Ryson Real Estate was founded in 2006, and shortly after invested in a vacation rental condo of their own. This experience encouraged Ryson to create their own vacation rental division, as Ryson felt there was an opportunity to excel in the property management industry, and the Ryson Vacation Rental division was born.
With the marketing expertise of the owner, Jason Keeling, a Texas A&M University graduate, Ryson was quickly able to turn their first vacation rental property into a success, and now staff manages well over 200 vacation rental properties on Galveston Island. Soon, friends and clients were asking Ryson to manage their properties as well, and Ryson began growing almost immediately.
Ryson continues to strive to be not only the best, but to be the market leader for vacation rentals on Galveston Island and a great place to work. Ryson Vacation Rentals is an award-winning company. Ryson Vacation Rentals is regularly nominated for Best Resort Rental Company by Galveston.com and the Galveston Chamber of Commerce for Small Business.
Ryson is committed to the island’s community and is involved in many local and regional charities, and is an active member of the Galveston Chamber of Commerce, Chamber C-Crewe, Galveston Association of Rental Managers (GARM), the Galveston and Texas chapters of the Hotel Lodging Association, the Certified Tourism Ambassador program, the International Vacation Rentals Managers Association (VRMA), and the Better Business Bureau (BBB).
Ryson is proud to provide an economic benefit to our local community, as Ryson team now consists of around 50 full-time employees and part-time contractors, of which almost all live in Galveston County, right here on Galveston Island, and Ryson has generated over a million dollars in Hotel Occupancy Tax (HOT) revenue, which support the tourism industry and the local economy.
Ryson Real Estate and Vacation Rentals is committed to getting better and better every year, and we look forward to continuing our story with all of our new friends and clients.
