Real estate sales for the quarter rose by  17 percent to P9.4 billion, driven by the higher completion rate of its projects.

Leasing revenues likewise grew by 18 percent to P4.4 billion with the growth led by the performance of the mall segment.

Demand continues to grow, and we are committed to capturing new opportunities as we strive to deliver meaningful value to our stakeholders,” said Monica Salomon, president of GERI.

Real estate sales rose to P1.7 billion, up 63 percent from last year’s P1 billion as a result of higher construction completion. Reservation sales, likewise, grew by 45 percent to P5.8 billion.
