Chip & Joanna Gaines              

Owners of Magnolia Homes & Personalities on HGTV's "Fixer Upper"

Chip and Joanna Gaines are a couple and renovation duo based in Waco, Texas. The couple is best known for having their own show on HGTV called "Fixer Upper," where Chip and Joanna remodeled homes for families. The show lasted from 2013 to 2018, and still airs on the channel.

They are both Baylor graduates and proud to call Waco their home. Joanna opened up her local boutique in Bosque right after they got married in 2003. During that time, Chip was involved with real estate where he would buy, renovate, and sell homes to Baylor students and their parents. Chip had good instincts on the real estate side, and Joanna had an eye for design that could set the homes apart.

A couple years and a few children later, they watched both businesses merge into a creative compilation of construction with a heavy emphasis on quality and unique design. This is how Magnolia Homes evolved.

Chip still loves to buy and sell homes, and Joanna still keeps her retail passion alive; but now they have expanded their brand to residential and commercial remodeling, new home construction, a real estate company and the development of specialty neighborhoods and communities. Joanna also loves to write about remodeling, their farm and being a mom on her blog.

In 2017, they launched Hearth & Hand with Magnolia an exclusive home and lifestyle brand designed in partnership with Chip and Joanna sold exclusively at Target.

The Gaineses have lived in Waco for over 15 years. They have five children, and they enjoy working together with the same goal in mind: to work passionately making Waco more beautiful one project at a time.

After parting with HGTV in 2018, the couple announced that they would continue in the realm of television and would be starting their own lifestyle-focused media network for Magnolia.
