Austin, or Tex, to anyone who’s known him longer than 10 minutes, moved to Athens in 2003 to attend the University of Georgia where he met is wife Marissa. Although their careers took them away from Athens, Tex and Marissa always loved coming back to visit and moving back was always in the back of their minds.
After over a decade working in non-profit and moving their family thousands of miles across the county – multiple times, the Bagley’s (and everyone who had helped them move) decided it was time to settle down. As life long Dawg fans, lovers of music, and wannabe foodies, the Classic City was an easy choice when deciding where to plant roots.
Growing up with a father and grandfather in the residential building industry, Tex developed an understanding and love for home construction and remodeling. After college, he put his knowledge to use in Mexico building houses, orphanages, and schools along the border. After four years in Mexico, Tex came back to the States with a slight comprehension of the Spanish language and a heavy appetite for tacos! Since returning, the Bagley’s have renovated two personal homes, spoken broken Spanish to many people, and eaten hundreds of tacos.
Tex and his family live in the westside Kingswood subdivision, where they love getting together with neighbors and friends for BBQ’s and epic trick-or-treating. The Bagley’s have three children and are founding members of St. Thomas Anglian Church, where they attend and serve on a weekly basis. Dedicated to being a part of the community, Tex is also an Ambassador for the Athens Area Chamber of Commerce and helps to welcome new businesses to the area. The Bagley’s are part of the TRES family (Timothy Road Elementary School) and love being able to walk their kiddos to school.
With his eye for design, love of homes, and past building experience, Tex has a knack for finding and selling great homes. Tex has a passion for Real Estate and is committed to providing his clients with the best possible service. Call Tex for all your real estate needs (or if you just want to go grab some tacos)!
