Testimonials from our Clients

Sommer was our real estate representative for a recent purchase in Galveston. She was professional and knew her stuff! We were very pleased with Sommer assisting us in this purchase. We would definitely recommend her, and we would use her again for any other real estate transactions! Thank you, Sommer D. Bohannan
My wife and I used Melaine Anderson to represent us in the sale of our high rise condominium in Galveston. Melaine is a professional in every sense of the word, and she and her team are very pleasant to work with. She has a thorough understanding of the values in the Galveston real estate market.  Melaine's common sense and business judgment enable her to maximize the value of what you're selling or appropriately value what you're trying to buy. We highly recommend Melaine Scott Valby

Sommer sold a Condo for us at the Galvestonian and did a awesome job! She went to the owners monthly meeting to keep us up to date on any changes that were going on. She was very knowledgeable on what the market around us was doing. She did a fantastic job making our unit look good on the  listing. She communicated with us very well and easy to get a hold of if we had any questions. We had a confusing window assessment pending and she was able to help us negotiate a fare price with the buyer. If you are looking for a realtor in the Galveston area that is on top of her game I would call Sommer. J. Saldivar
Anderson Realty sold our home in less than 30 days. Melaine priced our home perfectly for the market and after tough negotiations (multiple buyers made offers) we received the price we were hoping for. Anderson kept us informed throughout the sales process, were quick to respond to all of our  questions, and assisted us through the somewhat complicated closing Dion Marsh
In early March 2019 I signed a listing agreement with Melaine Anderson. Two days later she had presented me with a contract of sale which was $36,000 Above my asking price. Less than two weeks later even with the fact that there was third-party financing involved the transaction was closed and funded. In my 75 years of buying and selling residential real estate I have never had service in such a timely manner. Melaine and her staff are far above the rest of the real estate agents in the Galveston area.. She is great, fantastic, and wonderful if you are looking to list or buy property in the Galveston area you can't get any better than Melaine. Gregory Gregg
Sommer is a terrific person to work with. Quick to respond and a great communicator along the way as we searched for just the right property. She knows Galveston quite well, and was always ready to provide info when we had questions. She has been quite patient with us as we sought out a variety of homes, and in the end we are thrilled with our choice, and the final outcome of the purchase. A good realtor also provides support in the weeks between signing and closing, and Sommer was available and helpful the entire time. We highly recommend Sommer as your realtor for buying or selling property in Galveston. B. Allison
Melaine Anderson sold my town home in the Memorial Villages area. She is a pleasure to work with and helped with every step of the process. When it came to scheduling and prepping the home for sale, Melaine and her assistant went above and beyond my expectations. I would recommend this professional and her company to all.  M. Becker
Sommer was always attentive to the details and responded to all questions quickly. Having done dozens of real estate deals before this was one of the easiest and smoothest I have done. Thank you Sommer and Texas Coastal Realty. B. Nemzin
Best realtor ever !!! She is so attentive to every detail and works day and night for you! Can't find a better realtor in Galveston ! She lives , works, and plays in Galveston and knows everyone in the city ! Carl C.
Sommer was very patient with us as we asked our many questions in finding our new vacation home. We would stop by her office without an appointment and she would always make time for us. When we did find our new vacation home, she helped us sell our existing condo. Sommer worked hard to get it sold quickly and for a good price! She worked hard and gave it her all on both the buying and selling for us! Donna & LeRoy P.
Melaine Anderson listed and sold our home in just a few days. Through her excellent negotiation skills, we received more than what we were asking for the property. Her team is top notch and we would highly recommend them.

