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.
