SALISBURY, MARYLAND – June 13, 2023 – Advisor George Merritt of NAI Coastal proudly collaborated with development partner Gillis Gilkerson (GGI) to bring Meineke, a nationally recognized mechanic and auto maintenance provider, to 939 North Salisbury Boulevard in Salisbury, Maryland. The longtime home of Harmon Motors underwent significant redevelopment, resulting in a transformed site that now helps to revitalize the Route 13 corridor.

“This property’s transformation is a great example of our team’s ability to provide comprehensive real estate solutions to our clients,” said Merritt. “In working with our development partner, Gillis Gilkerson, we were able to negotiate a lease that encompassed a full-scale renovation of the entire site. From site selection to final move-in, this was a team effort that I am extremely proud to have been a part of.”

In order to maximize the site, Meineke worked alongside GGI’s lead developers to thoughtfully design a layout that would accommodate high vehicle volume. In addition to office space, the building features six service bays complete with roll-up doors. Boasting the latest automotive technology, Meineke’s expert technicians and mechanics are well equipped to provide top-notch repairs, maintenance, and diagnostics for a wide range of vehicle makes and models.

“Great collaborative effort was put forth by both our team and NAI Coastal,” said Tyler Barnes, President of Gillis Gilkerson. “George Merritt, Advisor with NAI, identified the property and negotiated the lease terms with Meineke. From there, he connected them with our construction team and we were able to provide the cost estimates necessary to solidify the deal.”

NAI Coastal and Gillis Gilkerson routinely collaborate to deliver comprehensive real estate solutions across the Delmarva Peninsula. Through this partnership, clients are spared the hassles of sourcing each service independently and are often saved both time and money.

“The expertise brought forth by all parties was instrumental in achieving Meineke’s vision. This partnership is a great example of the power of teamwork and our commitment to delivering exceptional results. We are grateful for the opportunity to collaborate to bring this project to fruition,” says Barnes.

Merritt collaborated with Dann Gladnick of DSM Commercial, representative of the tenant. For more information on this lease transaction or to inquire about other properties, contact Advisor George Merritt at or by calling (410) 543-5115.
