A bit about us
G.J. Gardner Homes Far North opened in April 2005 and as of 2017 has been independently owned and operated by father and son duo Kalie van Jaarsveld Jnr and Kalie van Jaarsveld Snr of 2k Construction.
The van Jaarsveld clan originally from South Africa, have called New Zealand home for over 15 years. Before joining the G.J. family Kalie Snr worked as a builder and for the past nine years has had his own construction company in Auckland, while his son worked as a quantity surveyor in Auckland before taking a role as an estimator for G.J.’s in the Far North in 2015. The beautiful winterless north certainly has many benefits and these two enjoy a great work life balance, with Kalie Jnr being an active member of the local rugby club in Kerikeri and also enjoys spending time with his family and friends while both father and son relish getting outdoors and going hunting.
The Far North team understand that you are an individual, and you have unique requirements when building a home. By working together with you, they can design and build a home that suits you, your lifestyle, and your needs.
They have a wealth of local building experience and knowledge to offer you. Combining this with "New Zealand's Number One home builder", this team have built a reputation that ensures all customers will receive excellent service, quality workmanship and quality product. It is the commitment to their customers that has made G.J. Gardner Homes Far North, the success it is today.
"I want to help make the whole experience for every client as enjoyable as possible."
- Kalie van Jaarsveld Jnr

From March 1st 2012 changes to the Building Act 2004 mean that building work of homes affecting the structure or water envelope (as when building new homes), will be classified as Restricted Building Work and is required to be carried out by competent, appropriately licensed building practitioners. At G.J. Gardner Homes, all of our franchises operate within the requirements of Licensed Building Practitioners.
