When it comes to determining who to trust and approach for your real estate needs, whether it’s buying, selling or investing, it’s important to only deal with authorized professionals. If you don’t already know, I’m a member of REBAP Makati Chapter as one of their certified real estate brokers and serving for 2 years as the VP of External Affairs; but for those of you who might be wondering what that means, all the information you need is right here.
More particularly, the reasons why you should be working with us.
1. PIONEERS OF PROFESSIONAL REAL ESTATE
In 1978, when working for real estate was not yet considered a true “profession” in the Philippines, a group of licensed real estate brokers who are concerned about the industry, made it their mission to work together and professionalize the field. They also addressed the ethical standards for licensing real estate practitioners and how it should be raised. These group of founders established the association that ties their firm beliefs together, otherwise known today as the Real Estate Brokers Association of the Philippines, Inc. or REBAP.
2. GOVERNMENT-REGISTERED AND RECOGNIZED
The following year of its establishment, REBAP has been formally registered under the Securities and Exchange Commission as a non-stock, non-profit, non-sectarian and non-political corporation. Their advocacy on standing up for real estate issues and in service of the public has earned them the recognition from the government and different industries.
3. WORK WITH THE EXPERTS
Through REBAP, real estate professionals are subjected to whether they will be considered as “Certified Real Estate Brokers” or CRBs for short. This was done in order to ensure investors, buyers and sellers that they are dealing with accredited brokers. CRBs are experts in listing properties, negotiating deals, selling, investments, dealing with taxes and other real estate transactions for the community they serve in.
4. DIFFERENT CHAPTERS, SAME CORE VALUES
REBAP currently has more than 1200 regular and associate certified real estate brokers across 27 chapters in Metro Manila and regions beyond. Expansion continues to spread in key areas of the Philippines and invite other licensed real estate brokers who share the same objectives for their careers. Wherever you go, everyone holds the same integrity, competence, reliability, ethics and responsibility.
5. WE VALUE WORK-LIFE BALANCE
As passionate as we are at doing what we do, like attending real estate conventions, holding monthly membership meetings or hosting our own events for different causes; we also thrive in building our relationship as a team and chapter as a whole by going on excursions and retreats; playing sports to encourage collaboration and communication between members. One of our CRBs even post vlogs on YouTube to document just how much fun we have during our team building trips.
6. PRIME LOCATION PERKS
Chapters like REBAP Makati have specialized CRBs specifically for that area, so we are the best choice for knowing which properties to invest in. Makati is one, if not the top, market for luxurious properties in the residential and commercial category. Working with us will help you find the perfect home/office for your needs and budget.
