State Senator Lou Kosco, Ret., and Elaine

When we decided to be full time residents of Lanoka Harbor we made the decision to demolish the house we had and build a new waterfront home.

The best decision we made was to visit BACORP Building Group. From floor plans, exterior and interior designs, kitchen cabinets up to handing us the key to our new home was a pleasant experience. Alan Sr., Alan Jr. and Kerry made our building experience enjoyable.

After three years in our BACORP Energy Efficient home, we know it was an excellent choice. Everyone is always available, responsive and never to busy to help.

Need a new house—-Call BACORP.

BACORP Building Group not only built our home in 1998 but when we decided to move to Forked River permanently in 2002, they helped us with an addition and improvements. Everyone was incredibly helpful from the design phase to the detailed completion of our waterfront home. Prior to meeting with Alan and Kerry Baker we were not aware of what it meant to own an Energy Star home, but now that we live in one, we are extremely grateful for their suggestion and expertise.

…It’s really nice to know that a family run business continues to care about their clients long after the job is done.

Our home is quiet and tight with great views and very comfortable in all seasons. Alan’s knowledge of energy saving mechanical and materials made most of our decisions easy and Kerry helped put the finishing touches on counter top colors and fireplace locations. Having a fully custom home built turned out to be a lot of fun rather then a dreaded experience. Alan was also very mindful of costs and always helped in keeping us within our budget.

The unexpected surprise came long after the completion of our home when a door repair issue came to our attention. When we called BACORP to find someone to address the repair, they informed us that they would take care of the problem as part of their ongoing commitment to client satisfaction. They not only replaced the door but painted it as well.

It’s really nice to know that a family run business (now including Alan Jr.) continues to care about their clients long after the job is done. We sincerely appreciate all they have done for us and enjoy our home every day!

When it came time to expand my business, I approached BACORP Building Group with the challenge of renovating an antiquated building into office space as well as a climate controlled central distribution facility in order to better serve my clientele in the Long Beach Island vicinity and points south.

…They were responsive to my needs, offered clear and concise documentation to all contractual aspects of the project and were a pleasure to do business with.

Dot and Bill Connolly

In the spring of 1984 we moved into our waterfront home built for us by Alan Baker. We have used the house every summer and every weekend of the year for the past 24 years. A unique feature of the house is the GEO-THERMAL heat pump that has provided all of our heating and cooling needs at very low energy costs and minimum maintenance. Alan designed the house to be energy efficient with 6″ wall/floor insulation and 12″ in the roof.

While minimizing heat loss the construction makes for a very comfortable, quiet and draft free house. We are finally looking forward to moving into our retirement house full time.

Having my house built by BACORP Building Group started with knowledgeable professionals on building design and ended with quality construction.

They are beyond comparison to other builders.

Our experiences with them have been outstanding and have resulted in an enduring friendship and a beautiful waterfront home. We particularly were delighted with their accessibility and openness.

Initially, we were impressed with the skills, knowledge and experience of BACORP as well as their high standards for quality construction. Subsequently, we also came to highly value their trustworthiness and reliability. Always patient and supportive, no problem was too difficult or insignificant. Challenges were approached creatively and with a can do attitude. We particularly were delighted with their accessibility and openness. A working partnership was truly forged that made the people of BACORP a pleasure to deal with.


Carol & Bill Viola

The thought of building a new home and dealing with a Builder sent shivers down my spine. Every antenna was up and my trust level was already low. I had heard way too many horror stories about builders, who said one thing and did another; who made promises that went unfulfilled; who out and out lied to the customer; who crafted contracts that contained material and deliverables that were vague. These are the thoughts I had when I entered the offices of BACORP Building Group Inc, in May 2003.

You come to find out that building a house on the water is quite different then building upland… These folks know what works.

In the end what my wife Carol and I experienced was quite the opposite.  Alan Sr. and Kerry Baker, the owners of BACORP, were highly professional, courteous and honest to a fault. Alan Jr., who was the construction manager, is cut from the same mold. We partnered with the Bakers to develop the construction drawings and the contract, which contained explicit details of what materials would be used for construction and the associated costs; a detailed schedule of deliverable’ s and an end date of when we would be able to take occupancy of our new home. Alan Sr. made it a point to go over all the terms and conditions of that contract with us to assure that we understood every detail. It took hours but he wanted to assure us that he had our best interests in mind. They even directed us to local banks to secure our construction loan and mortgage.

The selection process was next. During this process Kerry was with us every step of the way guiding us through the choices of siding, flooring, roof material, etc. suggesting what would or wouldn’t work. You come to find out that building a house on the water is quite different then building upland. You need to know what works or you could find yourself in a bind years after construction. These folks know what works.

If some difficulties developed during the construction, Alan Jr. would assemble Carol and I and Kerry and Alan Sr. to the site and we would resolve it together. Nothing was decided without our buy-in and Alan Jr. was on every detail of the construction.

In the end we had the most enjoyable experience that I could have imagined and we moved into our new home within one week of the promised completion date.
I am a very skeptical person and when I entered their office that first day I was on high alert but I soon found out how sincere these folks are about making the construction of your home a great experience and even after 4 years the Bakers are willing to lend a hand with their advice when my wife thinks of new projects for our home. They are really good people.


Don & Theresa DeCaro

My wife and I are writing to you after about 2 1/2 years of living in this wonderful house you built for us. From the very inception of us wanting to build a home in Manahawkin, the team of Alan & Kerry Baker and Alan Jr. were an integral part in working with us to make our plans come to life.

The BACORP team worked with us and made great suggestions to bring our viewpoints and opinions into focus. Alan Sr., Alan Jr. and Kerry each helped us in reaching our destination, and each in your own way. With an ease of manner from you all, you brought your knowledge, skills and experience to help us make it all happen.

