Tom Gentry, original owner and founder of Gentry Homes, started his successful homebuilding career in 1960. After building and selling several successful communities in Pleasant Hill, Dublin, San Ramon and Concord, California, he took his new company and family to Hawaii.

Gentry Homes, Ltd. began building in Hawaii in 1968 with 510 acres of land in Central Oahu, today known as Waipio Gentry. As Tom’s passion as a developer grew, he continued to develop master planned communities while expanding his commercial and industrial developments which include Kona Marina, Gentry Waipio Business Park and the Gentry Pacific Design Center.

As an innovator in homebuilding, off shore speed boat racing, and community design, Tom would have been pleased with the energy saving technology and design that have come to define a Gentry Home. A family owed business since 1968, we hope you and your family discover the difference that is distinctly Gentry “Tomorrow’s Home Today”.


"I think my first love is in developing new ideas & 
going places no one has ever been before"

Tom Gentry (1930-1998)
