Ryson Real Estate & Vacation Rentals Announces 15 Year Anniversary Celebration

April 26, 2021

Ryson Vacation Rentals, the market leader for vacation rentals and industry-leading property management company on Galveston Island, are celebrating 15 successful years of growth, exceptional service, and award-winning achievements.

Jason Keeling founded Ryson Real Estate in 2006 and, after investing in one vacation rental condo, the company quickly expanded to include a vacation rental and property management division earning Ryson regular nominations over the years for “Best Resort Rental Company” on Galveston Island.

Galveston, TX issued stay-at-home orders on March 23, 2020, and the impact was felt throughout the vacation industry. Ryson’s vacation rentals struggled initially but by May 2020 it had clearly become the best year Ryson had experienced across most of their properties. An unexpected but welcomed side-effect of COVID-19 experienced across many vacation rental markets in the US.

“It really was the rise of vacation rentals” said Liz Overton, CEO of Ryson

Ryson Vacation Rentals manage over 240 vacation homes on Galveston Island with high-end amenities, an exclusive concierge to plan your stay, free and discounted attraction tickets, special occasion packages, and luxury in-home services. Their collection of properties ranges from luxury villas with private pools and canal-side docks to classic bungalows in the historic district to truly live like a local. If you can dream it, Ryson do their best to make it happen!

Ryson’s team of professionals includes a Property Acquisition Specialist to offer top-of-the-line market expertise to potential homeowners entering the vacation rental market and a property management team that manages over 170 long-term rental properties in Galveston.

The Playground of the Texas Gulf Coast

Galveston Island is a charming, historic beach town only one hour from Houston, TX. Enjoy easy social distancing with 32 miles of beaches, the wide-open spaces of Galveston Island State Park, and endless natural attractions for the entire family. Interact with alligators, birdlife, and sea turtles and explore the six historic districts with restaurants, antique shops, museums, and galleries. Family fun does not get better than this! Keep the kids entertained for hours on end at the water parks, lazy rivers, thrilling rides, aquariums, and carousels. Ryson Vacation Rentals offers a variety of complimentary activities for their guests.

The Year of Togetherness

While 2020 saw a rise in rentals for Ryson, it was a year of stay-at-home orders and separation for many families. Ryson is not only celebrating their 15th anniversary but is branding 2021 as “The Year of Togetherness”, a time to bring vacationing families and Ryson’s extended family of team members and homeowners closer together.
