Garces Real Estate Website on 2 New Domain Names | 2013-07-09
Am just happy! Finally my company's real estate website is now up and running again. To God be the Glory! Somebody took one website from me last year, God gives back two. I lost a daughter few years back, now God gives me 2 lovely intelligent daughters. I lost money from leeches and scammers, God gives it back hundred fold. I remember I lost a brother, my father and my mother, that hurts a lot, but my God gives back a handful real brotha from another motha, and parents too from different persona. I lost a family and a found a great family now! I lost friends and I gain many. That's how my God cared for me. I pray, through the blood name of Jesus Christ, that whoever wishes to pin me down, my God will still bless them the way his miracle works, to bring them back in-line to HIS rational being. I thank them, I thank my hackers, people who said my firm is down - that makes me even STRONGER! My real estate business is not down and was not been downed. It just follows a cycle, like waves, when it's at bottom, the only option is to go up again. www.GarcesRealProperty.com and www.GarcesRealEstates.com is now up and ready to serve even better to anybody who is wanting, talking and needing real estate.

A move to transfer the International Airport to Cordova and the proposed undersea Tunnel for Cebu-Mactan, V.V. | 2011-12-09
THE planned transfer of the international airport to the Municipality of Cordova will gain the support of Rep. Rachel Marguerite del Mar (Cebu City, north) and her father, former congressman Raul del Mar. This is because it will complement their proposed undersea tunnel, which the older del Mar proposed during the 13th Congress and the younger del Mar refiled last year. The undersea tunnel is aimed to ease traffic on land and to be an alternative route linking Cebu City to other areas and spur economic growth. It is planned to stretch 500 meters long.

See to Impress or See to Buy | 2009-03-12
Fake buyers, don't use us to view houses just to impress your Filipina girlfriend. Also, to our local & abroad buyers, please remind your family members/friends who act as your representative not to ask for a share for our professional fees. That's very unprofessional! If you wanna take a look at the property, please communicate with us first or the least, allow your representative to give to us your contact information so we can verify. For security purposes, we will not show the properties to your reps if that's not followed. Finally, if you wanna view houses, makes sure you are ready to buy it if you like it. There's much difference between VIEWING and be entertained for the sake of LOOKING than viewing for the sake of BUYING. We are sick and tired of being nice.

Giving Rebates & Commissions to Buyers are Unethical! | 2007-06-10
No, we don't give rebates to buyers nor allow buyers or any of his/her relatives to split our Professional Fees. That proposal is the most disgusting proposal we can ever think of. In the Philippines, everybody can be a real estate agent - a maid, an Engineer, Doctor, Lawyers or even government officials or bank managers. Everybody knows this is illegal! Only licensed real estate broker can do real estate marketing business in the Philippines. What happen if a Realtor® caught pretending to be a lawyer or a doctor? He will spend 10 to 15 years in prison for illegal practice of profession. Nevertheless, we give referral fees to whoever can refer a client to Garces Realty office & the rates shall vary depending on the extent of participation. If a buyer want a split of our Professional Fees, how about if in 3 months time, we will also split his salary or income? Also, to give additional idea, the pricing & payment terms in almost all developers in Cebu is still the same whether a buyer have or don't have real estate agents. It is disadvantageous to think that once a buyer omits the agent, he can negotiate more to the developer - that will not follow. A buyer shall gain nothing but loose something - the same price & scheme but looses a good service which can be extended FREE of charge by the agent. Aside from that, a prospective buyer will also gain nemesis out of that process.
Garces Realty Unveils and Upholds almost Forgetten Policy | 2007-06-09
Our valued clients, we valued your time as much as we valued our time. We don't intend to trip you if you are not yet decided to buy even when you are certain about the property type you are looking for & or even you like the property we are presenting. We bring you to the site because we believe you will purchase the property if it meets your specification. We maintain our policy "No buy, No tripping".
If you wish to just roam around and want to know more about Cebu, you may hire a Tour guide. Additionally, we can't trip you if your time frame to buy is 3months, 6months, next year or next few years from now as it would be useless since property status and updates are no longer the same by that time. We trip REAL decided, interested outright buyers only! Finally, we don't trip your relatives if you don't keep in touch with us FIRST. Relatives sometimes became our competitor and sometimes, keep your money or contact other real estate agent and ask for commission which is very degrading to our business. We need your cooperation on this matter. Read More..
Rationale on Processing Fees | 2007-06-08
For owners and buyers, yes we charge 10,000.00 pesos for Title processing, in addition to the standard government regulated taxes and registration fees. The fact is, FREE service is always worth what it is, but GOOD service is always never free. We can't sustain excellent service for free. The lining, the stress and the time dealing with some government offices is more tedious than our scope of work. For the benifit of everyone, our services is only limited to finding able and interested buyer, then creating a sound business environment to derive meeting of the minds between all parties. Finally, contract signing.

A reminder | 2004-01-20
- It is a total bad idea to benefit the sweat of other people. Our dear competitors, we can exercise a real professionalism on the business. I am calling on your attention, please refrain from copying the contents & pictures on this website.
- Dear Valued Garces Realty clients, we advice you to send the money directly to Garces Realty account or direct to the developer's or owner's account. NEVER TO ANY THIRD PARTY REPRESENTATIVE. We have just experience an unfair business practice with "Your representative" or even "your relatives" on this process. Clients also loose money because the representative never forward the money to us or to the developer's / owners office.
- Our website is not a free internet information gateway on Cebu or Philippine real estate. Therefore we spent a fortune in giving you this valuable piece of information. Please PITY us. Call or email us and recognize us as your intermediary between you and the developer or to the owners. You get the same price anyway. STRICTLY NO OVERPRICE! We don't want to hear that 2 or 3 real estate executives are claiming your sale. Very degrading! We valued customer relation and after sales service so much which put us above competition.
