Think of Gillis Gilkerson as

We are the pipeline that drives growth in the real estate industry.  We are good listeners… we take the time to work closely with our clients to learn about their wants and needs.  Then we venture out into “their” world (local community) to search for solutions that will fulfill their needs, taking into account budget and timeline or course!

As developers, we take ideas on paper and convert them into real property.

How? We identify an unfilled real estate need in any given community and look for opportunities to fulfill that need.

All projects are 100% unique.

Gillis Gilkerson has the resources to create and manage the process of development from concept to completion:

  • Strategic planning
  • Land purchase
  • Building program development
  • Turnkey project management
  • Finance real estate deals
  • Obtain necessary permits and approvals
  • Build structures
  • Market property
  • Property management
  • Purchase, lease and lease/purchase options

And through the entire process, we work well with others too.  Gillis Gilkerson works in conjunction with architects, government planners, engineers, surveyors, inspectors, contractors, leasing agents and many more players.

Regardless of the project size… we ALWAYS take time to understand and respond to ALL of our client’s needs. The Gillis Gilkerson team has a track record of completing high quality projects on time and on budget.  Proof of our commitment to our clients and the surrounding community.

A word from our clients...

"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."
