Born and raised in a family immersed in the industry, entrepreneur and investor Jarod Machinga has been involved with construction projects his entire adult life. He formally ventured into the field in the 1990s as a college student while pursuing a BS in Engineering Science from the College of New Jersey (formerly Trenton State College). Unable to afford off-campus housing, Machinga purchased his first investment property: a fixer-upper which he renovated himself, later renting it out.
As the years passed, Machinga continued buying houses, eventually outgrowing the residential market. Soon after, he widened his scope and began pursuing commercial real estate investments, eventually taking the leap to form his own businesses. Now, he is the owner and operator of JAMAC, JAMAC Construction, JAMAC Electric, and JAMAC Plumbing. In addition to these ventures, Machinga also manages numerous real estate investments.
