Find the Ultimate Luxury High-Rise Living with Expertise of Ebby Halliday Realtors | CandysDirt.com

Hi-rise living is a popular option, especially in some of the best buildings in Dallas. Whether you’re buying or selling a hi-rise home, you need an expert on board to help navigate the process. 

I’ve found the Realtors at Ebby Halliday to be some of the most knowledgeable in the business, and they certainly get some fabulous listings! I’ve found three you’ve got to see, including a penthouse at The Mayfair that has us all enamored.

When a condo is first built and still controlled by the developer, HOA dues are kept low to not scare off buyers. Once the developer is gone, those payments have to be reassessed to ensure they meet the needs of the ongoing repair and maintenance of the building.
