Hopkins and Heinrich established the Northeast Market Center of Austin-based Keller Williams Realty in 1994. They moved the business into its current location at 20665 Lake Houston Parkway in Kingwood in 1997.

“Transitioning from majority owners to investors has been our goal for the past couple of years,” stated Mark Heinrich.  “Judy and I are so happy to have Michael, Jason, Donna and Roland step up and take the reins of the office that we have built and loved for the past 18 years.”

Clapp will continue in his role as General Manager/Team Leader of the Keller Williams Northeast office, adding Broker of Record to his title. He began his real estate career at Keller Williams Northeast where he was a Top Producer from 1998 to 2002. He then moved into management as Team Leader followed by General Manager, overseeing Keller Williams Northeast, Spring and The Woodlands market centers until August of 2012.

“This is a dream come true for me,” exclaimed Clapp.  “My parents moved to Kingwood in 1971 when there was just a single stop sign on Kingwood Drive. The growth of our area over the past 40 years has been phenomenal and the future continues to look bright for Houston and our northeast communities.”
