Michael W. Solebello - Principal
Michael has almost 30 years of experience in the construction industry. In the early 1980ís he began working on his own projects as an independent contractor. Deciding to develop a full-service company was a big step and in 1999 Sawbucks Contracting LLC was established to take on larger building and remodeling projects. Michael realized that in addition to quality craftsmanship clients hungered for professionalism that was sorely lacking in other companies. His hands-on experience has proven invaluable when addressing issues with actual construction, design, schedules, estimating and finance. He also has proven experience in real estate investing and the work required for condominium conversion and custom home design/build. Michaelís designs have won many Beersheba awards and he has been a part of many award winning projects throughout the New Jersey shore region. He lives in Ocean Grove and is married to Susan. Together they have two grown children, Michael and Meagan.


Kathleen Price-Ancona - Project Manager
Kathleen joined Sawbucks Contracting LLC in 2012 after spending 22 years with IBM where she gained experience across many functional areas of the company. Kathleen is an avid fan of design and renovation shows on PBS and HGTV, including "This Old House." After managing renovation projects for herself and her family, she discovered a passion for good design and quality renovations; so, she studied to become certified as a Project Manager. With Sawbucks, Kathleen maintains one-on-one contact with the homeowner throughout the process and assists in product selection. Sawbucks has designed a process to ensure that the homeowner is kept informed throughout the entire project. Kathleen manages this process with an easy to read Work Calendar that keeps the clients up-to-date on the progress of their project. Kathleen and her husband, Bill, moved to the Jersey Shore in 2006 and enjoy living and working along the small coastal towns.

Mary Pat Sweeney – Office Manager
Mary Pat joined Sawbucks Contracting LLC in 2001 after spending 20 years in the international banking industry in New York City. The bank she worked for was bought by another and she was ready for a change of pace. She gave up her full-time apartment in the city and moved full-time to her weekend home in Ocean Grove. After taking an extended vacation she began to look for local work. Having known Mike and Sue from her years in Ocean Grove, they approached her about working a few hours a week. As their business grew, so did Mary Pat’s hours and responsibilities. She is now in their office four days a week as their Office Manager.
