Recognising the significance of buying a new home, Gagan takes a customer-centric approach to developing and seeks to drive up standards of customer service within the industry.

Gagan launched Manak Homes in 2019 after seeing space in the market for a small, family-owned developer that puts the needs of customers at the heart of the house building process. He has set a customer-centric culture within the company and puts a strong emphasis on building positive relationships with landowners, communities and customers.

Manak Homes’ developments are distinctive, bespoke, and practical. By investing resource into creating purpose-built designs that maximise space, Manak Homes are able to create homes that are bright, spacious, and that promote wellbeing.

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

His astuteness for delivering exceptional levels of customer service became embedded after spending three years working for a large London property developer. Working in the customer services team, he became sensitive to the needs of home buyers and the importance of delivering high-quality homes to create a faultless experience for customers.

Gagan is also a Director of Stanmore, providing Manak Homes with in-house expertise in dry lining, facades, electrical and mechanical services.

An advocate of enterprise, he is passionate about creating long-term job opportunities, providing employees with a happy workplace, and adding value to the local economy. He is an Adviser to The Entrepreneurs Network.
