Chris and Tori were very helpful throughout the entire transaction process. They answered all of our questions quickly and effectively and helped the transition of ownership to run smoothly. Tori was very knowledgeable and super responsive… a true asset to the team.

David Flessas, Caroline Self Storage

I am very thankful for the effort Joey Gilkerson displayed during our search for a new location for Peninsula Alternative Health. Given our industry we had some out of the box needs and requirements, and Joey was able to satisfy them all. The location that he was able to secure on our behalf is close to downtown, easily accessible to the bypass and will allow us to best serve our patients throughout Delmarva.

Anthony Darby, Peninsula Alternative Health

As we approach our 60th anniversary we are excited to expand into a larger space and join the Northwood Industrial Park Community. We are thankful to Joey Gilkerson for helping us find the perfect property to continue to provide our clients with top-notch service at a reasonable price.

Bill Chambers, Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce

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. 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.

Rick Day, Vision Lodging Solutions

Through our shared network we discovered the Naylor Mill property was going to become available and when we learned Brad Gillis’ team 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.

Debbie Abbott, Bank of Delmarva

We had a great experience working with Christian on our recent purchase. The NAI Coastal team was very effective in managing our due diligence process and helped us to execute a smooth transaction. We look forward to continuing our fruitful relationship with NAI Coastal as we build out our east coast footprint.

When the NAI Coastal team approached me and shared their vision for this building, we knew it would be a great fit. They presented creative real estate solutions and helped us navigate each phase of the transaction, a true one stop shop.

Shawn Eisemann, East Coast Titans

When we came to Joey for help in finding our first location, he was able to help us meet all of our specific requirements at the time. With the extreme growth that our business has experienced over the past few years, our needs have vastly changed. Joey was able to create a solution that offers our dispensary a seamless transition and allows our business the infrastructure needed for continued success.

Anthony Darby, Peninsula Alternative Health

I’ve worked with Chris Davis for a long time and his knowledge of the real estate market on a local and regional level always proves to be a huge resource in navigating transactions. He and his NAI Coastal team played an essential role in leasing a large portion of our building.

Jeff Wade

I’ve worked with Chris Davis and the NAI Coastal team in the past and had full confidence in their ability to advise me through my 1031 Tax Deferred exchange. Their access to the Shore’s top investment opportunities, both on and off market, proved to be a huge resource. All of the properties purchased were sourced from their portfolio and proved to be quality, sound investments.

Brian E. McKinley, Cool Branch Associates

George perfectly understands my vision and expansion plan for the nutrition clubs. He is actively working to help us grow our footprint from Cambridge to Ocean City and has provides us with great location options. With George’s help, we have been able to navigate the leasing process seamlessly and look forward to his continued representation.

Jose Sanguino, Next Up Nutrition

Joey did an extraordinary job explaining every facet of negotiating a lease that would be beneficial to both myself and the property owner. He detailed the ins and outs of triple net leasing and assisted me in drafting and presenting a proposal that was accepted within a few days. As a result of COVID-19 we faced some additional challenges, but Joey worked closely with both parties to reach an amicable transition. He was continuously attentive to every detail of the inspection and transfer of property. I would give my highest recommendation to Joey Gilkerson and NAI Coastal. They were instrumental in the transaction that helped to make my dream of having my own practice a reality.

Dr. Kevin McKamey, East Park Integrative Chiropractic

George listened to what we needed and showed us a lot of beautiful options in the Downtown area. He was happy to answer any questions that we had and made the entire process incredibly easy. Thanks to George, we found the perfect place in the City Center and are excited to be a part of the growing community here in Downtown Salisbury.

Morgan Brewer, Studio Antheia

Chris was aware of our desire to open a production studio in Salisbury. He was supportive and able to provide some great insight into possible locations. He knew that taking our time and finding a space that felt right was a priority and made sure that all of our boxes were checked with the Northwood property. I’m excited to get to work in the building and make it my own.

Abbi Custis, AbbiArt

I have worked alongside Joey on numerous city-building projects over the past five years. His ability to capitalize on opportunities, advocate for causes in which he believes, and work toward community engagement has made him an invaluable collaborator and friend.

Ryan Weaver

When Joey says he “can get it done,” he keeps his word. As a tenant in one of the properties he manages, we are so pleased by the speed at which he responds to requests and his communication about progress when things take time. Rare qualities in this world.

Robbie Raffish, ASAPR

This is the second mobile home park we have purchased under Chris’ representation and each time, he has proven to be a huge resource to our team. His understanding of the industry’s complexities allows him to conduct the basic due diligence required to vet opportunities. He knows our criteria and consistently presents us with quality investments.

It was a real pleasure working with Christian. We were told by many that our timeline was unprecedented, but he made it happen for us. We are very appreciative of all Christian’s efforts to get this deal across the finish line.

Tori went above and beyond the call of duty in assisting us in our search, and her professionalism and responsiveness are unmatched.

The NAI Coastal team has played a huge role in the establishment and expansion of our Salisbury location. They’re consistently and proactively on top of our space needs and have proven to be creative, effective problem solvers together with their development partner, Gillis Gilkerson. We have worked with NAI a number of times and wouldn’t hesitate to turn to them again in the future.

Nick Taghipour, Pure Family Fitness

Chris Davis’ understanding of the development approval process was extremely helpful as we navigated contract negotiations and the buyer’s due diligence period. He represented our interests well and ensured that we struck a fair, equitable deal for all.

Rob Lord

Chelsye was wonderful to work with. I struggled to find a place for a long time, so I was thrilled to have Chelsye working with me to find a space and landlord that could accommodate my needs. She was proactive in our search for space; and when we found a suitable place, she was professional and prompt in relaying messages and keeping me abreast of her results. My partner and I will be slowly expanding our portfolio, and as we begin to have need for guidance and assistance, we will certainly be reaching out to Chelsye and NAI Coastal.

Joe Del Puppo

Working with Christian Phillips and NAI Coastal was a flawless experience. From start to finish, he made the whole process stress free. I would refer anyone in the market to purchase or sell real estate to Christian. In fact, he and I are already working together on another project.

Greg Herling

NAI Coastal’s alliance with Gillis Gilkerson proved to be an asset throughout the course of this lease renewal. Joey acted as the landlord representative, helping to navigate the nuances of the lease agreement, while also providing insight from a developer’s perspective. It was a true one stop shop for brokerage and construction services.

Brian McKinley

The NAI Coastal team led by Chris Davis, Tori Brown and Chelsye Phillips-Hutton provided outstanding service to us in marketing our two newly constructed warehouses in Cambridge. In a challenging economic climate with rising interest rates, they negotiated a lease with a national tenant and sold both buildings at top dollar prior to the completion of construction.

Shelby and her team at NAI Coastal were an enormous help as we worked together to identify an appropriate distribution center. Each step of the way, she worked closely with our team to ensure all needs were met, thoroughly.

We had a great experience working with Chelsye Phillips from NAI Coastal in securing our new commercial rental. Her professionalism, expertise, and excellent communication skills made the process seamless and stress-free. We highly recommend her services to anyone looking for commercial real estate solutions.

Nicole Bishop-Herr, Blackwater Apothecary

Thank you to Chelsye Phillips-Hutton for her professionalism, dedication, and diligence in helping my company obtain this lease! She never wavered, even when the going was difficult, and she stayed focused and kept the process moving forward. I can’t thank her enough for all of her efforts and I’m looking forward to moving into our new location soon! She is the best and I will be sure to recommend her and NAI Coastal to everyone that is looking for a real estate professional.
