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.”

Little White House

Fear not — Ebby’s Little White House is going nowhere (photo courtesy Ebby Halliday Companies).

Among some history buffs, a slight tremor of worry cropped up a couple of weeks ago when zoning change signs appeared at the corner of Preston and Northwest Highway — where the “little white house”, long the symbol of the work of the late Ebby Halliday, has sat for 93 years.

In a town where sometimes history sees the business end of a backhoe before it can be preserved, many preservation-minded folks rightfully worry when those city signs crop up.

In this case, however, those fears are unfounded, officials with Ebby Halliday Companies and the Ebby Halliday Foundation said. (more…)

 

Kelly Nolan has returned to Ebby Halliday Realtors, the place where her agent career began.

“Yeah, I’m back in the saddle,” she said.  Nolan is currently working on a marketing campaign based on a line from a Beatles song, “the long and winding road leads me back to your door.”

“It’s cool because in a way I’m starting as a new agent but I’m not suffering all of the doubts like, ‘can I do this?’”

Ebby Halliday's Little White House Welcomes John Murray to the Team | CandysDirt.com

Ebby Halliday’s Little White House has assembled one of the best real estate teams in North Texas. They’ve added to their prestige with Realtor John Murray, who recently came on board. 

Murray, who founded another Dallas brokerage in 2001 and was a partner, made the decision to divest his interest there and come on board at Ebby. That decision was multifaceted, Murray says, and a lot of it rested on his experience with the Ebby team. 

“Ebby has stellar leadership — for example, I’ve worked with Keith [Newman] for many years in the business and I’ve always appreciated his integrity and knowledge of the industry,” Murray said. “It’s a pleasure and honor to be a part of the Ebby Little White House team now.”
