About Us

Our clients believe that experience makes the difference. They’re right.

When H.J. O’Keefe works on a project, we bring a lifetime of experience. From grandfather, to son to grandsons, work ethic, honesty and personal relationships are paramount for every project we work on. John and Peter learned the art of building homes—and personal relationships—from their grandfather, Henry Joseph, and father, Ron O’Keefe.

Now with their expertise and education, John and Peter bring a perfect blend of modern technology and construction expertise to H.J. O’Keefe’s three generations of craftsmanship.

John has taken the lead as the office manager since 1994, when he left his job with another construction and engineering firm. Drawing from his civil engineering degree from Roger Williams University, John has designed many of H.J. O’Keefe’s homes.

Since 1996, Peter has rounded out the team as the on-site project manager and a licensed Realtor in Connecticut. He is the go-to guy to keep every client’s project on track and on budget with the company’s customized program management system—guaranteeing that each home is 100% complete by the closing date.

With this perfect partnership of design and management, John and Peter have built homes in southeastern Connecticut and southern Rhode Island. They enjoy their craftsmanship firsthand—both John and Peter live with their families in Pawcatuck, CT alongside their clients in a neighborhood designed and developed by the O’Keefe family.

H.J. O'Keefe, LLC is an Energy Star Builder and is a member of the National Association of Home Builders, Builders Association of Eastern Connecticut, Connecticut Builders Association, and is licensed in Connecticut and Rhode Island.
