“Our realty is growing quite a bit,” Solvang said. “We’re staying in tune with the market. We’re gaining by leaps and bounds.”

Hillcrest lists everything from available lots to existing homes to condominiums, from the north side of Milwaukee to throughout northeast Wisconsin. As an independent realtor and builder, Hillcrest has no special restrictions on its territory or any other aspect of the real estate or construction markets.

“People know who we are,” Solvang said. “They know we’ll stand behind everything we do. They recognize the name. We will help them with the staging. We help them with the fix-ups.”

Hillcrest customers benefit from working with a company which has remained grounded and focused on quality despite its growth over the years. “We’re growing and we’ll staff accordingly, and we’re used to responding quickly,” Solvang said.

On the other end of the construction spectrum are custom homes also built by Hillcrest Builders, such as the home they built in the town of Plymouth last year which they hope to soon have certified as a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum home, which is one of five Wisconsin homes to receive this highest energy efficiency rating available in the United States. The owner of that home is collecting checks from her local utility for the solar energy the home is producing, and she opens the home on occasion for study by groups interested in seeing the top of the line in home energy efficiency. Interested parties can contact Hillcrest to get a tour and can learn more about that home and about all aspects of Hillcrest on its newly redesigned Web site, www.hillcrestbuilders.com.

“There’s a lot of activity right now,” Solvang said about both his business and the area’s real estate and construction markets. “This is perfect timing.”

And that is perfect news for everyone in eastern Wisconsin.
