About us

There’s no substitute for experience and flawless communication when it comes to real estate development. The best properties come together if and only if each hand knows exactly what the other is doing. The dream-team of Frank Fineo, Leslie Norton Fineo, and Jim Matuszewski brings to the table almost a century of combined experience in their relative fields, plus a unique synergy which allows them to work together beautifully, executing exceptional properties, and inspiring each other to take their work to the next level.

Mr. Fineo brought decades of experience as a real estate attorney and broker to his more recent work as a developer. His knowledge of the market, real estate law, zoning, and local building codes make him uniquely qualified to direct development projects with confidence and ease. This expertise has contributed to $75 million dollars sold in new construction and $40 million dollars in projects currently in contract or under construction. His wife, Leslie Fineo, is a creative powerhouse with an extensive background in dance, fashion, and interior design. Jim Matuszewski brings along more than 25 years of luxury building experience, maintaining both the creative eye to work through design challenges with Leslie and the methodical, meticulous approach needed to problem-solve with Frank. The FDG team is nothing short of a finely honed machine, turning out some of the most spectacular homes in the Hamptons.
