The original owners, Charlotte and Grover Hillbolt, purchased their Round Top farm in 1962 when only a handful of Houstonians had found their way to the rolling hills of South-Central Texas. In 1988, they established Round Top Real Estate and continuously offered their professional knowledge and experience, providing the foundation for the overwhelming success of the company.In 2017, they decided to pass on the reins of ownership to a new team of three who are continuing their legacy.

Frank Hillbolt, Charlotte and Grover’s son, Lisa Mayer and Lilla Blackburn-Sivek purchased the company in 2017. Frank Hillbolt joined his parents at the real estate company in 2002. Lisa Mayer began her real estate career with Round Top Real Estate in 1996 while Lilla Blackburn-Sivek, whose career included working with Martha Turner Properties and John Daugherty Realtors in Houston, joined Round Top Real Estate soon after making a permanent move to Round Top in 2008.

Together, this experienced management team continues to work diligently in positioning Round Top Real Estate for its future. The owners have grown the company from 12 agents in 2017 to 25 real estate associates in 2022. Each agent brings their special experience and expertise to assist their clients.

As Round Top and the surrounding communities grow and new generations seek the same solitude as those before them, Round Top Real Estate will continue to offer a remarkable group of agents committed to those seeking the joy of a small-town setting and the beauty of a quiet country evening.

There’d be power outages and questions for the County Extension Agent but like Waldo, where in the world is he! Over the months that followed, we’d share our confused looks and respond in the same way …”I don’t know, let’s call Lisa!”
