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!

Well, today we closed on that house, and guess who bought it – the buyers with the dog!   Some people thought it was pretty crazy to allow the potential buyers to bring their dog over to try out the stairs and the space, but I was wi...
