Scheduled to open in July 2017, the roughly 5,000-square-foot office is located at the northeast corner of Highway 289 (Preston Road) and Prosper Trail in Prosper. It will be home to about 50 residential real estate agents serving the greater Prosper/Celina area. A fast-growing suburb in Collin and Denton counties with almost 18,000 residents, Prosper is 32 miles from DFW International Airport and 35 miles from downtown Dallas.
“This state-of-the-art office will greatly enhance our ability to serve the needs of the area’s growing number of home buyers and sellers for many years to come,” says Mary Frances Burleson, president and CEO of the Ebby Halliday Companies, which includes Dallas-based Ebby Halliday Realtors and Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate and Fort Worth-based Williams Trew Real Estate, as well as affiliated companies Texas Premier Title, Home Team Insurance, and Home Team Mortgage Company.
The location of the new office is phenomenal, says Ebby Halliday Companies Chief Financial Officer Ron Burgert, who was instrumental in selecting the new site and building out the new office.
“Strategically situated along State Highway 289 (Preston Road), it offers easy access to the 289 and U.S. 380 corridors, as well as the Dallas North Tollway,” he said.
Ebby’s new Ebby Prosper/Celina Office will feature collaboration centers where Associates and clients may meet to discuss residential real estate needs, said Cathie Skinner, who recently was named sales manager of Ebby’s new Prosper/Celina office. Cutting-edge technology will help the office’s Associates assist buyers with their home searches and sellers with their understanding of local market trends.
Skinner, who has been a real estate agent for seven years, joined Ebby’s Plano/Willow Bend Office three years ago. She has been a multimillion-dollar producer every year since she entered the real estate business. Skinner says she chose Ebby Halliday Realtors because of her respect for the firm’s founder, Ebby Halliday, who passed away two years ago at the age of 104, and because of the firm’s stellar reputation.
“From day one, Ebby Halliday Realtors has offered a firm foundation for my business,” Skinner said. “Having owned many properties and having experienced the ups and downs of the market, I strongly believe in homeownership and in our company.”
A very open, authentic person, Skinner says she is a mentor-teacher at heart.
“I love to see others succeed, and I’m excited about this opportunity to use my enthusiasm and sales skills to ‘sell’ Ebby as a company,” Skinner said. “Agents have choices and they can’t choose a better company than Ebby Halliday Realtors. I am really looking forward to investing in our Prosper/Celina agents by encouraging them and giving them the tools to be the best they can be.”
