My wife Tania and I were both born in the UK. We met at university while studying Law and Marketing. We are proud parents of two sons, who now attend the University of Washington, here in Seattle.
In 2015 we moved from the UK and purchased a home in Sammamish soon after. Having been through the relocation process ourselves, we are able to share in-depth knowledge and genuine understanding of the process and stress it entails with many of our clients who find themselves relocating here. Rest assured that no question is a ‘silly’ question.
I am ex-corporate, having spent the past 25 years in Marketing and Business roles. I left my previous Microsoft role as I decided that I wanted a change in career, to become a Realtor®, and pursue my interest in Real Estate. My wife Tania has subsequently joined me as a Licensed Real Estate Agent, having carried out many of the tasks in the background previously. Tania has a background in Operations and Process Management and is very detail orientated.
Whether you are a first-time buyer, seasoned investor, or relocating to Seattle, we are confident that as a team, our family will offer a greater service to yours.
After living in Redmond Washington for 20 years, the time had come to downsize (becoming empty nesters and retiring) and we hired Manesh and Tania Lakhani to help us sell our house. Saying they were amazing is a HUGE understatement. They were ALWAYS available, no matter what time, what day of the week (including weekends) they were both always there to answer our questions. Every question was explained with amazing clarity and professionalism. They appraised our house providing us with numerous market comparisons and advised us on how to get top dollar (what to fix, where to paint, where to invest our time etc.). They recommended a fantastic insp...— Lisa & Tony Seeley
Manesh and Tania have been extremely helpful and great throughout our home buying process. As first-time home buyers who were very new to the world of real estate, it was super helpful to have them by our side throughout the process. He was extremely patient during the home viewings, answered all our questions, gave us his unbiased feedback about the homes, and didn’t rush us until we found the home that we love. Manesh and Tania were very efficient with their home recommendations which were curated based on our wants and needs. From offer to closing, Manesh is very knowledgeable. In a highly sought after neighborhood, Manesh helped us close on a ve...— Sanjana Urs
Over the past few years we’ve moved multiple times across the country and have worked with excellent to mediocre real estate agents from both the buyer’s and seller’s perspectives. We are happy to say that Manesh and Tania Lakhani are among the very best agents we’ve ever worked with. We literally couldn’t have secured our new dream home without them! We started our home search in the Eastside market back in 2020 so we have experienced the market at its craziest heights to its current state in 2023. While the market has settled from its highs, good properties in top locations still are hard to come by and often go very fast. We had lost several home...— Kinjal Shah
Manesh and Tania have been awesome in our home buying process. They have been extremely professional, helpful, and supportive throughout the entire process. It took us around 18 months to find the right home (we were on and off in the home market), but Manesh and Tania were extremely patient and empathetic to our changing needs and requirements. They were extremely proactive and responsive to any and all questions/concerns we had during this process. Manesh is extremely knowledgeable in the home closing and other processes that need to get done in order to successfully close the transaction. They personally built connections with other agents to b...— Adesh Khandelwal
Manesh was referred to us by a friend during our investment property search process. Right from the day 1, Manesh was very attentive to our requirements and questions, and impressed us with his extensive real estate knowledge. Manesh & Tania immediately set us up with receiving the right leads and were very organized in filtering, shortlisting and viewing the selected options. They did all the research and due diligence upfront to eliminate options that didnt meet our needs, optimizing our time. Manesh brought extremely handy insights to the showings which made the decision making process easier for us. He went above and beyond the home buying proce...— Parminder Randhawa
Manesh and Tania helped me with the sale of my home at the beginning of 2023 and it was A LOT of work! There were plenty of hiccups along the way (break-ins, buyer financing fail, relisting, etc.) and they handled it with aplomb. I am so grateful for all of their hard work and I have no doubt that it would've been a much more stressful situation if I had worked with a different team. Thank you both so much!— Heather Morris
We recently bought our first home and it wouldn't have been possible without Manesh. He really knows the Greater Seattle area in-and-out and helped us along every step of the process. He's quite patient and is equally excited about getting first-time home buyers their dream house. He's very prompt in responding and doesn't hesitate to work around your schedule. I would highly recommend Manesh for anyone who's looking to buy a house in Seattle area.— Somesh Gupta
Manesh was prompt and helped with home search and closure that eased the experience of first time buyer. We appreciate and would recommend working with Manesh for being on your side when you embark on your home buying journey.— Suniljeet Singh
