Ebby Halliday, Dallas real estate’s most beloved icon, has died at 104.

“Here’s what the company had to say about their beloved founder’s life: Her impact on the residential real estate industry was unmatched. Over the years, Ebby opened the doors to successful careers for thousands of people; in particular for women at a time when opportunities were limited.

Ebby began working at age 8 near Abilene, Kansas, riding her pony from wheat farm to wheat farm selling Cloverine salve, which she marketed as good for bug bites, cuts and bruises. She quickly learned the profit system, the value of repeat business and the importance of attention to customer service.”

Such a great story, you should really read the whole thing. One thing that I’ve always loved is the Ebby Halliday logo. Just a simple typeface, very mid-century, yet still very timeless. Rest in peace.
