Since its inception in 2007, Gallery Homes has created more than 500 new homes for individuals and families in Volusia County. Gallery founder and CEO Bob Fitzsimmons is a multiple-time winner of the JD Power “Highest in Customer Satisfaction” with new homes award, bestowed on a region’s Top 20 builders with the highest levels of satisfaction throughout the new-home purchase and early ownership. In addition, he has been selected as Builder of the Year three times and inducted into the prestigious Hall of Fame by the Volusia Building Industry Association.
For more than three decades, Mr. Fitzsimmons has been recognized as a well-respected Certified Residential Contractor in the Sunshine State, currently working with buyers of single-family homes in the communities of Ridgewood Crossing and Huntington at Hunters Ridge in Ormond Beach, and many houses built on buyer’s homesites throughout Volusia County. From 1980 to 1993, Mr. Fitzsimmons was Vice President of a national homebuilder before founding Masterpiece Homes in 1994 which he later sold. “There aren’t many privately held home builders left in Volusia. If you want a home and want to know where the people are who build it … we are right here,” Mr. Fitzsimmons said in a recent interview with The Daytona Beach News-Journal.
The quality of growth in Volusia County is very important to Mr. Fitzsimmons. “I’ve been in this community for over 30 years,” he said. “Most of my children – and now six of my grandchildren – reside in DeLand. All the families of Gallery’s employees live here, too. We are fully invested in this community and are proud of our contributions to it.”
Building high-performance energy homes equates to year-round savings for the homeowner. Gallery Homes are not only built to look great, they outperform other new homes in terms of energy savings, provide a healthier interior environment, and because of our attention to detail, provide decades of enjoyment.
“Our promise is straightforward,” Mr. Fitzsimmons said. “A quality-constructed home at an exceptional value, using the latest technology and carefully selected materials.”
Our mission is to create a workplace where all our associates can thrive. A workplace where everyone’s contribution is valued and respected. A place where we can pursue our passion to provide high quality value-engineered homes for our family of home owners.
Embracing this mission statement and philosophy will enable us to accomplish our goal of providing some of the finest homes available anywhere. We will enjoy strong relationships and friendships with our customers, vendors and tradesman for years to come. Our long term success depends on us treating our clients as our friends. When we accomplish this goal our customer’s needs will always come before “making a sale.” When they do choose us, it will be because they recognize the value we place in providing them our absolute best effort.
“People don’t buy what you do. They buy why you do it.”