We recently had the pleasure of working with Manesh as our real estate agent, and we must say that our experience was exceptional. From the very beginning, Manesh stood out with his excellent communication skills, honesty, and extensive knowledge of the local market. His dedication and expertise made the process of buying our first house a smooth and enjoyable journey. One of the aspects that truly impressed us about Manesh was his exceptional communication skills. He was always prompt in responding to our inquiries, whether it was through phone calls, emails, or text messages. He kept us well-informed throughout the entire process, providing regula...— Anupama Yeole
Team Lakhani are solid professionals, organized, efficient, thoughtful, and responsive. They helped us secure a favorable deal on a house we purchased through their contacts and experience. We received exceptional value and will be contracting them to sell our old house as well. Highly recommended.— Steve Pelton
Manish & Tania were very proactive, sensitive and caring from day 1 they took over our house to sell. Guided us through out the process and made sure every detail is taken care of. Thanks Manish & Tania— Jaivardhan Agarwal
Manesh and Tania were more than helpful in finding us a home in Washington. They were honest, upfront, and able to find us a great house that fit all of our needs. We were looking to move from California to Washington and even while we were still living in California, they were extremely communicative and easy to reach to answer any of our questions at all times. Manesh and Tania went above and beyond and made the whole process a breeze! We were so happy to have them as our realtors and we highly recommend them if you are looking to buy a house in Washington!— Leonardo & Angelica Joaquin
Manesh and Tania have the qualities that make them extremely successful and effective real estate agents. We can’t say enough about their professionalism and knowledge within the industry. They have high integrity and are very conscientious and tenacious, always keeping the client's best interests in mind. They have treated us with so much professionalism and have represented us well on the purchase side of the transaction. Manesh has very keen listening skills which many realtors lack today. He took the time to understand our needs, first before showing any properties. He is very data driven and, in our case, he thoroughly researched and armed us ...— Mahesh Rao
As a repeat customer having completed 3 transactions with Manesh, I can attest to his knowledge, professionalism, and outstanding ethical practices. He and his team expertly guided us through some very challenging transactions and worked tirelessly to ensure good outcomes. Although they were managing several intense transactions at the same time they treated us as if we were their only customers. He and his team were available any time we had a question, concern, or just needed to touch base. Even when negotiations got dicey Manesh laid out our options and helped us walk through the pros and cons. His upstanding reputation in the community is well e...— Pamela Wilensky
Just the stars can't do justice to Manesh. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional, friendly, approachable and helpful. We started our house search with another agent and had a very bad experience. Therefore, we researched on some Facebook groups about the best real estate agents in the greater Seattle area, that is when we found Manesh and Tania. Manesh guided us on every small step in this long and never-ending process. He has great knowledge and excellent contacts in the real estate world, which helped us overcome many obstacles in this journey. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Manesh and we had a great experience. We didn't just get ...— Nikhil Patne
Manesh and Tania helped us sell our old home and buy our new home. Our experience with them in both transactions was outstanding. I cannot speak highly enough of their work and dedication. They know their stuff, they are patient on big decisions and they provide well-thought out advice throughout the process.— Marcus Skeem
Manesh is an amazing realtor!!! As a first time buyer and trying to buy home solo, it was really tough in this crazy market. But Manesh was swift, understands market, great knowledge how to place a strong offer to keep us in the running. Apart from all that, he is extremely helpful and always gave me suggestions like a friend. I am so so happy working with him and Tania and I definitely know our journey doesnt just end here :) Many more to come :D Thanks again both of you— Adibhatla Sravanthi
We decided to sell our house with Manesh and Tania based on a recommendation. We sold the house while going back and forth from another state. Manesh and Tania made the process so easy. They were so helpful with all our questions and were available 24/7. They go above and beyond. I would highly recommend them!— Kathryn Skinner
Manesh and Tania have been wonderful at meeting our needs when searching for our home. They are both extremely punctual and diligent in making appointments, follow-ups, providing recommendations/comps etc. throughout the home searching process. They were very efficient and were able to quickly schedule tours without any delays. Manesh was very insightful during the offer process and helped highlight and avoid potential hiccups to allow for a smooth transaction. They continued helping us with questions and input even after closing. We will definitely recommend Manesh and Tania to all my friends who are looking for homes.— Anand R
