“I don’t give 5s out very often, but this place deserves a 5! We were looking for a fairly large piece of granite (about 5 ft by 4 ft square) to serve as our kitchen island, but one caveat, it has to somewhat match our existing granite in our kitchen. Gereli was not the first place we looked at for granite, but was definitely the last! Jack was immediately welcoming and showed us the granite available in the warehouse. Few things to keep in mind when shopping for granite: clean warehouses, the ability to select your slab of granite (no bait and switches) and the short turnaround for install. Just from a badly lit cell phone pic, Jack immediately knew the granite color was Giallo Ornamental (other places thought it was Venetian Gold and other colors I can’t remember). We found the slab we thought matched the best. Jack gave us a quote and we told him we’d reach out to him soon. The next day we went back to Gereli and signed the contract. Their granite, salesmanship and customer service was simply the best! Jack’s manager/owner (I wasn’t sure who he was) even brought out two matchbox cars for our kids to play with and keep! Within a week, Gereli installed our granite island and it’s now the focal point in our kitchen/living room. We will definitely be repeat customers when we remodel our next home!”
“Dear Gereli Family,
I can’t tell begin to tell you how much Rich and I like the granite in his kitchen. It truly is a work of art – “mother nature” doing beautiful things. We have the tile floor. Backsplash was tiled this past weekend and now we are waiting for the appliances. We look forward to having the house completed so we can have all of you over. We both thank you for your generosity and friendship. We look forward to many more great things to come with you all. Many thanks!”
Sincerely, Brian and Kristal
“Dear Gereli Family,
I can’t tell you how pleased I was to return from vacation to find my new granite topped work station. The Gialo Fiorito is the perfect compliment to the tiled floor and backsplash. I look forward to you visiting our design center so you can see how nice it looks. I am exciting that we’re working together again and are referring clients to each other. Our partnership is very important to me. I appreciate your generosity and thoughtfulness.”
“I want to thank you for the beautiful GT granite table top. We are actually using it in the office and the store looks great with our sofa and painted furniture. We truly appreciate your business and friendships.”
“I want to express my appreciation for the wonderful way in which the two of you, the other members of your family and your entire staff assisted my wife and me in the process of redoing our counter tops. In one specific, your suggestion that Steve Savage would be able to remove and replace the tile above our backsplash made it possible for us to choose the color we wanted without settling for a combination that really would have required pretending we didn’t see the angular blue accent tile that clashed with the mariachi granite. Steve, by the way, works quickly, with great expertise. He is very concerned about doing things well and doing things right and wonderfully skilled at solving virtually any household construction problem one can put to him.
Everyone we worked with at Gereli Marble and Granite seemed to go out of your way to help us. You not only helped us in every way to make the right choices but, in addition, you showed hospitality of spirit that, in my experience, was unique in any business transaction. Though I declined to accept your offer to share your French fries when I interrupted you lunch, the genuine spirit of hospitality you expressed touched me.
The young man who came to measure for our counter top was extremely careful and thorough and it showed when the counter top was delivered. When your workers installed the order everything fit to perfection, even where it was pieced.
It would be an understatement to say I was impressed by the professionalism and quality of the work done by the men who installed the counter top. They were absolutely thorough in making sure that joints met to perfection. Your workers spent a good part of their time using shims to get the countertop perfectly seated with our old cabinetry. The result is that the appearance of our cabinets has been raised several notches. Where the counter top, because of its length, needed to be pieced in one place your staff worked until there was not the slightest disparity in the flow of the surface from one piece to the next. The caulk line where the pieces are joined would never be seen if you didn’t know where to look. The same is true of the caulking for the back splashes. They are caulked so perfectly that the counter top and back splash almost seem to be of one piece.
Everyone one of your workers, as well as Steve Savage, who did the demolition and plumbing showed great concern for treating out house with care not to cause any damage and to make sure that, when they left, everything was cleaner than when they arrived.
Finally, taking into account the high quality of your relationship with me as your customer and the high quality of the work you did, I was very pleased with the cost.
Thank you for making working with you a true pleasure.”
C. Thomas Holliday, and for my wife Susan Goff
“Our granite counter tops were finished to perfection and our selection perfectly matches our decor. We certainly are pleased to have selected your company.
It was our pleasure to witness true craftsmanship at the installation.
