About G.J. Gardner Homes Wollongong

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 Wollongong 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 Wollongong is a member of the Illawarra Business Chamber and Illawarra Women in Business. They also support a wide range of local groups and charities, including the Variety, the Children’s Charity, Football South Coast Association, Wollongong University and local primary schools and sporting teams.

With over thirty building years experience between them, Nathan and Sean are looking forward to working with Illawarrra locals, turning dreams into reality.
