DHK Development, Inc. was founded by Douglas H. Konopka in 1991. The company develops mixed-use communities and provides real estate consulting services to third party property owners. Taking advantage of a property’s character, Doug believes it important to create a community life style complementary to its natural environment and regional traditions.

Doug Konopka has developed and managed projects throughout the South from Texas to Georgia. The developments have included medium sized single-family neighborhoods, large master-planned communities, and both rural and urban undeveloped acreage parcels. They have ranged in size from ten commercial acres to over 1,000 residential acres.

Project Manager Noah Worley joined DHK Development, Inc. in 2005 and acts as a liaison between the numerous parties directly involved in the development process: land planners/landscape architects, engineers, municipal representatives, attorneys, contractors, homebuilders and homeowners’ association managers and residents. He assists in project feasibility analysis and land acquisition negotiations, and in the sale of developed lots and commercial acreage.

Philip Guyton joined DHK Development in early 2013 with a background in construction, real estate and project finance. As Chief Financial Officer for the company, his focus is building and managing the financial models and projections for projects.


  • The company does not develop "subdivisions" - it develops "communities." The word subdivision suggests that the entry and houses are the most important ingredients. Community implies that the residents are the most important.
  • A community will be successful because of a unified team effort. In addition to the developer, the team must consist of capable creative consultants, strong financial partners, and enthusiastic residents.
  • Find the most honest, creative and dedicated consultants for your team. Let them go wild with ideas, and then rein them in when necessary.
  • Successful communities are alive with simple but memorable events.
  • Every property has its own unique character. Preserve its natural environment and pay homage to its history.
