Company stability after Tom Gentry’s accident became a priority for Gentry Homes, whose presence and experience in new home design and construction had become a family brand name. Many had thought the locally-owned home building company would cease operations; however GWPR was retained in 1994 to assist with corporate public relations which targeted Hawaii’s financial and business leaders, while simultaneously working with sales & marketing to reorganize the company’s advertising and consumer outreach programs through a comprehensive public relations and advertising campaign.

With GWPR’s assistance, Gentry Homes celebrated nearly 50 years of providing new homes for Hawaii’s families in Waipio by Gentry and in the Ewa by Gentry master-planned communities.

Today, marketing efforts include the ‘Gentry Green Living’ product line which could be the most energy efficient new homes on Oahu today. Having earned the Energy Star Housing Award from the EPA, several Parade of Homes Grand Champion awards and a prestigious LEED Platinum designation, Gentry has built over 12,000 homes in Hawaii since its establishment in 1968.
