The Future is Bright for the Ebby Halliday Companies!
I’m not sure if you’ve heard this or not, but some big news just hit the wires, and it involves a company you might have heard of – Ebby Halliday Real Estate Inc. 😉 The news story was presented in this way: “The company leadership recently announced that it intends to be acquired by HomeServices of America, Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate. The acquisition will include Ebby’s three real estate brands: Ebby Halliday Realtors, Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, and Williams Trew Real Estate, as well as the firm’s affiliated mortgage and title companies. The Ebby Halliday companies will continue to operate under their current brand names. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.” I myself am sad about that, I would’ve loved to know the sale price! Inquiring minds want to know! I guess we never will, but I bet it was more than the average sale price of a home in North Texas, that’s for sure! 😉
As you know, the brokerage that I’m proud to call my broker has been serving North Texas residents since 1945, and Ebby Halliday is one of the country’s most widely respected real estate companies. With sales of more than $8 billion, the firm ranked 12th in the nation in 2017. With our memberships in Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, Luxury Portfolio International, Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate, and numerous other industry networks, agents of Ebby Halliday are ideally and uniquely positioned to represent clients across North Texas.
Mary Frances Burleson, the current President of Ebby Halliday, Inc. described the company purchasing Ebby in the following way: “HomeServices of America is the nation’s second-largest residential real estate brokerage company and one of the largest providers of integrated real estate services. HomeServices of America is the owner of the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, Real Living Real Estate and Prudential Real Estate franchise networks.”
The Ebby Halliday purchase won’t change anything in the short term. The long-term vision, I’m not completely sure of, but one thing I am sure of is that regardless of what company owns Ebby Halliday, I as an agent will continue to serve my clients as I always have – with hustle and heart and integrity and stellar communication, if I do say so myself!
