Congratulations to the new real estate brokers who passed the May 24, 2015 real estate brokers’ examination!
I’m very happy to welcome you to the real estate profession It’s truly an exciting time to be a real estate broker, specially with the current real estate boom, improvements in the Philippine economy, and the ASEAN Integration. I wrote some tips for new real estate brokers way back, you may want to check it out here.
Incidentally, the Real Estate Brokers Association of the Philippines (REBAP). which we are members of, will be holding its 2nd National General Membership Meeting (NGMM) on June 26, 2015 at Le Pavillon, Pasay City. It is being spearheaded by REBAP LMP (Las Pinas, Muntinlupa, and Paranaque). of which we are members. Registration starts at 12:00 noon, fee is P600.
I am very interested in the topic which is “Real Estate Outlook In Light of the ASEAN Integration” so I am going to be all ears for the keynote speech and technical discussion. I heard that Ms. Marissa Benitez of Colliers will be speaking and I will surely be learning a lot since her conclusions will be backed up by data (she is a UP Statistics grad after all and a well-respected valuer). I believe you can ask May, the REBAP LMP secretary,
about the details of the event at 0998 572 3308.
