Brian Schwenk was born in New York and has lived in many states in the US. He has studied internationally at East China Normal University in Shanghai, China where his focus was business and language, and in Zaragoza, Spain where he became fluent in Spanish. He has a Certificate in Construction Management from the Construction Management Association of America and is a licensed REALTOR® in the state of Texas.
Brian obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Construction Management and Environmental Sustainability from Philadelphia University. While in college he interned one summer with Galveston Historical Foundation and his interest in historic homes became personal when he rehabilitated an 1886 raised cottage on Galveston’s 19th Street which was also his first foray into home ownership. He began his project management career in 2016 at Vaughn Construction in Galveston and Houston on large scale commercial projects before moving to Austin, where he joined The Burt Group, and later Cumby Group, a real estate development firm with a focus on multi-family projects.
Brian likes helping people realize their property dreams and is looking forward to working with clients and local contractors. He loves the Galveston Island lifestyle because it combines the best aspects of living in a small coastal city with the fine dining, shopping, and cultural attractions of a big city.
