Real estate used to be a profession that some people just kind of fell into. Maybe a nice career in law provided a natural segue to something relevant but less stressful and time-consuming. Or maybe the kids were grown and flown and mom and/or dad needed something to keep themselves busy. Or, of course, there’s always those who just thought it looked easy and glamourous.
Sometimes it is. And sometimes … well, it makes for a lot of great stories.
Today, many young people are getting their licenses earlier in their careers, often before or during the marriage and kids phase. And they’re looking to align with a brokerage that has an established reputation, shares their values and values their input, offers excellent support and education, and is well-positioned for future growth. The Ebby Halliday Companies, comprising Ebby Halliday Realtors, Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate and Williams Trew, checks all those boxes.
In fact, the company recently came in at No. 11 on The Dallas Morning News’ list of Top 100 Places to Work (Large category). Agents and staff cite as reasons to consider the firm both new leadership and great support in the forms of education, marketing, and mentorship, to name a few. The name recognition certainly helps, too, when trying to get your foot in the door on a listing appointment.
