A word from our clients...

"In the banking business I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Gillis Gilkerson as a financial client. Both Brad and Joey are very professional, motivated and easy to work with. They are detail oriented and make sure they have every “I” dotted and “T” crossed."

"As a business owner I know that location is everything. Gillis Gilkerson helped me find a home for my gift shop – Angello’s Unique Gifts in heart of downtown Salisbury. We are fortunate to be a part of a city that exudes energy and activity. Being located in a downtown that is on the cusp of transformation was the perfect solution for Angello’s Unique Gifts and the revitalization of downtown Salisbury. Gillis Gilkerson helped us find our nook and I think we fit in well."

"I have had the pleasure of working with the Gillis Gilkerson team on the Wicomico County States Attorney Office. I am consistently impressed with the team in their efforts to improve our community. I have also worked with all of them individually on different projects in the area and all of them are hard-working, intelligent, and action oriented people. It was a pleasure doing business with them and I look forward to working with the Gillis Gilkerson team in the future. Thank you for all you do for our community."

"I have never worked with a better group of young professionals. The Gillis Gilkerson team cares about you and your business. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. They are great business people."

"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."
