Leroy Merritt, who founded our company more than 50 years ago, often completed deals on a handshake. That level of trust and respect continues at Merritt today. We're committed to honest and fair business dealings that grow our customer relationships into long-term partnerships.
As a full-service commercial real estate firm with over 19 million square feet in more than 70 locations, we own and manage more commercial space than any privately held developer in the Baltimore/Washington area and have an unmatched reputation for our commitment to our customers.
See how we've grown and stayed true to our vision.
As a fully integrated developer, we’re proud to offer an expansive roster of in-house capabilities. Most importantly, you’ll find we have the personality of a small company. It’s the ideal combination: outstanding expertise and a unique ability to see things from a customer’s perspective.
Michele Tsucalas, Founder & Owner
"Merritt didn't just want to build us a space and lease us a space, they wanted our business to succeed. From the very beginning of our relationship, Merritt said to me, 'When you're ready to grow, we'll help you grow.'"
Joe Mezzanotte, Partner
"Merritt makes promises, they deliver on those promises, they deliver on time, and they deliver on budget."
Steve Martin, President
"Merritt employees truly love their jobs and consistently deliver solutions in a fast, creative and cost-effective manner."
True to Leroy Merritt’s vision, we focus equally on the efficient operation of our businesses and on our impact on the community—our commitment to doing what’s right, every day, for every customer.
