D'Agostino Companies was formed in 1961 in Baton Rouge, LA as R.J. D'Agostino
Realtor with the slogan, "We sell the earth". Many years later
this firm is still "selling the earth", and has expanded
its scope to include a broad spectrum of the industry including
land acquisition, design build construction of
commercial projects, commercial/residential development, leasing, and property management.
R.J. and Odette D'Agostino
included construction of residential homes in a broad price
range, schools, shopping centers, multifamily, office buildings, student housing,
restaurants, and industrial office/warehouses. The main focus has always
been the development of land to meet the needs of growing areas.
Our firm has made efforts to always offer bold new concepts
in the real estate market to meet the demands of the public.
In 1980, our first out of state office
was opened in Atlanta, Georgia focusing mainly on residential subdivision
development in South Atlanta to meet the needs of growth
in an area of Atlanta with virtually no new developments to offer.
The acquiring of commercial tracts for future development also
became paramount in our goals.
In 2000, D'Agostino Companies relocated its company headquarters to Conroe, TX but continued to maintain its office in Baton Rouge until 2003.
The economic climate, influx of people and pro-development attitude
of officials in the Houston metropolitan area and particularly in Montgomery County encouraged this move.
Our firm has always felt a tremendous need
to not only be active, but to give back to the community. From
its inception we have made a commitment to be involved in numerous
community organizations for the betterment of others. We also
encourage our employees to do the same, by allowing flexible schedules
to accommodate their commitment to family, church, and community.
For many years we have supported cancer research through our participation at Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center in Baton Rouge, LA and St. Jude Children's Research Center. D’Agostino Companies serves on the Board of Texas New Community/New Danville, a master planned self-sustaining community for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Our firm served as co-chairman for the New Danville House Raffle held in The Woodlands, Texas with all proceeds benefiting New Danville. D'Agostino Companies has been an underwriting sponsor as well as a commitment of 5 years to chair the Jazzy Junque (and other great stuff) Trash to Treasure sale benefiting New Danville. This major fundraiser generates over $50,000 per year, the required matching funds for New Danville's HUD Grant, providing for the residential housing program. More details about this community may be found by linking to www.newdanville.org.
