Specializing in Residential Construction & Renovations

Thomas J. Andrea III

Three Palms Construction owner, Thomas Andrea has been "in the trades" most of his life. During his 10 year career as a professional Jai Alai player, he studied and became a Master Electrician E1 in Connecticut. He worked for several companies for many years before eventually forming Andrea Electric. He supervised crews and also worked in the trenches to gain the knowledge to complete a job from all aspects. Tom's customers regularly commended his quality work, and he quickly gained a reputation as a meticulous electrician who was also a pleasure to work with.

Custom home building always fascinated Tom, so he enlisted several partners to build custom and spec homes in CT as small investment projects. To fulfill a life long dream in the construction industry, in 2001 Tom moved to Naples and joined AHS Construction as a Project Superintendent and in 2003 he became co-owner. He soon mastered the ability to oversee all phases of general construction; his projects ranged from single story residences to a 72-Unit condominium development to mid-rise commercial buildings. Notably, Tom supervised the construction of Ave Maria University's campus in North Naples at the Vineyards.

In 2008, Tom decided the time was right to form his own corporation. He became a licensed Residential Contractor and formed Three Palms Construction. He plans to spend many years building custom homes in Southwest Florida.

Tom, originally from Trumbull, Connecticut, currently resides in Naples with his wife, Laurie Bellico Andrea. He is the proud father of two sons, Thomas and Jack. He is an avid golfer who loves to play the beautiful and challenging courses of Southwest Florida. Tom is also a member of the Florida Board of Realtors and a Sales Associate with John R. Wood Properties.