Thanks Manesh for helping us find our dream home. It was lovely working with you. We were new to all this but You really helped us in every step by explaining every minute detail. Thanks— Ritu Anand
Manesh and Tania are very professional realtors. They helped us greatly, including educating about pros and cons of each house in detail, suggesting good locations and were very accommodative even with our impromptu requests to visit some house without prior appointment. I'd highly recommend Manesh and Tania.— Manish Awasthi
I came across Manesh through FB groups and noticed that consistently he was offering good solid advice to home buyers. I also noticed that he was doing a lot of volume (buyer's agent or as seller's agent) per month and was very active on the East side of Seattle. My wife and I decided to engage him and we were really happy that he was very helpful, professional and put us at ease since we were first time home buyers in a seller's market like Seattle. Manesh was very prompt with arranging appointments to see houses. He also has a great sense of humor and would share a lot of real estate anecdotes and each of them has an important lesson to be learnt....— Ajit Ravindran
Manesh was super helpful in finding my new home. He knew the right areas to look at to fit my budget. While going through the process he took the time to explain to me what was going on making for a good learning experience as a first time home buyer. Any questions I had were answered immediately with a great amount of knowledge. He was available to call or text at any time. I am very happy with my experience purchasing a house with Manesh and I love my new home!— James Seeley
Manesh helped us in buying our first home. He was just a phone call / WhatsApp message away. Starting from our first intro call he clearly explained the process, understood our requirements, suggested homes, next steps to take and followed up on our progress. He was with us at every open house we visited. He has a great strategy and he made our first bid selected. Once we were in contract, he followed up with the Title Company, Lender and the Seller Agent etc. He made the closing possible earlier than expected. He is the best realtor.— Sasidhar Vangha
Manesh is a fantastic realtor. He was always there to help us, even if it was during odd hours. He made it very easy for us to find our new house. This entire home-buying process went smoothly and without a hitch because of his expertise and knowledge of the real estate market. I'm delighted we were able to collaborate with him. Manesh is someone I would strongly suggest to anyone looking to purchase their ideal home.— Sailesh Nair
Loved working with Manesh and Tania. Very patient and judgement free. They were transparent about the process and we always felt like they were on our team.— Kanika Sharma
Working with Manesh and Tania was phenomenal!They were very efficient, quick in responding to the questions and concerns and great networking skills! Manesh is competitive in evaluating the homes matching our preferences. He understands your goals and limitations. While touring the houses, he guided us with valuable and relevant inputs about the house, market and the best price to bid on it. This made us understand a lot about home buying process and financials.They were able to get the good deal in a limited time frame. We definitely recommend them and also we'll never miss a chance to work with them.— Sushma Sai
We are new to Seattle area and was clueless on location in our house search and had a lot of filters to consider (Vastu, facing, budget etc). Manesh was instrumental, extremely patient and knowledgeable to advise what’s best for our family. Manesh traveled with us to every nook and corner of the city in our house-hunt. Best part is his family as a team who well understand our needs and could quickly pull in all required info as you hop from home to home. He and team are available, reliable, quick, efficient and amicable - all that you need in a realtor.— Sandeep Kumar
We were first time home buyers in this crazy market and I can confidently say that the only reason we secured our dream house was because we were working with Manesh. I'm very confident in this fact because we had another agent that we were working with who was referred to us by a friend that we felt wasn't a good fit. Well, it was a night and day difference when we started working with Manesh. Our prior agent was very experienced (about 20-30 years of experience) but Manesh is really on a different level and we knew we made the right decision from the first home we toured with him. So what was it like working with this consummate professional? 1...— Michael & Virginia
I was blessed to find Manesh who helped me locate and purchase my new home here in the Seattle area. He walked with me every step of the way and made the whole process of purchasing a new build home not only effective, but also made suggestions that improved the quality of my new home. Work with this company - they really care and will offer you a quality, personal experience.— Mary Greenwood
We had a great experience with Manesh. He helped us to find a great house in Lynnwood. This was my first time buying a home, and Manesh’s expertise and advice was invaluable. He was very patient and helpful, and maintained great communication throughout the entire process.— Vedram V.
