About J. Lorton and Company

Meet Our Ocean County Team

John Lorton built his first custom home in 1982, and he spent the next few decades cultivating an integrity-focused firm. Trusted by generations of home and business owners, J. Lorton & Company has become a Jersey Shore mainstay and one of the region’s fastest-growing builders. Now, we’ve expanded our roots to coastal South Carolina—where we recently opened our Horry County sister location. It’s been an exciting journey, and we can’t wait to serve our neighbors on the SC coast.
