G.J. Gardner Homes wins most trusted home builder - again

G.J. Gardner Homes have won the Reader’s Digest 2019 Most Trusted Brands award in the Home Builder category for another year.

Winners are selected based on an independent survey of 1,500 people who choose the brands they recognise as the most genuine, authentic, reliable and consistent.

Grant Porteous, G.J. Gardner Homes New Zealand’s managing director, said he was jubilant to learn they had again won this award.

“Our New Zealand-wide team will be ecstatic, our entire business’s success is driven by our customer’s trust and satisfaction. Hence our long-standing vision, to have every customer recommend us to their closest friend, being the beacon that leads everything we try to do as a team.”

G.J. Gardner Homes has a proud heritage in New Zealand having been the clear market leader for over two decades. The business, 100% NZ owned, is made up of the NZ Master franchise and 30 locally-owned and operated franchises, the majority of which are husband-and-wife teams. The business has built over 16,000 homes since 1997 and is a significant employer throughout the country.

Grant and wife Ellie, who own the G.J. Gardner Homes Master Franchise and lead the NZ team, believe it’s a great model to deliver not just great homes, but as importantly, a fantastic building experience to customers. With G.J.’s you get the best of both worlds, the attention you’d expect from a local, with the reliability of NZ’s most successful and trusted building team.

“Winning this award and receiving this recognition is an honour, nothing is more important to us than how our customers and New Zealanders see us, thank you to all those that voted for us and to all our customers.

“We understand that when it comes to building your home, nothing is more important than being able to rely on those people responsible for its construction.

“G.J. Gardner is dedicated to a policy of certainty, trust and transparency, and we believe every person who builds a new home should be able to enjoy the experience.”

This belief led to Grant and Ellie personally writing and publishing Home Prep – a free guide to the home building experience in New Zealand, regardless of who you choose to build with.

Giving back is also important to the G.J. Gardner family and they are proud sponsors of a wide range of not-for-profit organisations and sports clubs in New Zealand including Ronald McDonald House, the Westpac Rescue Helicopter, the Big Buddy programme and Keep New Zealand Beautiful.
