Testimonials

Gilbert and Sheppard Group is a knowledgeable and committed partner in the new home building industry.  The entire team is readily accessible, enthusiastic, strategic and passionate about success.  Gilbert and Sheppard was instrumental in creating a solid launch strategy for my division’s first 55+ community, generating a tremendous data base and resulting in a sales event that surpassed goals and served as a catalyst to exceed monthly sales goals consistently.  Gilbert and Sheppard has proven unequivocally complete understanding of the industry and its trends, can deliver creative messaging to reach the desired demographic and worked within the framework of established budgets to deliver results.

Betsy and the GSG team came to my rescue create a corporate tagline, logos, cutting edge website, top notch marketing materials and a well thought out sales and marketing sales center. Betsy and her team are incredibly professional and dedicated to my business; and they, well, they just “don’t drop the ball” no matter how small the detail. I have no doubt that the success I hope to achieve as a developer and builder in Atlanta would never have been possible without the personal and professional attention to detail and the promotion of Jim Chapman Communities that Gilbert & Sheppard provided.

Gilbert and Sheppard Group have a unique approach to working with their clients. Their tenure and single focus in the real estate, construction, and housing industry is unique and makes communication between the agency and builder effortless. It is refreshing to have a true partner who understand the business of home building and how to develop a sales and marketing strategy that fits their client’s requirements. They stay on top of current technology innovation, re-evaluate existing technology, and make recommendations to adjust budgets based on more cost effective, efficient technologies.
Gilbert and Shepperd help with the upfront planning, communications, and monitoring of all marketing efforts to achieve maximum efficiency and generate maximum sales while staying within the budget.
It is a pleasure to work with such experienced professionals who have a passion for the homebuilding industry and love what they do.

Being a baby boomer and having a passion to serve them led me to Gilbert and Sheppard as the marketing Guru for our Project, The Springs of Mill Lakes in Opelika-Auburn, Alabama.  The incredible amount of amenities we have and a location in the community second to none doesn’t hurt.  Yet it is the traffic we depend on that is driven to us by Betsy Sheppard and crew, as well as their active counsel on our market, our price points and the minutia of relevant aspects it takes to perfect an active adult community and turn it into a city on a hill. Coupled with her truly outstanding staff, Betsy’s personal service, willingness to travel, hands on approach, wisdom and gentle demeanor give me, the developer, the comfort level I need to proceed full speed ahead. In retrospect, on marketing, I would change nothing the next time around.

I am not sure if you are considering a company to help you design or in our case, re-design a web site, but after an evaluation of 6 companies we decided on Gilbert & Sheppard Group of Atlanta. Not only was this the right decision for the design aspect, it was definitely the right decision for AFTER the site was up and running. Few companies provide great service “after the sale,” but in the case of Gilbert & Sheppard, timely response and helpful tips are the order of the day. I have no financial interest in this company, but I do have a vested interest in my retirement community. Gilbert & Sheppard should be high on your list of companies to consider (and ultimately select) if you are really serious about a website that exceeds your expectations and provides the follow-up we all need after the design work is complete. They were referred to me by a friend and I will be grateful to him for such great advice.

When we initially engaged Gilbert and Sheppard’s services, we thought we needed a marketing plan; but with their incredible experience and insight, they helped us realize we really needed to do an envisioning session that would become the basis for our strategic plan for the future of our firm. We have implemented many of the ideas from our sessions and are a healthier firm because of their consulting and direction. I must say, the money we spent with GSG has been, without a doubt, the best money spent in years.

My corporate headquarters is in Baltimore, and when I purchased land in Columbia, South Carolina for a residential subdivision, I needed to find a firm who could handle all the details of positioning my community in the market and creating a complete program to ensure a successful effort. One of the most successful builders in the state suggested I use Gilbert & Sheppard, and it was a great piece of advice. They know the business inside out, have the support staff to execute programs, and have been responsive in every way to my needs. I could not be happier.
