The rapid progression of the real estate businesses recently in the Philippines is really undeniable and it shows no signs of stopping, thanks to the influx of demands from recovering from the pandemic’s effect. From simple resiliency to the actual flourishing of the industry, real estate developers, firms, and agents work not just to protect their own businesses, but also the right process between the parties involved.

Listed below are the following remarkable real estate and property developers within the country that are surely deemed to be the most popular ones and are already proven to do exemplary service within the industry.
Anywhere you would check, it is already guaranteed that Ayala Land, Inc. would take the first place in the popularity agenda, for good reason, of course. Being one of the biggest real estate developers in the Philippines and thriving independently for over a century and a half, Ayala has established its significance within the business and received the “Most Outstanding Developer” award at the Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development (DHSUD) Region 4A Gawad Parangal awards last January 17, 2022.
Ayala highly showed its significance through its fundamental participation in building the famous business district in Makati, Bonifacio Global City. It is also recognized through its commercial properties the Trinoma, Glorietta Malls, and McKinley Exchange. They also have five recognized residential brands, which are Ayala Land Premier, Alveo, Amaia, Avida, and BellaVita.
With multiple current projects that they are in the process of as of the moment, Megaworld Corporation is a noteworthy addition to the list as it gave way for BPO companies to establish their own businesses in Eastwood City in Quezon City. Megaworld Corporation initially prioritized real estate development, leasing, and marketing, owning a subsidiary Global Estate Resorts, Inc., whose strength lies in developing hotels and resorts.
Megaworld Corporation also bagged the Best Developer Award back in 201 and 2017, which strengthens its legacy as a real estate developer. They also received 25 nominations at the PropertyGuru Philippines Property Awards in 2017. As mentioned, they have multiple current projects; some of these are the Alabang West House and Lot Las Pinas, Pine Crest Condominium, and Boracay New Coast Condominium.
I’m sure all of us have seen SM malls in cities that we often travel to and even got inside one just once in our lives as Filipinos. As SM Prime Holdings is responsible for forming a Filipino ‘malling’ experience through its famous commercial shopping centers. Currently counting 79 malls across the country and 25 more schedules, as well as 6 built malls in China, SM Prime Holdings sure does deserve to be included within this list.
Beyond this, SM Prime Holdings also owns and manages multiple mixed-use residential properties and condominiums; as to date, they already have 74 residential projects, 12 office buildings, and 16 hotels and convention centers. Its built projects include Fame Residences in Mandaluyong, Coast Residences in Manila Bay, and Air Residences in Makati. They also have projects in Hamilo Coast and Tagaytay Highlands. Truly a highly established business in the real estate industry.
Also known as DMCI Project Developers, Inc., DMCI Homes is the real estate and development branch of DMCI Holdings that specializes in constructing residential properties as well as condominiums. Philippine Stock Exchange Plaza is one of their known developed properties, as they manage residences, casinos, and hotels that are scattered within the country.
They have their latest residential development, Allegra Garden Place in Pasig City, which is inspired by Moroccan theme architecture. The project is placed in an area bordering Bonifacio Global City and Ortigas, which is considered a really good place as both the cities mentioned are business districts in the Philippines and contain high accessibility to enterprises and entertainment. Some of their other projects also include Brixton Place in Pasig City, The Celandine, Infina Towers, Viera Residences in Quezon City, and Torre de Manila in Manila.
Filinvest Land has begun developing properties for over 70 years already, as their main lines of operation lie between real estate development, management, and leasing. Filinvest Land, Inc. is a subsidiary of the Filinvest Development Corporation and is also considered one of the oldest real estate developers in the Philippines as it was founded in 1955, yet despite its longevity in the industry, it is undeniable that they are still thriving in real estate development through its residential and commercial communities.
Some of its known properties include Bulacan Alta Vida House & Lot, Maui Oasis Condominium in Manila, Mission Hills in Antipolo, and The Amalfi at City di Mare Condominium in Cebu. They are also considered to practice their resiliency in their business as well as their regard and attention towards other Filipinos amidst the pandemic. Focused on giving help to the marginalized sector within the country and those who are deeply affected by natural disasters, Filinvest Land, Inc., gave back to Filipinos by conjuring a disaster relief program which they named “Pusong Filinvest”.
Initially known as “Federal Homes” and founded in 1972, Federal Land, Inc. is the developer behind the Tytana Plaza in Metro Manila and Mandarin Mansion in Makati City, which further provides residency and caters to the Filipino-Chinese community that is usually bound in Binondo, Manila. Their specialties include mixed-use commercial condominiums, houses and lots, malls, hotels, and townships.
Later on, it developed various properties in the Philippines that are both residential and commercial properties. Some of these properties include the Grand Hyatt in Manila, the GT Tower International, and Marco Polo Plaza & Residence in Cebu. Federal Land, Inc. also recently got into an alliance with Nomura Real Estate Development, a Japanese real estate developer located in Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo in Japan.
“Your Dream, Our Foundation”; is the tagline that Robinsons Land Corporation has operated with since its incorporation in the 1980s, and sure enough, they did stay true to their words. They also earned multiple awards in PropertyGuru Property Awards back in 2017: Special Recognition in Sustainable Development, Best Retail Development, and Best Residential Interior Design. Their president, Frederick D. Go, also received an award for having the Real Estate Personality of the Year. In the 9th 9th PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards, they once again received an award, which is the “Best Mega Mixed-Use Architectural Design” for the structure of The Magnolia Residences in Robinsons Magnolia Town Center in New Manila, Quezon City.
Their projects specialize in mixed-use properties, office buildings, and residential condominiums. Another thing worth highlighting is the fact that they include socialized housing projects in urban areas and different cities nationwide. Listed under their lists of projects are Bloomfields Cagayan de Oro House and Lot, Condominium Escalades at Avenue in Quezon City, and One Gateway Place Condominium in Mandaluyong.
Vista Land & Lifescapes was incorporated back in 2007, immediately being included in the list as its focus on the market was definitely very effective. As the property firm caters to both the luxury and the affordable market segments, Filipinos are highly enticed by the offers which earned the company a lot of investments. One of its most successful brands and the one everybody in the country has heard about is Camella Homes, which created multiple communities in different cities and provinces in the country.
Besides producing residential subdivisions, they also produce housing areas and spaces as well as condominium units. They also own 88.34% of Starmalls Inc. which handles and manages retail malls and commercial areas within the Philippines. Some of their projects listed include Avant at the Fort at Fort Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Camella Condo Homes in Katipunan, Quezon City, and The Vista Plumeria Condominium in Manila.
There are a lot more real estate developers that provided so much in the progress of real estate in the Philippines such as Shang Properties, Inc. which owns the One Shangri-La Place in Ortigas and The Rise in Makati, and Rockwell Land which boasts The Balmori Suites that is soon appearing along Hidalgo Drive in Makati City.
Regardless of those that are and are not included in the list, it is no denying that the real estate business continues to cater wall to the demands, not just the Filipinos or those within the Philippines, but also the foreign investors that are highly thrilled to include themselves in such a rich and flourishing business economy that the Philippines are developing. This just proves that Filipinos and the word “success” can also go hand in hand.
