New franchise meets market demand
Ready to go: Jennian Homes Wanaka owner, Nathan Simon, and New Home consultant Jessie Webb.

Jennian Homes new Wanaka franchise is meeting strong market demand from a wide range of clients.Spawned out of Jennian Homes Central Otago early this year, the franchise was established after the need for a stronger presence in Wanaka became obvious.
The franchise is co-owned by Nathan Simon and his wife Shelley, a registered nurse who runs her own health-related business.Nathan, a registered building practitioner who comes from an architectural and building back-ground, recently completed the rebuild of the Upper Clutha Rughy Clubrooms before starting with Jennian.“
Jennian Central Otago approached me to see if I would be interested in the Wanaka franchise. They could see significant opportunities here for Jennian Homes,” Nathan says.
He has not regretted his decision.Previously just four or five homes were built by the group in Wanaka each year, but the local presence is paying early dividends.“Now we’re looking to start seven homes in the new year alone,” Nathan says.
Nathan was attracted by Jennian Homes’ solid 35 year history and the robust systems that have been implemented.“There’s a large support network behind each franchise.”“In the 35 years Jennian Homes have never failed to complete a house so there’s that reassurance.”
In addition to Jennian’s own commitment, the company is a member of Registered Master Builders which provides a guarantee of completion of work and of the quality of workmanship.“We’ve also got the strongest defects warranties out of all the home building company’s so we will rectify anything until 36 months after completion.”
Nathan says this is important as every house has a variable settling in period after it is built. The Wanaka residential construction market is buoyant, especially with several new subdivisions available or coming on stream, including special housing areas.
Jennian Homes Ready Range plans, which feature designs from 102sqm to 176sqm, are ideal for special housing areas.There are also numerous other design options to suit virtually any site or location, including architec-turally designed houses.
Jennian Homes Wanaka is currently building a a strikingly designed duplex in Northlake, one of Wanaka’s premier residential developments, well located close to schools, Lake Wanaka and the Clutha River.

The kitchen, living and dining areas are well positioned north to capture light and create an easy indoor-outdoor feel.“Each unit is a perfect example of what will fit on a 400 or 500 square metre site which is a common size in today’s market.”
They are also a reflection of Jennian Homes commitment to quality; Jennian franchisees have won more House of the Year awards than any other building brand. “All our homes are designed and built to award-winning standards while continuing to be offered at exceptional value to our customers.”
