Magnolia will open two new franchise branches in Grapevine and Granbury, marking the firm’s seventh and eighth offices to open in Texas. The company opened its first North Texas office in Argyle in 2017, only 10 years after the company was officially founded.
Since its humble beginnings, the residential brokerage firm has garnered a frenzy of media attention and notoriety, which has aided its expansion into the DFW area. To date, Magnolia has about 34 residential realtors working in North Texas, according to the company’s website.
The grand opening of Magnolia’s Grapevine location will be held on November 3 at 128 E. Texas St. The Grapevine branch will be run by franchise co-owners Theresa and Justin Mason and Will and Leslie Woods, all of whom are current realtors with Magnolia.
The Granbury office, located at 622 E. Pearl St., will have its grand opening the following day, November 4. Wendy Rape, a franchisee and broker with half a decade’s experience with the firm, will lead the new Granbury office.
“We are excited to be in the new office location and ready to serve the Granbury community,” Rape said. She added that the firm’s agents are customer and client-focused in everything they do.
The company has realtors in multiple cities across Texas, including Waco, Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, and Temple/Belton. The opening of a Grapevine location is an exciting prospect for co-founder Chip Gains, who graduated from Grapevine High School and whose sister, Shannon Braun, sits on the school board for Grapevine-Colleyville ISD
Magnolia considers its brand as a one-stop shop for residential and lifestyle needs. Besides the massive success gained through Fixer Upper, the company and its founders have developed a considerable portfolio of accomplishments: The Gaines have developed and opened coffee shops and restaurants, launched their own magazine, partnered with Target and Anthropologie for a décor collection, and much more.
