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.”

A grounded, focused company

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.

Hillcrest Builders will continue to do the smaller jobs for customers as well, including replacement windows. Customers now have the option of having Hillcrest install high-end H Windows made in Ashland.

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.
