Bio About Mike

Mike Feinberg is a lifelong resident of northern New Jersey and has an established reputation as one of the top New Jersey home builders. He had a very close relationship with his father, who spent many years in the retail clothing business and worked for both Lerner Shops and The Limited in senior management. His father was also an avid golfer who taught his son to play and love the game at a very early age. As Mike grew up, his relationship with his father sparked two things…the motivation to improve his golf game, and an interest in being a business owner.

After graduating from Passaic Valley High School in 1975, Mike attended William Paterson University, majoring in business administration. But he was driven to enter the workforce as soon as possible, and left the college path to get into business. After working in the management training program at Toys R Us for about a year, he started his own landscaping firm, Gift of Grass, which serviced residential customers throughout Passaic, Morris, Union and Essex counties in New Jersey. He attended Rutgers University, where he studied plant physiology, and obtained a certificate in turf management. His start in the landscaping business was his first step as an entrepreneur. The professional relationships he established with builders and developers, plus an innate interest in architecture, eventually motivated him to get started in construction before becoming one of the best New Jersey home builders.
Mike and his wife reside in Kinnelon, and have five grown children. His interests include reading, traveling, boating, and of course, golfing.

New Jersey Home Builders Mike Bio

How Mike Got Started

Mike ran his landscaping business during a time that the building business was booming in New Jersey. He became familiar with several high-end New Jersey home builders in the northern area of the state, and completed landscaping projects in a number of large subdivisions. His interest in architecture and residential construction grew, and he learned about the individual trades involved in the industry and how different phases of work are coordinated on a project. His landscaping background also made him aware of how important it is to design architecture with the natural environment in mind.

In 1978 Mike officially started his New Jersey home builders career, as he had the opportunity to buy a piece of property in Montville, New Jersey and started construction on his first new home project. Throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s, he focused primarily on new construction of single family homes on individual lots, and also ventured into residential remodeling work…minor additions and renovations at first, larger projects as time went on. After 2004, land use regulations limited new residential construction in parts of New Jersey, and the remodeling work became more of his business focus. Mike has also been involved in design-build work, collaborating with local architects to offer clients a complete architectural and construction package for their projects.

Over the years, Mike’s portfolio of projects as one of the area’s top New Jersey home builders has included the completion of four subdivisions, a number of teardown/rebuild projects, whole house gut renovations, major additions, and a recording studio/performance venue, as well as property development and construction of a 15,000+ square foot shopping center. More recently, he has had the opportunity to work on several beautiful historic homes, which he considers a challenging but rewarding line of construction work. His love of building has kept him motivated to work on unique projects, explore different styles of construction, and continue to learn more about his trade as one of the top New Jersey home builders.
