Evelyn Ponder has decades of experience in high-end residential real estate. With her late husband, Oscar, they co-founded and were partners in Encore Homes — a successful luxury developer/custom home builder – prior to getting her license to represent buyers and sellers. Those homes stand all over Dallas as living testaments of the Ponder family commitment to high standards of excellence. Evelyn is also dedicated to serving her community, helping raise close to $12 million for AWARE (Alzheimer’s Women’s Association for Resources and Education) since its inception in 1989. She was even nominated for the Junior League’s prestigious Linz Award, which honors people whose civic or humanitarian efforts benefit the city of Dallas.
