I am a Real Estate Broker, a C.P.A. and the founding father of the Hittner Group. I have a B.A. in finance, math and accounting from St. Mary's University and I am a certified public accountant.

We currently currently specializes in move up home buyers and sellers along with first time home buyers. We work with the Minnesota Home Ownership Center and conduct regular seminars teaching first time buyers the ins and outs of purchasing their first home.

In 1993, We realized that the old fashioned, high-pressure style of selling was not only unfair to clients, but hard on my agents as well. So, we decided to take a unique approach to helping people and translated our philosophy into action by forming the HittnerGroup.

Our objective is to help our clients reach their goals. Sheila and I have discovered that once you get to really know people, you can't help but care deeply about what happens to them. Our customers know we are looking out for their best interests. More importantly, Sheila and I never have to hide from past customers as do some agents in this business.

Sheila and I take a long term view to our relationships. We are here to serve our clients long after they have left the closing table. One of our treasured delights is when a past customer calls for advice and we are able to help. Because we have worked with so many people in so many different fields, we are able to get the right information with a couple of phone calls to people we know and trust.

I serve on the Minnesota Association of Realtors Governmental Affairs Committee where I work to beneficially impact home owners and property values with positive legislation initiatives. I have served on the Minnesota Association of Realtors Professional Standards Committee where I worked to insure that the Realtor Code of Ethics was undestood and strictly adhered to. As a member of the Professional Standards Committee I heard complaints and render opinions regarding enforcement actions surrounding Realtor adherence to our professional code of conduct.

I also serve on the examination review committee for the Minnesota Department of Commerce. The committee is responsible for the writing of the Minnesota Real Estate Examination and we review the examination periodically to ensure that test questions are performing in accordance with acceptable parameters. This insures that new licensees are being tested on the relevant aspects of Minnesota Real Estate Law and have a working knowledge of that area of law.

I am a former owner of a medium sized independent real estate company. Our company grew from 8 agents to over 250 agents in 5 offices. The company was sold to Coldwell Banker Burnet in 2008.

Sheila and I have either supervised or directly written real estate contracts helping over 5,000 families realize their dreams. Having been involved in so many transactions and contract negotiations has given us a unique ability to understand and secure a positive outcome for the clients that we represent.

Aside from our love of real estate, Keith's interests include his children, grandchildren, Bible study, travel, classic books, golf, cars, BBQ and cigars! Sheila is also very active with our grandchildren. She scrapbooks, raises Tibetian Spaniels  and loves to entertain our guests and past clients.

Sheila also volunteers time with many organizations  along with our Therapy Dog named Brisket. Together we take Brisket to Fairview Hospital on a regular schedule, to offer comfort to the patents and staff.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Apple Valley, MN.
      I love the Hittner's greatly!

      After moving to Minnesota 7 years ago and living in apartments, I wanted my own special place to call home. I am so very thankful for what Keith and Sheila did to help me. They were patient with me as I looked at one home after another, until Sheila found me "my perfect home"! I love my new house, as do my friends. I finally after 7 years in Minnesota actually feel at home here. I look forward to coming home each day, and knowing that this is the perfect place for me to be.. I have several friendly new neighbors, and I am thankful to have a place that feels like ”home” again! Keith and Sheila thought about details that I never even considered, and walked me gently through each process until everything fit together perfectly. They let me know about a maintenance program from Center Point Energy, which I had to use almost immediately. Everything was corrected with what needed repair, and I was able to utalize other contacts that they gave me as well.

      If you want to feel pampered, then I would highly reccomend the Hittner Group. They greatly care about having things right, and finding you your "perfect" home. No detail is missed, and they definately go the extra mile for you. I want to thank them for doing their jobs as well as they did, My insurance company says that they are the most professional and knowledgeable group that they have ever worked with. I am thankful to the Hittner's for the heart, love, and wisdom that they do their jobs with! They are remarkable!

      Sold a home in 2014.
      We interviewed multiple agents & selected Keith based on the strength of a friend's recommendation, his strong closing skills and his commitment to personally handle our listing & sale. He successfully sold our home within our timeline & at our targeted price. He outlined a marketing plan in advance that effectively coordinated open houses & price drops to maximize traffic and interest in our home. He was responsive & knowledgeable and had many valuable connections throughout the realtor community. We also appreciated Keith's honest feedback throughout the negotiation process. We definitely would recommend him to list & sell your home.  MoreLess

      Bought a home in 2014.
      We moved from across the country to Minnesota, and were very pleased with the professionalism, expertise and helpfulness of this great realtor team. We skyped with them on several occasions, emailed and called frequently, and their recommendations were spot-on when we needed help. They are both excellent communicators, and were very patient with me over the many homes I considered. My husband and I were always kept up to date, and their gentle prodding kept us on track for all the details needed each step of the way. I would highly recommend them!  MoreLess
