Hi and welcome to Manor Lakes. I’m Annetha! I’m looking forward to taking you on a journey through Manor Lakes. I have been at Manor Lakes for 3 years and in that time, I’ve had the privilege of helping first home buyers, investors and even current residents upsize to their forever home. Buying land and building a home can feel a little overwhelming, but I want you to know that I'll answer all your questions and we'll do it together. So, thank you for considering Manor Lakes and becoming part of our community.

Since moving into her brand new Townhome in the Lollipop Hill neighbourhood of Manor Lakes, Ramanpreet Kaur has been revelling in that super sweet feeling of owning your own home.
“When you are renting, you are filling someone else’s pocket,” she explains. “When you own your home, your money goes on your mortgage and you're getting your own space. This is real value for hard-earned money to me!”

While Somesh and Vandana Dewett still had to contend with the logistical aspects of moving from Sydney to Melbourne in 2017, they already knew where to look for their new home.

We were thrilled when Raman Kaur agreed to be part of our first "meet your neighbour" video. Raman recently purchased and moved into a Manor Lakes' townhome and she was delighted to talk about her experience and how she's finding townhome living at Manor Lakes.
Here's just a little bit about Raman and her journey...
