Custom Home Builder G. J. Gardner Joins Forces with Denver Area Realty Company

The marketing agreement between G. J. Gardner Homes and Prudential Preferred Real Estate will benefit entry-level first time home buyers.

Denver, CO, July 31, 2009 --( Brook Swientisky, Colorado/Wyoming Master Franchisor for G.J. Gardner Homes, announces a marketing agreement between his company and Prudential Preferred Real Estate.

Prudential Preferred Real Estate is ranked as #4 among all offices in North America for Customer Satisfaction by Prudential’s Corporate home sellers. Broker/Owner Don Bobeda is an award-winning Realtor® with more than 30 years of experience in real estate sales, investment, and development. He is a Colorado Association of Realtors Director and a past President of the Douglas/Elbert Realtor Association.

“Prudential Preferred Real Estate’s thorough understanding of the Denver Metro market and strong track record of selling new homes makes this agreement advantageous to home buyer,” says Swientisky.

Both believe that there has never been a better time to build a new home. “The unprecedented alignment of historically low interest rates, low building material costs and tax incentives creates an incredible opportunity for new home buyers,” states Swientisky.

G.J. Gardner’s simplified process and international buying power provides a unique, cost saving alternative for custom homebuilding. “We can put a buyer in a custom home starting in the mid-$200,000 range including land. If the customer owns the lot, we can build the custom home for as low as $69 per square foot. This is achievable because of Gardner’s plans, systems, and bulk buying power,” says Swientisky.

Dan Bobeda adds, “Our expertise in new home sales, combined with G.J. Gardner’s unique ability to build an affordable home customized to the buyer’s specifications makes this a great match.” Bobeda, who has a background in design and architecture, was an early advocate of green building methods. “I’m really excited to be embracing the green efforts that GJ Gardner already has in place,” he concludes.
