Texas Real Estate Legacy-in-the-Making: Father-Son Team of Rick and Matt Hopwood

FORTH WORTH, Texas, Oct. 22, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — After more than three decades of buying, selling and developing Fort Worth commercial property for some of the nation’s largest real estate businesses, Rick Hopwood is brokering a deal unlike any other in his career: a start-up firm with his son, Matt.

Mr. Hopwood has enjoyed notable success in the commercial real estate industry, working with developers, architects and lenders from local independent investors to the world’s largest pension funds. Yet, the opportunity to start a family-owned business doing what he loves, even after 35 years, seems to be the most valuable asset in his product portfolio. And, the beginning of a legacy…

“It came as a real surprise when Matt said he wanted to get into the commercial real estate business,” said Mr. Hopwood, President of the family’s Hopwood Commercial Real Estate Services. “And, he said who better than my father to teach me.”

Matt Hopwood, who joined the company as its Marketing Director, utilizes his years of expertise in operations and processes to deliver innovative and cost-effective solutions to the firm’s commercial real estate clients. The duo plans to work closely with tenants and investors in the Fort Worth and Dallas real estate markets.

“We discussed the ins and outs of working in commercial real estate for several months, before finally making the decision to start the firm,” said Rick. “This is something I have wanted to pursue for many years but never thought the timing was right until now.”

Hopwood RE currently represents many tenants large and small to secure office space in Fort Worth and the surrounding cities; and a Fortune 500 company on development of office/warehouse build-to-suite projects throughout the United States.
