TOM AMIS Architecturally Inspired Service and Expertise with a Global Reach
With a 40-year track record of results as an accomplished Dallas architect, Tom Amis lives and breathes homes. He discovered early his talent for reading plans coupled with an innate ability to understand a space and its design. Today he uses those same skills to help people artfully buy and sell homes across the Metroplex.
“Tom is one of the most diligent, problem-solving architects I’ve worked with in my career,” says one client. “I’ve always respected the fact that we could communicate in a forthright, honest manner to develop solutions that provided the most benefit for the project. Budget control, design integrity, technical competence, attention to detail, and an uncompromising pursuit of excellence are among the attributes Tom brings to the table. Quite simply, what I respect most about Tom Amis are his personal and professional integrity and genuine care for providing exemplary service with a positive, whatever-it-takes attitude.”
The native Texan’s keen eye for design and lifelong familiarity with the city, make him the perfect complement to wife Buff’s thriving real estate career. Together, the pair deliver first-class service and architectural expertise, coupled by custom tailored marketing plans and a passion for homes that is unrivaled. “We are uniquely skilled and passionately committed to delivering superior personalized service. Our clients value our hands-on approach, and we pride ourselves on keeping every client’s best interests at heart,” says Tom.
Skillful execution in all aspects of design, construction, development, and project management, earned Tom the honor of The Millennium Award of Excellence by the Wynne/Jackson Group – an elite real estate development firm with over $1 billion in successful residential and commercial engagements. This, combined with his sensitivity to each clients’ wants and needs regardless of price point, make him an invaluable asset.
Tom is a graduate of the University of Texas in Austin where he achieved a Masters degree in Architecture with an emphasis on historic preservation. He received his undergraduate degree from Stanford University, and is an alumnus of the St. Marks School of Dallas. He lives happily in Midway Hollow with his wife of 38+ years, and is the proud father of two grown daughters.

“I just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with Buff and Tom Amis, who recently helped us sell our house in Caruth Court. Their insight into the market was invaluable, which allowed us to price the property precisely, (and profitably) and get it sold in two days! I think that Buff’s experience in interior design enables potential buyers to see clearly the possibilities of a new home, as does Tom’s training as an architect. Beyond that, Buff and Tom were helpful, friendly, not pushy, and exactly what we wanted and needed to get us through this transaction. I would recommend them without reservation to anyone who is thinking about buying or selling a home in the Dallas area. Over the years we have bought and sold a number of homes and have used Buff for our last two transactions.” Victor G. Bloede, Jr.
“Buff and Tom Amis made the purchase of our home actually fun and exciting! They helped us every step of the way - giving us referrals for many of the items we wanted to change or needed to address. We also did a renovation and used a suggestion that Tom had made during a walk through. His expertise and experience as architect were perfect. Even after our closing, they continued to help - their follow-through was beyond expectation. They got us in our perfect home and we highly recommend them.” William and Sandra Fegan
“When I listen to my friends and colleagues discuss their unfortunate real estate deals, I almost feel guilty! You handled both of our recent transactions beautifully. Thank you for your attention to detail, willingness to answer our unending questions with patience, and superb negotiating skills. From our initial meeting to discuss listing our home, we knew that we had made the right decision in choosing you to represent us. Your suggestions and advice throughout the sale of our home were right on target. When we described our "dream home", you far exceeded our expectations in locating the ideal new home for us. You have the gift of being assertive when necessary, yet remaining pleasant and kind at all times. We appreciate your high ethical standards and excellent communication skills. Thank you for removing the stress that typically accompanies the sale and purchase of a new home.” Greg Farnsworth
