As an online lead generator for Driven Marketing Group, I never expected that my adventures as a House Hopper will be this significant, heart-warming in a way and well, life-changing. This blog post is about my real estate property blogging experience and how it changed the way I look at the industry and my attitude towards it.
You know, if not for my Driven OLG involvement under Ms.Janet Toral of Digital Filipino, I wouldn't really care about real estate industry. For so many years, I already feel "secured" and to borrow my Mama's words "Hindi mo na kailangang mag-worry kasi hindi ka matutulog sa kalsada." I was assured I have a home.
HOUSE HOPPER spotted resting in one of the units of Grand Riviera Suites along Manila Bay. If you are looking for a condo unit along Roxas Boulevard very near US Embassy, I recommend you consider this property. Contact me for more details 09177398227 or check my blog post about it.
I'll be a hypocrite if I say that I instantly love real estate... Nope, it was not a love at first sight. It was more of a "to get by" thing that I need to do while I am still figuring out what I really want to do this year... I was feeling low and lost last summer after I failed to get the international tourism scholarship I long for.
It was also about that time when Ms.Janet asked me what I want to do next. I said I'm still trying to figure that out but I'm very certain that I really want to take my MBA in Tourism... How? I don't know; I failed to come up with a back-up plan...
So as one of my mentors, Ms.J asked me to join the Driven Online Lead Generation Network. "Mahilig ka naman magbyahe, i-check mo na rin kaya un iba't ibang properties tapos i-blog ang site trip experience mo." she said.
As one of her CBSME graduates, I said yes half-heartedly and that's how HOUSE HOPPER came to life...
out of despair and out of my plan because "I don't know what should I do next in my life!"
My property blogging experience was a roller coaster ride... there were moments I just want to give up especially during the first few weeks because it's not something that I am really passionate about. But you know, being an optimist and a strong believer of FUN, I tried to look at the brighter side so I started to enjoy everything that I do as a DrivenOLG. The moment I changed my attitude towards real estate was also a moment of big realizations for me.
DID YOU KNOW that when I was in elementary, my dream was to become an engineer. It was during Ms.Intramurals Beauty Pageant when the host asked me what I want to become when I grow up and I answered "I want to become an engineer because I want to build tall buildings." I love sketching and drawing different kind of houses when I was little. Mama even told me that my second name "Allison" was inspired by the name of a beautiful building she saw when she was pregnant with me.
It was during my site tripping in Bulacan when I was reminded of that childhood dream and I got excited when I realized that somehow, through my House Hopper adventures, I am fulfilling a part of that dream. I got too delighted about it that's why I was able to make my first ever video blog for House Hopper!
Please watch it and let me know what you think about it. :-)
PANGARAP NG BAWAT PAMILYANG PILIPINO ANG MAGKABAHAY.
Yes, every Filipino family dream of having their own house and lot or invest in a condo. Most of our hardworking OFWs aim to give a good life to their family, send their children or siblings to a reputable school and save for their dream house. "Gusto kong magkaroon ng bahay at lupa." is a common answer why many of us work with sweat and blood. And that's why this is now part of my calling. I've decided to answer this call for help and take it as part of my sole searching soul advocacy...
- to help Filipino Families make informed decisions before they purchase
- to give them list and options of available real estate properties and ultimately, to make their dream home a reality!
It's more than the sale! I can honestly say that Real Estate Blogging is now closer to my heart. It's not just about generating leads anymore, it's way more than that. It's an unexpected advocacy... a calling that I adhere to answer with "Real Estate with Real Service from Real People" together with this fellow driven individuals.
I am Driven to help Filipino Families find their dream house.
It opened a white space for me to color and fill with values.
Ms.Janet Toral, e-Commerce Advocate, features my HOUSE HOPPER blog page in her various talks in the Philippines as well as international presentations on Digital Marketing for Real Estate Industry.
I was able to attend several events related to Real Estate and this also inspired me to have my formal blog for this industry. REALESTATEGUIDE.asia will soon be ready to serve you with tips and news related to real estate developments.
I was scammed! I thought I'll be making lots of money as an online lead generator but I ended up getting more than what I've asked for... I earned more than what money can buy... new friends, mentors and connections!
I have a new passion and my life has now a direction.
I am not required to take this 12 hours class but it is part of my commitment to be better as a real estate property blogger and an online lead generator.
I grow myself so that I can give more to others.
ACHIEVE OUR BIGGEST DREAMS!
