Galveston Broker Installed into Hall of Fame in Washington
Coldwell Banker TGRE Owner and Broker Tom Schwenk has been inducted into the Realtor Political Action Committee (RPAC) Hall of Fame this week.
The Hall of Fame recognizes dedicated realtors who have made a significant commitment to RPAC over the years. Schwenk was installed at the May REALTORS® Legislative Meeting held in Washington DC from May 6 to 11.
“I’m very committed to protecting the rights of Texas property owners through my many years of involvement in the Texas Political Involvement Committee (PIC). Politics has long been an interest of mine and I put my money where my mouth is. Over the years I have contributed more than $50,000 as well as many hours of advocacy,” he said.
Among the benefits honorees receive are personal plaques, recognition pins and their name on a plaque in the National Association of Realtors’ Washington DC building. “As something of a political junkie, I got a real kick out of having my name on a Hall of Fame in Washington.”
Tom Schwenk said nationally the REALTOR® party is a powerful appliance working to advance public policies and candidates that build strong communities, protect property interests and promote a vibrant business environment.
“Locally, realtors in Texas are a very powerful lobby we have good relationships and get things done for Texas property owners.
Protecting homeowner rights and reducing property taxes are key focus areas for this powerful and well-organized lobby group.
Coldwell Banker TGRE was founded by Tom Schwenk five years ago and now has 16 team members. Realtors at the firm not only help people to buy, sell and lease in Galveston County, but also volunteer and donate to support and develop their local communities.
This award-winning firm is proud to have realtors in the top 10 per cent of the global Coldwell Banker network.
