Lumina Homes Recognized as Top Developer by Pag IBIG

In a country where real estate has thrived for the past decade, particularly in the luxury residential and commercial property categories, one real estate developer, Prima Casa Land & Houses, Inc.'s Lumina Homes, ensures that no Filipino family is left behind.


According to members of the Subdivision and Housing Developers Association, Inc. (SHDA), the backlog currently stands at 3.9 million units which could climb to 6.5 million by 2030 if the problem is not addressed.


Lumina realized the need in the year 2012 and has since established over 50 house and lot projects across the country – with more on the way – to house and assist thousands of Filipinos in need of affordable housing.


At the 2019 Chairman's Report held at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) in Pasay City, last Feb. 7, 2020, Lumina was recently recognized by Pag-IBIG Fund as the "Top 1 Developer" among its accredited real estate developers association in terms of housing loans takeout and loan value for 2019.

Aside from that, Lumina Homes also received a special award as the "most number of Pag-IBIG Fund and housing loan borrowers served" for 2019.


Pag-IBIG Fund awards its service partners, developers, and companies who contribute to the organization's pursuit of affordable homes for every Filipino family in support of the Shelter Program of the National Government through the Building Adequate, Livable, Affordable, and Inclusive (BALAI) Filipino Community Program.


Lumina President and COO Estrellita S. Tan gave her sincerest gratitude to Pag-IBIG Fund for listening to industry stakeholders and identifying solutions to resolve concerns and issues through timely and relevant initiatives to address the growing housing backlog and contributing to rural development.

We look forward to our continuing partnership and better linkage to further strengthen the industry," she says, adding that is excited for the full implementation of Virtual Pag-IBIG under the leadership of its president, Mr. Acmad Moti.


She also said the Pag-IBIG Fund gives the real estate and housing industry great confidence to aggressively expand its market across the country while fulfilling its commitment to building affordable communities to provide each Filipino a home they can call their own. She also added that as the leading housing developer, Lumina is looking forward to continuing its partnership and stronger association to strengthen the industry.
