Fred Balda


Hillwood Communities 

As the president of Hillwood Communities, Fred Balda provides strategic leadership and oversees all aspects of operations within Hillwood Communities including acquisitions, design, and development. During his tenure at Hillwood, Fred has played an active role in the development of 89 master‐planned communities and 28,000 residential lots across 13 states and two countries. Because Hillwood Communities is recognized as one of the top residential development companies in the country, he'll be the first person to acknowledge that creating community is a complex and rewarding proposition that goes far beyond place and proximity.

Fred is continually expanding and redefining Hillwood Communities' business plan to satisfy ever changing homebuyer demands and market opportunities. He bases the foundation of each new community on the organization's Live Smart℠principles, which range from keeping the well‐being of future home buyers in mind to being good stewards of both the land and the environment. Of his division's accomplishments, Fred is particularly proud of Hillwood's community‐wide initiatives to support local charities like North Texas Food Bank, Building Homes for Heroes, and OperationFinally Home.
