Ebby Halliday Realtors Brings Local Market Know-How to Allen | CandysDirt.com

Head north to Allen to find some of the hottest real estate in DFW and a family friendly lifestyle supported by schools, parks, and amenities. With a medium household income of over $101,000, this is an affluent suburb with a lot to offer. 

People want to move here, as evidenced by its fast growth over the past decade — in just the past seven years, Allen has grown by more than 13,500 people to its current population of more than 97,800. 

One North Texas residential brokerage is keeping up with the pace, Ebby Halliday Realtors. As we mentioned recently, they’ve opened an expanded location in Allen with leading-edge technology, more group learning space, and a polished interior to appeal to everyone. 

“Ebby Halliday Realtors has served the residential real estate needs of Collin County since 1971 and has had an Allen office since 2005,” said Chief Financial Officer Ron Burgert, who was instrumental in selecting the site and the building of the new office. “We’re proud to open this new, larger office and expand our capacity to serve Allen and the surrounding area as it continues to experience substantial growth.”

I’ve found three top-notch Allen properties represented by Ebby. They show the range of houses available on the market — shall we take a look?

The unprecedented growth in the Dallas-Fort Worth real estate market is buoying one local brokerage, which in turn is reinvesting in offices and agents.

Ebby Halliday is one of the largest and most dynamic brokerages in North Texas with 31 offices, over 1,800 agents, and 12 percent of the market.

“We just had a fine fiscal year, closing Sept. 30, thanks to the very dynamic DFW economy,” said Ebby Halliday Chief Financial Officer Ron Burgert. “Volume-wise, it was just a shade better than the prior year and we closed in the area of 20,000 units.”

The overall sound financials of Ebby allow the company to undertake the construction and refurbishment of quite a few offices around North Texas, underscoring the company’s commitment to the region and signaling its plans to remain one of the top brokerages nationwide.

Ebby Exterior No Clouds

So much change is happening at the intersection of Preston Road and Northwest Highway. New luxury apartments are being built on the northeast corner of this busy intersection, construction cones seem a permanent fixture on the southwest corner, and Mark Cuban has bought up several lots nearby and razed the existing homes.

But the northwest corner, home of Ebby Halliday’s Little White House — the signature office of the grand dame of Dallas real estate — isn’t changing anytime soon. In fact, the iconic building was just renovated to perfection, offering gorgeous interiors for clients and the latest technology to the Ebby Halliday Realtors who office there.

“The vision for our remodel was an updated, usable, relevant space that works better; one that allows for easy collaboration between agents and staff,” said Keith Newman, the office’s sales manager. “As part of the remodel, every surface was touched, from the lobby, conference rooms, agent offices and workspaces, even the kitchen and bathrooms. While consistent with the office’s exterior, our interior is all-new, with artwork from local galleries, including paintings and vintage sculptures.”

It was probably the most beautiful memorial service most of us will ever attend, and it was totally befitting Ebby Halliday Acers, the Duchess of Dallas Real Estate as her pastor, Dr. Jim Denison, called her. The sanctuary at Park Cities Baptist Church on Thursday afternoon was loaded, as was the balcony, and I’m told it holds 3000. The church hall, which holds another 1000, was set up for the overflow.

The afternoon service was laced with beautiful music, beginning with a performance by the Happy Hill Farm Academy choir, Happy Hill being one of the many charities Ebby supported.

Mary Frances Burleson, president and CEO of Ebby Halliday Realtors, remembered Ebby first. Mary Frances started with the company as a temporary secretary, who Ebby asked to stay on permanently. Back then she said she made about $2.50 an hour — “Ebby was my graduate school,” she said. (more…)

Congratulations to the hardworking team at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, as the luxury boutique brokerage has passed the $1 billion in sales mark just halfway into 2015.

“I’m so proud of the work our agents have done on behalf of our clients this year,” said Dave Perry-Miller, the firm’s founder and director of its Luxury Properties Division, in a press release. “The exceptional level of service our agents provide is the main reason we remain the leading brand for marketing homes in Dallas’ most established neighborhoods.”

But don’t expect the firm to sit on its laurels at just $1 billion. Maybe this is the year they run roughshod over $2 billion in sales:

This is the fifth consecutive year that the firm’s sales have surpassed the $1 billion milestone, and its agents show no signs of slowing down. As of noon today, Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate agents were marketing 136 properties listed for at least $1 million, including 13 homes priced at more than $5 million.
