Welcome to Rose King's Real Estate Blog! Here you'll find information about buying and selling houses in Texas. I post information about homes for sale in Friendswood, Pearland, League City, Alvin, Manvel, and the Houston Bay Area, as well as tips for buying or selling homes anywhere! I also post community news and market trends about neighborhoods throughout the Houston Bay Area and Galveston County. Sometimes I just like to blog about special memories or fun things. Thanks for stopping by!
