About the Builder

Marshall Berry, owner and founder of JMB Construction, LLC, is a native to Chattanooga and has been building homes for almost 20 years.  Marshall is a stickler for quality, and you can find him on the job site daily; checking in on things and making sure that everything is done and done well.  He believes in process and doing things right the first time.

Blackstone Creek is truly a passion project and is several years in the making.  As he looked to draw inspiration for the neighborhood, Marshall knew he wanted to feature styling seen more predominantly in the western mountain region.  Each home has been personally crafted and designed to support both function and style. The hope is that each person coming through the neighborhood is able to recognize the extra level of detail and care taken as the homes are meticulously designed and built.  The vision behind Blackstone Creek is one of innovation and dedication to the highest of standards and quality. 

When Marshall is not working you can find him hunting, fishing, or spending time outdoors with his wife and daughter.

What past Homeowners have to say


Sid & Gayle Lyell

"Our building experience with Marshall was very enjoyable. We felt that he was very patient and kind, and always willing to meet to discuss our plans regarding any concerns or changes. He is a good listener and never made us feel rushed in our dealings with him. In addition, he always responded to texts and phone calls in a timely manner.

His contractors did excellent work; and thus, we have been very pleased with the quality of our home. He provided added touches with the moldings and trim work. Also, while our home was being built, the outside and inside were kept immaculate by his cleaning contractor. Additionally, after completion, the punch list was attended to in a timely and satisfactory manner.

It was a pleasure working with Marshall and we would not hesitate to recommend him to other potential customers."

John & Marie Simpson

"Marshall Berry is a wonderful person, in Addition to being a great Contractor. 

We bought our home 3 years ago while under construction, and were given a date for completion that was accurate. The quality of the home and the interior trim and accents are top of the line.  

Mr. Marshall was very gracious about any changes that were needed in the construction process.  I would recommend him to anyone that wants a beautiful and quality built home!"
