The bond of brothers
With the Po family now part of ArthaLand, you can expect us to create value. My dad’s principle has always been that when you sell something to a buyer, you have to make sure the buyers are always happy because that way, you can get more business. Business is not a one time transaction, it’s a going concern.
President and CEO, Century Pacific
Our dad would drive us around the city or residential villages, point out things and say, ‘Look at this building, observe how it’s on the corner so there’s commercial value on more than just one side,’ or ‘Look at that house, see how it’s facing east so it is facing the sun in the morning and not in the afternoon,’ or ‘Notice how that building is designed—the design is such that years from now, it won’t look dated and old.’
In other words, we were trained while growing up to think about what makes real estate interesting and valuable.
