In today’s competitive real estate market, the person who buys your home is likely to come from a different town, city, or even country. More than ever, success in marketing your home results from casting the widest net.

This single mom recently started her homebuying journey with Ebby Halliday Realtor Peter Loudis, one of the top producers in Ebby’s Lakewood-Lake Highlands office.

She’s documenting her adventure on social media as @Amyvanderoef, including her blog at

“Amy has decided to take the plunge into homeownership and she searched for a local real estate expert and came across my name,” Loudis said. “She is looking for a new home in East Dallas and wanted to track her journey and give a real account of the homebuying process.”

Choosing a brokerage was an essential part of Vanderoef’s homebuying process.

“Having my Ebby Halliday team by my side has made all of the difference – their knowledge and confidence in this housing market allows me to enjoy the process while they lead the way,” she said. “Peter Loudis came highly recommended as an award-winning industry leader, and he’s a family man, which is important, too. He has been amazing to work with!”


ebby halliday app

Consumers, especially Millennials, are changing up their house-hunting strategies. More than ever, buyers are relying on smartphone apps to discover available properties and narrow down their searches before getting in touch with a real estate professional.

Ebby Halliday Realtors has been on the leading edge of technology in the North Texas real estate market since they introduced a searchable website in the 1990s. Many brokerages weren’t even online then.

They are again shaping the technology landscape in real estate with the Ebby Halliday Realtors app, offering a plethora of powerful features and user-friendly components.

“The Ebby app is a natural extension of our website,, said Randall Graham, vice president and director of marketing for Ebby Halliday Realtors. “We are dedicated to meeting all of our clients’ needs by providing advanced interactive mapping for consumers on the go.”

The app is proof of their expertise in the area of technology, showing Ebby “gets” the needs of modern buyers, particularly Millennials.

“This innovative app provides information in a natural way starting with a map, not a menu,” said Graham. “Just a few of the functions available to Ebby app users on the go include the ability to immediately find open houses and newly listed properties, and it’s easy to perform detailed searches and to share properties of interest with friends or your Realtor.”
