JoAnn Petrizzo

My real estate career began in 1987. Over the years, I have helped many find their dream home. In addition, I have been involved in redevelopment for more than a decade and consider myself very knowledgeable in the field. I have organized and participated in seminars across the country as NJ’s spokesman, educating the public regarding brownfields and redevelopment financing. A former Toms River municipal official, I was recently honored with several awards, including the Heritage Foundation’s Who’s Who 2011 & 2015, the Five Star RE Professional Award, the Italian Voice’s Who’s Who of Italian Americans, and the NJAR Circle of Excellence Award for the past 14 years, 2009-2022. As a real estate professional I have served as court appointed commissioner in eminent domain cases. I am committed to working hard for my clients to find them the perfect real estate solutions.

Realtor Associate, Marita DeCarlo: (201) 705-3017

Marita Decarlo

Born and raised in Northern New Jersey, I received my BA at Montclair State University. For my husband and I, there is no better place to raise a family than New Jersey.

Some of my happiest memories were during my 16 year career in Early Childhood Education which was followed by a 21 year position as a senior level Sales & Marketing Executive with a high-end European company. I credit all these years with honing my skills in providing quality service and attention to all those that I was fortunate to cross paths with.

Our move to Southern New Jersey, some years ago, offers us more outdoor time and a more relaxed lifestyle. Whether reading a book by the water, walking our dog or just hiking through the many parks and trails, Southern New Jersey has proven to be a perfect fit.

With our move I chose to launch my final career with ADK REALTY, a specialized boutique Real Estate Agency. The ADK philosophy is giving the client the best personalized service and experience we can provide. I respect and appreciate those qualities in a company.

I always take pride in providing my clients exceptional service and results that will move them into their next chapters. I'm still excited by each new opportunity to play a part in my clients' future. I look forward of being of service to you!

James DeSimone

After 33 years of owning our successful real estate company in Bergen County, my wife Milena and I have moved to the Jersey Shore. We moved to a retirement community in Toms River and what a change it was for us. Here, the taxes, maintenance and association fees are actually affordable. There are beautiful clubhouses, social events and something to do every day. Please accept my invitation to come down and see for yourself. I was so impressed with the professional service Milena and I experienced working with ADK Realty that I had no doubt about hanging my license here. Our office is located at 1071 Rt. 37 West, Unit 9, Toms River, NJ, where I work as a broker associate. If you or anyone you know is thinking of shore retirement or maybe just finding a summer home, please call me and I'll be happy to help. Your phone call or referral would be an honor.

I selected ADK Realty as my agency of choice because they are a full-service, local, independent agency specializing in residential and adult community sales and service and their commitment to HONESTY and CUSTOMER SERVICE.

I’ve worked with clients on the sale and purchase of their real estate, including residential, adult communities, vacant land, and investment properties.

My experience also includes the following:

  • Providing market evaluations for clients and attorne
  • Lending institutions and courts for estates.
  • Guardianships and trusts; served as a court-appointed REALTOR® commissioner in eminent domain.

Guardianships and estates; administered as broker/owner of three offices overseeing hundreds of successful sales for buyers and sellers (1992-2012).


Peter Mulligan After 16 years as a New York City police officer and 15 years as a school bus driver in New Jersey and Florida, plus many other jobs in my life mixed in, there came the time when I had to retire due to health concerns. Now that I have been blessed with good health once again, I decided to try my passion as a real estate salesperson. I am committed to HONESTY and CUSTOMER SERVICE and assure you that any referrals will be handled with my personal best!


Marlene Stec I have lived in the Toms River area for 46 years. I have worked in the real estate business for the past 36 years and have been a member of the Million Dollar Club for several years. My extensive marketing has led me to many transactions getting to the closing table, of which I am very proud. I am offering the benefit of my expertise in working with buyers and sellers. It takes a full-time professional REALTOR® to guide you through the process, especially when unexpected issues arise, and that is not the time to wish you had a better REALTOR. I am the proud mother of four adult children and three beautiful grandsons.


Robert Turkenkopf I have been in sales all my life selling electronic components, real estate, autos and have now returned to the real estate industry.
