Robbie Hinrichs, Karen Yip

In the heart of Columbia, a city known for its charm and burgeoning growth, stands a couple who are not just life partners but also co-pilots of one of the city’s premier real estate ventures, Yip Premier Real Estate. Karen Yip and Robbie Hinrichs, both lifelong residents of Columbia, have infused their deep rooted love for their hometown into a business that’s as much about building community as it is about buildings themselves.

Karen, a Columbia native, and Robbie, who has shared a similarly deep connection with the city, have each dedicated over two decades to the real estate industry. Robbie’s journey began in the world of home construction, laying a solid foundation that would later merge with Karen’s expertise in real estate sales, a path she embarked on in 2003. Their combined experiences culminated in the establishment of Yip Premier Real Estate in 2013, a firm that quickly distinguished itself as a leader in the local market and the only Midlands firm to be named in Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate.

Beyond the bricks, mortar, and sales transactions, Karen and Robbie share a commitment to giving back to the community that has supported them. Their firm is set to expand, moving to a new office in historic Cottontown, a move that symbolizes their growth and forward looking vision. “There’s never been a more thrilling time to live and work in Columbia, a city on the rise!” says Karen, encapsulating the excitement and passion they both share for their city’s future.

Their story is more than a business narrative; it’s a testament to how a deep connection to one’s roots can foster success and contribute to the broader community, reflecting a blend of personal and professional dedication that resonates throughout Columbia.
