Gagan Manak


After completing his Master’s Degree in International Real Estate & Planning from University College London (UCL), Gagan began his career at Barratt Homes, one of the country’s leading national housebuilders. His first role was in the Customer Services team and Gagan learned first-hand the importance of creating a perfect experience for home buyers. One of the key lessons that Gagan gained during this period was that your home can be where your most precious memories are made and customers deserve a home that exceeds their expectations.

After this role, Gagan progressed into the Land & Development team where he worked alongside colleagues on sourcing and securing planning permission for sites across London. It was during this time that Gagan understood the significance of location and design for new developments, the buildings we develop can be in place for decades and if designed well can have a lasting and positive impact on its surrounding areas and help to reinvigorate local communities.

After three years with Barratt Homes, Gagan left to setup Manak Homes seeing a gap for a small to medium sized developer that specialises in beautiful and high quality homes.

Manak Homes strives to develop homes of the highest quality with a strict attention to detail, placing the customer at the heart of its business from land acquisition through to design and build.

Gagan enjoys spending time with family and friends as well as reading, experiencing new cultures and following his football team Liverpool!
