Sammit Wagle takes inspiration from his engineering education to create interesting living spaces
Entrepreneurship is a many splendoured thing. The reason for getting into it is myriad. 27-year-old Sammit Wagle took a plunge into the world of real estate to provide interesting living spaces for his clients – “I always knew I wanted to pursue engineering and do this for a living, so I can provide my clients with unmatched life spaces that they desire,” he says.
Having secured a degree in mechanical engineering from PCCE, Sammit set out to make a mark for himself in the world of construction and real estate. “I was always passionate about construction, but I needed the experience and confidence to be able to create my own first dream project. After I completed my engineering studies, I did take up a couple of government projects for Water Resource Department as well as Public Works Department. This was for construction of canals and other such jobs. I learnt a lot while doing these projects. They gave me hands-on experience and provided the boost for me to take the bigger plunge into construction and creating my own buildings,” says Sammit about the early days in business.
Sammit’s father Madhav Wagle is a well-known pediatrician. But everyone else from his family has some business or the other linked to real estate; and it was easy for the youngster to gravitate to the field. Crediting his family for having supported his entrepreneurial vision, Sammit says, “I have always been inclined towards construction and real estate even as a child. I love the idea of putting together bits and pieces to create something gigantic and pleasing – an abode for people where they can feel at home. My parents, Dr Madhav Wagle and Pooja Wagle have been by my side at every new endeavour of my life. My cousin, Dattaprasad Wagle, a well known architect, has been my motivation. He was the one who encouraged me take such a huge step. He is my backbone and a strong support system in this field. So the spirit to get into the real estate business came from my family’s support. After that, there has been no looking back.”

Sammit’s first major project is Urban Oasis, a building located at Taleigao that is in completion stage. This modern building has various amenities such as a rooftop infinity swimming pool, as well as private cabanas to spend relaxed evenings, parking lot, a yoga terrace etc. As his pet project, Sammit has given it his all to create a peaceful abode for his clients. “With the best quality products and constant supervision, I have managed to create my dream project. With the construction being done, the final stages remain, before it is out for the clients,” exclaims Sammit with pride.
Quizzing him on the unique features of Urban Oasis, Sammit says, “This is my first project; and befittingly, it has been done with a lot of love and dedication. Also, there is always the pressure to do well in such a competitive market; hence quality is the hallmark of this project. With a modern touch yet a feel of home, Urban Oasis has been constructed with various things in mind like huge windows, a gym, a big terrace, stilt parking etc – so that the client has all the ease and comfort that he needs in a house without any external worries to look at.”
The young and restless entrepreneur already has two other projects in the pipeline, once Urban Oasis sees a handover. The first one is another residential building in Taleigao; and the other major project is of independent villas in the uptown locality of Dona Paula. Sammit’s entrepreneurial vision is to build a reputation for quality projects. He professes, “Wagle’s is my step in the real estate business. But even though it’s just the start, I truly believe that quality sustains. The reputation of a company is in the efficiency and quality that it delivers. I believe in providing comfort that is beyond the best, where my client can believe in my work without any second thought. It is about providing them with the best product and to keep doing the best work for complete client satisfaction. At the end of the day, we make or break because of our clients. We have to deliver happiness. This is the only motivation to keep continuing to do one’s best – and to deliver quality consistently”
