Originally from Minnesota, Hagel enlisted in the U.S. Navy at age 18, serving in the Office of Naval Research in Washington, D.C. and, later, the Strike Fighter Squadron 131 in Jacksonville, FL. Hagel holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing from the University of Phoenix (2006). He obtained his Florida Real Estate License shortly after graduating and began working with some of the Jacksonville area's top new home builders for the next 15 years, in which he was highly recognized for his achievements. Hagel then joined one of the most successful real estate teams on Amelia Island in 2011 to make the jump into residential sales from new construction. He obtained his broker's license and became a general partner in the brokerage. Hagel is pleased to be transitioning into working with the Watson team to be closer to his longtime customers focusing exclusively on sales. In his free time, Hagel loves to run and serves as President of Amelia Island Runners and Co-Director for Jeff Galloway Productions, Fernandina Beach Chapter, coaching running groups for men and women aspiring to run a full marathon.
