The Real Estate Department is responsible for coordinating the sales, purchases and leases of properties for all Archdiocesan parishes and schools. The department also manages the real estate portfolio of the Archdiocese and maintains the records and data necessary to keep the Archbishop informed on demographic information, and the current or future land needs of the Archdiocese.

The Real Estate Department is currently involved in approximately 25 acquisitions, 10 dispositions, 10 evaluations of donations, 5 lease negotiations, and over 25 miscellaneous projects such as easement requests, condemnation negotiations, and other matters.

By managing this function for the Archdiocese, we are able to standardize our transactions, free up the time for our pastors/clergy, and save money on taxes, commissions, and consulting fees that is better applied to the mission of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.
