Builder Profile

Drew Gasser- Owner

Drew Gasser has been building distinctive homes for over 25 years. A lifetime native of Baton Rouge, Drew appreciates the people, unique culture, and the way of living in South Louisiana. After graduating from Catholic High School, Drew pursued his passion for building at Louisiana State University receiving his Bachelor of Science in Construction Management.

Focusing on custom homes, Drew unlike many speculative builders builds a limited number of custom homes to maintain the customer experience, satisfaction, and quality craftsmanship. His reputation, success and client satisfaction is attributed to his Thomas Building Company Motto: Listen Better, Plan Better, Build Better

Listen Better, Plan Better, Build Better

Drew Listens Better – to his client’s every need so as to deliver the home of their dreams. Building your custom home is all about you, your vision, your desires and your needs. If you “listen better” your clients ultimately trust you and their dream custom home is delivered.

To Plan Better is to make the client and their needs, the center of the planning process. To accomplish this Drew marries the client with an expert team – architect, interior designer and Drew’s building experience, craftsmanship, and construction management skills. Drew personally looks at the architectural plan and is able to visualize every piece of wood that goes into the frame and sees your house completed in his mind before he breaks ground. The client is the center of the planning process.

In order to Build Better, you assemble an industry-leading team that consists of an experienced superintendent, the best tradesmen, vendors, and subcontractors. Drew has trusted and used the same subcontractors for over 15 years. When you have a team such as his, it allows him to deliver the best custom home, packed with value-added features on-time and most importantly on budget.
