Ebby Halliday: Independent real estate powerhouse at 93

Brokerage founder has no plans to sell

Men were jumping from Wall Street windows in 1929, the year that Ebby Halliday graduated from high school. She survived the Great Depression selling hats, and hat sales would later lead her to a career in house sales. Sixty years ago, Halliday founded Ebby Halliday, Realtors, and the company has grown to become one of the top independent brokerages in the nation.

Halliday, 93, has seen some major changes in the real estate industry in her time.
