Manek was born and raised in Mumbai, India where he finished high school at the Cathedral and John Connon School. While completing his undergraduate degree at Trinity College in Hartford, CT, he won four consecutive national championships as a member of the varsity squash team, which soon after opened doors for him to compete for India on the professional squash doubles tour (SDA Pro Tour).
Real estate has always been a passion of his. Manek constantly scours listings and is always looking at inventory in search of the best deals. After buying his first condo in Williamsburg and going through the stress, trials and tribulations of such a big investment, he wants to help people ease into their home ownership process and enjoy each step of the journey. He pays attention to a client's likes, dislikes, must haves and deal breakers while also navigating the many tedious steps in the home-buying process.
Manek considers himself to be a people person, easy to talk to and a great listener. His ability to put the clients' needs first, focus on what they really want and go out of his way to find them happiness is what makes him a great real estate agent.

Manek is a highly-adept, organized, and diligent real estate professional. Throughout the search for my first home, Manek took the time to educate me (at my request) on the markets we searched in as we visited several different types of properties across different price ranges. He also listened to my concerns and interests, and adapted to them as my criteria changed over time. Using his knowledge and expertise, Manek explained his recommendations to help me come to the best outcome on my own. Even further, he took the time to generate spreadsheets, checklists and other tools to help me understand my options when it was time to compare them. I appreciate that he was responsive, available to answer questions at all times, and that he was present at every showing. It was great to have someone consistently in my corner throughout the purchase process. Notably, he was not afraid to guide me away from properties that were overpriced and not worthwhile. I always felt that he was focused on finding me the right home that both fit my needs, and also aligned with my financial interest and well-being. Even after the home search, Manek continued to work diligently on my behalf throughout the mortgage process up until closing when the purchase was complete. I also valued his recommendations of other great professionals who were highly-skilled like him. I wholeheartedly recommend Manek!

Manek was great to work with throughout the whole process! He never made me feel uncomfortable if I knew right away I was not interested. He showed me apartments that I was interested in and it resulted in me buying a Brooklyn Apt!

Manek did an amazing job helping us find our dream apartment. He was always so organized, personable, and reliable. He responded to emails, calls, and texts very quickly and we could tell he really cared about us as clients. A very important trait to have as a real estate agent is patience and Manek was beyond patient with us during the process from start to finish. He always gave us great advice and his knowledge, of not only the areas we were looking for, but the process overall was very helpful. We can’t wait to have him help us on our next venture!

Manek gets things done. Throughout my search he provided many options, reaching out to any unit I was interested in and getting a video tour. I had changed my requirements multiple times during my search - Manek was on top of all of it! He is extremely responsive at all times. He knew about the management companies for many buildings in LIC, which was super helpful for making the decision between multiple similar units. I felt that he was always on my side. On multiple occasions he steered me away from units that were priced too high. I would highly recommend working with Manek for anyone looking for anything in the area.
