East Gippsland Home and Lifestyle

6 | HOME & LIFESTYLE 2019 If you’re looking for a local builder who will give you hon- est and upfront service with- out any gimmicks, call in and see the team at G.J. Gardner Homes East Gippsland. “It’s our honest upfront approach that provides higher customer sat- isfaction levels than any other na- tional builder,” G.J. Gardner Homes East Gippsland director, Michael Ellett, said. G.J. Gardner Homes are Aus- tralia’s most trusted builder, as voted by consumers on Product Review for 2017, 2018 and 2019. With 30 years of experience in the building industry, locals, Michael and Helen Ellett, are the proud owner/operators of G.J. Gardner Homes East Gippsland. The company is big enough to get great buying power, but small enough to provide great customer service. This is what one of their cus- tomers had to say: “Our home is a custom build and I must say that we took our plans to seven builders in town and G.J. Gardner were the only ones who were happy to give us a quote, and then to help us bring that quote in under budget. They were the only ones in town who listened”. “We boast an extensive selection of custom designed homes avail- able to choose from that can cater to your needs, land, lifestyle and budget,” Michael said. “Plans can also be customised specifically to your requirements or you can bring in your own design. “Whether you are looking for all- inclusive house and land packages in East Gippsland or you are con- sidering a knock down and rebuild solution on an existing property, anything is possible thanks to highly skilled professionals.” To make life even easier, G.J. Gardner has its own colour selec- tion centre at its Bairnsdale office and takes the time to guide you through the process of selecting your internal and external finishes. “We are locally owned, employ local trades and use local suppli- ers. Our local team will guide customers through the process and ensure money stays local,” Michael said. First-class customer service, fast build times, a full-time qualified G.J. Gardner Homes director, Michael Ellett, pointing out features in one of the company’s homes. carpenter supervising builds and homes built above Australian standards set the company apart. The best advice Michael can offer potential new home builders is not to sign a building contract without knowing all the costs. “Make sure there are no provi- sional sums and look into the in- clusions,” Michael said. “Here at your local G.J. Gardner Homes we pride ourselves on being able to deliver high quality homes that feel architecturally unique and in line with your lifestyle.” The company has a proven track record, winning multiple cate- gories in the East Gippsland Busi- ness Awards. “Our quality and attention to de- tail is supported by customer re- views we can stand by, such as ‘you get told when you build that there will be things you’ll need to get fixed afterwards, but the quality of the house has been so good, that there’s been nothing that’s needed to be done’. How’s that for top quality?” From the minute you walk in the front door, right through the sales, contract, construction and after care process you will be guided all the way. The majority of homes come fully double glazed as standard, not to mention the custom made joinery, timber fix out, high level of insulation and attention to de- tail that is put into every new home built. “We proudly support local not- for-profit organisations through our Community Growth Program where we donate a percentage of the contract price from every build to a local organisation of the home owner’s choice. We also sponsor various local sporting clubs and organisations,” Michael said. The choice is easy. “It’s gotta be a G.J. Gardner Home.”
