Support for builder

SUPPORTERS have come forward to defend Clarence Valley builder and franchisee of GJ Gardner Homes Rick Fischer, following recent allegations made against him in the media.

The Daily Examiner has received seven letters and emails from clients and contractors outlining the positive experiences they have enjoyed with GJ Gardner Homes Grafton.

John and Fay Heath said GJ Gardner built their Townsend home in November last year and they were "more than happy" with the result.

Mr Heath said he had been involved in other building projects where there had been problems, but experienced none with GJ Gardner.

"We were there from when the slab went down to the finish and there were no problems," he said.

"If any issue came up they fixed it."

Meanwhile, Diane and Kevin Townsend said they had recently relocated to Grafton from Brisbane, also contracting GJ Gardner Homes to construct their new home.

Mrs Townsend said that during the building process, she had regular contact with Rick Fischer and his tradesmen, meeting on site at each stage of building to discuss the progress.

"Any problems or queries that arose were acted upon as quickly as possible," Mrs Townsend said.

"GJ Gardner Grafton showed professionalism and attention to detail throughout the building of our new home. We are extremely grateful to all at GJ Gardner Grafton who completed our home in record time and to our satisfaction.

"We would not hesitate to recommend GJ Gardner Grafton to anyone wishing to build a home."

Retired real estate agents Graham and Lynelle Robb said that they had seen the workmanship of a lot of builders over the years and after seeing several homes built by GJ Gardner Homes, they selected them to build their own home three years ago.

"We have been extremely satisfied with their workmanship and professional service at all times."

One of GJ Gardner's own contractors, painter Ben Lovrekovic said he had been working with the franchise since it began.

"I would like to voice my support for Rick Fischer as a fair and honest operator," Mr Lovrekovic said.

"I have been impressed by the way they have put themselves out to help those left devastated by the Coffs Harbour franchise and see this as a reflection of his good character.

"Sadly the comments made over the past few days have not reflected the whole truth and much damage can be done to a person's reputation, business and those who support them in endeavouring to give people their dream of a new home."
