    Hi, I'm Jason Keeling , and I've put this website together so that people interested in either buying, selling, or renting a home would have an online resource to better help them understand the process. My specialty is Galveston Island, Texas and the surrounding areas. Why have I chosen this area for realty? Simply put, I love this place.

    When I first saw the pristine beaches, I immediately fell in love with Galveston. The gentle seas combined with gorgeous weather almost year-round is enough to transfix even the most stubborn vacationer. But what really sealed the deal for me was the island itself: her history, her people, and her beautiful houses. I knew that selling realty in the Galveston area would keep me busy and very happy.

    Why should you consider me as your REALTOR®? It's a good question, as there is a lot of competition out there. I consider myself down-to-earth and approachable, two essential qualities of any REALTOR. My clients understand that they can reach me at any time to talk about any problem, no matter how trivial. My job is to earn your approval, and I'll stop at nothing to get it.

    Friendliness is important, but so is price. I am relentless when it comes to negotiation--I don't consider a deal closed if my client is unhappy with the price. My business as a Galveston REALTOR is, first and foremost, to provide my clients with a positive home buying or selling experience. I want to forge a lasting relationship with you, so that if you would ever think of moving, you'd call me first. I'm not just selling Galveston, I'm here to stay. I'm Jason Keeling, and I aim to be your next REALTOR.

    As a native Galvestonian (BOI) the island has always been a special place for me. After graduating from Ball High School in 1991, I went to work for The San Luis Resort as the Condominium Concierge. While being a great opportunity to meet many interesting people who visit the island such as Al Gore, Hakeem Olajuwon, Charles Barkley, Francis Newman Moody, Ruth Harris Kempner and Mr. and Mrs. Hershey (chocolate) six generation descendants from Pennsylvania, I went off to Pharmacy school in South Dakota. Then I went to work for Rapid Regional Hospital Pharmacy and Pharmerica. While expanding my knowledge of Medicines I still yearn to be back home in Galveston, an island with its rich and colorful history.

    The next 15 years were very busy for me while filling prescriptions at Walmart Pharmacy at the same time I took on a management position with ABL MANAGEMENT at the Galveston County Sheriff Office.  During this busy period I began to invest in my future with real estate which peaked my interest. Now as a Texas Realtor I am able to pursue my passion for real estate and customer service in facilitating your buying and selling experience in a professional environment.  As a member of Galveston Board of Realtors and Houston Association of Realtors Multiple Listing Service with a plethora of properties, marketing and sales information readily available to me which I can use to help negotiate for you.  Weather you are in the market for residential, investment, commercial, vacation home located in Galveston or on the Mainland, I look forward in working with you on your real estate adventure.  Give me a call: (409) 877-2116.
