Ebby Halliday Realtors has appointed Betsy Cameron sales manager of its Ebby’s Little White House office. Chris Kelly, president and chief executive officer, recently made the announcement.

“A fourth-generation Dallasite with 15 years of real estate experience, Betsy brings proven leadership skills and industry expertise to our iconic Little White House Office at the corner of Northwest Highway and Preston Road,” Kelly says. “A natural teacher and mentor who has led other well-known local sales offices, we are very pleased that she has chosen to grow her real estate career with the Ebby Halliday Companies.”

Cameron is passionate about the residential real estate business and the professional relationships that she is privileged to enjoy.

“I am very relationship-driven,” Cameron says. “Relationships are at the heart of real estate, and I am excited about supporting and serving our Little White House agents. The most important thing for me is to understand how each operates so I can better serve them.”

George Lanier says that Ebby Halliday’s Little White House is the perfect fit for him.  In fact, his first impression of the office was so strong, he made his decision before the end of his first interview.

“It just felt right,” Lanier said.  “After talking with [sales manger] Betsy Cameron I felt happy and excited. I told her right then and there, ‘I think I’ve made up my mind.’ ”

Gaynelle Henger, one of our favorite agents/managers/real estate pros, just keeps on giving us a reason to keep up with her!

The former Ebby agent was Dave Perry-Miller’s Preston center office manager for three years. Last April, she left Dave Perry-Miller to join the newly branded Coldwell Banker Global Luxury Preston Center, where she brought agents in by the truckload. Just last October, though, she jumped ship over to The Collective, which of course just merged with New York City-based Compass Real Estate. Word came last night that Robbie Briggs brought Gaynelle in to manage two offices after losing manager Bryan Pacholski. Bryan is now working in agent development at The Collective/Compass. 

And there you have it, four brokerages in 14 months. The great thing about agents is that they jump one ship for another all the time, and all remain professional, even friends, about it. As an agent once told me, you never know when you will work a deal with an agent you once sat next to: don’t burn bridges!  (more…)

Kristin Smith, Conner Cromeens, Candace Evans, John Jones,Rick Davis, and Chyenne Overturf celebrated the launch of the Source Group at Yucatan Taco Stand, an East Dallas hangout.

As we visited (and drank!) with them at their recent launch party, it was hard to not be impressed with what John Jones and Conner Cromeens want to accomplish. And what they HAVE accomplished! The two East Dallas Realtors launched the Source Group at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s with the objective of using their skills,  talents and vast network of connections to fulfill a niche in East Dallas neighborhoods. Truly, their mission statement offers a lot of insight to their business:

“We believe our product is a lifestyle. In everything we do, we believe that honor, integrity and kindness are not benefits, but the standard. We believe that community turns houses into homes. We believe that luxury is an experience. We do these things by offering tireless service, unmatched experience, knowledge, and a kind warm approach. We just happen to sell real estate.”

What it doesn’t say is that Jones and Cromeens have the backgrounds to really cater and guide the homebuying or selling experience into something that isn’t fraught or stressful.

Janis Forse Wells (right) will now be working with her daughter Betsy Carlton Cameron.

After spending the past 18 years at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s, Janis Forse Wells has teamed up with the Ebby Halliday Little White House.  She joins her daughter Betsy Carlton Cameron, who manages the office. However, Wells says that alone would not have been enough to make her switch.

“I love my daughter and I respect her. Everybody assumes that’s why I came here but it’s really not,” she said. “I took a look at the changes that are occurring n the Dallas/Fort Worth market and made a decision based on my analysis.”
