Ebby Halliday Companies, one of Dallas-Fort Worth’s largest brokerage firm, has partnered with a real estate technology company.
Maryland-based Curbio Inc. formed a partnership with Ebbay Halliday, which now will apply Curbio’s “renovate now, pay at settlement” model to streamline its home sales, the companies announced Wednesday.
Curbio specialises in on-demand, pre-sale home renovations through a range of proprietary technology. The company offers same-day estimates, real-time video updates and virtual walkthroughs on its projects.
According to the Curbio, its services generate quicker sales and greater proceeds for sellers.
“As one of the fastest growing metro regions in the United States, there’s a huge demand for move-in ready homes in Dallas-Fort Worth,” Curbio VP of marketing Rikki Rogers said in a press release. “By partnering with Curbio, Ebby Halliday agents will help their sellers leverage that demand and maximize the sale price of their homes.”
The partnership with Ebbay Halliday comes as the venture-funded company looks to expand across the nation. Dallas was its first Texas market. It launched in Houston on February.
Continuing on its hypergrowth phrase, Curbio is expected to start operations in Orlando, Chicago, New York and Los Angeles this summer.
“Ebby Halliday Companies takes pride in continuing to innovate with new services that meet agent and market needs and ultimately provide a preeminent experience for our clients,” Randall Graham, vice president and director of marketing at Ebby Halliday said in a statement.
Ebby Halliday has about 1,800 agents and staff in 33 offices in North Texas. In 2018, the residential real estate company made more than $7 billion in sales.
Fort Worth’s Williams Trew is a division of Ebby Halliday Real Estate.
“Adding Curbio to our arsenal of sales tools is exactly the type of service that sets our agents and company apart,” Graham said. “Having a partner like Curbio helps our clients decrease days on market and increase their proceeds at closing.”
