Tommy Kanarellis holds an exceptionally wide range of financial and entrepreneurial experience. As the former owner of a mortgage company that funded residential and commercial loans, Tommy understands the financial commitment involved for buyers and sellers in their real estate transactions. “Being on the financial side of the equation was a completely different experience but one that I believe helped round out my knowledge base in real estate,” he says. “As a real estate agent, I have a well-rounded view of what is typically the largest financial transaction for many people and can assist and guide my clients through the process in a smooth, efficient manner.”
Organized, efficient, reliable, meticulous, detail oriented, and always responsive, Tommy is driven to succeed in any endeavor he undertakes. He thrives on the fast pace and unique challenges of real estate transactions. “No two days or deals are alike and you are continuously meeting new people and learning something new,” he states. “You can be in this business for 20 years and still be learning.”
Tommy considers himself a Houstonian. Born in Santa Barbara, Tommy grew up in Singapore until he was 12. He moved with his family to Katy where he completed middle school and graduated from Taylor High School. He attended the University of Texas in Austin, moved to Los Angeles, and returned to settle permanently in Houston in 2003.
A dedicated volunteer for worthy causes, Tommy is a Lifetime Ambassador for Texas Children’s Hospital. His additional commitments include Dachshund Rescue of Houston and Dec My Room.
Tommy is a steward of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Houston. He is also a member of Watch Enthusiasts of New York (WENY), a private, by-invitation-only social club founded in 2005 for watch collectors. He enjoys cooking with his family and friends, traveling and snow skiing.
