Tom Smith is the founder and visionary behind the growth and success of THS Investments, LLC. He has had a lifelong interest in land, and it’s potential leading to ownership and development. His interest in farmland started on Sunday afternoons with his mentor, a farm realtor, when they would visit farms, talk about the land and meet the farmers, which over a period of time provided a lot of information and knowledge about rural land and later what the best use might be.
Tom is a veteran, businessman, and family man who has deep roots in his community. He has an undergraduate degree in Chemistry and is a graduate of the University of Kansas School of Law. He served as a Ranger and Paratrooper in the US Army, and after Law School, worked as an Attorney for Nichols Company and as president of RLC Investment Company. While in law school, he owned and operated a restaurant and later partnered with a national restaurant chain to own and operate a new restaurant concept.
Tom has acquired thousands of acres of land which were then planned and zoned for mixed-use residential and commercial. Some of the single family was developed by him, but the multi-family was sold to builders. The commercial property was planned, developed and managed by him and still owned by the company.
