Ask anyone to describe the perfect Pinoy home and you’ll probably get answers related to its size, style, and function for the whole family. But if you ask a Kapamilya, there’s a good chance that this dream house is one where dreams literally come true. To be more specific, it’s big, blue and yellow, and home to the longest-running reality show in the country: Pinoy Big Brother.
This year, Filipinos all over the world get a brand-new chance at making their dreams come true as Suntrust Properties, Inc. partners with PBB for “Pinoy Big Brother Otso”, the show’s much-anticipated 8th season. Much like the iconic blue and yellow house that has been instrumental in opening many doors for PBB housemates for 13 years, Suntrust Properties Inc. prides itself as a company that inspires Filipinos to achieve their dreams. With this exciting new partnership, viewers are bound to see that the Filipino dream of owning a home is definitely easy to achieve.
For over 20 years, Suntrust Properties, Inc. has been a frontrunner in building quality homes for the Filipino family. As the official home of “Pinoy Big Brother Otso”, the stellar developer remains committed to creating top-of-the-line houses at affordable prices. With a client-centered approach that reminds one of how Big Brother cares for the PBB housemates, Suntrust Properties, Inc. ensures that each house will address the needs of any potential homeowner. Much like the Pinoy Big Brother house, the company’s projects also aim to become places that value the essence of friendship and family.
According to Atty. Harrison Paltongan, President of Suntrust Properties, Inc., the company decided to team up with PBB not just for its international success and reach as a program, but for their shared vision for the Suntrust market and Filipinos everywere. “We carry the same advocacy, which is particularly translating dreams into reality. I am amazed at how this house came to be and at how they interviewed thousands of people...how they were able to teach them how to dream,” he says. “Although a few will be left in the end, at least along the way, those who failed will learn to dream and perhaps achieve their dreams in other facets, so this house represents those dreams.”
As a platform for Filipino dreamers who wish to transfom their lives, Pinoy Big Brother has been known as the stepping stone to success for former housemates like Kim Chiu, James Reid, Melai Cantiveros, and Maymay Entrata, who have all gone on to become some of the country’s biggest stars. This season, ABS-CBN TV Production Head Laurenti Dyogi credits Suntrust Properties, Inc. for making a valuable contribution to the exciting journey of the new “Pinoy Big Brother Otso” housemates.
“It’s a lucky partnership because the house is very different from the outside. Although we retain the colors blue and yellow, they’re in different shades,” he states, noting the use of brighter Suntrust colors. “The house is really expansive now. It’s bigger, and thank you to Suntrust that we are able to do that expansion and renovation. I think this season, we will be able to transform more lives.”
The legendary blue and yellow house opens its doors once again to countless Filipino dreamers this November as “Pinoy Big Brother Otso” kicks off with a brand-new set of housemates and with the help of Suntrust Properties Inc., it’s safe to say that a lot of dreams will definitely come true.
