INTEGRITY and transparency are two of best attributes of this first-rate Cebuano Real Estate Broker.
In fact Jose Vicennte Rodriguez Cañizares lives and breath by this virtues, which he believes that every broker should possess. Being truthful and sincere to their clients at all times, is always an advantage especially now that real estate business in this corner of the world is thriving and roaring.
“I am true and transparent to my clients. Honest and truthful should be top qualities of a Real Estate Broker,” mused Cañizares.
Joevince to his friends and classmates, comes from a well-known clan who lives in the uptown area of Cebu City. He decided to leave the building designs industry, and tried to carve his name in property selling business.
“My family is into architecture, so my knowledge in architecture gives me advantage when I shifted to Real Estate brokering. I joined the Real Estate industry in 2014 and got my (broker’s) license only two years ago. Being a real estate broker is quite a challenge. You need to possess a lot of patience. Because you always get to meet mostly meticulous clients, who wanted perfection. Sometimes you get to deal with rude buyers. But this job is financially rewarding and fulfilling. And this is now a livelihood for me,” Cañizares continued.
One of the property that he is brokering at the moment is the much anticipated Base-Line Residences, a multi level condominium building located at Juana Osmeña St., in Cebu City, the same location of the old Cebu Landmark and the Cañizares family owned-Baseline Restaurant and Sports Complex.
Just like the old restaurant, property buyers are now lining-up to buy a unit or two at Base-Line Residences, and Joevince is already on top of the situation.
What convinced him to go full time Real Estate Broker was when he sold a condominium unit in Manila in 2014. From thereon, he was unstoppable as Joevince periodically sell condo units and other properties from anywhere in the country.
However, Joevince does not restrict himself to selling condominium units alone, he actually cater to whatever his client’s need.
“Real Estate is already a big market. I don’t restrict myself just to condominium units, I am open to whatever my client needs. House and lot, warehouse, farm and commercial lots, I even engaged in property rentals,” he answered.
According to Joevince, Cebu market for now has already exceeded expectations.
The market has started to diversify, and have became a broker’s haven because many multinational companies has considered or are already putting up branches in Cebu.
Property turnover is also brisk and fast. Acquiring and reselling properties can take as fast as two weeks.
“Aside from patience, this business also needs a lot of anticipations. You need to know the forecast and you need to be on alert to the latest trends. You must be professional in dealing with clients and deal with rejections better. Be a sport,” he stressed.
Joevince also admitted that his hobbies and extra curricular activities gave him edge over his competitors.
He is an exemplary basketball player. He just lead his team Batch 2000 to the championship title in Sacred Heart School-Ateneo Alumni Basketball Athletic Association (SHAABAA) Summer League 2019, where he also won the Season and the Finals Most Valuable Player (MVP) awards.
Aside from basketball, Joevince also played golf, joined running competitions, do hiking and mountain trekking which did not only made him fit physically but also used it as a marketing tool for his business.
“I also get into physical activities such basketball, golf, running, hiking and I also love to socialize with other people. I also use this hobbies and extra curricular activities as a marketing tool in my business,” Joevince claimed.
As to his advise to prospective home buyers, Joevince suggested to tap a broker who is honest and transparent. And always be on lookout for the latest trend and nearest opportunity.