Melaine and her team were such a dream to work with. She was always accessible, knowledgeable and professional in helping my wife and I in finding and purchasing the perfect condo for us at Palisade Palms. This was one of the best real estate experiences we have ever had. Thank you so much, Melaine for a perfect transaction and for being just a FUN person to be around..... Danny & Barbara C.
Sommer did an incredible job marketing our Galvestonian condo, succeeded in negotiating a price we were very happy with and overcoming numerous obstacles encountered with the buyer ability to get to a closing. We now have another property in Sommer's hands as a result of her great attitude and hard work. Bobby & Judith S.
Melaine Anderson and her staff, are prompt, efficient and knowledgeable. They are great at staging and frequent open-houses to make the most of the listing. Highly recommended for buying and selling. P. Rohan
Sommer Fisher is such a positive and energetic person. She keeps your goals and aspirations front and center going forward. I found it easy to work with her. Sommer listens and is never too busy to respond to your needs or questions. I can't imagine finding a better real estate agent than Sommer Fisher! A. Fretty
Melaine looked at all kinds of properties until she found the one we liked the best. Unfortunately, we were outbid. Then she continued the search until she actually found a better fit. She helped make arrangements for renting and the mortgage and took us step by step through the contract process. She is knowledgeable, has great integrity and certainly knows the territory. My highest recommendation! JP Mandel
Sommer was very proactive and communicated what she was doing to sell my property. Once an offer was received, she managed every step of the process to insure everything went as it should. D. Oliver
Melaine Anderson knows everything "Palisade Palms." Her staff is also on site for any and all questions. She helped us with buying 2 homes and selling one - all at Palisade Palms. She is efficient and the utmost professional. P. Rohan
Sommer is always cheerful and responsive, a real joy to work with. We had many questions and she always got the answers. We really appreciate how she let us work through the process and kept us informed along the way as we figured out what we wanted to do. We highly recommend her as a realtor. B. Allison
Melaine and her firm, Texas Coastal Realty, have been associated with our condo buildings from inception and literally have a granular knowledge of all aspects of the facilities and operations. As a result their effectiveness is unmatched on the island. Melaine and her team are very easy to work with and, to my knowledge, are the most effective agents on the island. I strongly recommend them for your consideration. J. Howard
Outstanding service and knowledge of the market and industry in general. Her office went above and beyond to make the sale happen. Her office kept us informed of all activity regarding our condo as well the market. They ensured our unit was prep, clean and completely secured during and after each showing. A. Garcia
Melaine and LeeAnn did an outstanding job selling our condo. They handled every aspect of our sale—listing, showing and finally turning over the keys to the new owner. While our unit was listed, we received updates weekly letting us know what potential buyers thought of our unit and their comments and recommendations were priceless. This was the easiest listing, sale, and closing that we have experienced whether selling, refinancing or purchasing property. Thank you, Melaine, for a great, hassle free experience! Dr. C. Campbell
Carmen was so helpful! I have never been to Galveston and I called Carmen, told her what I wanted in a home and area. That day she had sent me options and scheduled tours. She found the one I wanted and made the paperwork so easy! Carmen was an amazing find and I’m so happy at my new place:)! Thank you Carmen!! T. Alford
Melaine and her colleagues provided excellent service, market representation, and overall excellent realtor experience. Thank you for the pleasant transaction. Ryan W.
Melaine handled the sale of our condo with great skill. She definitely knew the market and had excellent contacts. The condo was sold within a short time, and we got the price she originally indicated as likely. We would use her again for anything in her area and consider her a friend. Bob G.
Melaine was very helpful in the whole process of selling our condo, no matter how big or small our concerns were about selling, her advice was perfect. She always kept us up to date on viewing activity and progress as well as presenting the property very well. We would certainly use Melaine again if we were buying or selling another property. Pat Broadhead
Melaine knows the Galveston area. She found the perfect buyer for our condo, and the deal was finalized in about 2 weeks with both the buyer and us being completely satisfied. During the period of her representation she was easily accessible and helpful although we were traveling at that time. Her staff was accommodating as to scheduling showings when we were in or out of the unit. I would recommend her without hesitation. Merle B.
We had a very good experience in selling our condo. It wasn't on the market long. Melaine certainly knows the property well. All negotiations went very smoothly and expertly. Pat B.
Melaine is very knowledgable and professional, she did a great job with a market analysis and potential buyer profile. Once we had an offer she worked very diligently between us and the buyer on outstanding issues in the contract. She also did a very good job with helping us dispose of some items in our place with the new owner. Don S.
Melaine was very responsive, knowledgeable, and helpful to my wife and I as we purchased a Condo in Galveston. I have purchased multiple homes throughout my career and Melaine provided the most professional and informative support. Would use her firm again in Houston and Galveston!

NewberryGary2 Gary N.

Very responsive and professional in working with Melaine. It's hard to find agents to return calls promptly and truly believe they are working for you and only you. This was my experience. She made it easy!

Scott Tiras

Melaine helped us stage our home so that buyers would see its best potential. She was easy to work with, knew her market and brought us a great buyer. We will be using Melaine Anderson's firm in the future.

MarxKate2 Kate Marx

Melaine assisted us with the purchase of two properties, one of which wasn't even on the market. She is easy to work with, and she has encyclopedic knowledge of Galveston Island and the highrise community. I highly recommend her as the most capable real estate agents that I've ever worked with.

Frankfort M. Frankfort

I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Melaine on the sale of a condominium in Galveston, Texas. Melaine and her entire staff were friendly, professional, and very competent. In fact, she sold the unit on a Friday, and we closed the following Thursday - one week later!!! She was involved in the entire process to make certain everything went as planned. I can honestly say that she made me (the seller), and the family who bought the unit satisfied customers - which is NOT an easy job to accomplish. I strongly recommend Melaine Anderson and Texas Coastal Realty.

