A passion for the job and for the area
With family roots in the Rodney West district dating back more than 100 years to Huapai’s earliest settlers, owners of G.J. Gardner Homes Rodney West Matt and Rachael Lelean have a real passion for what what they do and where they’re building.
Currently building house and land packages in the heart of Huapai in special housing area Huapai Triangle, G.J. Gardner Homes Rodney West is catering for all those looking for a stunning home with a lovely green backyard space situated in close proximity to Auckland CBD, with all the lifestyle of the wild west coast.
“You’ve got the best of both worlds in Rodney West,” says Rachael.
“We are working closely with Huapai Triangle developer Cabra and our clients to identify avail-able sites which suit their needs.
“The sections are purchased by our clients directly from Cabra, we incorporate these into house and land packages giving our clients the certainty that their new home will suit their site and meet their budget. They have the ability to customise a design to suit, and they know how much their total build is going to cost.”
Matt and Rachael became the proud owners of G.J. Gardner Homes Rodney West in 2015, when the Rodney franchise was split into two to better serve its customers.
Prior to this, Matt was the general manager of the Rodney franchise and Rachael joined the business after working in leadership roles within the finance industry, becoming familiar with the G.J. family following her work with construction lending specialist Onion Home Loans and Insurance.
G.J. Gardner Homes Rodney West initiated a new in-house architectural team 12 months ago, an ‘absolute game changer’ which allows for architect, sales consultant, and client to sit down together and turn around a concept plan that fits the site and suits the client all in the space of one day.
Matt and Rachael believe the key factors in creating the perfect home are communication, understanding, and teamwork.
“By working together, our team can design and build a home that suits you, your lifestyle, and your needs,” Rachael says.
“The team’s experience and passion are a real asset for those preparing to build a new home.”
Every G.J. Gardner Homes Rodney West client is offered a fixed price contract, with every cost itemised before the contract is signed, so no surprises.
Matt and Rachael are also strict on having no provisional sums, so no cost overruns which makes it easy when applying for finance, and offering fixed building times so clients know exactly when they will be in their new home.
“We’ve been doing this for such a long time now, that we have very established build practices,” Rachael says.
“We know exactly how to run a project, we have a great team here, and great subcontractors an d suppliers, some of whom have been with us for many years.”
