The North Texas region’s attractive quality of life, strong economy and low cost of living ensure D-FW will continue its steady rise to prominence among the world’s leading metropolitan areas in 2019. If you want to join in on the fun as a North Texas home buyer or seller, now is the time to start looking for a Realtor.

 

This process is different for everyone, but below are a few things to keep in mind:

 

Experience – Look to agents who have put time into their career and the neighborhoods in which they work. This can mean different things, like trusting someone who has spent years in the business or someone who grew up in the area.

 

Personality and interests – Try to do some background work on a potential agent. Many have bio pages, LinkedIn accounts, social media pages, and online reviews. All of these can be helpful, but remember that not having one or the other doesn’t have a direct correlation to how “good” a Realtor is.

 

Career type – Is being a Realtor the person’s full-time career? If you’re on a time schedule, you’ll want to pick someone who’s in the industry full-time.

 

The numbers – If you’re a buyer, don’t choose an agent just because their commission is lower. If you’re a seller, don’t choose them just because they agree with you on how much your home should be listed for. We’ll say two things to justify these points – you get what you pay for, and, in real estate, there’s no telling how much your home will really and truly sell for at the end of the day.

 

Age – Don’t dismiss an agent based on their age, young or old. What makes an agent the right fit for you is not often their age, but their love of their profession, dedication to you, and the points listed above.

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!
