Soon to be Real Estate Agent in Galveston, Texas

7 Replies

Hi! I am Timothy Church. I am 25 years old and live in Galveston, Texas. Currently I am employed as a manager at Gaido's Seafood Restaurant, but am currently in the process of obtaining my real estate license. I am interested in buy and hold investments in my area. I hope to be able to build up enough properties that I can use the cash flow to support my family so that I might open my own local distillery. I am in the process of purchasing my first investment single family home as well as looking into a 6-unit apartment building using investor financing. I am just starting my journey but I am excited to see where it leads me!

Welcome to the site.  We live on the next island over from Galveston, near Surfside Beach.  I will be anxious to see how your investing goes In Galveston.  Lots of potential there I think!

Hey Timothy, I'm Karlsen and welcome to the forum.  I am also 25 years old, live on Galveston Island, and am interested in buy and hold properties.  I currently only own a quadplex in the East End historical district but am seeking to aquire more similar properties.

Hi Timothy!

Welcome to the page. It is a great forum to connect all over and gain lots of experience from others! 

Good luck as an Agent as it is a very rewarding job different to hospitality ( I went a similar path). I hope that you meet your goals as fast as possible!

Best of luck!

I am actually closing on my first investment single family home on Oct 21 and plan on going to the sheriff sale in a few days to see how that works on the island. I even already have renters lined up and ready to move in to the property!
