G.J. Gardner Homes has built a reputation as the new homebuilder you can trust. G.J. Gardner originated back in 1983 on the Sunshine Coast, when Greg Gardner realised the need for building quality homes on time and on budget.

Greg grew the company to eight regional offices with 65 office staff and 65 sales staff, building as many as 1000 custom homes a year. G.J. Gardner traded successfully with an established reputation for great value and quality. On this basis, Greg made the decision to turn G.J. Gardner Homes into a building franchise, as a means to give his key people a share of the business.

The first G.J. Gardner building franchise commenced operations in May 1995. Today, there are currently over 85 G.J. Gardner building franchises operating throughout Australia, New Zealand and America, supported by 8 Master Franchises.

G.J. Gardner has been successfully building different homes for different people for twenty-five years and has now built over 25,000 homes worldwide.
