Ebby Halliday Helps Buyers Find Fabulous Homes, Schools, and Lifestyle in Southlake | CandysDirt.com

The one-of-a-kind home at 1900 Shady Oaks Dr. in Southlake.

Southlake is a well-to-do western suburb situated in Tarrant and Denton counties. It offers the charms of a smaller town with high caliber schools and a highly desirable lifestyle for the people calling it home. 

Ebby Halliday Realtor Susan Mayer lived in Southlake for many years and her daughter went through Carroll ISD. She says the focus on education is one of the big draws of living there. 

“The parent groups were like minded in their focus on education, on quality school programs, and their drive to get these kids into four-year colleges,” Mayer said. “[Many] families in Southlake have dual college degrees, which is important, too.” 

There’s also the feel of the town, which Mayer describes as bucolic. 

“You still get that pastoral feel, but you’ve got some of the top-rated schools in Texas,” she said. “My relocation clients, they always focus on Southlake first if it fits their budget.” 

Which brings us to pricing: a starter house in Southlake will often run you about half-a-million dollars and it’s highly competitive at that lower dollar amount. Of course, you can certainly spend upwards of a million, too, and families clamor to get into this fantastic city at higher prices, too. It’s pretty much an ideal kind of suburb. 

This is where Ebby Halliday comes in. They’ve got seasoned Realtors — many of them Southlake residents — who know the area intimately and personally. They can help homebuyers navigate the Southlake real estate landscape and find the right house. 

I’ve found three marvelous properties represented by Ebby Halliday Realtors that exemplify the kind of houses you can find in Southlake — you’re going to love their style and amenities! Read on to see more.
