    Housing developer goes for cashless transactions

    BRIA Homes, the fastest-growing mass housing developer in the Philippines, has once more found a way to make life easier and more convenient for its present and future homeowners: a partnership with GCash, a mobile money application from Globe Telecom.

    BRIA Executives, Red J. Rosales, COO and President, and Michelle E. Hernandez, Chief Accountant, together with GCash Head of Enterprise, Jose Luis Reyes, signed a partnership contract held at Bria Homes Head Office in Starmall Edsa-Shaw, Mandaluyong City.

    In 2019, GCash enabled in-app bills payment for the monthly amortization dues of the Bria Homes customers. This partnership grew to include commissions disbursement of their real estate sellers via PowerPay+. As of today, GCash is working to activate QR payments for their 20 sales offices to enable cashless payment of reservation fees for interested customers.

    Meanwhile, BRIA Homes’ flexible payment methods—bank financing and Pag-IBIG funding—continue to help make BRIA homeownership attainable for ordinary Filipinos, a vision that is aligned with the property developer’s winning formula: affordability plus quality means a Beautiful BRIA home for every Filipino.

    BRIA’s winning formula manifests in all its communities nationwide: superior-quality affordable homes amidst wholesome, eco-friendly spaces, with modern recreational amenities such as basketball courts. Perimeter fences, 24-hour CCTVs, and guarded entrance and exits ensure the security of residents.

    Finally, all BRIA developments are located close to public transport hubs, giving easy access to nearby hospitals, schools, churches, and retail establishment
