It is a very exciting time for us. We are purchasing a brand new Mitsubishi Montero to use as a Car Service to our guests. This will be available by January 2018.
Our Shore units will also be ready by January 2018. We are currently putting together our plans and designs and we couldn't be more excited. It is finally happening !
We are very excited. Our two units at Shore Residences are almost done. We learned so much this past year and a half managing our Shell Residences units and we can only improve. We cannot be happier with the results. We had happy clients
We recently performed a major maintenance of the units. We blocked the calendars for almost 1 week to replace/update furniture, bulbs, cabinets, including grout. We even did general cleaning which made the units looking like there were never lived in. We also make sure we have updated sheets, towels and supplies. We are doing our best to have the best condo units. Of course, we want to have happy customers that is why we have a 5-15 minute wait policy to respond to clients' inquiries.
We look forward to 2017 as we will have more units at Shore Residences.
Thank you all !

Actual unit was better than the description. It exceeded our expectations! Neighborhood is great. Safe place with nice people around. Ms. Bebot was super nice, accommodating and helpful with our needs during our stay. Walking distance to the SM Mall of Asia, Amusement Park and Sunset View by the Bay! Kids had fun at the Swimming Pool. Had a good sleep on the cozy large bed. Very clean toilet and bath area. Unit had a complete set of things/items that you may need during your stay. Highly Recommended !!! Thank you Ms. Grace!

We had great clients comments and suggestions which we mostly followed. As you can see from our booking calendar, we had a great month of May. June is also filling up really fast. The new addition to our staff Bebot has been unbelievably awesome, accepting late night check-ins and early morning check-outs. She also made sure our PLDT wifi and cable were installed in 1 week. We now have a good process in place for a very easy coordination between clients and our staff.
Truthfully, I was very nervous when I first reserved the units 5 years ago but it turned out fine. I am very excited for the 2 units to be completed at Shore Residences next year.
It was a rewarding day, indeed. There was 1 week of open slot in our May calendar for unit 1130 and someone did a booking for that week !
As we continue to learn the process of this business and at the same time improve our internal process, I am beginning to see the rewards. Of course there are sleepless nights for me because I like to be able to respond to booking inquiries within 10 mins, I think it is all worth it. I started to delegate the finance reporting to my staff in Palawan, and teach them how to do what I do. The power of delegation ! :-).
I am establishing a foundation for our future units. I am beginning to like this business of trying to be the best in accommodation and easy check-in/check-out process. So far, our customers are happy. That's all that matters.
Nothing beats the combination of great products and good customer service. Our May calendar is filling up (http://www.rentsmresidences.com/booking-calendars.html) ! I can't wait for the Shore units to be completed. Although it really keep me busy tracking everything, maintaining our website and other sites, coordinating with my wonderful staffs Ghel and Dhal, I feel great because we have happy and contented customers ! That's what everything is all about.
It feels really great that after couple of months of getting the units ready according to my standard, and creating/updating the website and posting our units in booking websites, we are finally getting lots of inquiries and bookings. I am quite happy and grateful to everyone
I am a real estate enthusiast. I have invested in few properties since I was 29 years old. I am also a certified residential appraiser in California. I love seeing vacant piece of land transform into a community. So far, I have been amazed at how SMDC did Mall of Asia Complex.
