It is at the heart of Gera’s effort to infuse innovation and transparency in Real Estate and home building, with an unwavering focus on meeting the shifting lifestyle dynamics of their customers, while upholding the premium living experience. Accordingly, there are many ‘firsts’ that stand to Gera’s credit.

The company introduced a 5-Year Warranty on Real Estate, consisting of Preventive Maintenance & Repairs and provision of insurance on buildings way back in 2004 for the first time in India. RERA mandated the same only in 2017. Gera Developments Private Limited has now introduced India’s first and only 7-year warranty in Real Estate. Since 2014, it has designed and launched a pathbreaking concept, the award-winning Gera’s ChildCentric® Homes, which revolutionised the real estate sector for both, the developer and the home buyer. Other revolutionary and highly successful product lines have been IntelliplexesTM, SkyVillasTM, and The Imperium series. In its 50th Year, the company launched yet another first-of-its-kind industry initiative – Gera’s Home Equity Power, by providing financial flexibility to customers to withdraw funds from their prior payments to meet financial emergencies.

These products are matched by the services of the GeraWorld® Mobile App, which brings speed, convenience, and transparency to the buyer, enhancing the customer experience. Gera has also recently launched the Club Outdo initiative, a tech-driven loyalty and referral program that provides multiple benefits, offers, and community engagement opportunities to existing and new customers.

Gera is credited with publishing the only census-based study, “The Gera Pune Residential Realty Report” a bi-annual initiative, aimed at garnering insights on both, the supply and demand sides of the residential realty market in Pune. What started as a knowledge-gathering initiative in 2011, has now become something that realtors, IPCs, Research Houses, Brokerage Houses, and Banks & Financial Institutions look forward to. Besides a broad overview of available inventory, consumer affordability, and offtakes and prices, the report dives deeper to mine insights by price segment, square footage, construction stage, and size of unit.

The company emphasises delivering value-added experiences to customers, with projects designed around their evolving needs. Driven by trust, quality, a customer-first mindset, and innovation, the brand has won several awards on both, the product and service fronts.
