#038 - Tommy Beadel - Founder Thomas James Homes The Largest Urban In-Fill Home Builder in America
The Deal with Danny Brown
Tommy Beadel is the CEO of Thomas James Homes, the largest urban single lot homebuilder in the United States. This means he has about 200 custom homes being built throughout the Westside of Los Angeles at any given time in neighborhoods such as Brentwood, Palisades, Santa Monica, Westwood, Cheviot Hills, Beverlywood, Beverly Hills Post Office, Mar Vista and Culver City. These properties are generally selling for $2M to $7M which is a phenomenal value for a new home on the Westside of Los Angeles. The scale and efficiency of Thomas James Homes is unprecedented in the residential development industry. Their extraordinary success led them to partner with powerhouse Oaktree Capital who acquired Thomas James Homes in 2018. This allows TJH to accelerate their expansion plans into Silicon Valley, Seattle and other booming single family markets. From their humble beginnings, the ethos of this company has been to put the brokers first and always reward them by paying them a full fee and giving them the listing on any deals they bring to the table. This respect and loyalty towards brokers has allowed Thomas James Homes to scale into the unique custom home building juggernaut they are today.
