Our Keys To Success

Ryson Real Estate and Vacation Rentals is one of Galveston’s leading vacation rental companies, featuring more than 200+ properties on Galveston Island. Established in 2006, Ryson Real Estate and Vacation Rentals has been an industry-leading property management company on Galveston Island for over 12 years. What’s our secret? Our meaningful and trust-based relationships with our client owners, and our top-of-the-line market expertise that will make your investment worthwhile.

The Ryson Difference

Our management fee is competitively priced. We arrange for all cleanings to be made after stays, handle the towels and linens, as well as provide maintenance service. Our inspector goes into every property after it has been cleaned before the new guest arrives to ensure the cleaner did their job properly. He/she also checks for damages, makes sure all doors and windows are closed, the thermostat is set at a reasonable temperature, etc.

Our owners have the capability to log into our software system to view their property calendar, previous owner statements and block owner stay dates. Owners are allowed to stay at their property anytime of the year. Email notifications are also sent out each time a reservation is made.

Loved & trusted by owners

Here are some things that our property owners have had to stay about our property management services:

"When we decided to buy a second home in Galveston, we knew we wouldn’t be able to effectively manage the vacation rentals we planned on booking from 5 hours away.  We therefore did some extensive research and after careful consideration, we decided on Ryson Real Estate and Vacation Rentals.  From the moment we met with Christine to discuss our contract we knew we had made the right decision.  And the staff at Ryson?  We cannot say enough good things about how supportive they are and how they treat our home like it’s their own.  They market our property on several sights and ensure we get maximum exposure.  We are pretty demanding clients but the staff has always been there to help us in all our efforts.  They are quick to answer our questions and take care of our renters to ensure their experience is truly amazing.  Amy and Tausha are just two of the staff that deserve a mention for their efforts.  Brian and the repair staff make sure everything is in tip top shape and even perform an annual deep dive review of our home to bring to our attention anything they find that needs to be fixed and then work quickly to repair. We thank Ryson for the great relationship and look forward to many more years of vacation rentals. "

"I have had the pleasure and privilege of partnering with Ryson Real Estate and Vacation Rentals since 2008. I’ve owned several properties in Galveston and Ryson has been a great real estate company to handle my property purchases and handle my vacation rentals. I’ve been approached by many other companies in this industry but I know from being a Texas native and property owner in the area for many years that since Ryson has been in business that it is the most professional and customer and client focused real estate and vacation rental company on the Texas Gulf Coast. The staff treats owners like family and takes care of my condo just as they would their own personal home. Ryson is great at marketing, advertising, promoting and keeping my condo maintained, professionally cleaned and booked throughout the year. I wouldn’t do business with anyone else on The Island. Once you’ve got the best, Ryson Vacation Rentals, then you don’t need to rest! "

- Joe C. - Absolute Paradise at The Dawn Condos

"I have been very happy with Ryson's service over the past seven years. I used a different management company previously and the difference is night and day. First off, the office personnel are extremely polite and helpful. The few times there have been issues they have contacted me and asked me how I wanted it handled. I have always received a quick response to any question I have had and it is easy to get hold of any department. They are very savvy on getting my property out on several websites as well as connecting with travel agents. This has led to my property being booked a lot. They are also experts at how to price the property and changing prices depending on the time of year. The maintenance department is also good at resolving issues quickly and doing minor repairs for a very reasonable price. They always check with me if it is something major and have contacts with many trades to handle any situation The website is user friendly and I am always paid on time. Overall I would give Ryson and A+ rating "
