Lori Lamb joined Ebby Halliday Realtors this month. She had previously worked for the Coldwell Banker Park Cities Office.
“The thing that drew me to Ebby was the enormous presence and high respect in and from Dallas and the surrounding communities,” she said.
Lamb, originally from New York, has lived in Dallas for 26 years. Prior to landing in Texas she worked in the corporate world, with stops at American Honda and the Toyota Motor Company in Los Angeles.
She got her real estate license in 2013 after working in property management for several years.
“There are agents who steer away from it, but I have realized a great deal of value in the leasing end of the real estate business,” Lamb said.
Lamb said she has found it to be a good way to help those relocating or in some stage of transition who are likely to buy a home at some point down the road. It is also a good way to network and get new referrals, often nationwide.
While leasing will continue to be an important part of Lamb’s career, she says she is very motivated by her recent move to Ebby and will be focusing a great deal of attention on and to the sales end of the business. When not working, she is a member of the Women’s Council of Realtors and has served on the Metrotex Leasing & Property Management Committee as well as the Diversity & Housing Committee.
