What Our Customers Have to Say

I loved the house, the people, and the experience. The builder and everyone along the way was wonderful!
-Cathy from New Jersey
I want to let you know how pleased we are with our new house built by Great Pocono Homes. The total experience was a professional one with the human touch. Everything that was agreed upon and promised was done. Dealing with Mike G. was no pressure and excellent. All of his contractors were professional and offered help after the house was done. When we are ready, Great Pocono Homes will build my next home.
-Dennis and Barbara from South Jersey
It was a very enjoyable process working with Great Pocono Homes. The GPH team communicates clearly and frequently and my wife and I felt fully informed every step of the way with our project. As most know, building a house can be stressful , and often times the stress is due to miscommunication with the builder. This was absolutely not the case with GPH. The staff are true professionals and had a positive and good-natured attitude during the whole process. This is the fourth house we built from scratch (first with GPH). This has been by far the smoothest experience we've had with building a home and we highly recommend the GPH team to anyone looking to build in the Pocono region.
-Brian from Bucks County, PA
It's hard to believe you can still get a great home in the Poconos for under $100,000…..don't let the price fool you. No shortcuts here! This is the third home we are building with Great Pocono Homes and we could not be more pleased with the attention we received during the building process.

Great quality, honest and reliable service and the most competitive pricing in the region.

We would find it hard to consider anyone else other than Mike and his team to build our dream home!
-Chris from Cherry Hill, NJ
My new home in the Poconos is great! It was an absolute pleasure dealing with all the nice people at Great Pocono Homes. I've always dreamed of living in a chalet in the Poconos and I could not believe how easy they made it. They accomodated my every need and had a "can-do" response to all my requests. I could not be happier.
-John from Bucks County PA
Great Pocono Homes built our mountain home several years ago and we were very happy with the process, from start to finish. We have recommended them to friends and recently had them do some additional work to our home as our needs changed. They were, and still are, available for any questions or concerns. They were easy to work with and responded in a timely manner at all times. We would highly recommend them with no reservations!
-Carol and Stan from Newtown, PA
To everyone at Great Pocono homes. Thanks for all your good work. We are extremely happy with how everything turned out. Thanks for being so available and putting up with us along the way. You were a pleasure to work with.
-Ken from Staten Island, NY
I received a post card in the mail with that now famous $99,900 logo. I talked my husband, who was somewhat reluctant, to "just go look." We loved what we saw. Mike was very informative and helpfui and never once made us feel like we were going to be pressured into signing or buying something. We could'nt believe it! We left after about two hours, got a good education, and in that short time learned what it took to build a house on our lot. We were surprised to see how easy it was to get a second home in the Poconos. We plan to retire there in about ten years, but in the meantime we get to enjoy our beautiful new vacation home.
-Kerry from Philadelphia
We built two homes with Great Pocono Homes. One to sell and one we thought we might use as a vacation home. We had the first house sold before it was finished, which spoke to the great value in GPH homes. The second house, which we ultimately decided to sell too since we did so well on the first, sold soon thereafter. The experience of building one home can be stressful, so needless to say we were worried about our decision to build TWO!. It went very smoothly and we're looking forward to building again this summer.
-Fran ftom Langhorne, PA
We dreamed for many years of owning a vacation home in the Poconos. Finally, our dream came true. We checked out many builders in the area and decided on Great Pocono Homes. The quality and workmanship is superior. The highlights of our home by far are the (chalet) windows used thru out the home, the (raised) basement option and the open floor plan. We have enjoyed our home and will continue to enjoy it for many years to come. Great job by the builder!!
-Bryan and Julie from South Jersey
Anyone seeking to purchase property and/or a home in the Poconos would be wise, and indeed fortunate, to contact Mr. Michael D. Gilliar of 'Great Pocono Homes'. He has assisted my family with numerous real estate transactions and all with favorable outcomes. Mr. Gilliar displays a high level of integrity, responsibility, ambition and enthusiasm. We decided to use his services as we wanted professional advice and assistance in expanding our property portfolio, and a property strategist with a longer term view, not just an agent with focus on a one-off sale. His professionalism, communication and expert market knowledge exceeded our expectations and ensured a smooth acquisition process , and we were pleased to purchase an excellent property under market value with excellent capital growth potential. In conclusion, all of the aforementioned explains why we love our property and home built by Mr. Michael D. Gilliar of Great Pocono Homes.
-Gary from Whiting NJ
Great Pocono Homes completed construction of our new vacation home in the Pocono Mountains and my family has been enjoying it ever since! When my wife and I started the building process, we interviewed 6 different local builders and both of us agreed that Great Pocono Homes was the builder for us based on a number of criteria, one of which was very high on our list was their attention to the customer (us)! Being from out of town we wanted, not only someone who would build our home, but would work with us on our schedule. Mike and his team did not disappoint as they were always available to meet with us throughout the building process welcoming our weekly stops to the office, visits to the site, questions and numerous change orders without every making us ever feel uncomfortable or as if we were a bother. The team at Great Pocono Homes also guided us on a number of items that as we, new to the building process, would not have known.

After interviewing other local builders and experiencing various difficulties with simply making contact, scheduling meetings and lack of home plans and models to review and/or see, Great Pocono Homes was a welcomed relief in a builder that would build the house we wanted the way we wanted. The unknown benefit to my wife and I at the time we chose Great Pocono Homes, and the most pleasant surprise, we still have a relationship with Mike and the Great Pocono Homes team as they always make themselves available to use for questions we may have on the house, whether it's a question on the original construction, doing an addition or a question on who they would recommend locally for buying stone, a shed, snow plowing, whatever... they are there for us!

We could not be happier with the quality of our home, the service provided and the continued relationship we have with Great Pocono Homes.
