At the Ebby Halliday Companies, we’re proud to offer Rapid Close, a seamless signing experience that allows you to electronically sign most closing documents before closing. Rapid Close is offered through our affiliated mortgage company, Prosperity Home Mortgage.
With Rapid Close, borrowers can sign all eligible documents electronically prior to closing, leaving you with a limited amount of paperwork to sign at the closing table. Rapid Close saves time, allowing you more time to review documents and ask questions before closing – and gets you to the finish line faster!
5 Simple Steps to Rapid Close
Get the Invitation: You’ll receive an email to access your closing package prior to your scheduled closing date.
Review Documents: After a quick account setup, you’ll be able to review all of your loan documents prior to the closing date.
eSign Documents: On the day of closing, you can electronically sign all eligible documents in advance of your in-person meeting.
Documents are Sent: The e-signed documents are then shared with the mortgage consultant and all necessary parties.
In-Person Meeting: Sign the remainder of your documents and complete the closing in-person!
With COVID-19 still wreaking havoc worldwide, July turned out to be a time to shine for clients like never before, and the agents of all three Ebby Halliday Companies brands — Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, Ebby Halliday Realtors, and Williams Trew — did. They helped family, friends, neighbors, past clients and new clients get out of homes that no longer worked for them and into ones that did. In its 75-year history, the company has not had another month quite like it: 2,000-plus transactions translated to $1 billion in sales volume.
It’s not surprising given the leadership style of the positive, patient, compassionate and strategic President & CEO Chris Kelly. Agents know they have in him a champion for their corner and have been emboldened to follow his lead.
“Really, really remarkable,” Kelly said, in a recent video call to the entire company. “This just doesn’t happen unless every single one of you are dedicated and getting the job done. Think back to three months ago, and imagine ‘we’re going to have the best month we’ve ever had in our 75-year history during a pandemic …’ It’s just unbelievable. But those transactions did not happen without each and every one of you. So, thank you!”
Not only was it a great month sales-wise, but the Ebby Halliday Companies outperformed the market once again in both New Listings and Pending Sales, according to North Texas Real Estate Information Systems, Inc.
North Texas’ residential real estate leader is also growing its footprint across the region. A new Ebby office recently opened in Cedar Hill and a new, larger Prosper office is currently under construction.
“The past few months have been in overdrive with the North Texas real estate market ‘exploding,’ ” Kelly says. “Our team has risen to the occasion and worked days, nights, weekends and everything in between to serve the needs of our valued clients. I am so proud to lead this extraordinary group of individuals – it’s truly been a team effort.”
Celebrating 75 years of service in 2020 to North Texans and those moving to the region, the Ebby Halliday Companies are No. 1 in Texas by sales volume. The Ebby Halliday Companies were acquired by HomeServices of America, a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate and the country’s largest residential real estate company based on transactions, in 2018. The Ebby Halliday Companies’ core-services brands include Prosperity Mortgage, Home Team Insurance and Texas Premier Title. For more information, visit the award-winning daveperrymiller.com.
April showers bring May flowers. Whether you’re looking to give a garden a complete makeover or add a pop of color to your porch, we’ve gathered a list of beautiful flowers that will make a scene this spring.
Marigold flowers bloom in rich orange and yellow colors. They’re known for tolerating the Texas heat and repelling insects from garden plants.
When planted in the spring, Zinnias bloom big in the summer. The flower brings a burst of color to a garden and they also attract butterflies.
Another flower that sits well in the Texas heat, cosmos grow abundantly. They’re low-maintenance and come in a wide range of colors for a vibrant outdoor oasis.
Plumbago, also known as the sky flower, falls in the shrub category. The bright blue flower blooms in clusters and grows well with a lot of sun or light shade.
Celosias are also called cockscomb because the flowers resemble a rooster head. The shape adds a dramatic effect to any garden.