Bandini F. Bandini

Melaine and her team at Texas Coastal Realty did an outstanding job selling my condo in Palisade Palms. They were extremely helpful and were able to complete the entire process without me having to be present. In fact, they handled every aspect of my sale-- from decorating and preparing my condo for showings to turning over the keys to the new owner. I didn't have to do a thing! I really appreciated how friendly and easy they were to work with and I was pleased with the price that they were able get for my unit. I highly recommend Melaine and Texas Coastal Realty team for your real estate needs.

Michael Ciaravino Michael Ciaravino MD

Melaine is an excellent realtor and a pleasure to work with. Very knowledgable about Galveston in general and the Palisade Palms in particular. She sold my condo and was always on top of the process before, during and even followed up after. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy/sell or just find out about where the market is these days.

M. Bernstein

As recent seller of 35 acres of oceanfront land in Galveston, TX we would like to most heartily recommend Richard Anderson and Texas Coastal Realty. Richard obtained a buyer and guided a complex escrow through to a sale. His extensive experience in construction management, contracts, real estate, finance, etc. has proven extremely valuable in closing our transaction. His professional approach and honesty make him the most capable and respected agent I have dealt with in 45 years of real estate and finance in Texas and California. Frank Schaefer
My wife and I purchased a unit at the Palisade Palms utilizing Melaine and her firm to handle the transaction for both parties and found her and her staff to be courteous,very knowledgeable and responsive and would not hesitate to use her again. Additionally, we recently used the rental services of Texas Coastal Realty to rent a unit at Palisade Palms for a family gathering and once again were pleased with the professionalism exhibited by the staff. L. Cherry
We have purchased 2 condominiums at Palisade Palms and leased one of the units through Melaine. We have had an easy time working with Melaine on all 3 transactions. Melaine is very knowledgeable and provided us all of the information we needed to be able to make a decision. She made herself available whenever we wanted to see a unit. Melaine's professionalism and responsiveness is excellent and I would recommend her to family and friends. T. Norman
Melaine is the most efficient realtor we have used. Her knowledge of the property, market, and the ease with which our transaction was completed was outstanding. She was candid in response to our questions and offered full disclosure on the property along with comps without being asked. She has further assisted us in obtaining a storage space within the building and will surely receive our business should we sell at some point.

AndersonLarry Larry and Debbie A.

I wanted to take this time to say what a great job you have done in selling and renting our condo at Palisade Palms. Even in this difficult market you took it on yourself to make sure we had plenty of activity and continued to pursue our interest with vigor. I have no doubt other agents would not have been as aggressive and communicate with us as much as you did, nor have gotten top dollar as you did. You have a great team and I would recommend to anyone they contact you for their real estate needs. Thanks again and I will continue to recommend you.

Jeff Roberts Jeff Roberts

Working with Melaine was a positive experience. She approached the sale of our home in a highly professional manner, and quickly secured two qualified buyers within the first two days of listing our home. Melaine made the sales process easy during what could have been a stressful time for us. We highly recommend her and her team which provides full service capabilities. S. Geedman
We have bought a few houses before, but it had been a couple of decades since we had last sold or bought a home, and we wanted someone who understood the home buying process and east end Galveston condos. Melaine was outstanding: very knowledgeable about east end Galveston, courteous, professional, pleasant, honest, and never, ever "pushy"....all the things you want in a real estate agent/broker. She helped us purchase a for sale by owner condo and it all went very smoothly. Kathy & Yusha A.
Melaine provided the necessary information to make an informed decision, with professional courtesy and efficiency. Melaine made the buying process enjoyable and I enjoy the friendship I have made with the Texas Coastal Realty staff, which continue to aid in my real estate needs. Brian M.
Melaine was very helpful and knowledgeable. Provided valuable information and assistance in selling our property. our property was presented and described in a very professional manner which helped in the showings and eventually selling the property. M. Kasir
Melaine helped us in both a purchase and a sale of property on Galveston Island. She responds to calls quickly, is extremely knowledgable in the details of transactions and answers all questions in a professional and personable manner. Should we wish to purchase property in Galveston again, we would not hesitate to call on Melaine Anderson again to act as our agent. M. Van Leuzen
Very professional, very responsive, and very knowledgeable. We listed with Melaine on May 6th, we had a contract on May 25th, and we closed on June 4th. We received timely notifications of viewings, and we received excellent feedback. Melaine was always positive. She prompted us to have a plan in case we sold quickly. Since that is exactly what happened, we were grateful that we had looked ahead and made plans accordingly. We have bought and sold several homes. This was the smoothest listing, sale, and closing that we have experienced to date! We have already recommended Melaine and her staff to our friends. We will continue to do so. Thank you, Melaine, for a great, hassle free experience!

