About Gera Developments Private Limited:
Gera, a reputed brand for over 50 years, is one of the pioneers of the real estate
business in Pune. Recognised as the creators of premium residential and
commercial projects in Pune and Goa, the brand has established a global presence
through developments in California, USA. Gera prides itself on providing long-term
satisfaction to customers, by having a distinct customer-first approach. The
philosophy of Gera is “Let’s Outdo,” which rests on the trinity of Innovation,
Transparency, and Enhanced Customer Experience. 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 Intelliplexes TM , SkyVillas TM , 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. 

GDPL also continues to be certified as ‘India's Great Mid-Size Workplaces’ by the
Great Places to Work ® (GPTW) Institute for the sixth year in a row.
Gera envisions bringing out the best of Real Estate in India. As it redefines new
standards of service orientation, product innovation, real estate marketing, and brand
building, it is consistently generating fresh value for its stakeholders, while raising the
bar for the industry.
