Ka Tunying

“Kaya natin ‘to” 

These are the words of P.A. Alvarez Properties & Development Corp. chairman Romarico “Bing” Alvarez after the news of the pandemic broke out. 

Real estate is one of the industries affected by COVID-19–from halted operations to low sales performance. Despite all these, P.A Properties immediately called for swift action and toward the third and fourth quarters 2020, the company was back on its feet as operations gradually recovered. 

The vision to provide affordable housing to Filipinos was long etched on Alvarez’s heart because it was the dream of his father.

Hence, P.A. Properties developed 40 communities and constructed more than 20,000 housing units since its inception 26 years ago. It continues to open projects in pursuit of augmenting the production of housing supply in Laguna, Batangas, Cavite, Bulacan, Pampanga, and Metro Manila and its continue to help resolve the country’s housing backlog estimated to reach 12 million units by 2030, according to data provided by the Subdivision and Housing Developers Association Inc (SHDA). 

New face of P.A. properties

Given the business’ advocacy, the good-hearted businessman decided to reach a wider niche and, finally, personally hand-picked the new face of P.A. Properties, broadcaster Anthony “Ka Tunying” Taberna.

The company believes that Ka Tunying embodies the hard-working Filipino, mindful of providing for his family the basic needs and desires of his loved ones. P.A. properties believes that his determination is aligned with the company’s thrust of helping the Filipinos achieve their dream to own a home.

Before the endorsement agreement, Ka Tunying already featured P.A. Properties on his Youtube Channel; Tune in Kay Tunying. Through that episode, he learned that the company is focused not only on its stakeholders but also on its employees. There is a special arrangement for employees who want to acquire a property. 

Is it really the best time to buy a home during this pandemic?.

Ka Tunying asked the company, and he learned that there are reasons why the home purchase is recommended. At this time of the pandemic, home buying can be exciting with so many promotional offerings such as extensive discounts on ready- to- occupy units. Terms are more lenient and considerate; customers were provided alternative payment methods online – with an array of new payment facilities introduced. Reservations were even made available online.

Ka Tunying also noted other attributes offered by P.A Properties such as affordability, architecture of units, and the planning of properties.

With Pag-IBIG Fund’s monthly amortization for as low as P6, 300, anyone can easily invest in a home today. 

Moving forward, P.A. Properties, with Ka Tunying as its new brand ambassador, seeks to pursue a brighter and smarter business ahead. 

The company promises to continue building houses and dreams as it embarks on new communities to develop in the CALABARZON, Central Luzon, and Metro Manila areas. It will also extend its arms to other progressive regions to cover a wider territory and forge ample alliances to help more Filipinos to attain their dream home.
