Leave a Legacy
Chad Manes is a real estate professional and brand ambassador for Magnolia Realty and is based in Belton, Texas.
All my young life my Father preached a constant and consistent lesson to me and my older brothers and that was: “Work hard and everything else will fall into place”. Ever since my days of living under my parent’s roof and I have carried this lesson with me and still to this day am a firm believer that there is no substitution for hard work. It didnt matter what job I was working or what sport I was playing or practicing; I knew that any amount of talent could also be overcome if I just worked harder than anyone else around me. To me, this belief overflows into not only business, but into my relationships with my family friends and clients, my health and overall well being.
I have carried this motto into my real estate career. Today, this is what gets me up in the morning and gets me going. Each day, I start at zero and push myself as hard as I can go to 100% (or more). This way, I can truthfully and honestly tell everyone that I am working with that I am giving it everything I have. Whether its helping someone sell a home, look for a home to buy or invest in, marketing properties, communicating and negotiating with others; it doesnt matter to me. I am going to be giving it everything I possibly can to help my people achieve their goals.
I discovered my passion for real estate while working as both a leasing agent and property manager during my college years. A few years after finishing college, I was searching for a career where I could mesh my desire to help others with the ability to work as hard as I possibly could and be able to see the return in that hard work. This, as well as a fascination with homes and real estate in general, led me into the real estate world in 2013 in Austin, TX. Since starting in real estate, I have continued to grow my business every year. I aim to continually improve my ability to help home Sellers by staying on top of the best technology and trends within the industry to better serve my clientele.
Chad is a graduate of Texas State University, where he received a BA in Liberal Arts with a double major in Poli.Sci. and History.
Chad was invited to help start Magnolia Realty | The Holman Group at the end of 2017.
Outside of the office, you can find Chad spending time with his wife, Lindsay, and daughters, Juniper and Cora. When time allows, I also love spending time outdoors and you can often find him on the Texas coast honing his skills as a wade fisherman, at a live concert or watching a Longhorn's football game. He is also an active member of several non-profit organizations including: Alzheimer's Association(ALZ) and The Coastal Conservation Association(CCA).
