So much change is happening at the intersection of Preston Road and Northwest Highway. New luxury apartments are being built on the northeast corner of this busy intersection, construction cones seem a permanent fixture on the southwest corner, and Mark Cuban has bought up several lots nearby and razed the existing homes.

But the northwest corner, home of Ebby Halliday’s Little White House — the signature office of the grand dame of Dallas real estate — isn’t changing anytime soon. In fact, the iconic building was just renovated to perfection, offering gorgeous interiors for clients and the latest technology to the Ebby Halliday Realtors who office there.

“The vision for our remodel was an updated, usable, relevant space that works better; one that allows for easy collaboration between agents and staff,” said Keith Newman, the office’s sales manager. “As part of the remodel, every surface was touched, from the lobby, conference rooms, agent offices and workspaces, even the kitchen and bathrooms. While consistent with the office’s exterior, our interior is all-new, with artwork from local galleries, including paintings and vintage sculptures.”

Truly, the building has come a long way since Ebby purchased it for $100,000 in 1964 and spent almost $50,000 renovating it. And though Ebby is no longer with us in body, her spirit lives on with the innovation and hard work of the leadership team at the Little White House, just one of the 31 Ebby Halliday Realtors locations covering more than 12,000 square miles of North Texas.

“This landmark Ebby office has been completely updated with the future in mind,” says Ron Burgert, chief financial officer of Ebby Halliday Realtors. “It offers an unrivaled location and is a statement of our commitment to serving the surrounding neighborhoods and well beyond for many years to come.”

Of course, we’re certain that Ebby’s Little White House and her legacy are in good hands, thanks to Newman, Burgert, and of course, president and CEO Mary Frances Burleson,

“We’re proud of our commitment to this treasured North Texas landmark,” Burleson said, “and we look forward to serving current and future residents of this extraordinary part of North Texas in the manner they deserve.”
