transformed it into a show place.

A construction project can be long, stressful, and very expensive. Jim's ability to
provide a solid, reliable, competent, and quality product, in addition to excellent
service, is a winning combination.
In addition to Jim's impeccable work ethic, his personal manner puts one at ease,
making Gerold Brothers a pleasure to work with.
Irwin Weiner, ASID
His knowledge and experience, as well as his ongoing efforts to
stay current with the newer building materials and practices have heen invaluable.
His millwork shop produces some of the finest products imaginable, and the
carpentry work on site is flawless.

For years I have known and worked with Jim Gerold of Gerold Brothers, and it has always been a pleasure.
Jim Gerold's experience, expertise and professionalism make for a highly successful collaboration
between client, builder, and architect. Gerold Brothers' attention to construction detail is equal to the
craftsmanship produced by George, Mike and Chris in Jim's Cabinet and Trim Shop. The precision and care with which
Gerold Brothers craft roof flashing, construction connections, insulation, waterproofing, is equal to their
architectural moldings, flooring, built-ins and cabinetry. The end result is a piece of architecture that is
built to provide the client with years of enjoyment.
Working with you over the past years @ Owls Nest has been a pleasure. Rarely have I worked with a builder who was as
professional and helpful as you and your team. From the permitting process through the quality of detailing on all of the
landscape construction your work has been superb. You and your subs have always delivered the highest quality
craftsmanship. Even with a project of this scope and complexity the process has always been well organized and your
suggestions have been invaluable.
Having worked closely with some of our Nation’s finest Architects and General Contractors
over the past 35 years, Jim Gerold stands out as an extraordinary talent. In addition to being
diligent and capable, Gerold possesses a wealth of knowledge and experience which is evident
in structural integrity as well as the aesthetic finishing of the truly exceptional residential
properties which he has created.
Despite the dramatic decline in craftsmanship and quality in the U.S. housing market in
general, Gerold remains a beacon of excellence, and one of the few professionals I would want
to contract and manage the building of my own home.

Smiros & Smiros Architects, LLP has had the pleasure of working with Jim Gerold and his group of select craftsmen
during the past ten years on several large scale projects. We have tested Gerold Brothers with ever increasing
challenges and the Gerold Team has consistently met and exceeded our expectations delivering excellent service,
quality and ultimately value to our clients.
With Jim Gerold on a project we rest assured knowing that our design intent will be implemented.
James Smiros, AIA
I am a designer of fine jewelry and in my business its integrity, quality of product and
value that gives my customers a sense of confidence. Jim Gerold has performed in a
similar manner building our prized possession, our home. His knowledge of quality and
the technical aspects of building a home are second to none. Jim is a wonderful
person who will take your hand and lead you through the process as painless as
possible. In fact, my wife and I enjoyed building a home, which had a lot to do with
Jim's personality. If you are looking for everlasting quality then Jim Gerold is the one to
We began our ongoing relationship with Gerold Brothers back in 1995 and have continued to the present day.
Among the several hundred construction companies that we have worked with in the past 25 years of practice,
Jim Gerold ranks with the very few outstanding builders at the top of the industry.
Alfred M Sutton, RA
There is a “feeling” of comfort and trust and solidity for me when I go to a truly
well-built house at one of my sites, knowing every aspect of that house is built of the
highest quality, honest effort and heartfelt pride of the contractor and each of his subs. It’s
palpable for me and is a real thrill for me. That is how I feel arriving at the site!
Alexander D Latham III
high level security consultancy for sensitive, multi million dollar projects, I developed a
rapport and trust for Jim, and knew I could confide in him when discussing the rationale
for the implementation of various security requirements within these projects.
In addition to Jim's in depth knowledge of the design, development, construction of
large projects, he has a keen appreciation of intricate security needs required to thwart
any attempted compromises of his clients' safety and welfare. Jim's attention to detail,
ability to integrate passive and active security devices into his overall plan,
dependability and punctuality make him, truly, a man "worthy of trust and confidence."

Simply put, Gerold Bros. Builders & Renovators made our dreams a reality. Our family can't
speak highly enough of the fantastic job that .Tim Gerold and his crew completed for my family,
hom start to finish. Since we built our home over three years ago we have been so content. I must
say I'm at ease with the results. We are very pleased with .Tim and his amazing crew. They were
always very detail oriented and had immaculate attention to detail. We have received many
compliments on our custom built home over the past years. Our experience with .Tim Gerold was
outstanding from a great price to exceptional service, but by far the best part are the results . .Tim
not only did what he promised but they exceeded our expectations. We truly can not be happier
and would highly recommend Jim to any of our friends or family members who are in the market
to build and design a new home. We wouldn't think of any other builder if we were in need of
another home in the future. Thanks for doing such a great job and still being there to ease any
situation we may have!
Drs. Themis & Mary Kamilaris
We will be eternally grateful for crossing paths with Jim Gerold, and entrusting him with one of
the most important projects we will ever undertake. Jim's outstanding qualities are integrity and
pride. He approaches issues honestly and openly, and approaches construction with conviction
about craftsmanship and materials.
Josh and Toby Werber
Now that our extension is completed and we have time to enjoy it, we just want to say
how pleased we are with your work. Without exception, all of your people did an
outstanding job. John, the spackler, Joe, the marble man, Tommy, the electrician,
Frank, the plumber, the air conditioning people, etc. were superb. Special admiration
goes to Hugh, whose artistic skills are noted every day we walk into the room or look at
our deck. Your son, JP was a delight.
Overall, more than 35 people were involved with the project. You are to be
commended. In this day and age when pride in ones work is difficult to find, you
Austin and Barbara Frishman
My wife and I decided on Gerold Brothers Builders after interviewing and researching over 10
builders. Jim's homes stood out from amongst the others by possessing quality, and design that
the others didn't even come close in comparison. He is a builder whose pride and attention to
detail is evident in all that he does. His ability to explain many of the construction issues which
came up in "laymen" terms enabled my wife and I to make certain decisions in an educated and
informed manner. There's a lot to be said about a builder who 2 years after the completion of our
home will still come over with just a phone call. For those of you who are looking for a builder you
can trust, and truly takes pride in what he does, Jim Gerold is the man. To quote the old cliché,
"they don't make them like this anymore" is truly an understatement when it comes to Jim Gerold
How do we thank you enough for all your help with building our house? I think back to all times you stopped by location and how you always gave 110%. I know building a house is a big commitment to be part of. The quality of work you, your son, and your team of craftsmen has done is beyond our expectations.
