Rodney’s G J Gardner Homes
The Rodney franchise of G J Gardner Homes are celebrating outstanding success at the recent G J Gardner Homes International Awards ceremony held in Coolum Australia. In addition to receiving the top award for services by a sales team in New Zealand, the Rodney franchise took away for the first time the top international award on offer of International Franchisee of the year. Local franchisees Mike Fraser and Ross and Elaine Morley say they are absolutely over the moon at receiving the honour. After competing against 89 franchises worldwide, this was an outstanding achievement by our team and really is a reflection of all the hard work they have done throughout the year, says Mike. The award is based on a number of categories, including the number of houses built, but it is also heavily weighted on the results of client surveys undertaken on clients who have had their house completed during the year. Mr Fraser added that their number one business goal at the beginning of last year was to win the major award. With the international growth of G J Gardner Homes worldwide, franchises have recently been opened in the United States and South Africa, so winning the award was becoming increasingly difficult. “To be honest, we knew we were in with a chance but really weren’t that confident about being successful. When the announcement was made it was an absolute amazing feeling. What about next year? Well, you can bet we will be giving it our absolute best shot to win it again,” says Mike.
