About G.J. Gardner Homes San Luis Obispo County

Russ Goldman has worked in the construction and engineering industries since he graduated from high school in Encinitas, CA. After working in several different construction trades, he landed with a company called GLA International where he managed crews that built underground and overhead fiber optic networks. Goldman attended engineering school at ITT Tech and received an A.S. degree. Once he graduated from school, he was drawn to the civil engineering field and took a job at a civil engineering firm based out of Texas. There, he designed and managed civil engineering projects for Walmart and Lowes stores within the western Unites States. In 2004, Goldman moved to Paso Robles, CA to raise his family. He was drawn to California’s Central Coast because of its natural beauty and the lifestyle that the area offers. Goldman has family in the area and ties to the Paso Robles wine region. In 2006, he accepted a position with his family’s large general contracting company in Salinas, Calif. There, he managed large multimillion dollar commercial construction projects as well as the employee safety program. Ultimately, Goldman made the decision to start his own construction business, based in Paso Robles in 2009. Goldman finds owning his own business a challenge but also the most rewarding experience he’s had. He is passionate about the construction business and values the relationships that he has formed with his clients. Goldman strives to build the best homes at the most affordable prices in and around San Luis Obispo County.

Goldman lives in Paso Robles with his wife Holly and their two daughters Madalyn and Abigail.
