Real Estate Agent, Sand n Sea Properties

Appointed to the Board in 2022
Current Term Expires in 2024

With deep Galveston roots going back five generations, Kimberly Gaido has a sincere passion for life on the island.  

While earning a culinary arts degree from the Culinary Institute of American in New York, Kimberly developed a passion for entertaining friends, family and a multitude of guests that dined at Gaido's restaurant and Pelican Club. It was only natural, then, that Kimberly should spend 30 years in her family’s restaurant business, perfecting her customer service skills. 

Kimberly also developed a love for real estate and followed in her mother’s footsteps becoming a REALTOR® and a property expert on the island. She specializes in assisting her clients in buying and selling property. She is focused on listening to their needs and uses her keen negotiating skills to ensure a successful transaction.

Trustee Kimberly Gaido

Growing up around the water and salt marsh, Kimberly has a particular love for fishing and hunting. She is equally at home in the office as in a duck blind or roaming South Texas bays. Kimberly also enjoys playing golf at the Galveston Country Club and spending time with her four dogs.

She is a graduate of Southern Methodist University, which she attended on a four-year tennis scholarship. Her time in sales, coupled with her extensive customer service experience, has taught her that strong values, integrity, and passion are the corner stones to building trust and protecting her clients’ interests.
