Helping buyers and sellers have a win-win situation.
This requires a lot of patience, searching and studying to arrive at the right decision. As far as the Filipino buyer is concerned, he is considered as one of the most cautious buyers in the market because he values personal relationships that lead to trust.
Ramon Ballesca Jr., founder and CEO of Hoppler, said the typical Filipino buyer will always look for that perfect house-one that's in the right location, with the right price and which serves their needs perfectly. Furthermore, a Filipino buyer will look for an entity that he can trust when he is on house hunting to ensure he get the personal service that provides him better deals and avoids getting hoodwinked by scammers.
Through Hoppler, Ballesca hopes Filipino will go to Hoppler as their 'trusted friend' or family member who can introduce buyers to hundreds of trustworthy brokers with thousands of listed properties from which they can choose their perfect home.
Moreover, he said Hoppler walks the extra mile by providing a personal touch by staying with the buyer every step of the way, ensuring a trouble-free transaction from start to finish with the buyers getting the best possible deal.
'Right now, Hoppler has a growing network of over 600 real-estate professionals, plus an affiliate marketing program that reaches an estimated 1,500 plus more real-estate professionals,' Ballesca said.
'And we intend to increase those numbers exponentially in the coming months,' he added .
Hoppler's official web site (http://www.hoppler.com.ph) and the mobile app give access to the main ecosystem where brokers, buyers and sellers initially connect, interact and ultimately close deals.
In the past 12 months, Ballesca said property seekers on Hoppler had legitimate intentions to spend a total of P38.2 billion on purchasing or leasing properties. For that amount, commissions totaling P1.7 billion would be paid out to brokers.
Hoppler raised $1.3 million (P66 million) from Frontier Digital Ventures purely for marketing listings for partner brokers in the Central Business Districts (CBDs) of Metro Manila.
Through its 'Partner Broker Program,' Hoppler aims to sustain the company's mission of linking up buyers and sellers with an online network of trustworthy real-estate professionals. Aside from expanding its broker and property network, Hoppler also supports partner brokers acquire more leads and close more deals.
Partner brokers can list properties with exclusivity on Hoppler's system on a 'first come, first served' basis. They can upload all the properties they manage whether residential or commercial without any upfront fees.
The Hoppler website makes listing and managing properties online a breeze through a listings dashboard where brokers can manage a database of uploaded and listed properties.
Brokers can even manage their lists on-the-go through the app on their smartphone. Brokers can even be notified when someone inquiries about their listed property.
'Since the Hoppler web site may be accessed globally, listed properties receive inquiries not only from the Philippines but from all over the world,' Ballesca stressed.
Hoppler only assigns a qualified lead to a broker after it goes through a screening process to provide an efficient, streamlined experience for the client. This ensures that brokers can maximize their time, get more leads, and be able to close more deals.As of October 2017, Hoppler's Partner Broker Program has come up with a total of more than 20,000 property listings in Hoppler's network and database.
'Hoppler is a company that honors local culture by ensuring that our business model creates relationships based on trust,' Ballesca stressed.
'We want to make buying and selling properties personal again-with personalized end-to-end service where we take care of people first, and then the property will follow.'
