Susan Nogues Broker/Owner
Ms. Susan Nogues has an award winning ‘entrepreneurial spirit’ and is detail-oriented, experienced, reliable, personable and educated. She has over 22 years of experience as an active licensed real estate professional, and is a second generation Texas Licensed Real Estate Broker, following her Mother, Lillian Nogues.
Ms. Nogues uses her proven marketing and management successes to effectively list, sell and manage property. As a key factor, she knows that marketing property means leveraging relationships and informing key people who deal with buyers, sellers, & landlords everyday that their unique property is available. She markets and communicates to these groups for her clients, as she is able to give a personal touch to their professional expectations.
Ms. Nogues earned her Bachelors of Business Administration (BBA) Degree/Marketing Major from Stephen F Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas (1992). She has been an active Texas Licensed Real Estate Agent, since launching her real estate career in Lufkin, Texas (1993).
In 1998, to get experience using her Marketing Degree in a ‘degree required’ employment, Ms. Nogues went to work for an East Texas based phone company, TXU Communications (TXUC). She received valuable corporate business experience, as she served as a Product /Project Manager. For four years, she developed and managed the life cycles and profitability of all of the phone company’s voice services; including cellular (resell GTE & SBC), voice mail (proprietary and SBC resale), and paging services (various resale). She managed sales profitability, the products for the Incumbent Local Exchange Carrier (ILEC), and also Texas resale markets as a Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC). Ms. Nogues also helped to bring Voice Mail service, trunked from the Conroe TXUC switch, to serve Round Rock’s Central Office (CO) in La Frontera. There were many technical, financial, trouble-shooting, management, training and security-levels of exposure and experience that helped to develop Ms. Nogues’ business skills – especially through Y2K and 9/11/01.
Ms. Nogues has been visiting the Bastrop area since 1972. In February 2003, she moved to the Bastrop County to follow her parents’ retirement back the area. By August of 2003, as a passion, Ms. Nogues opened up a well-loved store in Historic Downtown Bastrop. This store housed Texas Best Wines (Texas wine tastings, bottle & by-the-glass sales) and Iron Bridge Antiques (Antiques, collectibles, gifts, coffees & Blue Bell Ice Cream).
With the support of her many newly established personal and business relationships, in August 2005, Ms. Nogues decided to move 100% back into her real estate vocation. She founded Susan Nogues Real Estate, in Bastrop, where she assists Buyers, Sellers, Landlords and Tenants in their Real Estate needs. Her experience and personality really helps when negotiating and facilitating simple, or complex, Commercial/Residential Brokerage and Property Management transactions.

September 4th, 2011 marked the beginning of the historic Bastrop County Complex Wildfires that burned over 37,000 wooded acres. Because of the major economic and community impact of losing over 1,700 homes to fire in Bastrop County, Susan Nogues developed a plan to get people a vision to get back onto their properties and into their homes with the creation of the Bastrop County Expo: Building a Better Tomorrow. This Bastrop, Elgin Smithville Chamber of Commerce and Bastrop Economic Development Corporation sponsored event, November 19th, was held at the Bastrop Convention Center, approximately 60 days from its inception. It brought over 57 vendors, various subject matter expert speakers in break-out sessions, and a place where over 800 attending Bastrop County residents also received current updates from their officials, utility companies, and home owner associations. For this timely contribution to the community, February 2012, Ms. Nogues received a special Bastrop Chamber of Commerce Award for her Innovative Contribution after the September 2011 Complex Wildfires.
October 2011, while promoting the Bastrop County Expo, Ms. Nogues attended a meeting for the Bastrop County Long Term Recovery Committee. During her first meeting she became the elected Construction Management Chairman and served on the Board of Directors. Ms. Nogues managed finances and construction guidelines, and coordinated the rebuilding, and completion, of several homes. She also assisted with a reorganization, and creation of the 501c3 non-profit status, and bringing effective community members into the organization. After 9 months of service, June 2012, Ms. Nogues resigned from the Chair position to return back to Real Estate Brokerage full-time.
