Shykatz Deli in Galveston says this about Tom:

Sky Katz Deli in Galveston Texas“Four years ago we moved into the San Jacinto community. It was but a few hours of being there that we were greeted by Tom and Jack. That have not only been wonderful neighbors, patrons and friends. But Tom is a pillar in our community. The city of Galveston is a better place because of Tom Schwenk. He is giving, caring, supportive and always there whenever and however you might need. As a realtor he is on the job. There was a property we wanted to see that was not his listing nor was it geographically convenient for him. But I want to tell you not only did he come through but did so within hours of our call. He is outstanding in every sense of the word. WE are extremely blessed to call him a friend. Thank you Tom!”

Tom has received dozens of client reviews on 3rd party website “Stik Recommendations“. Here are a few:

Galveston Daily News

In addition to being a successful residential and commercial REALTOR in Galveston (scroll up or click here for customer testimonials), Tom currently serves as President of Galveston Association of Realtors. As is customary in that position, Tom contributes a newspaper article each week to our local newspaper.
In response, we’ve recently received great feedback from local Galvestonians:

Once again, you’ve hit a home run! You offer so much more than a ‘realtor,’ you are ‘community!’ We’ve got to meet for coffee! Your column today is news I was totally unaware of. Yes, I knew Randall’s collected food, but not that the houses of worship had a project!

I’m going to be calling you one day soon and see if we can have a coffee! I did look for you at the Paws Gala to at least meet you, but who could find anyone in that haystack? Keep writing! Three columns I look forward to in the GDN, your’s, Biz Buzz and Dr. Sierpina’s!!! They are in good company!

Hi Tom,
I’ve been meaning to email you for about 2 weeks now. I wanted to thank you for the column on the Farmer’s Market and mentioning my work with Surfrider to reduce plastic bags on the island.Jeff and I were talking Saturday about how much we enjoy your column, focusing on the community and showing everyone what a great place to live without directly selling a home.

Have a great week,

RE: Galveston Arts Center, Galveston Art League ArticleDear Tom,
I’m a Galveston Arts Center patron and volunteer and I just wanted to say thank you for the nice article you wrote in yesterday’s paper.

The GAC is working hard to continue programming while raising funds to finish restoring our building on the Strand, and while we wait for the arrival of our new Executive Director, so the recognition you gave us is much appreciated.
