The most cherished assets of Mansions are the hundreds of wonderful families who own a Mansions apartment or villa or customised home--and who play a stellar role in recommending Mansions to their acquaintances. Given below is a compilation of select testimonials from Mansions homebuyers, over the decades.
Ex- Additional Secretary, Govt. of Kerala
I had an extremely pleasant experience dealing with Mansions. This is was the first time I was buying an apartment from Mansions and as a customer I felt that they met all my expectations. What I appreciate most about Mansions is their honest customer relationship. I felt at home interacting with their staff who were well experienced and professional in their dealings. As regards my apartment, I was satisfied with the finish quality when it was handed over. More importantly, they were quick to respond to my concerns and enquiries. For instance, I had an issue regarding a pipe malfunction, but the issue was resolved quickly. Overall, I am satisfied as a customer of Mansions.

I chose Mansions for constructing my independent home because Mansions is a firm which has been in the business for many years, and who will continue to be available in the future. Another reason is that I heard very good feedback from old customers of Mansions. In fact in VSSC, there were many colleagues who had constructed their homes through Mansions, and all had only good things to say about the company. The credentials of the team leading Mansions also gave me more reasons to trust them. It was a nice experience with Mansions during all the phases of house construction (before, during & after). My entire experience can be summarized in two principles: first, the hallmark of the team is their professionalism & honesty which makes things very easy for the customer; and second, they are quite passionate about what they do and are not money-minded.

CEO, Sohar Steel Group, Sultanate of Oman
I am an NRI working in Oman. Few years back I had approached the Co-founders of Mansions who were my batch mates at CET. I had just about 12 cents of land in a crowded location in the heart of Trivandrum City, and wanted to know if there was a good way of monetizing this asset in the most optimal manner. The land was main road facing but positioned at substantially lower level compared to road height. To my surprise, Mansions used their ingenuity, expertise and experience to suggest an architectural solution, for which I am grateful to them till this date. While I thought that I would be getting a design which may suggest a two-storey Customised Home, Mansions finally delivered a mini-building complex, which today houses a dental clinic on the cellar effectively utilizing the lower land level and cellar, a bank lease arrangement on the ground floor, my 4-bed apartment on the 1st floor, and two independent apartments on the 2nd floor. Since all the sub-units of my property are leased out, there's a steady stream of rental income, which is bound to escalate due to its strategic locational advantage. For me it is like a guaranteed retirement plan for my family once we return from gulf.
Another most important factor for which I am thankful to the Mansion team is that, the whole project was completed without any hassle or head ache to me. Right from approval stage to handing over the building, every job is done meticulously. In fact we seldom visited the site and even never bothered to make periodical inspections. Every progress was reported to me by their site in charge as if they are working for me. Totally trustworthiness and cost effective construction. I would strongly recommend Mansions to home aspirants situated in similar circumstances for innovative home solutions.

When we speak of Mansions we feel as if it's our own company; that is because of the intimate relationship that we have experienced with the Mansion's staff and management. From our engagement with Mansions, we realized that their work is clean and perfect: what we meant was their close attention to the smallest of details while executing the work. Our family has bought two apartments from Mansions and both were handed over to us as per our expectations. During the construction stage, we wanted to further customise our apartment, and they listened to our needs and demands and completed the apartment exactly the way we desired. We also realized that their dealings are clean and transparent. Our apartment has always been a good investment. Since we are very satisfied, we would certainly recommend Mansions to anyone who is planning to buy an apartment in Trivandrum.

I bought an apartment from Mansions mainly because I was impressed by the flat's location, the finish quality and their flexibility to satisfy our requirements and concerns. I had a very good experience dealing with their staff, and have no hesitation in saying that the Mansions team is always ready to cooperate with their customers. At times we have seen some delays in attending to minor after-sales jobs which we hope will be monitored more closely.

It's been ten years that we bought our apartment from Mansions. We have had a very good experience so far; there has never been much of an issue or problem. Whenever we had any problems we would inform them and we always got a quick response. We bought our apartment when we were approaching retirement. So we wished to move in quickly to have a retired life. Mansions were kind enough to prioritize our need and they finished our apartment quickly before finishing the entire apartment complex. In a way we were the first family to move in to our apartment complex. Their work quality is excellent, because it has been many years since we bought our apartment and it still is in good condition. We always had a good relationship with their staff and management. As a Mansions customer we are completely satisfied.

I have bought two apartments from Mansions from two different projects. What impressed me was the timely delivery of both projects. During the buying process of my first property from Mansions, I liked their commitment and their attitude towards the customer. They maintained a good relationship with me and were always responsive when I made any enquires on any apartment-related issues. So when I thought of buying another apartment as an investment, without any doubt I selected Mansions. To me they have proved they are trustworthy and efficient. A couple of suggestions for Mansions: they can facilitate the bank loan process, as I had faced some issues; likewise, it will be great if Mansions can provide a rental service for their customers who wish to rent their apartments to reliable tenants.