We worked with Manesh and Tania selling our home and I could not recommend them more! Finding our dream house as we casually scrolled online was unexpected so we were unprepared to sell our home. Tania and Manesh came in, set a plan and we’re there with us literally every step of the way, selling our home only 5 days after it was listed. They always made time for us, kept us informed, and made sure things were handled in a timely manner. Not only are you getting amazing realtors but the contacts that they have made and can extend are priceless, they provided great resources for handymen and staging that exceeded our expectations. The most impressive...— Jess M.
After unexpectedly finding and falling in love with our new home, before we'd even wholly committed to the idea of moving ourselves, it was pretty overwhelming looking head-on at the amount of work we had ahead of us to sell our house. Manesh & Tania had a plan set and an answer ready for every question or problem we had. There was never a moment throughout the entire process that left us feeling like we were anything other than their highest priority. Two of the most honest and kind people we've ever had the pleasure to meet and work with.— Nick M.
Manesh and Tania helped us secure a perfect house in Lynnwood, WA. Starting from Day 1, they were meticulous in understanding our requirements and always provided hand-picked listings customized to our needs. They would do thorough research of the market and provide their unbiased opinion about the listings, and would patiently answer all our questions even if they were silly. Best of all, we never felt being rushed into decision making. As the market is upbeat during Covid, we were tempted to over bid occasionally, but their honest feedback helped restraining us to go beyond the right price. My wife and I would highly recommend their services to an...— Vinayak M.
We worked closely with Manesh and Tania for our home purchase in a new development in Issaquah. We couldn’t have been more pleased from start to finish! They were experienced, honest, professional, responsive and extremely resourceful in all facets of our needs. They consistently went the extra step for us which really differentiates their service model. We would highly recommend for your real estate needs!!— Ben F.
Manesh helped us end to end through our journey of buying a home in Seattle area while we were located in East coast , He is very knowledgeable, helped us to make decisions without pushing his opinion but by making us clear about the pros and cons of each offer, After we won the bid he guided us throughout the process and kept us updated, he was always available for any queries and helped us to close the deal smoothly on time , he has also helped us in couple of matters after closing the deal just like a Friend would do, he has won our trust !! We would definitely recommend him to all our friends, if you want a hassle free home buying experience ple...— Nabarun C.
We recently relocated to the Seattle area and were so fortunate to work with Manesh and Tania. They understand the market very well and took the time to understand our needs and what we were looking for. They take a personal approach and are 100% in your court. They are always available and are everything you would hope to have when working with a real estate agent.— Steve L.
Wow. It's hard to put into words just how much help Manesh was in finding a new home, but here goes! When my wife and I started looking for a new home we didn't have an idea how difficult it was going to be. Home prices had sharply risen as a result of the high demand and record low interest rates. What we knew was that if we didn't enter the market soon, we risked being priced out in the future. We promptly reached out to Manesh to assist us in finding a home and he quickly responded by providing us with the latest market updates and additional information that helped mange our expectations about buying a home in the current market. Basically, he ...— Chido C.
