Residents share the joys of living

    SAFETY, affordability, and convenience . . . these are the much-vaunted features of BRIA Homes that entice aspiring Filipino homeowners to settle down in a BRIA community. And it’s the same factors that, to this day, BRIA residents continue to benefit from.

    Lerie Manuel, a resident of BRIA Homes in San Fernando, Pampanga, derives peace of mind from knowing that she and her husband—and their two sons, aged 23 and 15—live in a secure community that is located close to their school and workplaces.

    “We have been residing here for more than a year now,” Manuel affirms, “and we totally appreciate the advantages of living in a BRIA home. My family and I feel safe and we are constantly assured of a competent BRIA Homes administrative staff that will see to all homeowners’ needs.”

    Before acquiring those units in BRIA Homes, Manuel and her family lived in a remote barangay in San Luis, Pampanga, which was a challenge because it was situated far from key locations. The family then rented a home in a government housing development nearer the town center, which proved to be densely populated. “It was a toxic environment,”

    Manuel relates, “with some residents getting into nasty fights. The situation compelled us to look for an affordable place in a wholesome community, which in turn led us to BRIA Homes.

    Manuel, who dabbles in real estate sales, encourages prospective homeowners to see for themselves how it is to live in a beautiful BRIA community. “Kahit na minimum wage earner, kayang mag-avail ng house-and-lot nila. Their loved ones will feel safe and secure here. As for me, all my worries are gone.”

    Savoring life in a serene and healthful environment has inspired Lerie Manuel to actively help in its maintenance. “I am the representative of our block in our homeowner’s association,” she avers. “I remind fellow residents to look out for our community. I tell them, ‘Kung ano man ang natirhan niyo noon, iba na ngayon.’”

    Another BRIA homeowner, Yolly Espolong, has been residing in BRIA Northridge View with her family for nearly half a year. Her daughter, Vanessa Mae Madriaga, claims they found out about BRIA while strolling in a mall.

    “Nangungupahan lang kami noon sa Caloocan, sa isang barangay na medyo delikado,” Madriaga reveals. She now appreciates the security that a guarded subdivision like BRIA Northridge View offers. “Maganda po dito at malapit din ang lugar sa school ng mga bata.”

    Espolong and Madriaga’s family bought a townhouse unit through a monthly payment scheme. Working as a caregiver in Singapore, Espolong finds paying for the BRIA unit easy-on-the-pocket for her.

    These days, Lerie Manuel and Yolly Espolong are satisfied BRIA homeowners whose families bask in their communities’ eco-friendly spaces and enjoy recreational amenities such as exclusive basketball courts.