Ex-Group Head, Propulsion Group, VSSC
Ex-Engineer, Structures Entity, VSSC
For a long time we wanted to build a new house so we approached many builders and even got some quotations from some of them, but we weren't confident enough to proceed. We believed that, between a builder and a house owner, the most important thing is Trust and we couldn't find that with the other builders that we approached till then. We believe without basic trust the owner would never have peace of mind; and they will always be tensed and worried, when the construction is in progress. When I met Mansions and I shared my views and conditions for my house, we got a trustworthy response; and we were confident enough to entrust them the work of building our customised home. Subsequently, while the work was going on, I was satisfied with the quality of their construction and workmanship. We found that Mansions was always very flexible. We got to customise our house the way we wanted. We would also say that they were very time-bound as they completed the work in nine months. Another thing that was so important to us was that, Mansions were able to reuse all the wood-work from our old house in the new one, and thus saved a lot of expenses. The staff has always been very courteous, and we always had a good relationship with them. I will always recommend Mansions to anyone who is looking to build their dream home.

Mansions is the friendliest builder in Trivandrum city as far as I am concerned. Mansions have accepted and implemented all the changes that I wanted for my apartment. I have experience of staying in many flats. When I was thinking about taking a new apartment, I had approached different builders but none of them were as welcoming and friendly as Mansions. What made me select Mansions was their acceptance of my request to customise my apartment the way I wanted. A big plus was the location of my apartment. Though the apartment complex had proximity to many landmarks, it was a quiet residential area. I was also impressed by their flexible payment structure. Moreover the design, finish and quality was very good. I have not experienced any major breakdowns till now. But whenever any maintenance-related issue cropped up, I got a quick response. Their staff has always been very friendly to me and I have always had a good relationship with them. I am delighted with the Mansions experience.

I had an excellent experience with Mansions. From their building design to execution, to after-sales service I felt it was very nice. I was impressed by the location which I felt was convenient to travel to important places like railway station, airport, etc. I had heard positive reports about Mansions even before I had approached them. I still have a very good relationship with their staff and management. I always got appreciation from my guests about the locational advantage. I know of many people who are still ready to buy our apartment if we were to sell it one day. I have always enjoyed my stay here. Some glitches which arose after many years of stay which could be looked at are: closet water blockage; the wood work; tile pointing required in kitchen; and the elevation as there is a constant need of cleaning the front since inception because of the trouble caused by pigeons.

I am very much satisfied with Mansions and all thanks to the management team for helping me a lot with my apartment. I took an apartment from Mansions because of its proximity to nearby temples which we were searching for and the availability of facilities in and around that area. I was satisfied with the work and I did make a few changes to my apartment also. The finish quality is also good. I have requested for some post-sales service a few times and they have responded promptly. I have a very cordial relationship with everyone at Mansions.

I opted for Mansions as they are a prominent name in Trivandrum and known for stringent quality control, timely delivery and a friendly customer service. Mansions was the obvious choice when I made a decision to invest in a property. I'm very satisfied with my choice like the other happy home house owners. I have had a pleasant experience staying there, as the apartment is very well designed with optimum use of space. Every space is purpose-oriented and all our household items fit very well into their allotted corners. Mansions have adopted a contemporary design with an optimal blend of modern architecture and traditional elements. In my interactions with the Mansion's team, I found them thoroughly professional with their friendly staff having in-depth knowledge. This coupled with a quality product is a perfect package for a homebuyer. I can confidently say that I will be a loyal repeat customer of Mansions and would be recommending them to my friends and relatives.

I have been associated with Mansions quite closely as two of the properties I own were done by them. First, I bought an apartment from Mansions as an investment due to its good location. I was pretty confident about Mansions and I had faith in them that they would finish the work properly and would hand it over in time. Subsequently, Mansions also constructed a Customised Home for me. I must say they are very responsive to customer demands. Even when I wanted some renovations to be done they were prompt in their work execution and showed a professional approach. I am very satisfied as they were able to deliver my projects on the promised time schedule.

Mansions built my independent customised home way back in 2001 and I must say it has stood the test of time. The quality of construction is superb. There haven't been any cracks or leaks or any issues so far. Mansions have always listened and understood our requirements, and they have executed the work to the maximum extent possible without compromising on the engineering principles, as well as successfully customising it to meet client expectations. They were really transparent regarding the costs and gave us an idea of the total investment, and the expenses that would arise during different stages of construction. Whenever I had any minor issues, Mansions would send people to take care of it immediately. As for the delivery time, it was completed as per the committed schedule.

