After unsuccessfully trying to sell her home, Athena Leung contacted the agent who had sold her neighbor’s home the prior year. A few days later after touring her home, Debbie Murray of Ebby Halliday Realtors recommended changes which Ms. Leung could make to her home to prepare it for the real estate market. Some changes involved her spending money and some were free, such as furniture placement and the use of Ms. Murray’s personal inventory of home accessories. Within one week after the initial visit, Ms. Leung had hired painters, landscapers, and other vendors for services which Ms. Murray recommended. The home was then listed and later SOLD. “Athena was a willing seller. She listened and made changes to her home which enabled me to attract buyers. Together as a team we accomplished the goal of selling her home”, Ms. Murray said.
“Home staging is bigger than ever. The slightest changes such as furniture placement may make an awkward room layout seem sensible. As realtors, our jobs are to maximize the strengths of a home and minimize the negatives. Sellers who understand this benefit from an agent’s knowledge and expertise”, says Ms. Murray.
“I am truly thankful for Debbie’s efforts in selling my home and the staging made my home gorgeous. I have worked with many agents in the past and Debbie is the best”, says Ms. Leung.
In addition to being a licensed BROKER in Texas, Ms. Murray is an Accredited Staging Professional, a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist, a Ceritified Residential Specialist, and an Accredited Buyer Representative. Since 1999 Ms. Murray has served buyers and sellers in Dallas, Collin and Denton Counties. Ms. Murray may be contacted at 214/558-1004 or you may email her at Debbie@Ebby.com
As the fall kicks off and the holidays quickly approach, remember that this time of year is a great time to get bids on home improvements. Many vendors are less busy around the holidays and are eager for the work, therefore, they will negotiate their fees. Update now, enjoy the holidays, and be ready to list your home for the spring market! And remember that if your home was built prior to 1978, special contractors may be needed due the possibilities that your home may have lead based paint! For a list of reliable contractors used by former clients, contact Debbie @ Ebby today!

You guys deserve it…And MVP, Dirk does too!
On May 9th, 2011 while driving her car, my daughter was hit by a woman driving an Expedition who ran a red light. Station Five of the Plano Fire Department was one of three fire stations to respond to the accident. Pictured here are the Station Five Fire Fighters who arrived in the engine and truck. They used the Jaws of Life to cut Cathy out of her car. Thank you for your quick response, and thanks also to the Medics from Station Six and Station Ten!
Teamwork sells homes…and this seller followed my advice in preparing their home for the real estate market. I must admit that this home was already beautiful, however, with a few minor changes inside and out, we got it sold in 11 days!
