Bill Scharfenberg

About Us

Growing up on the Jersey Shore, Bill Scharfenberg knew at a young age that he was interested in home construction. He pursued other educational interests, eventually becoming an attorney, but knew that construction had to be a part of his life. In 2000, Bill bought a large piece of property in Belmar, subdivided it, put up two modular homes and sold them. He was hooked. He rebuilt a riverfront home for himself, clients took interest, and Beacon Homes was in business.

What began as a fun hobby had become the fulfillment of a dream. Bill continues to live and work in Ocean County where he and his wife, Carolyn (also a Toms River native), are raising a young daughter. Bill is an avid fisherman, skier and golfer,and continues to be active in the community.

Today, Beacon Homes remains a small, custom builder doing business only in Ocean and Southern Monmouth counties. With only a handful of projects going on at one time, your home will get the detailed attention it deserves.

We don't do any marketing. You won't see giant billboards with the Beacon name. Instead, we rely on the good word and recommendation of the many satisfied customers we’ve delighted.

As a local, Bill's genuinely excited to do his part to help rebuild the shore. Because of our experience in this area, we can build on your existing property or help you find the perfect spot. Whether yours is vacant land or demolition is required, we will deliver you a top-quality, beautiful home on time and on budget and handle all the paperwork along the way. Standard modular, custom modular or luxury custom-built, Bill and his crew at Beacon Homes are ready to guide you through the process, ensuring that your new home is a beacon for you.
