“We later realized that at DMCI, the showrooms are not show-offs, but a teaser of greater things to expect in real units in actual homes.” 

“Stellar Place has altered the landscape of Visayas Avenue.  It is now the most prominent and the most prestigious community development that adds to the vibrancy of Visayas Avenue” 

“While contruction of Stellar Place was going on, every time we pass by along Visayas Avenue was a moment of excitement and exhilarating anticipation.  For a million times, we slowed down, rolled our car windows, held our breathes and gasped with awe seeing a new floor or any new development that was added to the construction. It was a long wait but is was worth it.  DMCI Homes delivered what it has promised.”

–  Caesar R. Vallejos (Stellar Place),  First Place, Adult Category

“ I’d like to thank this place for leading me to a friend for life. The very essence of the homes and people put together, created peace and harmony within all our hearts. DMCI homes had that special component that made your everyday life a little whimsical. Acacia was a place where memories were made to be remembered, it’s like living in your own fairytale, hold that key to your home and it would be the very first “once upon a time” and treasure it and believe me you will, have a happy ending.”

Gabrielle Kearsten T. Justo (Mahogany Place 3), First Place, Kids Category


“ During my elementary days in the 80’s, my father who was a part time agent would always bring me with him to their office located in a mixed residential & commercial condominium building.  I would always wander by the poolside and watched longingly at the residents frolicking in their very own condominium swimming pool.  I would always wish to be with them and join them.  There was even a time when I devised a plan to ‘accidentally’ slip just so I would end up in the pool; I never had the courage to do it though. And so sometime during those numerous times that I would be there, a childhood dream that would shape me was born… I promised myself that someday, I would live in a condominium with its own pool and swim whenever I want, how long I want. “

– Josefina Arlene Tena-Antonio (Dansalan Gardens Condominiums), Second Place, Adult Category

“ During our first few months, my family was always having weekend bonding activities in the pool area.  On some weekends, we were even joined by friends and relatives.  Our cousins often beg their parents to stay longer because they also love our playground, clubhouse and swimming pools.  Our older relatives would always say that I improved my swimming skills and I owe this to my frequent visit, play and sometimes practice in the pool.  I was even one of those representatives of Cedar Crest in the swimming competition joined by all DMCI projects held at Riverfront Residences a few years ago.  It was really fun!  But I would always hear my Mom sharing to friends that I became healthier with my swimming and other outdoor activities so seldom having cough and colds.  I somewhat agree with my Mom because from the time we transferred to Cedar, my younger brother and I were never hospitalized.  “

“ Dmci homes “mayfield park” has been my shelter my sanctuary when I was grieving for the loss its a place where I found peace of mind and a place where I get to know more and discover more about my mother which the only one treasure that I have right is not like fairy tales that has always have happy endings but its up to yourself to make the ending happily ever after.

This time im a stronger bachelor and ready to face the real world’s challenges. Having a real home and your own home and having people around you that loves you is like happy ending. Never stop believing and sometime I can say right now we just need a little faith and magic in our lives.”

Luther John dela Cruz (Mayfield Park Residences), Third Place, Adult Category

“ Well, we are planning to lease this house to some people and to let them experience what we experienced while I go for some time to study in Laguna. But, sometime in the future, six years from now, I might come back to study in Manila for college and I will come back to the loving embrace of the Vista de Lago family. I will come back to the place where my heart resides in and more happy memories will be made when I go back to my everloving home with“One Big Family”.

– Rose Guada Marie V. Manalo (Vista De Lago), Third Place, Kids Category
