Residents share their experiences

LAPU-LAPU CITY (Jan. 3, 2017) — Residents in subdivisions at Johndorf Communities in Calawisan, this city have affirmed that they have made “the right move” in choosing a home for their families.

They appreciated living in a vibrant gated township where they relatively know their neighbors and that they would not worry about their children going out of their homes to play.

“I’m happy that (my kids) can run and play outside (the house, yet) inside a safe community that I don’t have to worry where they are,” quipped Yvonne Casuco, a homeowner at Astana, a subdivision of 413 townhouses.

Before moving to Astana, Casuco would recall that her children would just stay inside their apartment and watch TV all day, feeling like they have had been locked up.

A single mom, Jennelyn Paglinawan also wanted a peaceful neighborhood, safe for her daughter as she grows up.

“My friend referred me to Johndorf. As I saw the unit and the development, I decided to get it right away,” she said, as she noted that processing was relatively fast.

“We wanted to know how it was like to live in our home. Soon enough, we thought we were right in choosing Johndorf,” she said.

First Christmas

A wife of an OFW moved into Astana in December 2016 and had her first Christmas without her husband who could not leave work overseas.

Instead of celebrating it alone with her daughter, “our neighbors welcomed us with open arms. We’re so happy to be part of this (Astana) community,” said Leizel Tablazon.

A young couple who migrated from Mindanao for work in Mactan thought Johndorf Communities was a blessing as it had the factors they were looking for in a decent community, particularly at Navona that is planned for 431 townhouses.

Being accessible to both work and leisure, the working wife Nathalie Pormento said “(this place is indeed) perfect for new families like ours.”

Astana and Navona are a part of the township developed by Johndorf Ventures Corp. (JVC) in Calawisan after Hanniyah II and II. A fifth subdivision of townhouses called Evissa will soon be launched here.

Astana has long been sold out, while the company is about to complete the sale of a few remaining townhouses at Navona, according to Michele D. Chiu–Bacungan, the sales and marketing manager.

Always there

The township is managed by a property administrator tasked to address and respond to the needs of homeowners, while implementing rules without fear or favor yet with tact and patience.

“As property administrator, making sure everyone’s happy is very fulfilling,” quipped Junrey Gentapa, adding “we make sure we are always there for them.”

He also oversees the township’s security led by SG Rino who is relentless in monitoring every nook and corner in Johndorf Communities.

“I wouldn’t mind if I needed to endure the tropical heat when roving for as long as everyone is safe and at peace,” Rino shared.

One may contact an accredited broker or visit the Johndorf office at the 14th floor of Ayala Life – FGU Center across Ayala Center Cebu for inquiries, or find needed information on Facebook or at http://www.johndorfventures.com.ph.
