My name is Jay Castillo, and I started ForeclosurePhilippines.com as a tool to help me when I was still starting with investing in foreclosed properties. Little did I know that it will be a big help to others who are just starting with real estate.
My passion is with making things work, and documenting what works, what doesn't... and this is exactly what I've been doing with real estate.
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 fellow real estate investors out there who are on the same journey.
I am also a PRC licensed Real Estate Broker with REB License # 3194.
