Who we are

Here at John G. Mitchell, Inc., our Palm Beach County roots run deep.  

West Palm Beach native John G. Mitchell – a graduate of Forest Hill High School and Florida Atlantic University – founded his general contracting firm in 1980, converting an old dairy barn into a shop and office. He later extensively renovated the 1925 house built by his grandfather into the comfortable offices where we still welcome clients.

When John passed away in 2011, he left behind countless dear friends, as well as a general contracting firm built on a solid foundation of superior craftsmanship and a strong record of service.

We specialize in the construction, renovation and remodeling of luxury residences. Our central geographical market is the Town of Palm Beach, and virtually all of our jobs are sold by referral. The homes we construct range in size from bungalows to large estates, and our renovations run the gamut from kitchen remodeling through whole-house gut and rebuild.

But what we do is only part of our story. How we conduct ourselves is equally important, and we believe we’re only as good as what our most recent customer says about us.

The cornerstone of our philosophy continues to be customer service. We try to always do our best, do what we say we’ll do, and perform in a timely manner. We still complete almost all jobs without contracts, because a meeting of the minds and a firm handshake are more important to us than any document.

Longtime operations manager Ken Lewis, who’s been with us more than 30 years, now owns John G. Mitchell, Inc., and holds the State of Florida Certified General Contractor’s license that qualifies our company.

We look forward to hearing from you and working together on your next project.
