Since the model homes have opened in March of 2019, sales have exceeded expectations and construction is in full swing with more than 8 homes under construction currently. The success is directly attributed to the way Ben and his company Friendship, Inc. have been delivering quality homes to happy homeowners for over 3 decades.

Bens Father – A Chicken Farmer & Mentor

Ben’s Father was a chicken farmer in the early 1960’s and started doing construction in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. Ben worked for his father’s building firm throughout the 1970’s and was mentored in all aspects of building and construction methods. As a young man, Ben attended University, passed the California Bar, and was admitted into United States Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. After a short stint as a litigation attorney, Ben came back to New Jersey to partner with his father and started Friendship, Inc. in 1983.


Building Homes and a Reputation of Quality

Continuing his hands-on education after partnering with his father, Ben honed his skills as a builder developer through land acquisition, finance and project management. His first new home community was Yellowbrook Crest in Howell, a small 10 lot subdivision developed in the mid 1980’s. As the company and the economy grew, so did the homes and the communities Friendship, Inc. was building. Ben’s went on to build 20+ new home communities, commercial properties and is currently building Belaire Estates at Howell and developing a new subdivision in Jackson, NJ.
