The key to the successful careers of both Jack Morris and Joe Marino is their “hands-on” experience and instinctive nature for the business. Both men started as construction tradesmen, working in the field and learning the business, literally, from the ground up. While they both possess a strong head for business and proven success as executive leaders, Jack and Joe each have a genuine heart for the nuts and bolts of building, and they carry that hands-on passion with them on every project they undertake. The range and scope of M&M Realty extends from coast to coast, with millions of square feet of retail space and thousands of residential units in New Jersey, Florida and California. The Morris and Marino family businesses have enjoyed more than four decades of outstanding relationships with key banks, industry lenders, and municipalities; earning well-respected reputations over the years as leading, premier developers.

In the course of building thousands of homes and developing millions of square feet of commercial space, Jack has maintained the same hands-on, in-the-field, on-the-job-site approach that has defined him since he built his first two homes at the age of eighteen, after learning the trade from his grandfather and forming his own company, Jack Morris Construction. In 1992, Jack and his wife, Sheryl Weingarten Morris, an attorney and daughter of nationally recognized builder/developer Allen Weingarten, formed Edgewood Properties.
