Nate Eldon has been working in the construction industry since his teens. Growing up around Bob Eldon’s business made an informal apprenticeship and an eventual career nearly unavoidable. Nate graduated from the University of North Florida with a BA in English Literature. After moving around a bit between Florida and New Jersey he and Jennifer eventually settled and built a house for themselves in Cape May. Nate enjoys interesting and challenging building projects, traveling, surfing, and occasionally a good book. He’ll also tell anyone that asks, “being a carpenter is just about the coolest thing one can do for a living.” After running the Eldon Builders organization for the past ten years or so, he’s come to realize that he has a wonderfully diverse client network. He’s worked for billionaires and yoga teachers and everyone in-between. He enjoys meeting new people from different backgrounds and forming strong relationships. For a low-profit side hustle Nate writes the occasional article for a building trade journal and he is still considering writing a book of the funny and interesting characters he’s encountered in the building trades.
Robert C. Eldon grew up in Ohio and Philadelphia but spent many summers in Cape May and Stone Harbor. He graduated from California State College in 1973 with an Industrial Arts Education Degree. Instead of teaching, Rob chose a career in building new homes, additions, and renovations in Stone Harbor, Avalon, and surrounding Cape May County. Rob loves soccer. He coached youth teams and has continued to play soccer into his 60’s. Robert Eldon continues to work in the construction business, mostly for his son, Nate.
Jennifer was born and raised in Jacksonville, FL. She attended the University of North Florida and obtained a bachelors degree in Marketing and Business Administration. Her background is in finance, working for JP Morgan Chase for 5 years before moving to New Jersey with her husband, Nate in 2010. She is the office manager for Eldon Builders and co-owner of Eldon Property Management. When she’s not working, you can find her taking a yoga or barre class and walking their dog, Zelda on the beach.
Scott worked over 25 years in the trades including 17 as owner of his own local remodeling company before retiring a few years ago. While enjoying our beautiful County during his retirement, Scott facilitates work behind the scenes at Eldon Builders LLC.
