Firm celebrating 75 years of service to North Texas

“When you consider the Dallas business landscape, it is hard to find any company that has lasted 25 years much less 75 under the same name. I had the privilege of starting my real estate career, over 30 years ago, with The Ebby Halliday Company at the iconic Little White House and now just a few blocks away with Dave Perry Miller, an Ebby Halliday Company.
Ebby herself sold my parents their first home in 1950 on Beverly Drive.  I learned the basics of selling real estate from this great company and have always appreciated the leadership and integrity. The same values and leadership continue on with the ownership change to Home Services. Chris Kelly and his team, led by Gino Blefari the CEO of Home Services, continues to show masterful leadership as well as progression into our ever-changing times.
I am proud to be a part of such an impressive legacy.”

The Ebby Halliday Companies is the No. 1 residential real estate brokerage in Texas, according to REAL Trends Inc.

Throughout 2020, the Ebby Halliday Companies are celebrating 75 years of serving the real estate needs of North Texans and those relocating to the region. It all began in 1945, when one bold woman parlayed her wisdom, generosity, business acumen and endurance into what is today the No. 1 residential real estate brokerage in Texas, according to REAL Trends Inc.

“Long life is a privilege not everyone, or every company, gets to enjoy,” said Chris Kelly, Ebby Halliday Companies’ president and CEO.

“During this anniversary year, we acknowledge this fact with a spirit of gratitude.”

The legacy of Ebby Halliday, who founded Ebby Halliday Realtors in 1945, is carried out daily in North Texas through 2,000-plus agents and staff across three real estate brands and in-house mortgage, insurance and title companies. It is now amplified by the Ebby Halliday Companies’ affiliation with Berkshire Hathaway affiliate HomeServices of America, the country’s No. 1 residential real estate company.

Acquired by HomeServices in 2018, the Ebby Halliday Companies are modernizing homeownership services and are focused on ensuring that homeownership is available to everyone who wants to own a home in North Texas. Among the company’s primary business objectives in 2020 is furthering access to homeownership opportunities for historically marginalized communities.

The Ebby Halliday Companies include real estate brands Ebby Halliday Realtors, Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate and Williams Trew and core-services companies Prosperity Mortgage, Home Team Insurance and Texas Premier Title.

“Simply put, we offer one ‘door’ to everything you need to buy or sell a home in North Texas,” said Kelly. “Purchasing or selling in any other way would be like going back in time. Our complete offering of brokerage, mortgage, title and insurance homeownership services ensures you have the easiest and most secure real estate experience. In good times and, most importantly, in challenging times, we have stood by North Texas and North Texans for over 75 years. It would be our honor to put our experience and strength to work for you.”
