Ebby Halliday Foundation Honors Legacy of Dallas Philanthropist, Real Estate Leader | CandysDirt.com

Ebby Halliday Acers was wildly successful in real estate, opening the doors to successful careers for thousands of people. She was also widely admired for her passionate leadership and tireless altruism throughout her life.

This Texas legend is being honored with a namesake foundation that will continue her incredible philanthropic work across North Texas. The Ebby Halliday Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, supports charitable and educational activities that serve women and children in need in the greater North Texas region. Ebby passed away in 2015 at age 104.

“That’s what Ebby did during her lifetime — she helped people and helped organizations [so this foundation will] continue doing that,” said Ron Burgert, chief financial officer of the Ebby Halliday Companies and a founding member of the board of directors of the Ebby Halliday Foundation. “I knew Ebby all my life and she would absolutely be smiling about this and wanting us to carry on after she is gone.”

Among the many tributes to Ebby’s philanthropic legacy in North Texas are Juliette Fowler Communities’ The Ebby House, an innovative transitional community for young women who have experienced foster care or have been abandoned, displaced or abused; the WiNG’s Center at Ebby’s Place, which helps lift economically challenged working women out of poverty; and the Ebby Halliday Library at Happy Hill Farm in Granbury, a 500-acre farm that is home to North Central Texas Academy, an independent college-preparatory day, boarding and international school which seeks out underserved students. And in 2011, she was honored with the new building and naming of the Ebby Halliday Elementary School in Southeast Dallas.

Frisco continues its rapid growth, adding around 37 new residents every day, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. It’s one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation, they reported in May.

That makes real estate in this affluent northern suburb a hot ticket and luxury housing does quite well in Frisco — high-end, gated communities with great amenities are where a lot of those sales are happening. 

When buyers are looking in Frisco, they need an expert with local presence and years of experience, like Ebby Halliday Realtors. They have an office in Frisco at Legacy Drive and State Highway 121 and many of their agents live nearby. They can navigate the market with assurance.    

I’ve found three luxury properties represented by Ebby Halliday in those gated communities — one even has an open house this weekend.
