Glorian Eleazar Berco, a bank manager in one of the leading financial institutions in the country today, knows quite a lot about investments, property values, and the financing schemes that go with purchasing a property, so when the time came for her to decide on her first home, she settled with a company and a property that offered the best value propositions.
As a proud owner of a two-bedroom unit in Cedar Crest by DMCI Homes, Glorian, or Ian to her friends, is very much thrilled about living in a community that she refers to as “resort-like”, very safe and secure, plus accessible to her place of work, not to mention affordable without compromising quality. She is one of the first to move in at Amaranth, the first building to rise in Cedar Crest, and is witnessing the gradual emergence of a charming community with friendly neighbors, which are mostly comprised of your families and start-up couples.
Having been recently married, Glorian and her husband, Franque, moved to Cedar Crest in May this year as excited homeowners. Her husband is currently working abroad, so the issue of her living alone for the meantime was on top of mind for the couple.
“My husband feels very much assured that I am safe here,” Ian related. “Instead of living in our previous residence, which was a condo unit in Pasig that I rented for about 12 years, my husband has peace of mind knowing that I am coming home everyday to a safe, gated, and well-secured location.”
Such advantage is priceless for the couple – a sentiment that all residents now enjoy at the medium-rise condominium residence in DMCI Homes’ Acacia Estates township community in Taguig City. Add to that the very affordable financing that they shelled out for the condo unit, and Glorian feels fortunate to be among the unit owners of a DMCI Homes property.
“I deal with a lot of clients including sales agents from DMCI Homes, as well as other developers, and I help in facilitating the financing of buyers’ homes. So I am very much familiar with the most practical and best value projects in the metro today because I get to compare them from price per square meter to other add-on values. For example, the price of my 2-bedroom unit is worth 20% lower than a smaller, 1-bedroom unit in places like Bonifacio Global City and Pasig, and the whole property feels congested. That’s why I was eventually convinced by the agents of DMCI Homes to get a unit with them, and I’m glad I did. Now that I have moved in, I am a testament to the quality of products and services that DMCI Homes offers,” Ian added.
She was also attracted by the ambience of Cedar Crest and other DMCI Homes development; the private, homey feel it exudes as a lush community filled with lots of greens and open spaces – a rarity among today’s existing condo projects. Ian also loves the Neo-Asian minimalist-inspired theme of the buildings which adds a subtle and elegant look to the entire development. A view of the landscaped atrium at the ground floor which beckons outside her door also refreshes, and reduces the restrictive effects of otherwise bland condo living setups, because of the airy and bright feel.
“I love the design so much that I also used the theme for my own unit. It’s simple, elegant and uncluttered, enhanced by a harmony of colors and modern accents. It’s also perfect for my 60-sqm unit (total floor area) which I further enhanced by putting in customized furniture to maximize spaces,” she noted.
Currently working in Shaw Boulevard in Pasig, Glorian gets to work from Cedar Crest in only 10 minutes, so she is glad to avoid long travel and arrives at the office fresh and unhurried. It is accessible via C-5 Road and a few minutes away from Bonifacio Global City, the Makati CBD, and Ortigas Center.
She also gets home in time to enjoy quiet and private moments around the development, chat with new neighbors and enough rest for the following day. During instances when her unit requires some minor works, the friendly Property Management Office (PMO) team is always on hand to assist her.
“Our community is growing slowly with more residents moving in, but I see that the development is still relatively quiet and peaceful even with the rising number of occupants. I really hope Cedar Crest stays that way as a peaceful and idyllic residence,” she ended.
