Customer Testimonials

"The Board of Directors and the Executive Director of the Food Pantry of Waukesha County wish to share with you what a pleasure it was having Gerald Nell as the general contractor for the Pantry's remodeling work. In particular, Andrew Braatz did an outstanding job coordinating the trades and communicating with everyone involved with the project, and he wrapped up the project in a timely manner."

-- Karen Tredwell, Executive Director

"I wanted to make sure to congratulate and thank you and your team for a job well done. You guys did a great job and deserve high marks. Everyone in your firm was a pleasure to deal with from the beginning to the end. There were no issues, no disagreements and no disappointments."

-- Dan Ribnick, Senior Vice President

"One of my greatest insights into the firm and why I would especially recommend them is their talent pool of highly professional people. And the firms commitment to building quality. The staff were tremendous to work with, but what also thrilled me were the onsight professionals who gave their input to me to continuously achieve our goals."

-- Joseph Becker

"I wanted to write you to let you know how pleased we are with the service we have received from Gerald Nell, Inc. We have used Gerald Nell for projects as small as repairing a piece of fascia to as large as designing and building our new corporate headquarters. The professionalism of your people and the quality of their work have impressed us."

-- John P. Horning, Corporate Operations

"All the people we have contact with have been courteous and responsive to our comments. It is also comforting for us to know that the high level of service does not stop once the building is finished. We have had the opporunity to use your company for remodeling, maintenance, and to lease vacant spece. You truly are a one-stop contractor."

-- James Podewils, President

"I would like to say thank you to you and all your employees for everything you have done to successfully build one of the nicest Kwik Trip Stores we have. It has truly been a great pleasure working with you. Your people stand out above most general contractors I have worked with. They handled all changes and problems with great ease. We had a few challenges along the way, but you worked through them with NO hassle!"

-- Construction Supervisor

"Healy Awards, Inc. just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with all aspects of your company's performance. Our job went extremely well. Your supervision was excellent and your guys were super. I can not complain about anything. I would gladly recommend your service to anyone."

-- Scott Kesley, President

"I would definitely recommend Gerald Nell as a general contractor. They are easy to work with, don’t “nickel and dime” you for every single “extra” and the fact that most of the work is done “in house” means it gets done faster, with greater continuity and less aggrevation."

-- Dr. Michael S. Bubon

"We also want to thank your people on the job and your subcontractors. Every one was very professional and showed a good, pleasant attitude throughout the job. A really nice touch was the cleanup effort done every Friday afternoon so our members could tour the project during weekend services. It was also very moving to have so many of your people attend the dedication service."

-- Jack Henry, Building Committee Chairman

"With such short notice the response and sense of urgency was impressive. In addition, Paul and his contractors were very professional and thorough with their jobs. The contractors worked with our employees with ease while keeping Super Products on its aggressive time line. Super Products asked for numerous changes which needed to be quoted, or Gerald Nell was asked if they could just handle it. Both situations were done comfortably with each party."

-- Shannon Herbst, V.P. of Operations
