News from Ebby Halliday: Catherine Sims has been named Vice President of Core Services for the Ebby Halliday Companies.
Core services are real estate related companies and, well, services that touch and enhance the real estate transaction. They are necessary, but you usually have to shop around for them. Ebby’s affiliated core-service companies available to clients include Home Team Mortgage, The Lending Partners, Home Team Insurance and Texas Premier Title.
Chris Kelly, president and CEO of the Ebby Halliday Companies, announced Sims’ new position this week. And he emphasized the Ebby Halliday Companies’ distinct position in the North Texas marketplace as an organization that meets the needs of its sales associates and clients during the entirety of the real estate transaction, including now core services.
“To ensure this unique distinction remains at the forefront of our business strategy, we have created the role of Vice President of Core services,” Kelly said in a statement. “Catherine Sims possesses an intimate understanding of the strength and capabilities of our core services through her past leadership role within The Lending Partners, where she was frequently at the forefront of connecting and communicating with our sales associates and their clients, focusing on how our amazing mortgage, title and insurance teams deliver an exceptional experience.”
Sims has been with Home Team Mortgage and The Lending Partners for more than 10 years. She has served as a loan originator and in sales-management positions. Now she will help coordinate a seamless real estate transaction for every Ebby client.
“My new role will be the ‘glue’ that pulls together each of our core services,” Sims said. “This model has been very successful within the HomeServices family of companies, of which we are a proud member.”
As Chris Kelly explains it: when you buy a car, you don’t go to one place for the body, the next for tires, then another for interiors and a steering wheel. The real estate transaction is many more parts than just the contract. Ebby Halliday aims to make the entire experience as seamless a transaction as possible, with “one-stop shopping”, something that HomeServices has been doing in other markets for years. (more…)
