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.


Below is a snapshot of the 2013 Southlake real estate market:


Average days on market were down 22.5% to 66 days;


The median sales price was up 3.7%;


The percent of original list price received was up 1.4% to 95.4% of asking price;


Finally, closed sales were up 21.7%.
