When it comes to knowledge and expertise, Bill Stenberg brings more than 25 years of experience in new home construction, sales and design to the table. Prior to becoming the owner of G.J. Gardner Homes - Loveland, Bill served as Division President for two national home building companies. He started as a construction superintendent and then worked his way up through the ranks. "It gave me a broad range of experience through exposure to the areas of construction, purchasing, sales, real estate and design," states Bill.
Franchise offers flexibility and freedom
When Bill opened his G.J. Gardner franchise in 2008, the concept was new to Colorado. The systems, support and bulk buying power offered by G.J. Gardner gave Bill a competitive edge in the market. "It gave me the ability to offer the buyer more home for their money and to build it on time and on budget," he says."Owning a franchise allows me to have the flexibility and freedom that is not found in larger home construction companies," Bill adds.
Not only is Bill doing what he enjoys, but he's also doing it in an area he loves: Northern Colorado. He likes the region's pace and beauty and the sense of community among area residents, making it a great place to live and do business. "This franchise gave me the opportunity to return to this wonderful part of Colorado," Bill says.
Custom designs require creative solutions
According to Bill, each job has its challenges when it comes to pure custom building. "Often buyers have had an idea for a dream home in their head for a long time. Many bring their own plans with them and it's up to us to help fulfill their expectations at a price that works for their budget," states Bill. "For example, we worked with a couple that had been told they could not afford to build their dream home. They were about to give up and sell their lot and settle for something less. When we showed them what we could do they were blown away. They got so much more than they expected at a price they could afford," he concludes.

G.J. Gardner Homes - Loveland is an active member of the Home Builders Association and Bill is a Certified Green Professional. Bill has built 2 homes with Habitat for Humanity and other affordable housing projects. He also serves on the Construction Advisory Board for the City of Loveland. "It's important to give back," he says. "We look forward to becoming more involved in the future."
