Chris Kelly is president and CEO of the Ebby Halliday Companies, which includes Ebby Halliday REALTORS®, Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate and Williams Trew Real Estate, as well as affiliated mortgage, insurance and title companies. Since taking on the role after HomeServices of America acquired the legacy North Texas powerhouse in 2018, Kelly has worked to shape the company’s strategy and direct operations, with a focus on driving future growth.

To help increase communications within the field, the company recently started a weekly video series titled “Real Estate Roadmap,” a bimonthly video series titled “Market Shapers” and a company-wide Facebook group page for sharing personal and professional stories. The company also started work on an entirely new consumer and agent technology stack and platform, entered partnerships to enhance services and made several organizational shifts.