Cargill Sandra and Pete Cargill

We recently purchased a condominium at Palisades Palms and working with Melaine was truly a great experience. We had owned Galveston beach homes before but never a condo so we had lots of questions and Melaine was very knowledgeable and provided me with whatever information I needed. We wanted to visit and compare other condominiums in Galveston - patiently over several weeks - Melaine scheduled many appointments at other locations and accompanied us until we narrowed down to our unit at the Palisades. After listening to what we were really looking for – she helped us find the perfect unit for our needs. Melaine was even able to refer us to a mortgage company who was familiar with funding at the Palisades and this expedited the entire process to closing on the unit. Melaine's professionalism and expertise was superior, this was the best and most positive realty transaction we have ever experienced. She handled everything with skill but most of all with genuine “customer care” while keeping us informed and in the loop. Our praises to Texas Coastal Realty. We highly recommend Melaine and Texas Coastal Realty team for your real estate needs.

VJ & Phillis Turner VJ & Phillis Turner

Melaine at Texas Coastal Realty is the quintessential professional when it comes to real estate transactional work. She recently sold a million dollar condominium unit for us whereby she handled all aspects of the transaction from the initial listing through the closing. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who doesn't have the time and/or patience to deal with the details of buying or selling a residential property. Richard A.
Melaine is a hardworking, responsible, very knowledgeable broker. Melaine was also my sister's broker. She got both of our Palisade Palms properties buyers within a short period of time. H. Hui
Melaine Anderson at Texas Coastal Realty did a great job in helping us find our dream condominium. We had been looking for several months to find the ideal living situation. Melaine sat down with us and took the time to get to know our situation and needs. She found us the perfect unit and went above and beyond the call of duty to put the deal together. We love living at the Palisade Palms and it is thanks to Melaine that we now have our own piece of “paradise.” Niki and George C.
A few months ago we listed and sold our condominium with Melaine Anderson at Texas Coastal Realty. Thanks to Melaine's professionalism and expertise, this was the best and most positive realty transaction we have ever experienced. She handled everything with skill while keeping us informed and in the loop. Our praises to Texas Coastal Realty. Tom & Kathy Z
We had only visited Galveston a couple of times before we saw Palisades Palms. After touring the building with Texas Coastal Realty, we decided on the spot to purchase a unit. The 50 mile, 50 minute commute from our Houston home was perfect for us. The fact that the building had done so well weathering Hurricane Ike was a big selling point. We have lived in high-rises in the past, the staff and management at Palisades Palms (PP) are excellent. The pool and beach access rival any luxury hotel. We feel like we are on vacation every time we are in our PP home. Two months after purchasing our condo we quickly sold it through Texas Coastal Realty and purchased a larger unit. We had our 35th anniversary party on the lanai at PP. I can't think of a better place to host an event. The common areas are exceptional. The fitness center gym is nicer than any gym membership. Being right on the beach is wonderful, we call it our million dollar view. Watching the cruse ships go by, we never feel the need to leave home. We always have an oceanfront balcony. The protected wetland, salt marsh, on the front side of the building is fascinating. We watch the ships line up to go through the ship channel; we never realized how important the Port of Galveston is. Linda & Don S.
I was very pleased with the advise you gave me and the way you showed my unit. It was all handled in a very professional manner. I especially liked the way you kept me informed of activity on my unit and on the entire Palisade Palms complex. S. Levin
We would highly recommend Melaine Anderson and Texas Coastal Realty, if you are looking for a vacation home or residence on the Texas Coast. We were new to the Galveston area and chose Melaine as our realtor, when we bought our first vacation condo in 2011. Her expertise on Palisade Palms, the market trends and everything Galveston, made the transaction quick and smooth from start to finish. I’m especially impressed with Texas Coastal Realty, a full service realty company, as they will also rent the properties for you after you’ve purchased! Her staff is friendly, knowledgeable and so convenient, with their office located on the first floor of Palisade Palms. Our first purchase went so smoothly, that there wasn’t a question we would have Melaine as our realtor again - we just purchased our second vacation home at Palisade Palms from her in 2012. The results were the same: prompt, knowledgeable service from offer to closing. Michael & Pamela Rohan
Melaine is very professional and knowledgeable. We had the pleasure in using her services in the past with buying and selling our place, she would also guide us and would email us any update about the property. L. Perez
Melaine has helped us tremendously in managing the rentals of our unit at thePalisades Palms till we decided to sell ,and the personal as well as her professional expertise in being able to sell our condo at our asking price in less than a week was beyond belief.Melaine is definitely an asset to any Real Estate establishment. P. Evangelista
I had a beach front condo at PalisadePalms. When I decided to sell it, Melaine and her professional team did an outstanding job and sold it. She is very experienced in real state and in negotiation. They made a virtual tour, kept me posted weekly on all showing activities. They were available any time I needed to communicate with them. I have bought and sold many properties and worked with many realtors. Melaine Anderson is certainly one of the best. A. Taghechian
