I can still recall, about 30 years ago, when I used to stay in mom’s office almost every after a half-day class in preschool. My mom was working in a realty firm (then Bancom Realty) and I was accustomed to taking a look at a couple of miniature model houses that were well-designed and properly arranged on a long table nearby my mom’s desk. It amuses me to take out each rooftop of which I get to see the room partitions with their mini doors, beds, sofa, and all others. Those were completely a sight to behold. At that time, I must have felt that I had the experience of a lifetime to revel upon one dollhouse to another – for free.
Every now and then, I can’t help but reminisce such memory. When I was in my youth, I used to think that I was amazed by that whole idea because I enjoyed mini houses and dolls. When I was a bit older, say in my early 20’s, I came to the point of believing that the recurring recollection of that afternoon routine at my mom’s office was, after all, brought about by my special closeness with her and even with my dad (who was into house & building construction). Anything they do would spark such great interest in me. And so I thought the reason for my fondness for houses.
Just recently, though, I have full grasp of the root for this deep-seated attention for houses. It was, after all, an innate penchant for real estate. I did not pursue the practice of real estate as early as I should have, because I simply did not entertain the idea that it was for me to do. I had the notion that I am to take up management because I want to oversee a future business (although, not certain yet as to what exact business is it going be) as it should be. It never occurred to me, not until a few years back (which is just recent, I would say) that finally the desire to do what I want to be doing best has finally been ignited. Doing and selling real estate —- is for me, a passion that was molded and made stronger from an inspiration that I gathered from the people who are dear to me — parents, husband, children, siblings, in-laws and grandparents. In numerous and various ways, they have attributed to my realization of the what’s, why’s, when’s, how’s of this dream that was in slumber for quite some time.
I can go on and on sharing my connection with these people who inspired me and motivated me to take the trail that was designed for me all along.
The mere fact, that owning a real estate property — a land, a house, a commercial building, a farm, an orchard, etc, etc, has been a burning dream, then I must carry it out and make it real. As Walt Disney had said, “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue it”. I want to afford myself of this dream because I believe that our dreams are the blueprints of what God has in store for us. And, I greatly aspire that others, who share the same dream as mine, will believe that we can make things happen.
The inception of the name, Now Realty , came about from my perspective that owning big dreams such as a real estate is within reach. All we have to do, therefore, is to reach out our hands and grab hold of it.
