GIGLIOTTI GROUP’S QUALITY CUSTOM HOMES SPAN THREE GENERATIONS


MEET THE BUILDER, A PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER SPECIAL FEATURE

For three generations, the Gigliotti Group has been building quality custom homes in Pennsylvania. With more than 10,000 homes and about 30 communities under its belt, the company has expanded from Montgomery and Bucks Counties into Lehigh and Northampton Counties.

Ron Gigliotti and his brother John took over the family business, following in the footsteps of their father and grandfather, who founded the company in the late 1920s. Gigliotti watched his family conduct business from a young age.

“From the time I was 12 years old I was cutting grass for my dad on model homes,” he says. “I was fortunate enough that I had the opportunity to watch my grandfather and my father work and see how they conducted themselves. We’re not a big company. We’re a small, family company where the focus is not always on the bottom line. A lot of the things that we do are because they are the right way to do things, not just the most economic.”

“We’re a good, creative company and we’ve been doing this for more than 80 years, so we pride ourselves on the homes that we build,” Gigliotti says. “Each home is unique and custom; we don’t just mass-produce our product. We take a lot of satisfaction in every house that we deliver.”

The company shows its pride by focusing on a select number of homes each year and encouraging buyers to make the custom and semi-custom changes they need to feel at home. Traditional American, classic European and stylish contemporary designs are in the company’s portfolio, as well as a number of homebuilding and community awards.

“We have many of our stunning and innovative plans to choose from, all of which can be wholly customized, or we will gladly listen very closely to the customer’s needs and desires, and design the perfect, fully custom home. Our talented design team has unlimited capabilities,” says Emily Fischel, vice president of sales and marketing. “Gigliotti Group is a recognized industry leader for the finest in site selection and home-building, incorporating quality, elegance and enduring value as the cornerstones of each home in the Gigliotti collection. In each home, there is a remarkable attention to detail and no two of our homes are ever alike, as shown in detailed kitchen designs to the stunning and intricate millwork packages available. Options in Gigliotti homes are limitless.”

As the housing market continues to tighten across the country, Gigliotti says the company has provided more incentives for homebuyers. “Because of the difficult market that we’re working in, we’re really offering better value and better product than ever before,” Gigliotti says. “I think builders have to give buyers a reason to buy. You have to separate yourself somehow. You have to prove yourself to people. We’ve been working very hard and have been successful at doing that.”