I worked with Manesh and Tania Lakhani in June of 2021 and without a doubt would recommend working with them. As a first-time home buyer, Manesh and Tania were incredibly informative, responsive, and patient with me throughout the process. Both went above and beyond to make sure every detail was in order from start to finish.— Maddie J.
Manesh helped us to sell our home in Bellevue. He is highly experienced with negotiations and did a fantastic job from start to finish. We live abroad and there is a significant time difference between us. Nonetheless, Manesh was extremely responsive 24/7. He even helped us to coordinate all the landscaping, renovations, and repairs, as well as professionally stage the space. I would highly recommend Manesh to anyone looking to make a real estate transaction.— Charles T.
Manesh was more than helpful in finding us our dream house. He was extremely honest, upfront, and was able to find us a house that fit right in our price. He was extremely communicative and easy to reach to answer any of our questions. He went above and beyond to help us with the entire process. Would totally work with him again!— Santosh T.
Manesh helped us not only buying an awesome house but also with selling our last place. He is super awesome - a master negotiator, gives attention to details and make sure things are easy for clients. He will go that extra mile for you which helped us close the fast in this crazy market. He is our good friend now and someone whom I recommend without a doubt to my network.— Saket G.
We had wonderful experience working with Tania and Manesh. They are very attentive and followed up on every single detail and kept us updated throughout the process. They would give us their expert opinion and guided through the entire process of negotiating and helping us get our dream home. We highly recommend them and they are the best.— Rajani K.
Very happy to have worked with Tania this summer. She is a hard-worker, and pays attention to detail while listing your home for sale. They (Tania and her husband Manesh) treat the house like its theirs while getting it ready to be sold. I would not hesitate to buy a home listed by them any day. No stone goes unturned and buyers can be rest assured that they are in very good hands. Incidentally, we used them as a buyers agent as well this summer and highly recommend their services.— Ravi K.
When my husband and I were searching for a home from California, we knew we needed a real estate agent who was honest, very knowledgeable of the local housing market surrounding Seattle, and with a great work ethic. Manesh and Tania were everything we were looking for and more!! Buying a home from out-of-state was stressful, to say the least, but Manesh made the whole process so much easier from start to finish. This husband-and-wife-duo were absolutely amazing to work with and I cannot recommend them enough!! We are so happy to have found them and when we’re ready to buy our next home, we’ll know exactly who to turn to for help!— Pavitra P.
I was introduced to Manesh through a friend. Manesh hopped on the phone at a moments notice. That level of responsiveness continued through all phases of the real estate viewing and purchase process. I always felt Manesh was a partner in the process. Moreover, my partner and I cherished the long hours Manesh spent talking through options and strategizing - he took our finances and the weight of the decision as seriously as if he it was his own future and family involved. He steered us away from issues and helped us arrive at a great deal.— Sean G.
Trust was the most important aspect of this whole process for us. From the get-go Manesh made us feel heard. He struck the perfect balance between informative and allowing us space to form our own opinions. He was never pushy but knew when to push us on putting in offers on homes. He made himself available to us despite our being located on the East Coast and him on the West coast. He was genuinely a delight to work with, and on the off-chance he was unavailable, his wife Tania stepped in and did an amazing job handing over information and serving in his stead. What a fantastic team. They get the highest praise from us.— Lars O.
Tania is wonderful to work with. She was very responsive, prompt and answered all our first time home buyer questions. Tania and Manesh genuinely cared about helping us find our first house. They were always on top of everything, reaching to us with any updates during the search phase and after placing offer. We had a great experience working with them.— John F.X.
Manesh is a great realtor who understands client requirements and goes into detail by looking at various dimensions of budget, location and size. He then presents with the properties that match the requirement. One key thing is that he never pushes the client to overbid and always does the ground work of market analysis prior to reviewing the property. I strongly recommend him to any of the first time home buyers or folks looking to upgrade.— Goutham R.
Tremendous partner. Always available. Honest feedback, easy to trust in the process. I was able to do it all remote due to his commitment to video and great communication.— Pedro V.
