Written by: Ness Albito
As the pandemic did massive twists in our daily lives and brought the new normal to us, one of its upsides was the swift digital transformation. In a snap, all of us had the urge to adapt to virtual technologies. With that, Lumina Homes steps up to the real estate industry by going all-digital, from conducting seminars to teleconferencing platforms up to the annual celebration of Gawad Lumina.
Gawad Lumina is the annual awarding of top sales performers for the year. This year might be different, but it marked the 8th year of Lumina Homes as a significant and meaningful one. In celebration of its 8th year, Lumina held the 1st Online Recognition of Gawad Lumina and conducted the "2nd Kumustahan sa Bayan ni Juan" last August 24, 2020. The program started by showing famous festivals in the Philippines, which are similarly bright and colorful, like the 8mazing milestones of Lumina Homes through the years.

As Lumina Homes celebrates its 8th year in the real estate industry, Lumina also salutes each Lumina partner network's journey and success. Sellers testimony about Lumina Homes are the following:
"I used to sell in other developers, pero Lumina lang ang nag-offer ng sales-related training as well as seminars for self-development."
Risa Del Rosario, Sales Manager of Sun Riser Realty, said.
Maria Lourdes Ladao, Sales Manager of Abellar Realty, also shared that, "Maipagmamalaki ko ang Lumina dahil maganda ang location. Mabilis mag-construct pero durable at of good quality ang mga bahay. At hindi mahirap ibenta dahil kilala na ng karamihan."
"I wish Lumina will have more projects for us to survive. Kung wala ang Lumina, I don't know how I would ever survive financially during the pandemic in this country," said by Generosa Tagaro, Property Consultant of Filipino Homes.
Corazon Azores Rose, Sales Manager of Wyndel Rose Realty, tells her story about Lumina Homes, "Simula ng Lumina, dito ako nagkaroon ng ipon. Napagtapos ko lahat ng mga anak ko." She also shared that even being based in Quezon, her network expanded from Luzon to Mindanao with Lumina's nationwide presence. Setting as an example also inspired her teammates to stay with Lumina Homes as well.
"Na-achieve ko yung magkaroon ako ng sarili kong bahay. Naka-invest din ako ng sariling sasakyan na ginagamit ko na rin sa site tripping for Lumina Homes. At higit sa lahat, nagkaroon ako ng income freedom." Eden Claire Canada, Sales Manager of Leuterio Realty and Brokerage, said.
Marlou Angelo Hinay, Sales Manager of Filipino Homes, said, "5 to 10 years from now, will I still be with Lumina? Definitely yes! Because Lumina Homes Butuan is the best project in our area, and the marketing staffs are very approachable. They also offer the most affordable house and lot in the country today."
"Thank you for making us part of your noble mission of helping every Filipino family achieve their dream of owning a home through affordable housing." Mr. and Mrs. Marian & Ronald Catedral, Sales Manager and Broker of Property Pro, shared their thoughts about Lumina Homes. The power couple also said that "We are in a relationship with Lumina for almost six years now, and it is a wonderful experience, and we will choose to sell Lumina, again and again. And the real happiness comes after knowing that we can help someone achieve their dream home through Lumina."
