Meet the Owner
My name is Tommy Goforth and I am the founder and owner of Goforth Custom Builders, LLC. I was raised in the small East Texas town of Hallsville. Hallsville is located on I-20 about two hours East of Dallas or one hour West of Shreveport, Lousiana. It was there that I enjoyed a strong traditional upbringing by my parents, who still reside in the area along with my sister and her family.
Upon attending Hallsville High School, I graduated from Arkansas State University in 2001. After college, I began a career building homes. Building has always been a strong influence in my life. My grandfather was a legend in the construction industry retiring as Vice President of Brown and Root, the largest construction company in the world at that time and my dad owns a successful structural steel erection company.
From 2003-2010, I cut my teeth building homes in Dallas and Houston, two of the most aggressive home building markets in the United States. Over that period of time, working for two of the largest home building companies in the nation, I received numerous state and national home building awards and closed more than 250 custom and semi-custom homes.
Today, I am back in East Texas doing what I love—building homes. My wife Allison and I enjoy our four wonderful kids, who inspire us to be great parents. I hope the home that we build for you will provide you with a place to foster cherished memories.
