Over the past 15 years G.J. Gardner Homes in Whangarei/Kaipara has enjoyed a great reputation through building quality and value for money homes for hundreds of Northlanders. As of October 2012, the business now has new owners - Peter and Pamela Butler of Butler Holdings Ltd.
Having recently moved up from Auckland with their three daughters aged 6 months, 2 and 6 years, they are excited about joining the leading home building business in New Zealand.
“G.J. Gardner Homes has a great reputation in the Northland area and we plan to ensure that continues – it was one of the main factors we considered before taking over the business.”
Peter has returned to G.J.’s after previously working for the head office for four years. A key focus of his role was to ensure franchisees and their staff were adequately trained to use the G.J. Gardner in-house job management system. He has been away for just over a year, still within the building industry working in a challenging management role, but is now enjoying being back with G.J.’s utilising his knowledge and experience.
Peter and Pamela believe that what makes G.J. Gardner Homes such a unique business is the vision of the organisation.
“Our vision is to have every customer recommend us to their closest friend. If we can achieve this we will have a successful business” says Peter. “Working with G.J.’s, people should expect that we will act with integrity, honesty and not only deliver a great product at the end of the day but also an enjoyable experience.”
Peter and Pamela will continue to use the same highly skilled and experienced trades-people that have been involved in the business for the past 15 years. “We are privileged to have such great staff and an experienced team of subcontractors to call on from day one” says Peter.
As part of their involvement with the community, G.J. Gardner Homes Whangarei sponsor the Men's Hockey League in Northland.
With the shift out of the way, Peter and Pamela are now concentrating on building relationships and getting involved in the community – Pamela says “It’s been a big shift for the family moving up from Auckland. The people here in Whangarei have been very welcoming and have helped us settle in really fast”.
If you are considering building or know someone who is, the team would love to talk to you.

We are retired farmers and have moved into a smaller rural property in Maungatapere. Kevin was a builder and chose G.J. Gardner Homes purely on their reputation and ability to produce some of the best homes in Northland. We are over the moon with our new home it’s just brilliant, we love it. Constrictive timeframes were essential to us as we had sold our farm and needed to be in our house on a specific date. As promised by our New Home Consultant, we moved into our home on time. The G.J. Gardner team where friendly and tended to our every need. We would sincerely recommend G.J. Gardner Homes to family and friends as we consider them to be the best home builders in Northland.

We are now living in a G.J. Gardner Home which gives us great satisfaction. We enjoyed being involved in the planning, from drawing board through to type of materials inside and out and our own choice of colours. The result was a dream home with first class materials and finish, we have had four new homes in the past and none have given us the satisfaction that this one has. We were given a date of completion and a fixed price and kept informed throughout the building process which in fact finished before the given time. Advertising is a great medium but it has to be backed with results and G.J. Gardner has fulfilled all of their performance claims. We congratulate them and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone wanting a peace-of-mind building contract.

We would like to express our sincere thank you for all of the work and the expertise that you applied to our build project. When we embarked on the process of starting a build project we were attracted to a number of designs on your website and set about adapting one of your designs to suit our family. We found your website had a number of good tools to aid us in our design process. We were appreciative that you had most of the elements of the house covered with standard good quality features. Many of these standard features work well together, and did not need to be changed at all. We were appreciative that the project reached completion without extra costs. This was largely due to the well executed planning stage of the project. Once again, thank you for our lovely new home.
