New Construction


Click here to see our growing new construction portfolio. With nearly three decades of custom home building and real estate development on our resume, we are one of the great survivors of the recent home building bust. Our foresight and financial strength have us positioned to focus on the opportunities of the present. As the market continually changes, we have been proactive to change with it to offer select buyers lucrative real estate investment opportunities.

Custom Homes

Kathcon Development builds many styles of quality custom homes. Whether it’s French country, Victorian, or a more contemporary design, we have the expertise to build a home that fits your lifestyle and personal tastes. While keeping the integrity of the community and its surroundings in mind through the development stage, Kathcon ultimately delivers a home of unique distinction.

We recognize the vision of today’s homebuyers who desire residences with unique personalities that incorporate impressive facades and entrance foyers, spacious kitchens with gathering areas, great-rooms with custom fireplaces, master bedroom suites with luxurious baths, and English or walk-out basements.

We also recognize that in today’s market a truly custom designed home may vary greatly in size and amenities, and we cater to our clients individual budgets, square footage requirements and style they envision for their family.

The other side of the equation includes our hand-picked subcontractors and suppliers who build to our specifications using high quality materials and detailed craftsmanship throughout.


The “tear down” market is currently rich with opportunity; and the choices to purchase an ideal property, sometimes under market value, are vast. At Kathcon Development we believe in win/win solutions for both sellers and buyers.

For the seller, Kathcon’s RECOUP program offers expanded marketability and commission rebates paid to the seller after the sale, unlike any other traditional real estate program offered in Illinois.

For the buyer, our 30+ years of expertise of qualifying select properties in sought after Chicago area neighborhoods offer a potential greater return on investment over time. Our in-depth knowledge of the real estate market, new construction best practices and excellent customer service skills affords our customers a pleasurable experience and superior product.

Our team has identified select properties located in some of Chicago’s most desired suburban neighborhoods that not only offer excellent curb appeal, but are all priced to sell. Click here to see available properties.

We’re proud to offer our sellers RECOUP, a specialized program that enables us to market properties on three different price points, depending on how the land will ultimately be used. Learn more here.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all your assistance in helping to finish and market the executive homes in Lincolnshire, Illinois. Your expertise and professionalism on a difficult and problematic construction project was extremely helpful. I valued your insight and cost-efficient suggestions to completing the project and your pro-active stance with the local governing authorities was especially beneficial in enabling us to proceed without delay and with their cooperation. I would not hesitate to recommend you and your firm for future work in this arena. My best wishes to you in future endeavors and I will always consider you a valuable resource to completing, rehabbing and marketing REO properties. Sincerely,

I have been and am currently involved in several investments with Kathcon Development (and Greg Miller) that have been proven again and again to be solid projects with returns greater than promised or anticipated. Kathcon works tirelessly to insure a fine product that outshines similar priced competitors' homes. As an example; we were co-owners of a speculative home in Antioch, Illinois with Kathcon and because that home did not sell immediately, Kathcon volunteered to rent the home, then used it as a model. In doing so Kathcon not only covered our holding costs, but reduced them because of the model home provision in the property tax law.

I have always found Kathcon to be trustworthy and fair in all its dealings with me, my husband, and several family members who have purchased homes through and from Kathcon. As Kathcon grows, so does our portfolio. That is how we could afford to build several new homes over the years for our family with Kathcon. If you have any questions about my experiences with Kathcon, please do not hesitate to call 847 987 6127.

First national Bank of Illinois has recently used the services of Kathcon Real Estate Services, Inc., in selling a custom home in Lincolnshire, Illinois that was incomplete after the (defunct) builder declared bankruptcy and walked away from the property. We unfortunately needed to sell this property as an unfinished home with the hopes of finding a buyer that saw it's potential and wanted to complete the home to their specifications. This was a low 7 figure deal which FNBI offered part of the financing.

We signed a listing contract with Kathcon who also had a home listed next door to our property in the hopes that they could be competitive and could show both homes to prospective buyers. They immediately listed (and marketed) the home in the local MLS area as well as the southern Wisconsin market and within two or three weeks (Kathcon) provided us with a perfect match from a couple who were moving from the Minneapolis to the greater Chicago area. We encountered numerous negotiation concerns, and Kathcon walked through all of them with both the buyer and our bank. We were very satisfied with their services and would recommend them to others.
