Brian Kuhn


As an avid surfer & fisherman, Brian has always been drawn to the salty coastline and Island lifestyle.  He grew up in Houston, but moved to Galveston as fast as he could.  While initially it was his passion for these ocean activities that drew him to Galveston, the intrigue of the Island’s history and diverse community led him to make a permanent home here.

Brian has been working with buyers and sellers in the area since 2011. Early in his career he forged a strong relationship with his broker, Tom Schwenk. While attending graduate school at Texas A&M and in between shipping gigs in the merchant marine, Brian worked as Tom’s assistant. Tom has been an excellent mentor to Brian over the years and they have closed dozens of transactions together. When Tom started Tom’s Galveston Real Estate in 2018, Brian jumped on the opportunity to become a full time member of Tom’s Team!

Outside of real estate, Brian stays busy with his involvement with the Galveston Surfrider Foundation, a non-profit environmental organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s oceans, waves and beaches. In 2018, along with his brother, he founded the La Izquierda Surf & Music Festival which has grown in popularity over the last 2 years and become a calendar event for Galveston.  He also serves on the Galveston Association of Realtors MLS committee.

Brian is married to local architect, Cate Black. They have a beautiful daughter, Finley Rose (aka Single Fin).