We also had the good fortune to have, at your suggestion, John Alverez and his crew prepare the kitchen for the installation and then re-connect all services. John was on-sight during the entire installation and it was apparent that he and Mustafa work nicely together.
Ours was not a simple job! The cook island top had to be cut on sight. We are thankful to have had two very dedicated men on top of every detail. You are to be complimented to have such men working for you and we thank you for your service to us.”

“I didn’t give 5-Stars only because this was my first experience having granite installed, so have no one to compare to. We are however completely satisfied with all the work and delighted with our new kitchen. I priced granite at a couple of other places including Home Depot and always put off the upgrade because it was too costly. I was actually shopping for flooring at Lumber Liquidators in Newington when we spotted the Gereli Shop next door and decided to look in. The manager, Ali Gulsen was most informative about all the different solid surface counter tops available and even took us to their work shop to see how the granite was cut and prepared. Their price for the granite I wanted was lower than Home Depot even, especially with the sink and faucet included so we signed the contract.
In light of the worrisome review posted here by Pamela H my wife and I closely watched the entire installation and repeatedly questioned the work crew along every step. They patiently explained everything and laid any worries aside. While sealing the granite the next day I spotted one pea-sized chip in the middle of the counter top and called the store to find out how best to fill it. Ali told me not to worry and he sent a worker back within hours to fill it. He did such a good job we can’t even see where the hole was.
Although we’ve only had the counters installed for a week now, they are holding up great and look beautiful. The work was done very quickly and neatly by a friendly, knowledgeable and skillful crew. I would recommend Gereli Marble and Granite to my family and friends.”
“We are very pleased with the quality and appearance of our new kitchen. Ali and Adnan were terrific to work with, and stayed right at or under budget during the whole project. Their quote was also significantly less than any other contractors — we wanted something nice looking, but were on a strict budget since we won’t stay in the house for much longer. Gereli replaced the cabinets, granite counter tops, and a subcontractor that they often used laid the floor (we just bought the tile at Lowe’s.) We’re in a townhouse with a small galley style kitchen, so it’s not very big, but were still very impressed they managed to complete the entire job in about 10 days (which with a toddler was very appreciated!) Thanks Gereli!”
“Adnan was amazing to work with! We had to put off our kitchen project for a year, and had a pretty small budget for our kitchen (fortunately, it’s a pretty small kitchen.) Gereli replaced the cabinets and granite counter tops, put in a new sink, and laid the new tile floor. It looks really wonderful, and was far less than other quotes that we received. We have far more cabinet space than we thought was ever possible, and it’s a much more functional kitchen. It was also nice that they kept to their original timeline, too; from beginning to end, the job was completed in 8 days.”
“Excellent customer service from the initial inquiry to the finished product. The granite installation in my large kitchen went flawlessly, looks stunning and I couldn’t be happier! This is the second project that Gereli’s has done for me. I talked to other companies before returning to Gereli’s but they came up short. Gereli’s knows their product, controls all aspects of installation and the price is competitive. I wouldn’t waste my time looking elsewhere in the future.”
“I saw the Gereli Marble & Granite Ad in the Chatholic Herald and I called; Ali came to my home that same evening; looked at the project, took measurements, and sent me a proposal the next day which we both agreed on. Work started soon after and during the entire process, the Gereli team (including Adam and Ali) were very involved; visiting and inspecting the progress to ensure I was getting the best of the best. They treated the project as though it was being done in their own homes. Overall, I was very, very satisfied the the results. They didn’t only do a great job but I felt like I found another family. I’ll hire Gereli Marble & Granite again and again and I’ll recommend them very highly.”
“When I ran into a problem with my general contractors granite provider I called Gereli to the rescue. Within a few business days we had our granite installed in the hall bathroom. They offered me excellent prices along with the excellent service. 3 years ago I Gereli remodeled my kitchen again excellent work.”
“Adam from Gereli’s came recommended by my realtor. She has another client use his services and I was impressed with their work. I was given a quote and sent pictures of samples and making a decision to go with Gereli’s was an easy one once I received quotes from other contractors.
The day they came to do the job they laid down blankets to protect my floors and cleaned up their mess before they left. I am very happy with the installation of the counter top, faucet and sink.”
“Excellent customer service. They installed the same week that I requested. Most places generally require two weeks. Everything he said he was going to do was completed as discussed.”
