PROPERTY MANAGER

My name is Sean Bagley and I am excited to start this next step of my life by working at 29 Acres. I have been in the education the past 29 years as a teacher, coach and for the last 15 years as an administrator. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of North Texas and my Masters degree in Educational Administration from Texas Women’s University. The reason I got into education was because of the relationships I experienced with my teachers and coaches in high school. That experience shaped my belief that relationships are one of the most important things that matter in peoples lives. Even though my job title is Property Manager, I plan on being involved with all of our residents as much as possible as we work to plan out many of the events that will occur in our 29 Acres Community.
