In 2010, I purchased a brand new condo located in the Inman Square neighborhood of Cambridge, built by the Hill Harder Development group. The original house was built in the 1870’s. Hill Harder designed and built three units, maintaining many of the architectural qualities of the “old” while creating three unique units, each equipped with quality appliances, Brazilian cherry floors, exquisite detail, and a lovely patio and garden. I couldn’t be more pleased with the unit I purchased and, surprising to me, the process of working with Hill Harder. As a single woman who had never previous purchased a house and who is generally not comfortable or interested in house maintenance, I was tremendously pleased with my experience. For a solid year after moving into the house, I was encouraged by Martin Hill to call him with any concerns that arose, inevitable with any house and particularly with new construction. Without exception, Martin responded quickly and generously, never once charging me for small repairs. I have no doubt that this is not common practice and found it enormously helpful. I never expected a developer to take the time and show the care that Martin did. My assumption was that once the check was cashed, the developer would disappear. This was absolutely not the case. I hope to never have to buy another house as I love this one so much, but if I were to do so, I would without question seek out Hill Harder.
Partnering with homeowners, tenants and neighbors is our passion. Each new project, brings a future resident and everyone in the Hill Harder team is honored to be part of their ongoing lives and communities. The testimonials below are why we continue to build the homes they live in.
Hill Harder is a recipient of a 2010 Cambridge Historic Preservation award for their rehabilitation of 298 Harvard Street. This program has since 1997 honored property owners who conserve and protect the city's architecture.
