People encounter problems and challenges when buying real estate, more so with foreclosed properties.

I encountered a lot of those problems when I started investing in foreclosed properties myself. Thanks to patience and a lot of help from mentors and friends, I was able to overcome the challenges I encountered.

To help other beginning real estate investors, I started the blog ForeclosurePhilippines.com in 2008 to share my lessons learned and how to overcome challenges people face with foreclosed real estate investing in the Philippines.

I also used the blog as a tool to help me compile all foreclosed property listings I found for easy reference. I actually found my first successful real estate deal in a listing I shared on the blog!

Little did I know that the blog will be a big help to others who are just starting with real estate because of what I was sharing

Call me a nerd, but I really like to make things work, I document what works and what doesn't... and this is exactly what I've been doing with real estate, which I publish on the blog.

After several successful deals, I was able to quit my job as the I.T. Manager of a multinational company to focus on real estate full-time, and I have been documenting my real estate journey ever since.

It is my hope that by sharing what I have learned, I will be able to help guide fellow real estate investors out there who are on the same real estate investing journey.

I am also a PRC licensed Real Estate Broker with REB License # 3194.
