It seems like just yesterday we were opening our doors as a West End developer and home building business! ::cues up nostalgic music soundtrack:: More than 40 years later, here we are – a solid leader in Galveston real estate sales and a vacation rental company with the largest inventory of professionally managed vacation homes on the Island!
We are proud to be a family-run business with a talented staff of long-term employees with fresh ideas. As a team, we’ve moved from the days of a giant paper calendar and pencils to customized rental software and online reservation access for our guests and homeowners. From paper pamphlets to a fully loaded website, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ and now, a blog!
We ♥ hearing the history behind our guest’s visits to the Island and seeing many of the same faces each summer at our vacation homes. We are looking forward to sharing stories about our company and our team members with you in the coming months and years!
Galveston is a great beach community with awesome local restaurants, shops, and hidden gems; and we can’t wait to highlight some of our favorite island spots as well as those of our homeowners, vendors, and guests.
