Testimonials

Our beautiful home design and built by Gort Custom Homes—Gerry Neilan, a truly great experience from start to finish. Not only is the house five stars, Gerry was always available, always on the job over seeing the work. He met and exceeded deadlines. You will never have to worry if Gort Custom Homes is your general. Gerry builds a very solid, strong home—does not cut corners and his special signature touches (“Gort style”) have always been an extra compliment when we have visitors. 

We were on our way to look at another builder’s house when we passed Gort Custom Homes’ model home and decided to stop and have a look. We fell in love with Gort Custom Homes’ model home and the workmanship. We made an instant bond with Gerry. It was our lucky day. Please feel free to have Gerry bring you over and see for yourself…”

“Gerry built my parents’ home in 1992 in Oak Brook, IL when I was still young. Having lived in that house for over 15 years, there was no question that my wife and I wanted him to build our new custom home. Gort has earned our loyalty; this is reflected in the 2nd custom home built by Gort for our family. Throughout our whole building process, Gerry was always accessible and gave us several creative ideas from his years of experience in building custom homes that we used in our home.

As our dream home broke ground, Gerry allowed us regular supervised visits to see the progress of the home and to take pictures and video of the week’s progress. No matter how careful we were in making our selections, there is still anxiety that comes with wondering if our selections matched and made sense. Seeing our dream home develop and with Gerry’s assurance about our decisions, the anxiety was removed and our minds were put to ease. We couldn’t be happier in our new home and are beyond pleased at the end result.”

“In today’s world, Gerry is truly a rare builder. After listening to nightmare stories of friends who have had custom homes built, we never dreamed our experience would be this wonderful. We have truly enjoyed our building process. Having never built a home before, we were very nervous. But Gerry walked us through a step-by-step process and told us everything we could expect. He listened to what we wanted and he is someone who stands behind his product after the sale. A very warm and hearty thanks to everyone for their part in the creation of our wonderful new home.”

“I just wanted to let you know that the service I received from your company went beyond any service I received from contractors in the past. The input, the ideas, the craftsmanship, and those little extras your staff showed me, taking time to explain every detail to me. I also want to compliment you and your staff on completing the job ahead of schedule. Thanks for everything.”
