“If it wasn’t for the help from Gillis Gilkerson, I wouldn’t be able to get out of my house. From the wheelchair ramp to the handrail, the company made it possible for me to walk outside my home. I can’t thank them enough for their time, effort and patience.”

~ Elizabeth Anderson,
Salisbury Resident

“Palmer and Dwight personally came to see me to talk about the development. I am very comfortable working with Dwight and know that Gillis Gilkerson has a reputation for getting things done and getting them done on time.”

~ Todd Ferrente,
Developer,
Park Place Plaza

“Throughout my 17 years engaging on these types of projects, I can honestly say that Mike (Truitt) was one of the best contractors that I have ever worked with. Throughout the process, Mike provided superior customer service and his communication far exceeded my expectations. Most importantly, he delivered the building on time and with the exact specifications that were discussed. In addition to customer service, Mike and his company provided high-level workmanship. It was clear that Mike took pride in every phase of the project and that pride showed in the final product. Every part of the build out was delivered flawless. Both the interior and exterior of the building are beautiful!”

~ John Strzegowski,
Executive Director,
Mid-Atlantic Region – Catapult Learning

“The building is 100 years old and has continued to deteriorate for the last 40 years. To be honest, I wasn’t very positive about trying to save the building in the beginning.I thought it was a waste of time and money. When Gillis Gilkerson started working with our engineers and demonstrated experience with this type of project, I was relieved to say the least. They had contractors lined up and everything went according to plan. I would be tickled to work on another project with Gillis Gilkerson.”

~ Bob Donnelly,
Snow Hill Public Works Director
