‘Tis the Season to Sell your Home


Contrary to popular belief, the holiday season – especially this holiday season – may actually be an ideal time to offer your North Texas home for sale! Why?

Contrary to popular belief, the holiday season – especially this holiday season – may actually be an ideal time to offer your North Texas home for sale! Why?

  • The average home sales price in North Texas is up almost 15 percent over this time last year.
  • Interest rates are at historic lows, which means buyers have more buying power than ever before.
  • Inventory of homes for sale remains at historic lows while showing activity is still tracking higher than this same time last year. 
  • Many people are still working from home, which means a lot of them may want more space, home offices, or just a change of scenery. Combined with lighter work schedules and less (anticipated) travel during the holidays, prospective buyers may use the extra time to search for a new home. 
  • Consumers who shop for a home during the holidays are serious, motivated buyers.
  • Typically there are even fewer homes on the market during the holiday season. Translation: less competition for you.
  • Homes “show” better when decorated for the holidays.
  • Many transferees are not able to wait until the spring market to buy. They are here now and need a home now.
  • By selling now, you’ll have an opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer during the spring, when many more houses will be for sale, which may mean lower prices. This could allow you to sell high and buy low.

Ebby Halliday Companies Named Top Place to Work


The Ebby Halliday Companies, a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate, has been named one of the Top 100 Places to Work in North Texas in the Large Companies category by The Dallas Morning News. The announcement came at the Morning News’ 12th-annual Top 100 Places to Work event, which took place online on November 12. The Ebby Halliday Companies placed No. 10 in the Large Companies category.

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.

“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 celebrate 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, Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, Ebby Halliday Realtors, and 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,” Kelly says. “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.”

Happy Veterans Day


As a small way of expressing our thanks to you, we’re proud to be part of U.S. Military on the Move, a free real estate rebate and information program developed by Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, to allow all active duty, retired military and wounded warriors to earn cash back when they buy or sell a home.

When you buy or sell a home through U.S. Military on the Move, you’ll receive a cash rebate based on the actual sales price – and you’ll receive your rebate at settlement. Military on the Move is offered exclusively by members of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World. To be eligible for the program, register with U.S. Military on the Move before contacting a real estate agent. To register, visit usmilitaryonthemove.com.

At the Ebby Halliday Companies, we know that Veterans are highly disciplined, hardworking, team-oriented and accustomed to overcoming obstacles – all skills that translate well to the real estate profession.

This, combined with the fact that Veterans often face challenges re-entering the workforce after serving our country, is why we have implemented our Veterans to Realtors program. The program eases the transition into the real estate profession for Veterans.

“If you live in the North Texas region, and have served in any branch of the military, then you could be qualified for our Veterans to Realtors program,” says Chris Kelly, president and CEO of the Ebby Halliday Companies.

“If you are able to make a commitment to real estate and are accepted to the program, we will pay your fee at our company school, and you will receive a $500 reimbursement after your first closing. “We also recognize that military service is a shared duty and sacrifice for the entire family,” says Kelly.

“We are proud to also provide this program to any spouse of an active or reserve duty military service member.

“If you are a Veteran and would like to get your residential real estate career started, contact Ebby Halliday Companies Recruiting Specialist Shelly Nelson at shellynelson@ebby.com or any branch office sales manager for Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, Ebby Halliday Realtors, or Williams Trew.

Veterans Day is a good time to remember that our freedom isn’t guaranteed. It’s protected by the men and women in our Armed Services. To those who secure our way of life, thank you!
