Since 1997 we have built over 20,000 homes in New Zealand

The G.J. Gardner story began in 1983 with Greg Gardner starting his building firm based on the principles of uncompromised quality and value. He built homes designed to meet individual customer’s needs within a committed time frame and quickly established a great reputation.

The formula was such a success that G.J Gardner Homes grew to be Queensland’s largest home builder and in 1995 Greg decided to franchise the business with locally owned and operated offices using the same proven formula to build quality homes across Australia.

In 1997, enterprising New Zealand builders seized the opportunity to bring the successful formula here, and G.J. Gardner Homes almost immediately was on the path to success. Their vision was to become a team revered for their integrity, commitment, dependability who delivered great homes and an enjoyable building experience to all customers.

Just four years later, in 2001, G.J.’s had grown to become New Zealand’s favourite home builders, building more homes than any other housing company.

2014 was a big year with G.J. Gardner Homes celebrating construction of their 10,000 home in New Zealand. A huge milestone which would not have been possible without such a great team following the same great principles of building homes designed to meet individual customer’s needs with uncompromised quality and value.

And today internationally G.J. Gardner Homes has built over 28,000 homes with franchises operating across New Zealand, Australia and also U.S.A. G.J.’s continue to build a reputation for reliability and for being an organisation that both our customers and suppliers can trust. We continue to live by our vision:

To have every customer recommend us to their closest friend
