North of LBJ Freeway near Preston and Hillcrest roads you’ll find some of the best neighborhoods in the city with larger lots, newer homes, and more square footage.
But with those great North Dallas opportunities comes competition from other buyers, so you need a local expert on your side. Ebby Halliday Realtors offers boots-on-the-ground experience from Realtors who know North Dallas inside out.
I’ve found three stellar properties represented by Ebby Halliday that illustrate the care and attention sellers get from them and the opportunities buyers can expect.
