VLOG: Cagayan de Oro Lot for Sale in Xavier Estates and Hillsborough

Today I visited 2 our newest listings in Uptown, Cagayan de Oro City. Cagayan is generally divided into two areas – Uptown and Downtown CDO. Uptown CDO is the area around SM CIty (near old airport). Most of my clients prefer to invest here because of the elevated location making it a  flood free area, master-planned community and safe and secure subdivisions with a lot of amenities. The 2 lots I visited are located in premium subdivisions Uptown. One is a 306 sqm ridge lot in Hillsborough Pointe and the other is a 248 sqm lot in Xavier Estates.

Who is a person you know who is selling their property? Please send me an email with their name and situation. I promise they’ll get the excellent service they deserve.

Alexander’s Truly Wealthy Story: Lot Sold in Less than 2 Months

Real estate is quite a noble profession. As a realtor you have the opportunity to help hundreds of people, not only with their real estate needs, but with their other needs as well. Alexander is an old schoolmate of mine. He reached out to me in November last year to list his lot in Vista Verde. Like me, he was getting married this year, and he wanted to use the proceeds of the sale for his wedding.

The challenge here was that Alex was based in the UK so I had to communicate with him mainly online. I explained the whole selling process as well as the taxes and fees to be paid. The good thing was he was able to come home briefly for the Holidays so I was able to advice him to get an SPA done authorizing his mom to transact on his behalf in the event that the lot would get sold. You see, if a seller is based abroad, then the SPA has to be consularized. This can be a bit of a hassle on the part of the seller especially if the embassy is a long way from where he/she lives. If the seller, however, is in the Philippines at the time the SPA is made, then he can have it notarized – it’s easier and more convenient.

Sure enough, just a few weeks after his return to UK, I was able to show his lot to a buyer (Sir Jess) and after a brief negotiation, the deal was closed. Now Sir Jess’ son (Jet) owns a lot in Vista Verde Village for his future family and Alexander has the funds he needs for his wedding. It’s a win-win. I believe true success comes from finding win-win solutions and making everybody happy.

5 star all the way.
-Alexander

Alexander was able to sell his lot less than 2 months after listing it with Truly Wealthy Realty because of the following formula: Right pricing + right marketing + competent real estate broker.

Successful negotiation is not about getting to “yes”; it’s about mastering “no” and understanding what the path to an agreement is.
– Christopher Voss

So how do you know if your price is right? Set a meeting with the best real estate broker you know and avail of a Property Market Analysis. In setting a selling price, you can’t just pick a number out of thin air (some owners seem to do this). There has to be a basis for your pricing. A good broker will run you through the process on how to set a fair selling price.

What about you?

Jess’ Truly Wealthy Story: New Lot Owner in Vista Verde

What I love about being a real estate broker is the time freedom and flexibility it gives me. Even though I’m not in CDO, I can still talk to clients and work on deals. I was first able to talk to Sir Jess when I was back home in Iligan City for the Holidays. It was December 30 and we were busy preparing for the new year when Sir Jess called to inquire about a listing I had in Vista Verde. He wanted check out the lot then but since I was still in Iligan, we agreed to meet instead on January 3.

It was my first site tour for 2018. I had been in Iligan since Dec 23 and I was itching to get back to work. I really enjoy my work as a real estate broker and so as much as I loved the holiday break, I was excited to get back into the swing on things.

I showed Sir Jess the lot and he liked it immediately. His son was actually the buyer but he would be helping out with the payment. I walked him through the sales process, explained the taxes and that was when he decided to put in an offer for the lot. He reached an agreement with the seller and the deal was closed.

Alex is a great advisor, open minded, quick to entertain and make suggestions, a diligent worker and very patient with us. 
– Jess

Now his son, who is only in his 20’s, is a proud lot owner in Vista Verde Village. I’m happy to have been able to help them acquire this lot at a good deal. The best reward in being a real estate broker is the happiness of the client with his or her purchase.

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.

VLOG: How to Buy a House in 5 Steps

The common misconception that many buyers have is that buying a home is a long and complicated process. I’ve been a real estate broker for over 5 years now and I can say that it doesnt need to be. Investing in real estate is a simple process. Here’s a vlog on how to buy a house in 5 steps. Enjoy!

 

My Thoughts on Leadership

When we founded Truly Wealthy Realty 5 years ago, there were only 4 of us at the helm. We did everything from marketing to accounting to office management. Actually, we didn’t even have an office yet. We just held a home office at Mitch’s house and all our records were kept in one tiny red box. Now, 5 years later, Truly Wealthy Realty occupies the entire second floor of Neri Building and we have dozens of people in the team.

God has blessed Truly Wealthy Realty so much and I’m very thankful for what the realty has become. Yet we are still so far from our goals. There is so much more that needs to be done. What I realized in my years as a real estate broker here in Cagayan de Oro is that it’s  a lot easier to be a broker than a leader. As a broker, I just need to take care of my clients real estate needs and that’s it. I don’t even think of it as work because many of my clients are such a pleasure to work with. I think of it more of as helping out a friend. But because the realty has grown, many more people have come to join the team. And now, as a Team Leader, I need to lead these people. And leading people, well, it’s a challenge.

Every person is different so you’re style of leadership for each individual must be unique. Plus, millennials are even tougher to lead. I should know, because I’m one myself. We millennials are no longer driven solely by money but also by our passions, ideals and beliefs. It’s something that baffles the past generation because in their era, to work solely to make a living was fine. But now, in our era, we don’t only want to make a living. We want to make a difference.

truly wealthy realty + cdo rea estate brokerSo how do you lead people?

