Expansion / Consolidation
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.
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.
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.
Christian Phillips was exceptional to work with. He communicated quickly and thoroughly with us every step of the way and was a true team member in the new location search.
Blue Water Development Company has dealt with Chris Davis for several years now. He has helped us in the sale and purchase of numerous properties up and down the East Coast. Chris’ knowledge and contacts in the hospitality industry make the transactions run smoothly and efficiently.
We thank Christian Phillips and the NAI Coastal team for their stalwart support and hard work in helping keep the Chamber in Downtown Salisbury.
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.
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.
Merry has demonstrated a commitment to making long-standing relationships in the community, which is the result of her consistently offering a high level of service that is characterized by trust, honesty and integrity. Her broad experience gives her a strong understanding of the market and industry, as well as the unique relationships in the commercial real estate business.
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.
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.
I hired Greg to help me fill a specific commercial real estate need. He found the perfect property, location and building, met with the owner and negotiated a fair deal for all parties. I would not hesitate to use Greg’s services and expertise again.
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.
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.
We’ve worked with Merry in the past – she consistently produces great results. The space she guided us to fits our needs perfectly, and the lease was executed swiftly, with ease. We look forward to working together in the future.
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.
Merry’s consistency in finding the right tenant for the right property shows her deep level of commitment to her clients. It’s clear that her focus is on the business relationship – and delivering results.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Our experience with NAI Coastal was fantastic. George sold our property in less than two weeks. He and Chelsye were with us through the whole process. They were knowledgeable, helpful and wonderful to work with.
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.
