We act as Owner’s Representatives at all stages of the design, approval and build process through furniture selection and landscaping. Our Clients are spared full-time involvement, yet are assured that we are tirelessly working to oversee the project with the sole function of protecting their interests. We also bring a great big helping of energy, enthusiasm, taste, know-how and creativity to boot. MASTERFUL PROJECT LEADERSHIP Gardner Group creates the timeline and budget for your project, and is ultimately responsible for the project complying with both. These days the scope of projects we see in most Park City luxury homes require coordination at a level above the General Contractor to ensure the best results. We oversee the work of the General Contractor and all the other professionals involved, a cast of hundreds, making sure they get the attention they need to overcome obstacles and get everything just right. STUNNING INTERIOR DESIGN Gardner Group is responsible for the selection of materials and finishes for both the interior and exterior of the home. Our Client’s involvement can be as much or as little as they desire. We put together “selection boards” for each room and present them for approval, or we can all head to Salt Lake City (or further afield) to pick each selection one by one. The process is very personalized; what works for one Client doesn’t always work for others. Our aim is to create the home you want, not the one we want, and we have the talent and versatility for all styles from Traditional to Transitional to Contemporary. Of course, part of our service is to help you decide what your desired style might be.

Our family of 4 recently relocated from Boston to Park City, UT. Thanks to Murray's expertise, we are now in the home of our dreams. We interviewed 5 different relators in the Park City area, and 2 realtors in SLC. While one team of relators claimed to specialize in our neighborhood and another realtor emphasized her long list of awards, Murray showed he was going to work tirelessly to find our "forever" home. Searching from out-of-state during COVID, he sent us many helpful video walk-throughs, and helped us identify things that we couldn't see on Zillow such as aspect, road-noise, and access. Importantly, he wanted to sell us the right home, and would have the patience to make this happen. He offered to help look for rentals if the correct home wasn't on the market at the right time. His most valuable expertise manifested after we found our home. His experience as a home builder and a contract negotiator became essential to get us into this home.
“I have known Felicity for many years and have seen all the homes she and Murray have created. They are amazing!!! Felicity is passionate about her work and it shows. She has her own fantastic ideas but is also adaptable to the tastes of her clients. She is very knowledgeable and has many contacts so is able to acquire great pieces at good prices. My budget was less grand than that of the homes she usually does, but she was no less caring or creative with me. I love the colors she picked and by simply rearranging what I already owned she made my home look newer and much cleaner. I would recommend her to anyone!”
Murray and Felicity of the Gardner Group were instrumental in the building, planning, design, and all the details of our wonderful new modern dream house. I can’t imagine doing it without them. After spending many days with us fine tuning the details we would never even think of, they would work very hard to narrow down and research the options to choose from which was an immense help in getting our home built from a patch of land to an amazing villa. From choosing stone, wood, building materials, luxury designer couches, to choosing the style of a toilet paper holder, they were there every step of the way helping us build our amazing home. Even now, 3 years later, , they are immediately responsive and help with any questions, changes, or fixes that arise. The amazing support and follow up cannot be beat. The Gardner Group truly builds and designs a home as though they themselves are going to be living there and pay attention to every single detail. I could not think of a better group to work with if you are looking to build new or remodel to your luxury dream home.
We couldn't be more pleased with the Gardner Group. They guided us through the entire home building process from selection of the lot to final CO. During the process Murray and Felicity were constantly looking ahead and anticipating any issues with the project; in so doing, they took all the stress out of what could otherwise be a difficult and involved process and eliminated any surprises. We love our house and can't thank the Gardner Group enough for all of their assistance with it.
Long distance builds take courage, but when we walked into the Gardner Group’s stunning project on Mountain Top Lane (recently featured on Houzz), we suspected there was nothing to fear. What we have learned over the past year is that, working with the Gardner Group, even the Cowardly Lion could enjoy the process. The husband and wife team of Murray Gardner, who has coordinated all engineering, construction, landscaping, HVAC, electrical and automation aspects of our incredibly complex project, and Felicity Gardner, who has worked with us on the interior design choices, have been with us – by phone, by email, and even mini-video – every step of the way. From selecting the ideal lot to choosing the perfect stain for the base and case, they have sought our input when appropriate and never bothered us when we didn’t need to be involved in a decision. In less than a year, they have taken our project from an barren hillside to a nearly finished home. And in all that time, we have not experienced a single stressful moment. Just as the four ton steel beam in the second photo is absorbing all the structural stress of this build, Gardner Group has absorbed all the psychological stress. On any given day there may be 25 people from five different specialties at work on this project, but Murray has managed to keep them all on task and all working happily with one another. Felicity’s acute eye and knowledge of local design resources have meant that we’ve been able to plan an interior that should be as glorious as the views that surround our home…and do it all within our budget. No small feat. And did I mention that, on top of everything, they are two of the loveliest people we have ever met?
