Spring 2011 Grand Vie Magazine


Courtesy of Ebby’s Blog: The Spring 2011 issue of Grand Vie: Luxury in Living magazine is out and is currently being direct mailed to almost 30,000 luxury homes across the DFW Metroplex. As usual, it’s filled with some of the most luxurious homes currently on the market – from the spectacular cover home on Highland park’s famed Armstrong Parkway that will transport you to France without ever leaving your parlor, to the contemporary 1.2 acre Bud Oglesby masterpiece on Park Lane to a residence atop The Plaza which includes amenities at the renowned Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek. With everything from stately traditional to ultra-contemporary, this edition also features luxury homes in Plano, Frisco, Allen and Vaquero.

We’re also proud to continue our use of Tag technology. The Ebby Halliday Companies continuously strive to provide our clients with the very best in home marketing, utilizing the most current communication tools. That’s why almost every page features a graphic Tag, that when scanned with a Smartphone Tag Reader, immediately delivers a full photo gallery, property details including room dimensions, current price and school information and direct access to the listing Associate via phone or e-mail. Some even feature property videos. This immediate connection to the online world makes it easier than ever for Grand Vie readers to find instant information on their property of interest.

Curious to see how the Tag technology works? Try it our by following these steps:

  1. Download the free Tag Reader to your Smartphone at http://gettag.mobi, then follow the instructions for your phone type.
  2. Open the Tag Reader and scan or photograph a Tag on any page in Grand Vie (or the tag above).
  3. Property details, more pictures and agent information will load as a web page where you can explore the property more thoroughly (see examples below).

Another highlight of this issue is the spotlight on North Texas philanthropy, and this time our featured charities are the beneficiaries of two of the biggest events in honor of Ebby’s 100th Birthday. The Foundation Fighting Blindness will hone her with a Roast & Toast Gala on February 23rd at the Hilton Anatole and proceeds will help drive critical research to save and restore vision in more than 10 million people affected by blinding diseases. The Horatio Alger Association of Distinguished American will honor Ebby with it’s Ebby 100 Gala on March 9 at the Meyerson Symphony Center and monies raised will provide scholar ships to Texas high school students through the Ebby Halliday Scholarship Fund. Using a milestone birthday to support charitable causes – it doesn’t get much more Ebby than that.

We hope you enjoy the newest issue of Grand Vie: Luxury in Living. If you would like to see a copy now, you can view the full online edition at grandviemagazine.com.
