Services offered in Dickinson
At Green Residential, our flat-rate management fee helps to keep your rental property profitable. For your convenience, we make sure owners receive an electronic accounting statement which includes a copy of any invoice paid during the previous month. We invest in web-based technology to make sure our team responds promptly to requests from owners, investors, and tenants. In addition, Green Residential minimizes the number of homes each employee is responsible for managing. This allows our clients to receive the professional attention they deserve.
We screen all prospective tenants at no cost to our clients. We screen tenants based on their credit, employment, and rental history, as well as conducting a criminal background check. We don't collect a management fee if you aren't paid, therefore we have an incentive to find the best tenant for you.
By having a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) oversee the finances of each home under management, we provide Green Residential clients with the comfort of knowing the income, expenses & security deposits related to their property are being taken care of by a professional.
Our professional leasing team ensures that each owner’s property has the best opportunity to be leased quickly. These leasing services include rental price analysis, professional quality photography, listing home on the local MLS (HAR.COM), and prompt responsiveness to potential applicant inquiries.
Our web based technology allows us to collect rent from tenants electronically and distribute rent electronically to owners at no additional charge to either party. We assess late fees and send notices when a tenant fails to pay rent on time. All late fees are passed on to our owners.
We believe that the photographs we take and use for our rental listings are important because they entice prospects to view our homes. We invest in top of the line cameras and digital photography software to provide professional quality photographs.
We provide clients with dependable, quality repair & maintenance services that can be trusted. Our administrators and contractor are the best in their category whom we have worked with for years. We understand how highly residential owners value their property, so we make sure to show their homes the amount of consideration and care they would themselves. Our prompt repair & maintenance program is one of the ways we excel.
Evicting a tenant may be one of the most unpleasant parts of being a landlord, but it can also be vitally important. Our clients can rely on our professional assistance when having to deal with this uncomfortable task.

The city of Dickinson began growing its roots back in 1824, when the Mexican government granted a large piece of land to a man named John Dickinson. What else would he name his piece of land other than Dickinson?
By 1850, the shores of the Bayou nearby had an established settlement, and ten years later, the entire area became home to a stop along the famous Galveston, Houston, and Henderson Railroad.
The town of Dickinson established its first post office in 1890, and in the same decade, the land was actively marketed to potential buyers. Nine businessmen, including Fred M. Nichols, created the Dickinson Land and Improvement Association to market empty areas of the land, leveraging the area’s fertile soil as the main selling point.
Nichols converted about 40 acres of the land into a public park and called it the Dickinson Picnic Grounds, and for the next thirty years, large groups of people would come to have picnics and enjoy the holidays in the park. In 1896, a Texas Coast Fair sprang up in the park (attracting 5,000 people), and a harness racetrack was built to attract more people to the area. The city was booming.
In the late 1800’s, many Italian immigrants found Dickinson and the town ended up becoming the biggest Italian community in the country at the time.
The great storm of 1900 that devastated much of the county caused land to become cheap in Dickinson, so many new farmers settled in Dickinson after the storm had passed. Formerly home to cotton and cane crops, Dickinson became known for its fruits and vegetables that people would sell at the local market.
The railroad had built two more stops in Dickinson by 1911, for a total of three stops, and by that time some Galveston residents had built their homes and created what they called the Oleander Country Club.
Dickinson was prime territory for gambling, with clubs named the Dickinson Social Club, the Little Club, and the Rose Garden. Unfortunately, in 1957, the Attorney General and Texas Rangers didn’t see the appeal and shut down all gambling throughout Galveston County.
With the establishment of NASA’s Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center in 1962 in Clear Lake City, the population of Dickinson continued to grow. In 1904 it was estimated that the population was just 149, and by 2002 it had grown to 17,688.
In 2010, the population in Dickinson had grown to 18,680 which was a 9.3% increase from ten years prior in 2000. This town has a population of 70.5% white, 11.5% black, 0.5% American Indian and Alaska Natives, 1.9% Asian, and 32.7% Hispanic.
Over 80% of Dickinson residents aged 25 and older are high school graduates, and 18.4% have a bachelor’s degree or higher. The average commute time to work is 26.1 minutes, and 71.3% of people own their homes.
The median home value in 2010 was $118,800, with the median income being $54,742.
The Dickinson Independent School District serves over 11,000 students and their families, and employs over 1,600 staff members. Covering 61 square miles, the Dickinson ISD includes Dickinson, unincorporated areas of San Leon and Bacliff, as well as some parts of Texas City and League City.
Dickinson ISD was one of only 130 school districts in America (and 22 school districts in Texas) to be recognized for the 2015-2016 College Board Gaston Caperton Opportunity Honor Roll for creating opportunities for underrepresented students.
The Dickinson ISD also has an accelerated academy open to 100 fifth graders to learn innovative science, technology, engineering, and math. In 2018, the program will expand to include sixth graders.
In the last four years, Dickinson High School AP placement tests have increased by nearly 20%. The district has a popular and successful fine arts program for band, choir, dance, drama, and art. The Dickinson High School marching band continually achieves advancement into the UIL 6A State Marching Contest. Some of the DHS musicians have even been recognized with all-state honors.

There are plenty of activities to keep you and your family busy in Dickinson, especially if you like digging into the historical aspects of the town. Some fun activities in Dickinson include:
- Bay Area Raceway. This family entertainment center is a blast. They’ve got an outdoor track for go kart racing, a 5,000 square foot game room, and a 5,000 square foot laser tag arena with plenty of cool prizes you can redeem your hard-earned tickets for.
- Dickinson Historical Society Depot Museum. With the restored buildings of the old Railroad depot, this is a great little historical spot to visit, complete with a train show and a gift shop. Although the depot itself is original, it was transported to a new location. This activity is a great experience for the whole family to learn about the rich history of Dickinson, Texas history, and railroad history.
- The Kemah Boardwalk. Not too far from Dickinson is the famous Kemah Boardwalk, where you and your family can enjoy food, fun, games, live music, and amusement park rides along the shore.
