AFTER AN EXTRAORDINARY half-decade for H-Town — multiple once-in-a-lifetime weather events, a World Series win, an epic pandemic and much more — independently published, proudly all-local Houston CityBook marks five years in print this fall. With the gracious support of Deutsch Fine Jewelry, which has appeared as an advertiser on the back cover of every single issue, we look back at our take on the glamour, grit, style and substance of the most fascinating city in America.

Duos, Trios and Teams: ‘Next-Generation’ Mother-Daughter Leppert Duo Debuts

Clare Leppert and Clementine, the Cavachon. Leigh Leppert and Benny, the Bernedoodle.

HOW DID YOU come together as a team? This fall, we are celebrating the introduction of an exciting real estate collaboration between Clare Leppert, longtime Houston Realtor®, and daughter Leigh Leppert. Clare shared a 20+ year real estate partnership with her mother, Bette Carpenter, until Bette’s death in 2016. Having worked solo for several years, Clare in 2021 was awarded Houston Business Journal’s No. 2 Luxury Realtor® in Houston. Leigh, who has been working in marketing for the past decade, has always shared a passion for real estate and watched Clare successfully balance family and career. We are excited to re-create the next generation of a mother-daughter duo at Compass!
