Considering a home down there for investment/vacation. Can anyone recommend a realtor? Also, any different neighborhoods such as Jamaica Beach on Galveston side to recommend?

On a related note, one realtor steered me toward the homes that he was listing. Do I:
a) say "that's a nice house; I'll get back to you at some point when I choose a buyer's agent."?
b) call him out right away and tell him that dual agency is illegal in Texas?
c) passively aggressively mention that I might offer 97% of list since the seller only owes 3% commission?

Well... B and C are a little presumptive since B doesn't preclude the realtor from being an intermediary and, since it sounds like you have no agreement with any realtor including that realtor. C is something embedded in the agent's agreement with the seller regardless if you represent yourself or not.

Either start negotiating with or without a realtor and offer whatever the hell you think is fair.

I'd rent in the area where you are considering buying

My parents ended up buying the house that they rented several times in Indian Beach

IMO, Bolivar is a different crowd than the West End

So I've heard. I know people who work in Beaumont. They don't live there.
