This is where it all starts. The journey of creating spaces you love—where you can grow, rest, and belong—all begins with finding home. Founded by Chip and Joanna Gaines in 2007, Magnolia Realty was born out of the belief that home isn’t just a handful of walls, but the very place where you become who you were made to be. For us, home is the most important place on Earth. 

Magnolia Realty is a full-service brokerage equipped to assist you in your buying and selling journey from start to finish. Our team leads with kindness and generosity, acting as a guide so that you can begin this process with confidence. Each of our agents is experienced, invested in their community, and ready to go the extra mile in helping you find a home that will serve the season you’re in and tell your story. We are available in cities across Texas, including Waco, Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, and Temple/Belton.

We believe in home, and this is where your journey in finding it begins. We can’t wait to embark on this new adventure with you.

"We believe in doing work that we love and, in choosing that, nudging others towards doing what they love. We believe in cartwheeling past our comfort zones and doing something a little bit scary every day." -- Magnolia Manifesto. Everyone knows real estate agents help people find and sell houses. It sounds simple. But a house is more than just shelter. It’s home -- where our families connect, grow, and thrive together. It’s where we meet our neighbors that become like family and where we find the community around us that bands together when times get tough. I love that I can be an ambassador for this community. Often times, I am the singular first person someone knows when they move here. It's good work. It's important work. That's why I love doing it. Nothing worth doing is easy, but I LOVE the opportunity to serve families well. "Wherever God has put you, that is your vocation. It is not what we do but how much love we put into it.” -St. Teresa of Calcutta

Jared Hartmann


License Number: 656147

Family is everything to me. So, six years ago when I became a real estate professional, I did it so that I could better serve my family. My previous career as a musician with the platinum band Flyleaf required me to be on the road, out of the state, and often out of the country very frequently. I loved what I was doing but I missed my home. All of the travel that I experienced solidified to me that Central Texas is the place that I want to call home and raise my family. As a Temple, TX native, I know there is so much to appreciate about this area and I love helping people discover reasons to love this community like I do. Walking alongside families during their home buying and selling journey has become a great passion of mine; and, I am committed to listening to my clients' needs, providing the best no-pressure service, and exceeding expectations. In the midst of everything that is going on in the world today, I'm more and more aware of the fact that home and family is everything. And, I'm thankful for each day that I get to wake up and help others find homes to make memories in and cherish with the ones they love.

Terry Poyser


License Number: 643450

I'm a native Texan but raised a Military Brat, so where Texas is my home, I have moved around the world many times. I have 2 beautiful daughters and one son. Growing up watching my parents (mostly my mom) pack, move, and re-establish us, I learned to appreciate how much was involved with that. I suppose that is where my passion for real estate started. I want to make that transition easy and fun. I love joking around, golfing, and spending time with my family (we are big BBQ'ers), but when it comes to my business and your move…that, I take seriously. Let's do this!!!