As I learned from one of my mentors, Francis Endaya, you need to delve in why the person is doing what he’s doing. What is his why? You need to look out for what motivates the person, what makes him tick, what drives him…You need to get to know a person on a deeper level in order to lead effectively.

cdo real estate broker + TRuly wealthy realty

Being a leader is hard because to lead effectively, you need to grow constantly. You can’t give what you don’t have. So leaders need to constantly improve their game. They need to work twice as hard and learn fast. Being a leader means you must also be self-aware. Awareness is powerful because once you are self-aware, you know what your strengths and weaknesses are. And then you can improve on your strengths and work on your weaknesses. Lastly, a good leader leads with humility. Because ultimately, leadership is about service. It’s not about lording it over people but about bringing yourself down to serve. Humility is about saying you’re sorry even if it’s not even your fault. It’s about learning to apologize when it is your fault. It’s about being accountable for your actions when you’ve made the wrong decision.

truly wealthy realty + cdo rea estate broker 2

I believe humility is the most powerful trait a leader can have. Because it’s only when you’re humble that you can grow and become a better person. Jesus is the ultimate symbol of true humility. He is God and yet he knelt down to wash the feet of his disciples.

Leadership is not easy. In fact, it’s really hard. But to be able to be part of another persons growth, to be able to contribute to his success is one of the most rewarding experiences in the world. And so I will continue to be a leader – in Truly Wealthy Realty, in our Discipleship Group and wherever God calls me to lead. Because the things in this world will fade away but when you lead, you leave an imprint on the lives of people that they in turn can pass on to others.

What about you?

Are you being called to lead but find yourself resisting the call? The world needs more leaders to pave the way to a better future. Rise to the challenge. Take the call. Go Lead.

Go life a Truly Wealthy life.

Yuli’s Truly Wealthy Story: Invested in Corner Lot in Pueblo De Oro

Everyday is your chance to make an impact in the lives of others.

As a real estate broker, I carry a huge responsibility in my hands. Since I’m dealing with millions of pesos (houses don’t come cheap) I have to be extremely careful. I met Sir Yuli through one of our partner agents in Truly Wealthy Realty. Although he’s based in the States he wanted to invest in a lot in Cagayan de Oro because he wanted to someday, build his dream home here. As we was only in Cagayan de Oro for a few weeks on vacation, he needed things to move quickly. After seeing a few of our listings, he decided on a corner lot in Pueblo de Oro. We walked him through the sales process, explained the taxes and that was when he decided to put in an offer for the lot. He reached an agreement with the sellers and the deal was closed.

Never knew Truly Wealthy Realty consumer review till I became their client. Ms. Alex is patient, knowledgeable, professional – and managed my expectations on the processes of buying a property. Happy with all the services I received, it was a great experience. So blessed to know you!

The Power of Being Self-aware

self-awarePhoto from http://www.moregci.com

Do you know yourself?

Self-awareness is a powerful thing. We are complex beings and despite the amount of time I have spent being me, I still discover new things about myself each day. Self-awareness does not come in an instant. You will need to spend time analyzing your actions and studying yourself.

Here’s a simple exercise to check if you are self-aware. Ask yourself these questions:

What is my personality type?
Am I an introvert or an extrovert?
What are my strengths?
What are my weaknesses?
What motivates me?
What excites me?

Now you may think, why do I need to study myself?

To excel in life, you need to know who you really are.

Once you know yourself, you’ll know how to motivate and empower yourself to do the things you should do. You’ll know what your strengths and weaknesses are. You’ll be able to identify the personality types you can work best with.

A simple way you can apply self-awareness in your life is in choosing your career. For instance, I’m an extrovert. I love meeting people and learning from them. My weaknesses are, I’m not very detail-oriented as I’m a big picture kind of person. I don’t like math. I tend to take a while when it comes to solving stuff. My strengths are public speaking, networking with people and I also enjoy anything that involves music and art. I don’t like routine. I enjoy doing something different everyday and learning new things.

I’m a nurse by profession and when I graduated college, I tried working as a nurse for a year. A nurse requires attention to detail because you can’t afford make a mistake. You’re dealing with peoples lives so it’s important that you check and recheck everything. I remember that before every shift I would pray that I wouldn’t make a mistake and everything would just go smoothly. Suffice to say, just a few months into working as a nurse, I had confirmed that it wasn’t the career for me. It required a lot of attention to detail, which is not my strength. And the work was routinary, which did not suit my personality type.

Now, I’m working full time as a real estate broker here in Cagayan de Oro City. The job requires that I meet and speak to a lot of people everyday. I don’t have to go to our office unless we have a board meeting. Everyday is different and I get to work on my own time. Since being a real estate broker involves meeting quotas, I need to think of creative ways to share our available listings to our clients. Being a real estate broker is the perfect fit to my personality type and strengths. Because this career fits me so well, I get to enjoy my job while making money.

Life is too short to be stuck in a job you hate or are not good at. When you choose a career that does not fit you, you’ll have to work twice as hard just to survive. But when your job is inclined to your strengths, then that, combined with a lot of hard work will allow you to soar to great heights. Think of the most successful people you know. Chances are, the career they have chosen is inclined to their natural strengths and personality type.

Self-awareness is a powerful thing. When you are self-aware, you open so many doors. You’ll know the opportunities to say yes to, and which ones to say no to.

So now let me ask you, do you know yourself?

If yes, good for you. You can now start applying what you know about you in your life so you can be on your way to becoming a success.

If no, perhaps it’s time to get to know you. Take a this Myers Briggs Personality Test. This can help you start to know yourself.

Go live a Truly Wealthy life!

-Alex
