Unlike other builders, Tom Liesy and his Northwest TA Liesy Homes Team believe in working closely with you to design and build the home you want.

“I really want buyers to be involved and become a part of the building process, you should be able to pick and choose what you want in your home and not have to buy a cookie-cutter house that looks like your neighbor’s. Whether I build a $200,000 home or a $600,000 home, I put the same quality craftsmanship into all my homes.”

A certified master builder, Tom has over 30 years of experience as a general contractor in all types of construction – from speculative entry and executive to custom residential and multi-family building, commercial tenant improvements and remodeling projects.


Tom started his career in construction at the age of 14. After working for Scott Miller, the owner of The Golden Hammer in Portland, Tom gained the knowledge and skills necessary to obtain his contractor’s license when he was just 18 years old. He then went on to work for Dan Anderson of Dan Anderson Homes. It is during this time that Tom says he learned the most about building houses. Under Dan’s tutelage, he became an expert on all aspects of production building.

Since starting TA Liesy Homes Northwest, Tom has been involved in building homes in various communities across the Portland metropolitan area’s East side, and Lake Havasu City, Arizona.  Tom has also served as a State Director for the Oregon Home Builder’s Association and has taught construction management courses at the Northwest College of Construction.

Drawing heavily on his years of experience supervising the construction of thousands of homes, Tom’s top priority is, and always has been, building the highest quality home possible.

Tom understands that buyers today know what they want. The TA Liesy Homes team will work closely with you to customize a home exactly as you desire.

In 2021 Tom’s love for watersports brought to Lake Havasu City, Arizona.  He currently resides in both Oregon and Arizona.
