I jumped at the chance to work at Gillani Homes .. a company that combines positive attitude with experience and knowledge. I am so happy that after several years of working in various realty companies that I have found a real estate home where not only do we care about our customers we care about our colleagues as well.

Why I came to Gillani?
Enthusiasm of course. Dil's love and passion for the business breathed new life into me. Last year when I got into the business I came in full steam ahead. After a while I hit sort of rut. I was ready to make a move to another company. When I spoke to Dil about it I agreed to meet with him and hear what he had to offer. After just one hour I was so impressed with Dil as well as his vision for his company and where he wanted to take it. I asked him how many agents he had working for him and he told me 17. I reached across the table and shook his hand and said, "make that 18." I would much rather be on the ride going up than at a company at the top of its game with no where to go but down. In my 4 months here at Gillani Homes I have closed 3 homes, listed 12, and have 4 under contract and 2 in acceptance. Enthusiasm breeds enthusiasm. He is a hands on non-competing broker. He is there every step of the way to guide and assist you to help you grow your business. Here at Gillani it is very much a team atmosphere. We are all ready, willing, and able to help one another. I can't think of another company here in Staten Island that I would rather be at. Maybe that's why they call us, "Staten Island's most trusted name in Real Estate."

“I started working with Dil when he was working as a real estate sales person with a team of other agents which worked with him to handle his overflow of buyers and sellers. When he opened his own real estate sales company, Gillani Homes, I naturally followed him to his new company. Dil is a dream broker to work with. True to the initials of his name he is Dependable, Innovative and a Leader in the industry. I would highly recommend Dil not only to clients to market their property for sale but also to agents as Gillani Homes is the company to hang their license with on Staten Island. Everyone in the real estate industry should talk with Dil Gillani and find out for themselves why working at Gillani Homes would be the best thing they ever did to advance their real estate career!”

I joined Gillani Homes a year ago after beginning with a small brokerage, then going on to two large companies where I became lost in the office shuffle. I am averse to the coffee klatching and complaining (typical in a large office)--negative energy and what a waste of time! I have known Dil Gillani for quite some time and was always impressed by the positive aura surrounding him.

Dil, our leader, has shown me the way—positive energy, leadership, enthusiasm, always finding a way to accomplish greatness, and always a kind word of encouragement. I am greeted by a happy smile when I enter the office, and the teamwork at Gillani Homes is evident--we are there for one another.

Dil is a genuine person and teacher at heart. Real estate aside, he is always contributing to the greater good of the community, helping along everyone he meets. I have personally known Dil since 2005 and have been fortunate enough to not only have been trained by him but to have developed a friendship with him that will last a lifetime. Rather than tell you about my sales record, I would rather tell you about a person who will help you realize that you hold the key to your own sucess in this business... or as Dil puts it: "When you are ready, the teacher will appear."

If you are looking for a broker to work with I would refer you to Gillani Homes. There are many reasons why I chose to work there but the main reason is because of Dil Gillani. Dil is the most enthusiatic person I know. He really loves what he does and it shows. Within a few minutes of talking with Dil I felt very comfortable. He has always been available for my questions and has really taken a personal interest in ensuring my success in the business. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, Dil is honest and staraight foward.

I joined Gillani homes nearly one year ago and its been a very successful carreer move. The weekly meetings with a training session and the advanced technology thats at my fingertips has dramatically increased my revenue.My business has changed course and has definitively put me into the 21st century.

I also have been given the opportunity to start my own team and I now manage the VERNAZZA TEAM at GILLANI HOMES.This new concept in the Realty world has caught on nationally and Gillani homes and the Vernazza team are in the forefront. This concept gives all parties involved various advantages.

One of the reasons for joining Gillani Homes, may have been the warmth that I felt when I first came into meet with Dil. After working with another real estate for just about 7 years, before trying on my own as a broker for two years and having a Broker who was a great person to work with and made his office comfortable and easy to work for, It was hard to find the same feeling again. But I felt the same warmness when I spoke to Dil. I feel when you are not happy somewhere you do not work to your potential wether it's on your own or working for someone.
When I met with Dil for the first time and walked into his office I felt a similar feeling as I did when I first started in the business. I do believe when you are happy and comfortable you do seem to work to your full potenial.
