The event served also as the venue for graduating students of Real Estate Management to defend their final project – a mock up real estate project development wherein they conceptualized Asinaya Villas and marketed it as an upcoming residential and leisure destination in Naic, Cavite. The students confidently defended its project by accurately answering the challenging questions thrown by the panel composed of professors, architect, and lawyer.

Event Review

As a licensed real estate broker, the blogger, representing Real Estate Blog PH, has been into several real estate events. This event organized by REM students of iAcademy was done in a professional manner. Considering that they are students, the line up of speakers and sponsors are brilliant. Sponsors include RE/MAX Philippines, RE/MAX Capital, KMC Savills Inc., Philgems Realty Corp. , Paramount Life & General Insurance Corporation, among others.


Rarely that you can gather a Country Manager, a President and CEO, a Training Director, another President, in a Saturday afternoon for a class project. The moment you entered in the event venue, the blogger was greeted by bubbly students in the Registration Area. The venue had three company booth – KMC Savills, RE/MAX Philippines, and of course iAcademy. KMC Savills had an exciting game before you earn your freebies.


The REM students’ project, Asinaya Villas, is both challenging and rewarding. Each of them got an exposure to what the real world of real estate industry offers. Ava Diaz Daza, a REM student, did a good job explaining to the blogger the scale model of Asinaya Villas. Prior to this event, REM students were able to sell a number of units when they did a mock booth manning activity.


Just like any other event, attendees would look forward to an exciting gimmick and even food. Raffle items from event (student) organizers and sponsors are something that each attendee can be proud of. Food was delicious and overflowing branded coffee was a winner for a coffee lover like the blogger himself.

Congratulations to iAcademy REM students for a successful event. Real Estate Blog PH is lucky to be your media partner.
