Manuel Chávez, Realtor at Ebby Halliday Realtors, has been recognized as a Marquis Emerging Leader for their contributions and achievements in the field of realty.
Originally from El Salvador, Mr. Chávez immigrated to the United States in 2000 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Central American University and no resources. He spent the first six months in his new country sleeping on floors, but through his perseverance and a natural affinity for helping and serving others, he leveraged 20 years at Nordstrom—advancing from warehouse stocker to top seller, stylist, and designer specialist, developing expertise in customer service and having a positive impact on people’s lives. This would inform the next chapter of his career, which began in 2021 when he became a licensed realtor and agent with the North Dallas office of Ebby Halliday Realtors.
Naturally gifted in the real estate field, Mr. Chávez provides exemplary service to high-profile clientele—for whom he values helping to buy a new home or investment property. Developing his skills and gaining deep real estate knowledge quickly, he received the coveted Graduate, REALTOR Institute (GRI) designation in 2022. Since joining the firm, he has accrued numerous accolades, including recognition as a Realtor by D Magazine and a ranking among the “Top Realtors” by Local Expert Magazine. Additionally, he earned the Rising Star Award and was named Rookie of the Year by Ebby Halliday based on his rapid success. In 2023, he was listed among the Top 250 Nationwide and #6 on the National Association by Hispanic Realtors Company, named among the Best Realtors by D Magazine, listed in the Top 25 Rookies by the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals, and honored as “One of the Top Realtors for 2023” by Local Profile Magazine.
Looking toward his professional future, Mr. Chávez wants to grow and develop his team not only in numbers but as realtors and professionals. He believes that helping others progress enables him to grow and succeed as well. Grateful for his opportunities, he always strives to pay it forward outside of his primary endeavors as well by serving others in the community—volunteering whenever needed and going on mission trips for his local church. Happily married to his wife, Evelyn, he enjoys spending time with his two children, Gabriela and Kevin.
