DAVAO CITY, Davao
In recent years, real estate companies, both homegrown and the so-called national players,
have established projects in Davao City brought by a vibrant real estate industry due to the recent economic boom in the city. As the city continues to grow, these real estate companies also continue to provide places to live in and work in.
Homegrown real estate company, Grupo San Pedro Realty Corp. (GSP), is one of the newest players in the industry, ready to compete against the more established ones. But its owners are unfazed.
On Saturday, May 2, the Davao City-based company launched its maiden project in the city, the Las Casas de Maria, which will rise in an eight hectare (ha.) property in Barangay Indangan, Buhangin, Davao City.

The economic housing has a total of 332 units with two house models, Maria and Cecilio.

Cecilio is a two-floor house and is pegged at P1.6 million. It has a lot area of 90 sqm. and a floor area of 60 sqm. with three bedrooms, a car park, a balcony, and two toilet and bathrooms.

Pablo said once the project starts picking up they are looking into expanding it. They have also acquired a two ha. and 4.7 ha. of land beside the project for expansion.
He said their edge over other real estate companies is that as a homegrown company, they understand the market and know what the market in Davao needs.
Pablo said future homeowners can be assured of high quality projects from GSP. He said he will be bringing in his experience and knowledge in construction after being in the industry for quite some time now.
