About G.J. Gardner Homes Shoalhaven

Built on Exceptional Customer Service

It all started when two brother-in-laws got together to combine their skills and take on a new challenge with G.J. Gardner Homes Shoalhaven in 2010. The successful home building duo have since expanded into the Illawarra region, mid 2015 opening G.J. Gardner Homes Wollongong.

G.J. Gardner Homes Shoalhaven is a family business that has been built on delivering exceptional customer service and affordable, quality homes to each and every client. Owners and directors Sean Vickery and Nathan Fay run their business according to five core values: building honest and open relationships; practicing what they preach through a hands-on approach; offering flexibility for the customer; embracing the local community; and creating a fun, positive team environment.

In 2014 the team was awarded ‘Winner of Excellence in Business Ethics’ in both the Shoalhaven and Illawarra Regions and from there went on to also win the Business Ethics Award at NSW State Level.

Sean, Nathan and the team believe strongly in the value of local community. G.J. Gardner Homes Shoalhaven is a member of the Shoalhaven Business Chamber and the local branches of the Master Builders Association and the Housing Industry Association. They also support a wide range of local groups and charities, including the Lara Jean Association, the Sea Change Arts Festival, Wollongong University, Variety the children’s charity and local primary schools and sporting teams.

With over thirty building years experience between them, Nathan and Sean enjoy working with Shoalhaven locals, turning dreams into reality.
