Who We Are:
Darcy Haber, Broker/Owner, Ecobroker
firstname.lastname@example.org (608) 358-6180
Darcy arrived in Madison in 1992 for law school and although she didn’t plan on staying, she fell in love with Madison and never left. Since that time, Darcy has been active in the community as a consumer rights attorney, as a community activist (proud to oppose the Walker agenda), as a real estate professional, and as an involved mom of two wonderful children. She has served on several boards of local nonprofits such as Community Shares of Wisconsin, the Social Justice Center, and ABC for Health. She currently serves on the board of the Goodman Community Center and the Greater Williamson Area Business Association.
Darcy particularly enjoys the opportunity to help buyers view homes from an energy and health perspective, and teach opportunities on how to upgrade to energy-efficient features.
As one of a handful of EcoBrokers® in Madison, she is excited to bring her EcoBroker® specialty and knowledge to her clients.
Through the EcoBroker® coursework she can now offer the expertise of being able to highlight the energy-efficient and indoor air quality features a potential home may have, connect you with local experts for testing or for upgrading your home, and discuss financing and incentives for your green improvements. For sellers, it means she has been specifically trained to market the environmental and energy-efficient aspects of your home and target the right market to provide maximum exposure. It excites me to help people move to Madison, or move within Madison to find not only a great home but also the best neighborhood for them.
When she is able to carve out some free time, Darcy likes to bike, cross-country ski, and embark on home improvement projects she should probably leave to the professionals. Darcy and her husband, David, who is a public school teacher, have lived on Madison’s Near East side for over 20 years and are passionate about the community they call home.
Peggy Adams, Real Estate Agent/CPM/HUD Registered
email@example.com (608) 206-2106
Peggy Adams joined the Solidarity Realty team in February of 2014. She specializes in selling and first time homebuyers both in and around Madison. As a native of the city, she knows a thing or two about how conditions in the community have declined thanks to Walker and his supporters. This is why she feels at home with a team that devotes themselves to strengthening our city and its members.
Peggy is one of only a few Realtors in the area with a degree in Real Estate and Certificate in Property Management. She got her license to practice Real Estate in 2011. Once out of school, Peggy started her career in property management working with an array of neighborhoods from affordable housing to luxury apartment homes located across both Dane and Columbia counties. An excellent multi-tasker, Peggy’s claim to fame was starting to practice real estate halfway through her pregnancy and closing 3 deals in the last 3 months of her pregnancy!
In her free time, Peggy loves to spend time with her her daughter Autumn, her husband and her furry child, a 9 year old Shih-Tzu. Peggy also enjoys spending time in the summer on Lake Wisconsin or around any body of water she can find. Her passions include animals, music, and family. Oh, and did we mention she is a huge Milwaukee Brewers Fan?
Jesse Pycha-Holst, Real Estate Agent
firstname.lastname@example.org (608) 215-1059
Jesse Pycha-Holst has lived in the Williamson-Marquette neighborhood since 2004. He graduated from the UW-Madison with a degree in genetics. He has also spent years working in home restoration and has worked as a state certified lead-safe renovator.
Jesse is firmly committed to helping you find the right home for your needs and will take the time to find the right fit for you. Having pulled apart homes board by board before putting them back together, he loves making every showing a teachable moment so you know precisely what you’re getting when you decide to purchase.
Jesse joined the Solidarity Realty team in January 2016. No stranger to politics, he managed the Get Out The Vote efforts on the isthmus during the 2012 and 2014 election cycles. Jesse currently sits on the board of the Marquette Neighborhood Association and serves as Chair of the Preservation and Development Committee.
He enjoys camping and kayaking with his wife and son. He is known by many for his world famous hashbrowns and is organizer of the Orton Park Fest Jazz Brunch. He can sometimes be caught moonlighting at the Tip Top Tavern, serving fish fry and muddling a mean Old Fashioned.
Michael Carlson, Real Estate Broker
email@example.com (608) 213-3551
Michael comes to Solidarity Realty from an extraordinary background of bringing together people and housing – that is his passion. For 15 years, he has built, designed, developed, and acquired housing with families all over Madison and Dane County.
After building housing on site for seven years – five of those years, leading crews of young people at Operation Fresh Start – Michael was invited to join staff at Habitat for Humanity of Dane County. He was hired by Habitat to find building sites or homes for renovation, and then to figure out what to build for the families who would live there. Over the last eight years, Michael learned real estate by buying, developing, and selling properties for Habitat, then for the Madison Area Community Land Trust, and most recently for the Madison Community Cooperative.
Michael holds a Wisconsin real estate brokerage license and he knows residential home construction and design from the inside-out. But his qualifications don’t stop there. His easygoing personality puts clients at ease, and he listens carefully to their needs. Michael ‘s special passion is matching his buyers with the perfect house for their needs and lifestyle.
David Fawcett, Social Media Specialist, Right Hand Person
David Fawcett received his master’s degree in education here at the UW-Madison, escaped briefly to teach in San Francisco and later returned to live here in order to marry Darcy. While he works part-time as a public school teacher at Nuestro Mundo, Governor Walker has convinced him that is not enough — at least not enough for economic security — so he spends much of his time supporting the family business any way he can. He troubleshoots technology glitches and otherwise is responsible for keeping Solidarity Realty on the cutting edge of social media marketing. In addition, he basically does everything Darcy doesn’t have time to or can’t do — and he is always a friendly face to see around the office. David is particularly useful in the summer, and fortunately that turns out to be our busiest time!
