A big thank you to our heroes, our champions
We all have heroes and champions in our lives. While we have always been grateful that they are part of our lives, the past two years have highlighted all the more their importance to us.
As we celebrate the Philippine Daily Inquirer’s 37th year, we pay homage to the heroes and champions in our midst—people, companies and organizations who have made a difference, who have made it their cause to continue improving the society to which we belong, and who continue to champion worthy causes and the well-being of others.
The Philippine real estate industry isn’t lacking when it comes to heroes and champions—those who continue to build better homes, communities and public spaces for us.
We thus consider it a privilege to be covering such a dynamic sector, where you meet people and companies constantly seeking for ways to change lives for the better, and to further enhance local landscapes by bringing world class features, designs, and practices to the country. At the same time, we’ve seen how all these projects have truly helped those on the receiving end. For all these efforts, we salute the hardworking people in the real estate industry.
A big thank you
As we give you today’s 60-page issue of Inquirer Property, we would like to take this opportunity to thank our own heroes and champions—people who have allowed our team to continue doing what we love and do best. That is, to deliver the news.
We would like to thank our families first and foremost for constantly understanding our busy schedules as we miss out on certain milestone celebrations—your support means the world to us.
To all our industry sources who never failed us, always willing to answer and share their insights, thank you for entrusting your stories to us.
To our contributors, columnists, layout artist, editorial production assistants (past and present), our hardworking sales team who remain unfazed by the challenges of the pandemic, our circulation team who ensured that copies of Inquirer will always be available to you, our printing press and IT team who continue to ensure that our paper would come out, thank you.
To our advertisers and readers, the lifeline of Inquirer Property, thank you for never leaving our side all these years, especially during the most tumultuous periods of the pandemic. You may not know it, but you—our loyal partners and readers—are the ones who continue to inspire us to deliver balanced news and fearless views, to constantly find meaning in what we do even if at times, it would be easier for us to just settle in the comfort of our homes and our families. So again thank you—words might not be enough to make you feel our heartfelt gratitude.
We are thus one with all of you in praying and hoping for a better 2023. We look forward to sharing more stories, interviews, coffee klatches, and light moments with you, catching up on the latest buzz and happenings (serious or otherwise!) around us, and celebrating milestones and achievements in the industry together as we aim even higher in the coming years.
Again, to our heroes and champions—our families, colleagues, and friends in the industry—thank you so much and we hope you’ll find joy and inspiration reading our issue today.
