Meet the Oak DD Team
PJ is a Cape Cod native and grew up visiting his dad in Connecticut where he learned the family trade of Carpentry. Being surrounded by mechanics and tradespeople in his family he quickly learned many additional trades including general contracting, landscaping, finish carpentry and more. PJ attended Hofstra University for communications and pursued a career in the corporate world building a knowledge base of marketing, sales and communications.
After years of corporate world experience, he started to take his skills as a manager and adapting them to his hands-on skills as a carpenter. The natural step was to start buying, fixing and selling real estate.
His philosophy is to buy the cheapest houses in the most expensive neighborhoods, looking for the worst of the worst, the house everyone else turns their nose at. In his mind every house has potential, you just need to buy it right. Some just need a bit more love than others...
PJ resides in Hingham Ma and does home renovation projects across the South Shore of Massachusetts. He lives with his wife Lizzy, and their two kids.
Oak DD's secret weapon!
What people don’t know is that for about 5 years Lizzy has moonlighted as the lead designer as she worked a full-time job in Athletics.
As she helped her husband PJ pick all the finishes in the homes we realized it was a skill that takes real patience and creativity. Lizzy also came to the realization that this was something she loved and was incredibly good at!
Since 2020 Lizzy now acts as the full-time Lead Designer at OAK DD. (Officially!)
She is in charge of working with our team members to pick every finish in our spec homes while helping organize the flow of materials to meet our aggressive deadlines.
