Kay Schwartz is a native Houstonian and was an executive legal secretary for many years, which required extreme attention to detail, patience and dedication. What a great training ground for real estate that turned out to be! Her 1882 historic home in Galveston's East End was flooded with four feet of water during Hurricane Ike in September 2008, and was featured in the May 2009 Galveston Historical Foundation Spring Rebirth Home Tour. Since that time, her experience in home renovation has been a valuable asset to her clients. Kay is a past member of the Advisory Board of the 1894 Grand Opera House, as well as the GHF Board of Directors and Ashton Villa Committee. She has achieved the designations of A-REP (Accredited Real Estate Professional) and ALHS (Accredited Luxury Home Specialist).
