The Ebby Halliday Companies, a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate, has been named the No. 11 best place to work in North Texas in the Large Companies category of The Dallas Morning News’ 2019 Top 100 Places to Work. The announcement came at the 11th-annual Top 100 Places to Work gala event, held November 13 at the Omni Dallas Hotel in downtown Dallas.
The annual contest is overseen by The Dallas Morning News’ research partner, Workplace Dynamics, a recognized leader in measuring the health of U.S. companies based on employee opinions. Companies are graded in performance of leadership, sense of mission, career opportunities, culture, and pay and benefits.
This year The Dallas Morning News surveyed 330 D-FW companies that employ 154,197 people. The results were determined by 78,960 responses to determine the 100 best.
“It’s so meaningful for the Ebby Halliday Companies to be named one of the Top 100 Places to Work by The Dallas Morning News as we approach our 75th anniversary of serving the residential real estate needs of North Texans and those choosing to move here,” says Ebby Halliday Companies President & CEO Chris Kelly. “This is a great honor for us as a company. I’m most proud that our people are so passionate about the workplace they’ve helped build together.”
The Ebby Halliday Companies is comprised of three real estate brands, Dallas-based Ebby Halliday Realtors and Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, and Fort Worth-based Williams Trew, as well as core-services companies Prosperity Mortgage, Home Team Insurance and Texas Premier Title.
Founded in 1945 as a one-woman, one-office firm, Ebby Halliday today is the largest residential real estate company in Texas by sales volume. It was acquired by HomeServices of America, a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate and the country’s largest residential real estate company based on transactions, in 2018.
“Our people are humble, hungry and smart,” Kelly says. “We treat the Ebby Halliday family of companies as one team and share a common goal of service to our clients, service to our industry and service to our community.
“As an Ebby Halliday Companies client, you’ll benefit from knowledgeable, respected real estate agents and a team of trusted professionals dedicated to making buying or selling your home one convenient experience. While our skilled agents help you navigate the market, our family of affiliated core-services companies will handle your mortgage, insurance and title needs with the utmost care.”
