The New Way To Do Construction (ft. John Cefalu)
John Cefalu is a different type of contractor. He and business partner Derek Clelan started JJ’s Landscaping in 2018 mowing lawns and learned the basics of construction and landscaping from DIY YouTube videos.
The small business that began as something temporary just to help them make enough money for their following jobs led to something more significant when they discovered how to fill the hole in construction.
They educated the homeowners, listened to their project vision and needs, and communicated with contractors in-depth.
When the light bulb clicked, John and Derek formed The Buildsters in 2020, where they would brand construction using the power of social media, uniting contractors and homeowners under one platform.
