I live in Houston, TX and have been a flight attendant for 32 years. I inherited an interest in real estate from my father and after taking over his business I have been able to expand into Galveston. Since my desire is to live in Galveston full time in the future, I thoroughly enjoy spending my spare time on the island. Waking up to the sounds and smell of the Gulf of Mexico is not a bad place to be!

Why Tony chose Galveston
I have had a love of old houses since childhood and have renovated several in the last 15 years. While some would look upon an old beat up, boarded window house with horror, I see history and stories from the past. Bringing it up to date is a joy and a chance to keep Galveston's past alive.
