Two months ago, Ebby Halliday herself picked up a gold shovel and broke ground for the newest, and one of the largest, Ebby Halliday offices ever: 12,000 square feet of real estate heaven at 1575 E. Southlake Blvd. in Southlake, the future home of Ebby Halliday REALTORS Southlake. On a hot August morning, Ebby was joined by execs from Ebby corporate to cheer on cute Carolyn Rosson, longtime manager of Ebby Halliday, REALTORS®’ Southlake Office, at the groundbreaking ceremony.
“This state-of-the-art office will greatly enhance our ability to serve the needs of the area’s growing number of home buyers and sellers for many more years to come,” declared Mary Frances Burleson, president and CEO of the Ebby Halliday Companies, shovel in hand.
The giant new building will replace the company’s current Southlake office, its third in the booming area since opening in the Southlake market in 1985. Near the corner of East Southlake Boulevard and Carroll Avenue, right across from Southlake Town Square, the new office will offer a highly visible location and the latest in technology.
A “one-stop residential real estate shop,” it will also offer title, mortgage and insurance services. Don’t be surprised if you see a genius bar in there, either.
“The location of our new office is phenomenal,” says Carolyn Rosson, “It is ideally situated across from Southlake Town Square in the hub of the city.”
Expect major technology in every square inch, with cutting-edge toys that will truly set this office apart and off the charts. For example, the new Ebby Southlake office will feature collaboration centers where Associates and clients may meet to discuss residential real estate needs, and some may not physically even be in the building. Cutting-edge technology, including Apple TVs, will help the office’s Associates assist buyers with their home searches and sellers with their understanding of the current local market trends. Busy execs who could not make it to Dallas can join spouses by remote.
Carolyn Rosson, who has been leading top-producing Ebby offices for 26 years, knows that she and her agents are assisting clients with one of the most-expensive and important transactions of their lifetime. Rosson has led the Southlake Office since 2008.
“It is important that we utilize all of the resources that we can to best serve their needs,” said Rosson.
The Southlake Office is currently home to 50 high-producing Ebby agents, and serves Southlake, Westlake, Colleyville, Grapevine, Keller, Roanoke, HEB, Alliance Airport, and all of Tarrant County.
“Our new office will be a gathering place where people can learn about the area, all it has to offer, and why we love Southlake so much,” Rosson says. “We’re invested in Tarrant County and look forward to serving area residents – and those just arriving here – for many years to come.”
12,000 square feet is a pretty large gathering space but then again, that’s just the size of a master closet in a Vaquero home!
