Gagan Manak

Director

Gagan Manak is Director of Manak Homes, a family-run house builder that creates design-led, characterful residential communities fit for the needs of today’s customer.

He launched Manak Homes in 2019 after discovering space in the market for a small, family-owned developer that puts the needs of customers at the heart of the house building process, from land acquisition through to sales.

Recognising the significance of buying a new home, Gagan takes a customer-centric approach to house building and seeks to drive up standards of customer service within the industry. He believes homeowners deserve and expect homes that are nothing short of perfect, and it is this principle that sits at the core of the business. He has set this customer-focused culture through all aspects of the company and puts a strong emphasis on building positive relationships with landowners, local communities, and customers.

Gagan is a proponent and practitioner in responsible developing. Manak Homes acquires land where it believes its developments can have a positive and long-lasting impact on the local community and economy.

He is also a Director of Stanmore, one of the well-known specialist contractors in the UK, providing Manak Homes with an in-house expertise in dry lining, facades, electrical and mechanical services.

His astuteness for delivering exceptional levels of customer service in the property industry became embedded after spending three years working for a large London property developer. It was during his time in the customer services team that he became sensitive to the needs of home buyers and the importance of delivering high-quality homes to create a faultless, perfect experience for customers, particularly first-time buyers and young families.

He holds a degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Warwick and a Masters in International Real Estate & Planning from UCL.
