A sought-out builder and remodeler for those who want a personal experience, when you build with Thomas Development, it’s as if you are keeping the home building process all in your family.
A son of North Dallas, Matthew Thomas was raised in the very Dallas neighborhoods where he is now building beautiful new custom homes and remodeling ranches from the ‘50s and ‘60s. Oh, he’s in the Park Cities, too, and also venturing out to the suburbs and some second homes. He had an early passion for building in high school. During summers, he worked with his uncle, also a prominent Dallas home builder, and apprenticed with a licensed electrician during college summers. He earned his degree in business, then went to work for a boutique commercial Dallas development company…
Next, like many fine custom builders, Matthew cut his teeth with a large national home builder. He worked every aspect round the clock, from building, construction, managing quality control and warranty. He inspected thousands of homes to make certain that construction was sound and company building standards not just followed, but enshrined. His first year with the company, Matthew earned Top Builder of the Year for homes ranging from $350,000 to $1,000,000 plus homes.
But he wanted more. To gain a 360 degree working knowledge of the industry, Matthew moved into commercial construction for the next eight years. He oversaw the construction of office buildings, warehouses, prisons, hotels, condominiums, apartments, retail buildings, commercial parking garages and industrial projects. His experience gives him a unique edge among most homebuilders: commercial construction uses cutting edge materials, complex design and construction. Deadlines and budgets are tighter than in residential, and commercial contractors are continually upgrading with the most innovative building techniques.
That passion for custom building finally brought him back full circle, to the residential side. Matthew started his own residential and commercial building company, Thomas Development and Construction, in 2008. The company unifies his years of extensive construction experience with his gift of youthful energy and passion. Whether he’s remodeling a home from the studs up or building a dream home, Matthew Thomas remains dedicated to helping his clients achieve their home goals on time and on budget.
“I want my clients to live in their homes and love them with the same passion I had growing up in my family home, “ says Mathew. “Sound construction, beautiful design and an attention to detail are our first priority. It isn’t about the quantity of homes, it’s about the quality, always.”
For his clients, he says, only the very best will do!
