Southlake Office Celebrates Grand Opening


 

We’re excited to announce that Ebby Southlake Associates and staff, corporate executives, clients and guests, including Southlake Mayor Pro-Tem Laura Hill, members of the Southlake City Council and representatives from the Southlake Chamber of Commerce, celebrated the grand opening of Ebby’s brand-new Southlake Office this morning! The celebration included an official ribbon-cutting for our beautiful new, more than 12,000-square-foot office at 1575 E. Southlake Blvd., across from Southlake Town Square.

 

“This beautiful new office is built for the future,” says Ron Burgert, chief financial officer of the Ebby Halliday Companies. “Built from the ground up, it offers a superior location in the heart of Southlake and is a statement of our commitment to serving Tarrant County for many years to come.”

 

The exquisitely finished-out office replaces our longtime, approximately 8,000-square-foot Southlake Office. Ebby Halliday has served Southlake-area homebuyers and sellers since 1985.

 

“We are extremely happy with the way our new Southlake Office turned out,” says Southlake Sales Manager Carolyn Rosson. “I want to express my heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped bring this extraordinary new office to reality. Ebby Halliday has been part of the Southlake community for nearly 30 years and has distinguished itself as a valued partner for our clients and a leader in luxury real estate. We are so excited about the future of this great city.”

 

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.”

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.”
