Ebby Halliday (born March 9, 1911) is an American Realtor-real estate broker/agent and businesswoman who founded Ebby Halliday Realtors.

One of the first successful female entrepreneurs in Dallas, she graduated from high school in Abilene, Kansas, in 1929. She got a $10-a-week job selling women's hats at The Jones Store in Kansas City. In less than a year, she was the top salesperson. In 1938, she was asked to take over the millinery department at Dallas' W.A. Green Store. Soon she had her own Dallas boutique, Ebby’s Hats.[1]

She married former FBI agent Maurice Acers in 1965.[2][3] Acers died in 1993.[4]

She celebrated her 103rd birthday on March 9, 2014.[5]
