About Us

The J.T. Smith Difference 


With 30 years of development experience, J.T. Smith Homes combines our extensive knowledge in real estate with our superior project management skills to bring you the home of your dreams in the best locations—at a price you can afford. 

As a company that acts as both a developer and a builder, we’re able to customize our communities to fit the surrounding environment. You’ll know a J.T. Smith neighborhood when you see one: the lots, the homes, the locations—everything just fits.

You might wonder why we’re able to offer more in our homes without inflated price tags. Since we develop our communities and build the homes within them, we have just one combined overhead cost, which reduces the overall cost of our homes. This allows us to add unique features like rock walls, walk-in showers, and gourmet kitchens that make our homes stand out among the rest. 

Our primary focus is always on you, our future homeowners. We think through each project in anticipation of what you might want and need in a home. All of our staff has grown up in the Portland metro, and we live with our families in the same communities as our homebuyers. We know the local culture and community identity, and we understand what homeowners need in the area.

J.T. Smith has produced more lots than any other company in the area. Our extensive experience has brought us incredible resources and connections in the community—we’ve worked with nearly every city, organization, and professional company in our industry. If any issues arise during our build process, we’re able to fix it, and fix it fast.

You’ll find many of our communities are close to school, close to work, and close to play. We think living with these conveniences makes it easy to settle down and really make a place feel like home. We hope you find what you’re looking for in one of our communities and decide to make your home with J.T. Smith Homes.
