I am connected with Cebu Realty & Brokerage for four years now (and still counting). In the past years, I received several offers from others firms but I chose to stay in Cebu Realty & Brokerage because the owner, Mr. Gerry Yangyang, is a humble and good person.
At the start, when sir Gerry gave me a chance to become his agent, it was not my full-time job. At the time, I was working as an engineer for a multinational company. But I had an ambitious goal: after five years, I need to have my own house, my own car and a stable income. At first, it was very tough–working and handling concerns of more than 100 people under my supervision in my previous company while I had to accommodate a lot of calls connected to my online marketing of real estate.
At first, I was ashamed to show that I was selling properties part-time while working full-time as part of the company management with a dream to be a company manager at 28. I continued working and offering houses to my circle of friends and relatives. Within six months, I sold a lot. It was a fun experience, despite my tardiness, undertime, and absences in my previous company. I was thankful to the company president for being understanding.
Sir Gerry would call me up to remind me to get my commission and I would put them all in my bank account. In a short period of time, I accumulated P300,000. This pushed me to quit my job. It was a risk. My thoughts were, “What if I fail? What if it doesn’t work for me after a year?” But nobody can stop me from achieving my goals. Four years later, with God’s mercy, I’m now working on another set of goals.
I will always be grateful to my mentor, sir Gerry, for the opportunity. To my team, just enjoy the opportunity. God will provide if we will work for it. God bless us all.
