The Lewisburg Office of Villager Realty was the original office opened in 1973 by its founder and CEO, Timothy Karr. Tim, a lifelong resident of the Susquehanna Valley, realized early in his professional career that Lewisburg would be the perfect town to start his real estate company. Tim was joined in the Lewisburg office in 1991 by his partner Jim Holtzapple, also a lifelong resident of the community.
The original Villager office was located on North Second Street in downtown Lewisburg. They quickly relocated to Market Street, until they outgrew that location and made the move to their current location on the Route 15 corridor. The Lewisburg office also serves as home to the Villager Realty Corporate office, and companywide Relocation Department and Commercial Division. Fifteen full time agents are all active in community activities and many charitable causes. They live in not only Lewisburg, but the surrounding communities of Milton, Mifflinburg, Watsontown, New Berlin and New Columbia. No real estate agency in the entire region has more qualified and diversified agents than Villager Realty of Lewisburg.
