distinguished Service Awards. The winners include Founder and philanthropist Ebby Halliday, who passed away September 8 at age 104, the late Posie Willess, and Ms. Burleson.

 

Ebby Halliday’s third principle, service to the community, has created a dynamic company culture whose philanthropic impact on North Texas cannot be overstated. The firm supports a plethora of community initiatives across North Texas. Just a few of those include the United Way, Vogel Alcove, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra’s DSO on the GO community concert series, the annual Dallas Children’s Health Holiday Parade, the Junior League, and the Plano Symphony Orchestra’s EncoreYouth program.

 

While Ebby Halliday Realtors is widely respected for its three pillars of service, the company and its Associates are also well known for offering clients the real estate industry’s most cutting-edge technology. Ebby.com and the Ebby Halliday Realtors App are benchmarks in the industry and offer homebuyers and sellers considerable advantages.

 

Ebby Halliday Realtors also offers clients the advantages of its affiliation with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World and its global luxury-marketing arm, Luxury Portfolio International. Ebby Halliday was a founding member of the LeadingRE network. By tapping into this worldwide network of 120,000 Associates, Ebby Halliday exposes homes to buyers on six continents. In addition, the company receives inbound clients who are interested in purchasing a home in North Texas. Last year the LeadingRE network was responsible for $314 billion in home sales – more than any national real estate brand.

 

“As the largest in-house relocation team in North Texas, we offer an exhaustive list of services, but the bottom line, in the relocation business, is it all comes down to the agents – having the right people in the right place,” Corporate Real Estate Services Director Karen Greene says. “At Ebby Halliday Realtors, we have a remarkable group of agents who are ready to serve you.”

 

Adds Chief Financial Officer Ron Burgert, “As we celebrate our company’s 70th anniversary, we thank our valued clients and our hard-working Associates and employees. As we look forward to the next 70 years, we’re more committed than ever to honor Ebby Halliday’s extraordinary legacy through exemplary service to our clients, industry and community.”

An Extraordinary Year for North Texas 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.
