Even before the word ‘Blog’ was coined in the late 90’s, our featured broker has already been sending articles (blogs) to his clients and network of practitioners. Living in the US and being exposed to the American system of real estate brokerage, his style was highly appreciated by his upscale clientele. Being one of the early adopters of the internet and websites, he used this advantage not only to have a wider reach but also to establish his position as a credible authority in this professional practice.
His website, www.robertgsarmiento.com is primarily about the Philippine Real Estate market, news, updated real estate laws by the governing agencies, property values, actual case experiences and vital information pertaining to our precious environment. His company, Robert G Sarmiento Realty, is a full line brokerage firm which specializes on sales and rentals of residential, commercial and industrial properties primarily in the Philippines.
Their mission is primarily to enhance the lives of Real Estate Practitioners and Investors. The firm also caters to both foreign and local medium to large business enterprises for their industrial and commercial property requirement, business process outsourcing companies, multi-national companies in need of office spaces and the leisure market catering to high end resort villas and upscale residential houses / lots and condominiums.
In addition, his company also offers on going and pre-selling projects ( residential and commercial condominiums, residential subdivisions, commercial lots, leisure projects, house and lots, townhouses, office spaces and industrial lots ) of select major developers and their subsidiaries with good history of successful development and unquestioned credibility.
In 2018, he organized an informal group of some of the “best of the best” licensed Brokers where these veteran professionals unselfishly exchange information, best practices, unusual experiences in transactions and the latest happenings in real estate. The members of this group are literally having a ‘CPD’ everyday through their Viber chat group.
Aside from being one of the most prolific Property Brokers in Metro Manila, Robert is also a PRC Accredited Lecturer and regularly shares his valuable knowledge in seminars, organized by different organizations. One of the real professionals that make this real estate practice, more respectable.
