Helping Customers Feel the Joy

Customer Reviews

I have been so impressed by the GJ Gardner Ballarat team. From the very beginning of my experience with them, they worked hard to ensure that my dream came to life. They listened to my requests and were willing to modify plans to make it happen. The entire build they kept in contact with weekly updates and were quick to make any adjustments or modifications when needed. 100% would recommend to anyone, especially as a First Home Buyer! – Abbey P, VIC

G.J Gardner Renmark was just so fantastic! From the initial consultation to handover, we were never left wondering what was happening. Communication was absolutely amazing. Building during COVID I thought would be stressful but they made it so easy. The house is perfect and we could not be more happy! – Kaitlin and Jack , SA

Our experience with GJ Gardner, Sapphire Coast:

1.) Excellent Communication. We were kept informed throughout the build. We were interstate and a lot of the communication was via phone calls and emails. We asked multitudes of questions, and nothing was ever a problem. They listened and were willing to spend time explaining what we did not understand and also gave suggestions and options on how to improve the design. Throughout the building process, we found everyone to be very approachable and easy to talk to.

2.) Flexible -willing to design what we wanted.

3.) No unexpected costs and the home was completed a month before the handover date.

4.) Very high standards -the tradies did an excellent job!! Good quality products were used.

5.) Minor problems were dealt with promptly and resolved.


We were absolutely delighted with our home. We highly recommend GJ Gardner, Sapphire Coast. If we were to build again, we would definitely be a returning customer!! – Chris, NSW
