    Satisfaction Rating An agent's star rating is the average of all the ratings of their service.
    Thirty two years ago, with the encouragement of my developer/builder husband, I stepped into a real estate course that began a journey that has satisfied many needs and goals in my life. Watching my builder struggle with inept sales staffs, I pursued learning everything I could about real estate sales, new construction, and providing the best service to my clients that I saw missing in other agents. That education continues on a regular basis, completing my certification for sales in Distinctive Properties, land acquisition, new construction, home staging and relocation services with CARTUS. - with skilled attention to military buyers and sellers. I joined ERA King Real Estate in 2013. I have proudly served on the "Governor's Committee of 250" for the American Cancer Society of AL, Chamber of Commerce Executive Committee in my community, and participate annually in the fund raising and support of "The Children's Place" - an advocacy center for abused children. I enjoy gardening and have a passion for landscape and still life oil painting (in spare time).

    Proud Mother of one awesome daughter and two sons who served in the military, one an Apache helicopter pilot in the US Army, one a member of the Viper Air Squad Demo Team in the US Air Force; and, thankful Grandmother of 5. I find additional satisfaction in my life providing professional assistance to my buyers and sellers in accomplishing their housing dreams!!! It is a privilege to serve in this industry.

    Sandra gave Hilga 5 stars out of 5
    Mrs. Hilga is a great realtor and helped me to find a home in Trussville during this pandemic that I truly love. We had a great experience, and she was able to offer a lot of insight into locations and how to approach the housing industry. Mrs. Hilga is not only a joy but a blessing to work with. She is always pleasant, explained clearly what was going on, and is always on time for appointments. Early morning texting, late-night phone calls, and emails; always positive and always cheerful. She is a terrific lady. What a truly great person you have representing your company! If ever again I need an agent or know of someone looking for a good agent and company, I would suggest this company.

    Through my line of work in customer service and sales, I've come to be acquainted with probably a dozen realtors covering several local towns. I've known Mrs. Hilga Kerr for better than 20 years now. She is the professional I immediately turned to when it was time to downsize my home. Her knowledge, experience, and level of expertise in her field were easy locks for my needs. She is a true asset to ERA KING real estate. I recommend her regularly to others in need of real estate issues, and look forward to working with her again in my upcoming relocation.

    Hilga is a 5 star realtor! Actually I would give her 10 stars if I could. She is always on time, and is very professional with her clients, while making them feel like she is taking care of her own family. We have recommended her to our whole family and she has followed through with a sale every time! I do not have anything negative to share about her. She puts in long hours and has always made sure we were taken care of, and had our best interest in mind. We are so thankful to have met her via the military program. We love Hilga!!

    When I first met Hilga, she opened her arms to me and the endless opportunities for me to get the home that was right for me. I had no idea about the home buying process, but she was there every step of the way. She was kind, easy to talk to, and was always available when I needed her her. She praised how proud she was of my accomplishments me, and that made me feel confident in the new chapter I was beginning in my life. She knows so much about homes inside and out, plus information about the area and safety.

    Hilga is an excellent realtor! She helped us with our relocation and knew all of the right questions to ask. She made us feel like we had an advocate during a very challenging time and we were really impressed with her knowledge. Honestly, Hilga checks every box when it comes to her strengths. Highly recommend!

    In all my 76 years of age I can easily qualify Hilga Kerr as the most professional, yet personable Real Estate Professional I have ever dealt with. Obviously there have been a number of RE agents over the years, but she is easily #1. I fully trust her, rely on her, and have, in fact, utilized her talent, knowledge, experience, and professionalism to benefit.

    Looking for a home that fits your familys needs can be challenging. You need a realtor that not only knows the properties that are available, but someone that will listen to you, A realtor that does her homework, and has a list of homes to show you that is not only in your price range, but homes that meet you needs. I can truly say Hilga Kerr is this type of realtor. She cares about her clients, and makes them feel like they are the most important clients she has. She also follows through the sale. After working with her you become much more than a client, but a friend. I would recommend Hilga to anyone looking for a home.

    I would highly recommend Hilga as a real estate professional to sell and/or buy a home. Her ability to stage your home to sell and to negotiate the price are only 2 of her excellent skills she used to sell our home. We also asked Hilga to help us in buying a home. We decided to build and she was invaluable in guiding us through the process. She has excellent taste in interior design. We were very happy with Hilga's part in our transition.

    John gave Hilga 5 stars out of 5
    We met Hilga one afternoon when my wife and I were thinking about selling our home and moving. At that time we had not contacted a Realestate Agent and Hilga 'very professionally' offered to look at our house, evaluate it and offer ideas to help us sell it. Hilga took all of the right steps and made the right moves to get our home sold. We loved the positive attitude that she maintained through the whole process. If we ever decided to sell again, Hilga would be the Realestate Agent that we would call!! We would be more than happy to recommend Hilga to anyone!

    There are few words that would describe the amazing experience with Hilga Kerr as my realtor. I was purchasing a piece of property that required multiple transactions....it first was divided and 1/2 sold to a builder that Hilga made contact with. We then were required to go before the City council for approval. I decided to divide the remaining acreage into two lots and this required establishing a "subdivision" due to the legal restrictions. There were innumerable "hoops" to jump through, not only with the acreage but also the mortgage company, which I could never have achieved without Hilga. Not only did she just "handle" problems that would arise, she would also hold my hand in the areas I needed to handle. I have bought and sold many properties...never before have I had a realtor that cared as much as Hilga Kerr. I will never use anyone else!
