In August 2017, Tom moved to the Northwest Austin area to work with his oldest son Thomas who started the corporation Zollege, parent company of Vandelay Education.
Thomas and his dad have a passion for giving back to the community and wanted to help homelessness in the Austin area so they created Purple Pig Realty. This was the first real estate company in Texas granted by the Texas Real Estate Commission as a PBC (Public Benefit Corporation)
Now an LLC, the company continues this endeavor and gives a portion of its commission to a 501(c)(3) charity in the local community chosen by a buyer or seller represented by Purple Pig Realty. The company is currently in a new facility on Hwy 87 just north of the Hemphill city limits.
