Cindi Hagley was born and raised in Appalachia, and at age 10 she announced to her family that she was moving to the West Coast to work in television. It was a huge goal for a young girl who came from a family whose members never graduated high school – let alone go to college.
“I have no idea where that idea came from. I come from a family of farmers, miners, and railroad workers. But they supported me, and that goal became a reality.” She resigned from Disney/ABC in 2006.
Hagley attended The University of Akron, putting herself through school by working as on-air talent at a local radio station. She moved to the Bay Area in 1990 and enjoyed a successful career as a television executive, before leaving to pursue her real estate career.
Hagley credits her success in real estate with her broadcast sales training. “I’ve negotiated everything from the Super Bowl, to the Academy Awards, to New York Yankees Baseball with Fortune 500 Companies,” she says. ”The stakes are higher in real estate. My clients are trusting me with what is quite often the single largest asset they will ever own. That’s a lot of money, a lot of trust, and a lot of passion on my part to outperform my competitors and deliver a superior experience to my clients. If I don’t exceed expectations, then I have not done my job.”
In her spare time, she enjoys playing guitar and fiddle and performing with her band. She loves to hike, kayak, golf, and explore the world with family and friends.
A portion of Hagley’s income is donated to local non-profit organizations, where she frequently volunteers.
