What Our Clients Say
“Gillis Gilkerson has been extremely accommodating to work with. As an out-of-town developer we face the challenge not knowing how things work in a different market. Dwight Miller has been forth coming with the information needed and is always accessible. We made some demands throughout the project thus far that he has continuously met to our standards. It is great to work with a general contractor that is always available and makes our job as developers easier.”
~ Jerry Passaro,

“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,
Mid-Atlantic Region – Catapult Learning
“Without the professionalism and know-how of the Gillis Gilkerson team, all of our fundraising efforts would not have given us the final result of a beautiful symbol of our maritime heritage on the shores of the Choptank. The project’s unique design required an expertise and adaptation to construction in a maritime environment that Gillis Gilkerson was able to deliver.”
