In 2011, Lance and Karina Loken founded The Loken Group, a residential real estate team within the Keller Williams franchise. Their mission was to create a company that would inspire a positive, lasting impact with their team members, their clients, their community and within the real estate industry.
One key to the team’s success is creating and fostering a strong culture. Since opening their doors almost 10 years ago, they have grown to over 80 team members and have been nominated numerous times in the Houston Business Journal’s Best Places to Work awards, including winning first place three times (2015, 2017, and 2018).
In 2016, they established TLG Gives (the philanthropic arm of The Loken Group) to help deserving families and individuals in the Greater Houston area in times of need. Past projects have included home renovations, such as making one home more ADA compliant, and Angel Tree, which provides families and individuals who have experienced hardships with support and gifts during the holiday season.
The Loken Group has also amassed performance-based accolades, including being recognized as the No. 1 large residential real estate team in Houston (ranked by 2019 sales volume and units by the Houston Business Journal), No. 1 in the world in non-expansion group volume and units by Keller Williams Realty International, and the No. 1 large real estate team in the country by REAL Trends + Tom Ferry The Thousand.
