One is a designer, the other an architect; both have a passion for quality and attention to detail. The husband and wife team of Bob and Jane Nettleton owns G.J. Gardner - Douglas County, serving Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, Castle Pines, Castle Rock and Larkspur.
"Actually, Bob is an architect by education and I am an art historian by education" states Jane Nettleton. "That, combined with our expertise in designing, building and restoring homes, helps us to take a team approach when helping our clients". The couple, with deep roots in Denver, have built and restored homes in some of the finest neighborhoods in the area.
Bob Nettleton has a degree in architecture from the University of Virginia. He has been in the homebuilding business since 1977. "I have extensive experience in land acquisition and development, construction management, sales and marketing, plus architecture and design." says Bob. When asked about his particular strengths, he replies, "I've been told it’s my focus on precision and attention to detail and fine craftsmanship. Also, structural integrity and incorporating energy awareness and state of the art technology are all important to me".
How will the couple's expertise and extensive experience translate to their new custom homebuilding business through G.J. Gardner? "We are looking forward to this new phase in our professional lives." says Jane. "With G.J. Gardner we see an incredible opportunity to work with younger buyers, to guide them as they design their dream home," Jane continues. "Our philosophy revolves around close interaction with the client from site selection through every phase of the process." The Nettleton's believe that establishing a personal relationship with the clients’ results in a quality home that meets or exceeds expectations while staying within budget.
Bob and Jane chose to affiliate themselves with G.J. Gardner Homes for several reasons. According to Bob, the proprietary computer tracking system allows him to efficiently manage multiple projects. This economy of scale means he can build more homes, give more people work and offer the homebuyer a quality custom home built in less time and on budget. "Also, my new access to more affordable building materials because G.J. Gardner's bulk buying means a better price for the customer."
Both Bob and Jane have been involved in the community over the years, including CASA for Kids, volunteering for a reading program and Habitat for Humanity through their membership in the HBA. They look forward to continued involvement in their new role as franchise owners.
If having an accomplished duo guide your custom homebuilding experience from concept to creation is appealing to you, then keep Bob and Jane Nettleton in mind. Whether your dream home is a castle or a cottage, the Nettleton's can help you make it a reality.
