One of the joys of the property leasing business, is to see the satisfaction from our clients. A few years ago, we had this idea of inviting our tenants, landlords, or clients for a simple Q and A interview as part of marketing our services to landlords and potential lessees. To show our first video ever recorded for this initiative, click on below.



The video took less than 1 minute. It is unfiltered and disorganized. But sometimes, going off the script shows the authenticity of the joy that we have given to our client. We wish to continue our purpose of serving our clients in the years to come.

MANAGERS REPORT: Condominium Units in San Antonio Village Makati City increase property rental rates.




For the past few months, it has been a challenge to finds units for lease in San Antonio Village area of Makati City. The continuous development and additional business generated through online gaming and IT development has allowed us to get a healthy share of the tenants looking for a place near their offices. We have added some more clients, but the problem is we cannot provide them with the units. This has allowed our landlords to increase their rental rates.


However, it is not the only reason for the change. Some owners we’re aware of the train regulations while some developments require new fees for the completion  of the titling of the project.

These cost are just carried over to maintain their investment returns. All of these factors just add up to bustling  development in Makati City.


In the next post, we will update our followers with units that will be ready on August and up to the 4th quarter of the year.

We also share some of the interviews from our satisfied tenants and landlords on the level of service that we try to give to our clients.


Have a nice day!

Last November 22, 2015, was a good one for our international promotions of Amaia Land Corp. The developer is the economic arms of Ayala Land.  The success of the international roadshow has given us an opportunity to request for an event to commemorate the presence of the bloggers in terms of marketing online.

The event has not gone very well. It was disorganized and the developer was not ready to host the 40 invited guests. But to send the message and dedicate it to the hardworking digital marketers on this event is priceless.

6/98: Our lead broker shares his experience with Security Bank on international loans.



Our 98 testimonies is not complete if we don’t mention the companies whom we align our culture on two points.
1.       Quality service
2.       Making things happen.
We do not only gather our testimonies from landlords, tenants, and investors. We also make sure that we give praise to the institutions that help our clients on their loan approvals.
Here below is a video of our broker, Paolo Flores, on his testimony with Security Bank as our loan partner.
Their tagline remains the truth in serving our international clients. However, in a  competitive industry, it is a challenge to remain focused on customer satisfaction.
Also in the video, I mentioned that there is another bank that holds the same ground in delighting their customers. Want to know what is that other bank? Talk to us now for your free home loan advice.

5/98: Makati condominium owner’s story; from no tenant in 3 years and now with a tenant in 3 days.



One of our landlords based in the Middle East, highlights his story from getting a Belton Place condominium unit in the Philippines from Saudi Arabia. As an OFW, he was convinced to invest a property in Makati. Unfortunately, it was a failure from the start. He was supposed to get a 2 bedroom unit, but when the project was done, he realized that he got 2 different units. A studio, and a 1 bedroom layout. He and her partner carried on and just continued with their monthly obligations. The unit was then turned over, and he was optimistic of having it rented, first hand.  However, after 3 years, their unit still remains empty, instead of making it an income producing asset. Check out his experience below on how he managed to go from no tenant in 3 years to having a tenant in 3 days.
We still keep in touch with our landlord. Cheers to more property rentals in the future.

4/98: Our testimony with an HR of our bulk condominium units in San Antonio Village, Makati City.


Mae our lease coordinator, gets a chance to interview the HR of one of our corporate clients in Makati, Philippines. This company is just a stone’s throw away from their residential units.





Our mantra focuses on our dedication to quality service. The  Property Management in the building is open during 8 am to 6 pm. Most of their needs after these hours are compromised. Problems such as leaks, minor repairs, and late deliveries through their units are being coordinated by our staff. This has earned us some
more referrals through their fellow employees. Sometimes, it get’s challenging to find units with the corporations that we handle. However, we never stop our marketing efforts to sustain their housing requirements.

3/98: Our 3rd interview, with a representative of the unit owner based in USA


Mae, our lease coordinator, follows up with Ms. Minda regarding some of her requests prior the move in of their tenant. Ms. Minda is the assigned representative of the unit owner. Since they have some more free time, Mae inquired on our usual routine questions on their satisfaction with our services.
Let’s check what Ms. Minda has to say about our leasing services.
Most of our clients, are balikbayans and professionals based abroad. Sometimes, they don’t know what to do with their units, making it idle and non-productive. Our staff is hands on with our rentals even without your presence. To check out our leasing program, don’t hesitate to post a message below.

Why are Real Estate Developers in the Philippines not aware of their poor customer service with their clients?

Most balikbayans and OFW’s who invested in a property in the Philippines, always had an issue with the developers. This is common especially for international clients. Some are already fed up with the back and forth thread of conversations thru emails between the developer and the client and most of the time, they decide to just cancel their investment.


I have no idea on the exact reason, but based from the issues that we handled before, here are some of our theories.

  1. Lack of training in handling real estate documentation concerns.


One of the major flops here is the lack of knowledge of the developers representative. Most of their employees are not fully equipped to handle the step by step procedure. Sometimes you cannot blame the frontliner officers since they have certain protocols to follow. One of the example, is the long wait for a required signature of different department heads before starting the particular resolution. Afterwards it will be passed on the different departments. The agent or the client can follow up, but in the process, no one in their office would take responsibility. In the end, the clients are sometimes compromised with penalties while account status are on hold while resolving the concern.

2. Miscommunication between departments.


This usually happens when we are going deeper in communications with the developer. For some reason, I do not understand, why these officers cannot just meet in person, when all of them are in the same building. Sometimes they even requested us to be present just to resolve their self inflected errors.

However, if it happens more than just once, it just takes up a lot of time.


3. High turnover in the Customer Service Departments.


The high turnover of the employees in the customer service and documentations department does not contribute to the resolution of the client concerns. These sections are sensitive positions, and it would only benefit the company if they take care of the people who handle these issues. We have a lot of experience dealing with new employees, who doesn’t know the history of the buyers account. Since this is the primary weakness of the developer, I think they should make some efforts to prolong the officers position.


The system of real estate in our country is not yet perfect. We have a lot of concerns that needs to be solved. These concerns start with the real estate developers and departments. To the agents and buyers, have you encountered any pressing issue with the developer that you would like to share? Comment on below.