I bought my first apartment from Mansions in 2011 but I knew about Mansions much before, because the independent house that I was living in earlier was designed and built by them way back 2001. I have had a very pleasant experience with them from then and had a good relationship with the staff. When I thought of moving into an apartment, I did not have much trouble selecting a trustworthy builder because I knew Mansions quite well. Later I recommended Mansions to my sister, who also bought an apartment in the same complex as mine. We both were satisfied with the work and the timely delivery of our apartments. Presently my sister thought of buying another apartment as an investment. This time also we have booked an apartment from Mansions. One of the reasons we are coming back to Mansions again for the fourth house is that they always offer their projects at reasonable prices. Moreover their work execution is good. I always had a good and warm relationship with their staff as well. In view of buying multiple properties from Mansions, I would like to make some comments: they should work on a better elevation; there is an issue of laying the tiles at the expansion joint, but when the tiles crack at that portion, there is water leakage too; and any service in the common area should be approached through the Association.

Kudos to Mansions on completing 30 years of providing Customised Homes, Villas and Apartments. Somany Ceramics' guiding philosophy is achieving customer delight through business innovation and cost effectiveness; and during our association with Mansions it's nice to learn that they also cherish similar values, which is the reason that they are a respected player in the real estate sector.

Over the years, Mansions has been approached by genuine landowners looking for an authentic relationship to enter into Joint Venture (JV) partnerships for constructing Mansions Apartments. These have been win-win partnerships, as is evident from the JV Commendations.

My transactions with Mansions have been absolutely transparent and I am happy with the way they have been functioning over the years. Sometime back, I had an occasion to visit one of my friend’s apartments which was done by Mansions; and I was very impressed with it. They had optimally used all available spaces to benefit the homebuyer – and at the same time ensured that it looked good from the architectural point of view. As regards the construction quality, I must say it was of the highest order. I realised that the two co-founders were CET engineers and that Mansions had an experienced & customer-friendly team of engineers & home building professionals. Hence in this backdrop, I was only too pleased to enter into a JV partnership for Mansions Palm Hills Apartments on my land. I got a fair deal for my land and I own two apartments in this complex, which have been rented out. I wish Mansions all success in their future endeavors.

We have always been in good terms with Mansions. We approached Mansions with a joint venture proposal and we were satisfied with all the deals and transactions we had. Our dealings with Mansions were excellent, as whatever was promised was delivered, so we never had any trouble with any transactions or agreements. Initially there were some government-related procedural issues but when Mansions started the project, they rectified the schedule and they were able to deliver at the proper time. We got a great deal for our land at that time and we were very much satisfied. We got very good returns for our land by way of apartments and land prices. We can't recall anything negative about our experience with Mansions.

My name is Latha Mohanchandran and I'm staying in Pune. Nearly 15 years ago, I happened to meet one of the two co-founders of Mansions, as they had bought a small plot from my sister for building a house. That time I was also thinking of doing something with my share of the ancestral property in Trivandrum as I had settled down in Pune. So when he casually suggested about joint development and building a set of flats, I was interested. That's how Mansions Sharada Madhavam (named after my parents) came into being. Honestly though we checked about the credentials of Mansions and their project capabilities, it was after meeting the two co-founders that we got a gut feel that they will deliver – which ultimately cemented our resolve in dealing with them and that they will deliver on their promises. The driving force was the mutual trust and the warm relationship that they exuded -- in addition to their professionalism, project capabilities, transparency and other parameters which we considered essential. I don't think there would have been a better joint partner for this project.

The Sree Padmam Residency project was one of the first residential apartment blocks in Trivandrum’s Fort area executed by any private builder. Prior to this, only the Housing Board had built apartments in the Fort area. The trust Mansions had reposed with customers and the contacts established with the local community, facilitated the quick purchase of apartments built by Mansions. Most of the clients were first time apartment owners. The apartment complex was considered a welcome addition to the landscape which was dominated by Agraharam row-type houses in the Fort area. The homebuyers appreciated the build quality and amenities provided in the complex. I did not opt for an apartment in the complex, but received a fair deal for my land. My land transaction dealings with Mansions was transparent. Actually my relationship with Mansions had started some time earlier, when Mansions had done civil work for our factory building (40,000 sq ft) at Kochuveli in Trivandrum. The contract was also completed professionally and meticulously. If asked to rate my JV experience with Mansions, I would give them 9/10.
Even before the foundation stone of a building is laid, a project first takes shape in an architect's mind. Over the decades, many professional architect firms have witnessed the growth of Mansions in the real estate sector. Some of these architects share their views.

It's refreshing to see that, Mansions , besides focussing on construction of residential apartments, has blazed a trail in the design and building of independent Customised Homes catering to the needs of landowners who wish to make a home of their choice. The fact that Mansions has built over 300 such customised homes is a testimony to the passion of the Co-founders, who are engineers backed by an able team of brilliant professionals. Hearty congratulations on Mansions completing 30 years.
