Ebby Holliday Mary Frances Burleson
Ebby Halliday, Realtors, is one of the largest privately owned real estate brokerages in the country. I don't know their latest figures, but the last time I looked the firm had brokered more than $7 billion in one year.
There are at least 1,500 agents, probably more.
Ebby Holliday is the founder. Mary Frances Burleson was her assistant when she founded the company a long time ago. We've been friends for decades.
At 104 years old, Ebby still shows up for work now and then, but is, in the main, retired.
Mary Frances has run the day to day operations for many years now.
I don't know as she still does it, but as few years ago as eight, Mary Frances would call every agent on their birthday, and sing Happy Birthday to them on their voice mail.
That, as much as anything, contributed to making the many agents feel like they were not really members of a large organization.
Isn't that a wonderful touch?
