About Bill Salario

My name is Bill Salario , and my partner is Donald Tomek. We both live and work in Houston, but are Islanders every chance we get! Donald (Bachelor of Industrial Technology, University of Houston 1976) had his own HVAC company for 16 years, before following his dream of buying and renovating old homes in the inner city Houston neighborhood of The Heights. He became a realtor in 2001, and a broker in 2008 (Donald Charles Properties).

I am a landscape designer in Houston (bachelor Landscape Architecture, LSU 1984), and recently closed my design/ build/ maintenance business in February, 2016, after 28 years. I now provide consulting services (William Salario Design, Inc.). I have also pursued an interest in home renovation/ restoration, with a focus on the total package of architecture, interior design, and garden.

Galveston has an unbelievable stock of historic homes, with an assortment of architectural styles to appeal to many tastes. We purchased our first home in 2006, a Craftsman bungalow , and completely updated it. We proceeded to purchase and renovate 4 additional homes (3 after hurricane Ike).

We take pride in letting the uniqueness of each property dictate the style and direction of the restoration. Our goal is to provide a comfortable, relaxing setting for our guests. We also believe that the city's historic charm is Galveston's best feature, and are determined to capture that quality in the presentation of our properties.

As dog owners, we also know how important it is to find hospitable accommodations for our pets when traveling. Needless to say, all of our properties are dog friendly!

Bill Salario purchased this house in 2009

Beautiful home, Great Location, A Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

If you like details like ten foot ceilings and transom windows you will enjoy this beautifully renovated home. It has loads of charm with all the modern amenities; no kitsch here. The tasteful decor was appreciated. Also, a great location; we enjoyed the walk to the nearby cafe and bakery. We will return.
