Lumiere Residences | September 5, 2021

Studies say moving into a new home is one of the most stressful life events with all the effort and planning that go with it.


Vanessa Ferrer, a mother of one, is thankful they didn’t get to experience this feeling when her family moved into their 2-bedroom unit in DMCI Homes’ Lumiere Residences project in Pasig City last November especially since it happened in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic.


With the help of DMCI Homes’ Post-Construction Group and Lumiere Residences’ Property Management Office (PMO), Vanessa and her family were able to settle in their new home with ease. 


In fact, she even considers the experience as one of the happiest moments of her life. “’Yung pinakamasayang part is when you open the door. Ito na ‘yung investment mo and finally you are seeing it,” she beamed. “It’s more than what I really actually expected. It was a very happy moment when we received the unit.”


Great investment


Vanessa and her family moved into Lumiere Residences after living in a condominium in Rizal province for over a decade. “We decided to transfer to a new home because our old place was just a loft-type 1-bedroom unit. Since our son is already 13, we wanted him to have his own space. So we decided to look for a bigger unit.”


Apart from a bigger space, she also wanted to live closer to her workplace in Ortigas and her son’s school in Mandaluyong City. “Our primary consideration in finding a home is first, location. We wanted easy access for groceries, for our food. Number two, it should be near our work or the school of our son to cut on travel time.”


Ang dami naming savings sa oras because of Lumiere’s accessibility. It proves na one great investment is living in a prime location. Kasi ‘yung bonding moment at saka ‘yung additional time na ilalagay mo for more important matters, ‘yun ‘yung kapalit nu’ng binayaran mo for that prime location. And it’s worth paying for,” she pointed out.

Living in the three-tower condominium community along Pasig Boulevard for the past nine months makes Vanessa even more convinced that she made the right decision to invest in a DMCI Homes project. “Living in Lumiere has been really rewarding. Nakikita namin ‘yung community is very well managed and very well organized.”


Vanessa particularly praised the condo’s security personnel for strictly implementing health and safety protocols to ensure the health and well-being of residents. “It really matters lalo na ngayong pandemic that they are able to control ‘yung visitors coming in. And when they control the visitors coming in, nako-control din ‘yung dami ng infections.”  


“Apart from that, ‘yung peace of mind na binibigay ng security every time na nakikita mo silang umiikot around the area. Kitang-kita mo ‘yung concern nila sa residents. So nandu’n ‘yong happiness ko that I know the family that I’m leaving in my home, babalikan ko rin silang maayos pagkatapos ng work day ko,” she related.


Moreover, she also commended the PMO for minimizing face-to-face interactions by encouraging online transactions. She also appreciates the PMO’s efforts to keep the residents informed and engaged through regular community updates in various online channels that include the DMCI Communities App. “It’s very helpful especially for new residents like me,” she said.


Isa pa sa mga na-appreciate ko is very active silang mag-encourage sa mga residents to join community programs, halimbawa kapag may blood donation. Mayroon din kaming masses online which is very helpful kasi hindi kami nakakalabas to go to church,” Vanessa shared.

Just one month before Christmas and although we are in the middle of a pandemic, we had a very peaceful and festive experience here in Lumiere.”

‘Worth every centavo’


Vanessa said she has a long list of things she loves most about their new home.


Among these is the Lumiventt® Technology which creates a spacious, breezy, and well-lighted environment inside DMCI Homes’ high-rise condominiums through Sky Patios, landscaped atriums, single loaded corridors and breezeways.


Hindi mo feel na nasa building ka lang. Para bang andu’n ka lang din sa isang bahay na may garden kang katabi na very comfortable,” said Vanessa, who also revealed that it was this unique design which piqued her interest about DMCI Homes condominiums.


“In fact, nitong summer, hindi namin na-feel ‘yung kainitan ng summer kasi sobrang lakas ng umiikot na breathing fresh air doon sa unit at kapag umuulan naman, sobrang lamig na parang ikaw ay naka-aircon na so tuwang-tuwa kami,” she revealed.


Vanessa also likes Lumiere Residences’ wide array of resort-inspired amenities and pocket gardens, which she said, help keep the pandemic blues away. “‘Yung anak ko at ‘yung mga kaibigan niya sobrang nag-enjoy gamitin ‘yung swimming pool and we look forward na gamitin ‘yung iba pang amenities once the situation normalizes,” shared Vanessa.


Bukod du’n marami kasing halaman, mga puno around Lumiere. Hindi lang sa level ng unit namin kung hindi everywhere, every common area sa condominium may makikita kang puno. So parang mabi-break ‘yung monotonous feeling that you have because of the pandemic and nawawala ‘yung boredom mo,” she added.


Vanessa said she could give more reasons why she considers her unit as a good investment but her greatest measure would still be the happiness felt by her family especially her son over their new home. “What I can advise to those families who would like to invest in a residential unit is to know the value of your long day and night of hard work. So kung mag-i-invest ka galing do’n sa pinaghirapan mo, make it worth every centavo na binibigay mo.”


“From convenience ng location, ‘yung comfort na ibinibigay sa ‘yo, to the security, to the kind of neighborhood, and of course ‘yung talagang ma e-enjoy ng family members mo kasi that’s what you’re really working for—mabigyan ng happiness ‘yung mga mahal mo sa buhay,” she pointed out.


Kasi nu’ng kinuha ko ‘yung Lumiere, ang pinaka-worth it na nakita ko is ‘yung napangiti ko ‘yung mga family members ko especially ‘yung aming anak,” Vanessa said smiling.
