Philippine Realty TV ends ‘Search for the Superstar Sellers’
Philippine Realty TV, the country’s longest-running real estate TV show, recently concluded its “Search for the Superstar Sellers” in partnership with mass housing developer 8990 Holdings. The country’s first reality series for real estate sales agents finally came to a successful culmination as the contestants faced several chalstastar lenges to win this competition.
In a surprise announcement to the series contestants, call center account specialist Benjamina “Benj” Buyson-De Omaña from Taytay, Rizal, was proclaimed the very first winner of the real estate sales agent search. The contest employed a points system format that awarded points for every successful sale and buyer brought in to view the model units of 8990 Holdings.
Contestants were tasked to sell the projects of 8990 Holdings under its Deca Homes brand namely; Deca Clark Resort Residences in Pampanga, Urban Deca Towers in Muntinlupa and Urban Deca Homes Campville in Muntinlupa. Challenges for the contestants ranged from recruiting other agents, to pulling in potential clients straight from the streets to bring them to the model units, where the contestants made their sales presentations.
Aside from the commission from sales she was able to bring in, Buyson-De Omaña won an appliance showcase and overnight staycation from Philippine Realty TV’s brokerage firm Realty Emporium, as well as an overnight stay in Azalea Hotel Baguio from 8990 Holdings.
‘Never give up’
8990 Holdings president Januario Jesus Atencio III addressed the contestants and assuaged them on the hardships they have faced in their selling career so far. He says: “Never give up. There’s a lot of rejection. But successful sales people realize that rejection is still part of the game. If your client rejects you, it is merely that it is not the right time for him to buy real estate. But what you have is a power that you now possess so that you can go out, fulfill your clients’ dreams, and make him the better person through buying a house that he was meant to be.”
8990 Housing Development Corp., a leading property developer especially in the Visayas and Mindanao regions is now in Luzon with several housing projects in Pampanga. Its first major highrise, Deca Tower on Edsa is its biggest project to date with Megawide doing the construction.
Since its inception in 2002, 8990 Holdings’ Deca Homes has spread across the country as the Philippines’ only nationwide mass-housing homebuilder. Today, Deca Homes has established 7 branches, managing a total of 19 projects. It has provided 33,000 families with their own homes, with 11,000 more units to be finished by the end of the year.
Now every Filipino’s dream of an affordable quality home can finally come true with the Deca Homes financing package. With its 8990 CTS Gold financing scheme, one can avail of the 25-year monthly amortization and enjoy low-interest rate without the hassle. It’s truly a golden opportunity for homeowners.
Philippine Realty TV executive producer John Aguilar was pleased with the turnout of the contest, saying that the TV show has come a long way in terms of its relevance to the real estate industry. “This is our proof of concept as we transition our show into a platform that brings in actual sales for our clients and partners,” Aguilar says. “It’s also heartwarming that we get to share with our partner Deca Homes’ vision of providing jobs and housing opportunities to more Filipinos through our efforts.”
