TGRE Hires Realtor Carole Bell


Owner/Broker Tom Schwenk is pleased to announce Carole Bell is joining Galveston’s fastest growing boutique agency TGRE (Tom’s Galveston Real Estate) effective immediately.

Carole is known to many thanks to her years as a realtor and her successful career in finance at UTMB. As a BOI, Carole knows the Island inside and out. She is very customer focused and gives back to the community in a variety of volunteer roles.  We are very excited to have her join our team. I’m so proud of the entire team at TGRE who have worked hard to make us one of the most successful independent real estate firms on the Island, Schwenk said. 

Carole Bell has made Galveston her lifelong home and loves sharing all the wonderful features of the island with customers.  She graduated from The University of Texas Medical Branch with a BS in Health Care Administration.  After a fulfilling career in Finance at UTMB she retired but knew that she wanted to continue working. She worked for more than 30 years at UTMB and had focused on budgets, contracts, compliance, and customer service training. Carole knew she still wanted to do more and began a second career in real estate promoting all that Galveston and the nearby areas have to offer.

Customers are Bell’s main focus, and she strives to ensure that all parties are well-informed and have a clear understanding throughout all phases of the real estate process when buying or selling their home.  Ongoing communication and exceptional client satisfaction are key.  Being Born on Island, she has an insight to the many unique areas of Galveston Island.  

Bell has used her financial background in serving as Treasurer for several organizations, most notably The Junior League of Galveston County and the Board of Trustees for Trinity Episcopal School.  She is also a regular volunteer for the 1894 Grand Opera House and The Friends of the Rosenberg Library Annual Book Sale.

Bell joins TGRE realtors Alex Monteith, Brian Kuhn, Carmen and Sergio Montanez, Reid Nelson, Shane McDermott, Robert Zahn, and Robert Frank, as well as operations director Joe Schwenk, marketing director Shannon Caldwell, executive assistant Mackenzie Finklea, and intern Xavier Esquivel.
