Testimonials

"Through our shared network we discovered the Naylor Mill property was going to become available and when we learned Gillis Gilkerson could bring in Zoetis, we wanted to be a part of the deal. This opportunity was advantageous for the customer, Gillis Gilkerson, the bank and the community."

"Back then I owned Mangles, a women’s clothing store and Gumby’s Galleria next door. I needed a builder – I was just a real estate guy. I sold it to Palmer Gillis and he made it look beautiful. We re-did the whole site and transformed it into a functional space that contributed to the energy and activity on The Plaza."

"Gillis Gilkerson saved us, that’s for sure!  We have a great working relationship and consider Gillis Gilkerson business partners because they listen to our needs, provide solutions and have helped us grow over the years.  We are looking at expanding again soon and won’t hesitate to turn to Gillis Gilkerson for help."

"The thing we respect the most is how Gillis Gilkerson creates an atmosphere in which everyone feels a part of the “team.” It is refreshing to do a project in which pricing is competitive, the schedule is aggressive and yet the atmosphere on the job remains professional and cordial. Such a situation is few and far between in the construction industry."

"I am writing to express our thanks and appreciation regarding Headquarters Live. The building looks fantastic and Bayside Fire Protection was proud to be associated with the project. The project was as well run as any we did last year. Chris Gilkerson’s involvement with fire sprinkler issues began prior to design to the end of the project with the accelerated occupancy permit issue. It is rare that an owner/developer/general contractor immediately addresses problems and makes decisions."

A word from our clients...

"I was looking for office space in Salisbury to relocate. I knew I wanted to be downtown because it is close to home and I like the environment. The Gillis Gilkerson property was the answer. As soon as I walked in the door – I was sold. Brad and Joey went above and beyond with keeping a historic face on an old property while renovating and freshening up the interior. I feel right in this space and connected with a thriving community."

"We as the States Attorney’s office wanted to make a statement to the community and our citizens with taking a run-down building in the heart of downtown Salisbury. We had reports that this building prior to our occupancy had criminal activities and we wanted to help fight blight in our own community that we serve. The building facade is something that our employees, visitors, and citizens can all be proud of."

"When treating children who are victims of trauma you can’t have a sterile atmosphere. We were given the opportunity to give input on the space and share our needs. They listened and now we have a kid-friendly space that is calming for the children and their families. We now have space for all advocates to come together to help these kids tell their story. It is a dream come true."