Having our home built into the Energy Star program was an excellent choice; it is proving to be a great asset in these current times of fuel cost.

Having our home built into the Energy Star program was an excellent choice; it is proving to be a great asset in these current times of fuel costs. Our HVAC system runs efficiently and quietly throughout the year.

Even though a few years has gone by, we still appreciate and get wonderful comments on the house in general and on some of the finer details that were put in place. We also appreciate your follow-up on the few items that any new house will need to make it just right.

Please feel free to use this letter as you see fit and use us as a reference to any of your potential customers.

John & Bridget Lewis

We chose BACORP as the builder of our new home because of our previous experience of living in a BACORP constructed home. The design phase was flawless. All of our needs and desires were addressed and met. The construction phase was superbly supervised.

The design phase was flawless

The hands-on approach of BACORP produced a home that has been problem free and a joy to live in. BACORP promised to deliver our home in 16 weeks after the start of construction. We moved in 16 weeks after the first shovel went into the ground. We would recommend BACORP as your builder without hesitation.”


Pat and Joanne Cannata

When we decided to build our custom waterfront home, we hired BACORP Building Group because we felt we could trust them. We had numerous meetings with Alan, Kerry and Alan Jr. in the early design/building process and felt that they were qualified, reputable and honest.
Well, we were right! BACORP built us a beautiful custom home. Since they built many waterfront homes, their expertise optimized our lagoon and bay views. BACORP educated us in the building process and guided us through the project, step by step. They were patient and accommodating with regard to making changes. When we made a choice, which they felt was not a very good choice, they took the time to explain their reason in detail and gave us appropriate options from which to choose

We can honestly say they are perfectionists, expert builders and wonderful people.

They really worked with us. They made us feel that our dream home was just as important to them as it was to us. They were enthusiastic and they had our best interest at heart. We can honestly say they are perfectionists, expert builders and wonderful people.
Our waterfront home is beautiful and very well built. Also, it is extremely energy efficient. Not Only does our home maintain a constant comfortable temperature, we have large savings on our utility bills. BACORP built us a beautiful waterfront home and getting to know Alan, Kerry and Alan, Jr. has been a wonderful experience.


Carolyn & Gary Lukowitz

Carolyn and I evaluated a number of architects and builders before selecting BACORP to design and build a home for us on our waterfront property. We had a number of unique requirements with the site as well as for the design of the home so their experience and knowledge of the area coupled with their excellent computer home-design program were exactly what we were looking for.

The entire building process turned out to be an unexpected pleasant experience… We couldn’t be happier with the finished product.

We expressed our wish list vis-a-vis a home design and they exceeded our expectations. They were patient and accommodating through the entire process—from permits, to tear down of the original structure, to turning on the switch at our new home. They were accessible and with us every step of the way. BACORP were at the site daily and no phone call went un-returned. The entire building process turned out to be an unexpected pleasant experience.
Some people have homes they want to die in. BACORP built Carolyn and I a home to live in. We couldn’t be happier with the finished product.

attention is what you get when you begin planning your new home and it continues, even after you take up residence. Quality building with friendly, personal attention – it was the right choice for us.


Phyllis & Frank Buongiorno

Over 5 years ago we contacted several builders. The one that stood out by far was BACORP. Their professionalism, expertise, honesty, and friendliness far exceeded the others. BACORP worked with us to design a home that would not only meet our needs but comply with the requirements of a small lot on the water. We even requested an extension to the foundation after it was completed; to which they were completely

accommodating. Just recently (after almost 4 1/2 years) we noticed some minor cracks and nail pops. We asked BACORP to recommend someone who could do the required repairs. Surprisingly, they dispatched personnel to do the spackling and then, even painted the repaired areas!! They have always been available and most accommodating in standing behind their clients. We have been in our house for over four years now and we couldn’t be happier. Thanks to the entire staff of BACORP.


Fred & Joanne Setter

We are completely satisfied and impressed with our choice of BACORP as the builders of our new waterfront home. Their friendly yet very professional approach to the entire project from concept to finish was extremely impressive. The overall quality is absolutely superb and we love it. In our opinion, two items that totally sets BACORP apart from

We are completely satisfied and impressed with our choice of BACORP as the builders of our new waterfront home. Our house was delivered on time as promised.

other builders is that our house was delivered ON TIME AS PROMISED and they don’t love you and leave you afterwards. A simple and quick phone call always gets minor growing pains remedied. Considering that we were temporarily in between houses during the construction period, the fact that BACORP came through with flying colors and delivered on schedule has forever earned them our thanks and high recommendations to anyone in the market for a reputable, quality builder.

The Coordination of the various Subcontractors was also important in implementing our Energy goals.

Physician’s Office

Dr. Dennis Novak, M.D.

Alan Baker Sr. of BACORP Building Group has helped me construct and outfit my business offices since 1978. BACORP has consistently provided reliable service at a reasonable price. Working with Alan has always been an enjoyable experience, a collaboration of ideas which he made into reality. The BACORP team consisting of Kerry, Alan Sr. And Alan Jr. have completed each of my projects at or before the promised completion date. Several years ago, BACORP expanded the size of my practice by essentially adding a level and a first floor addition including site improvements while my office continued to function as normal. No days were lost, all regular employees were able to work their regular hours and patients were accommodated at their regular appointments. For the final blitz of the project, we closed on Friday, and came back Monday morning to a finished office space including interior renovations to the first floor completed.

BACORP has often provided MORE than the contract called for. That’s right, I said “more!”

At the completion of the project, something has been quietly added or upgraded at no additional cost. Kerry, Alan Sr. And Alan Jr. Have always been available for guidance when the wear and tear of an active geriatric practice took its toll on the building, often sending a crew at no charge. Hiring BACORP is the start of a friendship.
