Abstract: The research is focused on understanding the level of service quality gap which exists between the customer's expectation level and satisfaction level for real estate services in Delhi NCR region.

The sample for the study comprises those respondents who bought a house or flat in the last two-year or planning to buy in the upcoming years. Data is collected using a questionnaire with 36 questions and each the dimension of service quality is measured on a seven-point Likert scale. The gap in service quality between expectation level and satisfaction level is calculated by subtracting the expectation score from satisfaction score. The paper also identifies suggestions and measures to minimise these gaps and ways to bring beneficial changes in the perception of customer service experience towards real estate sector of Delhi NCR's.
