The hills are alive!

The summer is finally here! Everyone’s hitting the beach and on vacation mode. I just got back from a little vacation myself and enjoyed quality time with my sisters and mom.

Sunburnt Sunshine is now back to business and look up on properties that has been on the hills for awhile that I think needs to be out there again to answer your queries on hillside properties particularly, South Hills Subdivision.

Are you one of those folks who are dreaming of a property on the hillside with magnificent view of the city lights at night and the seemingly endless horizon by day? Well, this one is just for you!

Three-level house at Kirkwood. View: Magnificent!
One-storey house with pool ++ panoramic view
Three-level house at Brighton Court. Mountain + partial seaview
An expensive property with a million dollar view!
300sqm/3,228 sqft land at Amber Lane. View: Perfect!

There is always a con. I need to warn you in advance that the public road going to this subdivision is not that good. But what is a few meters of a little bumpy road on your way to your dream property by the hills?

There is something else.

I had the chance to have a short trip down southwest of Cebu with a girlfriend and her mom to visit this lovely house on a cliff in a peaceful town called Aloguinsan. The house sits on a generous land with fruit bearing trees, landscaped gardens and an endless view of the sea.

CLICK HERE TO WATCH the video I made out of pictures taken from my camera during the visit. The music playing in the background is from a song of one of my favorite artists of all time 🙂

We’ve got it all

Crown Riverdale TalambanSome of you liked, commented and sent me private messages when this photo was posted on my FB wall. I know — it’s a beautiful shot of the house and me 🙂 Click on the image to view interior images of this American inspired model house named Murano 155.  It is located on a peak park prime lot which gives you a scenic view of the mountains, lush greenery and a park right across it!  Wow..

More model houses are available at Crown Riverdale so don’t miss to click on the Riverdale Houses.

There is something else.

Official selling date will be on March 20, 2012 yet, but I want you to be one of the first people to know about the first economic condo project walking distance to SM City Cebu. Can you believe that? At an all-inclusive selling price of P 1,420,000.00 (of course this is only pre-selling price) you are very close to “everything” – shopping, schools, seaport and airport.  The deliverable unit is already finished and fitted at this price. This is ideal for a transient rental business for people who are on short trips to Cebu. If you are interested to get a unit, simply reply to this email or email us at with the subject San Marino.

If you like this post, please send the link to your friends.  You can also like our fanpage on facebook to stay updated on the newest real estate events, or twitter us your comments.

I will update my youtube channel as well (will find time, promise).

More exciting news and freebies coming up!



Best buys in the South

Over the week I have visited different housing projects in the south to get the latest construction updates on the sites. In this email, I will feature mid-market housing projects specifically in the Municipality of Minglanilla that I think as a Realtor are best buys in this area based on developer’s track record to deliver on-time quality units, good project management team, practical amenities that you and your family can enjoy and of course the most suitable location for your day-to-day living.

Here’s my top 3:

#1. Kamalaya II Residences and Terraces, Minglanilla (Model units now available for viewing)

#2. Modena, Minglanilla (Ongoing land development, Feb. 2012)

#3. Vizkaya Zen Residences, Minglanilla (Ongoing land development, Feb. 2012)

Important: If you are from Cebu and have not been home for quite sometime, you will be happy to know about the major changes that are happening since you left. Municipalities in the south now have easy access to and from airport via SRP. Major shops, schools and businesses are now operating branches in the south. With this economic growth in the south, real estate housing have also evolved.

There is something else.

Real estate developers normally increase the price of the units between 3%-10% as the site development progresses. It is highly recommended to purchase houses from developers during the pre-selling stage. This has been the strategy of most investors who are into buying and selling properties.

Next week, I will be writing about my best buys in the north and Mactan areas.

If you would like to get more information on a specific housing project, please feel free to write to us. You can also send us your questions through facebook and twitter accounts.

Enjoy the rest of the week!



Hi guys!

I have been visiting real estate projects lately to gather site and construction updates of the properties that I am selling to you.  These two pictures have an impact on me. First, I like to see huge houses and second I like to see the contrast between a giant house and a small me 😉

I really have a thought here but I do not know where it is leading. I want to leave you a quote that I read somewhere, I cannot remember who said it but it says,

“Create a life that you want to spend the rest of your life living in it.”

It is a Saturday! Have a blast!


Where living space matters…

You’re living the life. You need the space. What you deserve to get matters – to us.

As a real estate broker I completely understand the look on my clients’ faces each time I invited them to a showroom or a model unit of a condo that they would have wanted to invest on. It’s either too pricey or too small. Bottomline it’s all about the livable space in a condo unit.

In this video (this is my first newsletter with a video! yipee!) nope, I am not going to be on it, yet. This video will show you a particular new condominium project in Cebu, on a nice location, with practical amenities, enough livable space for you to stay comfortably – at the right price.

Please click to watch. There is a link at the bottom of the video that will lead you to the page in my website. Since this is a new project, expect BIG, BIG promo discounts!

There is something else.

Last February 4, I attended the Cebu launch party of a beachside community project located in Dauin, Negros Oriental. The Plantation’s beachside community offers 40 stunning luxury villas and an investment return. Check out Atmosphere Resorts to find out what this little paradise will feel like once it is completed.

Until next week.
