Century Properties / Lying/Misrepresentation
Be VERY cautious about buying a unit from Century properties. They convinced us that it would be SO easy to flip our unit about 19 months and so we purchased a unit from Aqua Residences. Contacted them to flip unit Oct 12th and we are still no closer to getting our money back as they simply say "it seems to be hard to sell your unit". To make matters worse, we are now being told that if we want to pull out, we will get none of our money back (more than 400, 000 pesos!!! Actually more than 700, 000 as we are supposed to get 291, 000 just from appreciation but that’s just another false promise). Something sounds VERY fishy with Century Properties, folks
Mr. Adrian Sta. Catalina was just awarded "#1 sales agent" in the Century Properties office, but I wonder how many other clients he and his team have lied to. The only reason we were talked into purchasing a unit was because we were told it would be extremely easy to flip a unit. Almost 5 months later and no closer to flipping the unit. Is there no accountability in sales people being able to tell clients whatever they want in order to make a quick buck or to move up in the ranks?
One of the biggest regrets of my life thus far - being talked into buying a unit from Adrian Sta Catalina and his team because of their smooth talking. A living hell trying to flip our unit and it seems that "someone" is trying the put the more than 700, 000 pesos into their own personal pocket… So here is their strategy: when you want to flip the unit, they take months and months and hope you will pull out. Because as Mr Adrian Sta Catalina told my wife in a message on Jan 30th when we simply asked about getting our money back and possibly forgetting the huge appreciation money we were promised: "* if you discontinue or let go of the condo ( discontinue MA payments) all your payments will be forfeited po. THAT is what you sign into when you deal with Century it seems.
To make matters worse, they just wasted another 2 months pretending they cared as I went through a “complaint process” talking on the phone, sending emails and NOTHING HAS CHANGED. Of course they will say they found nothing wrong in how their agents behaved and lied. They are still giving me the old line that they are “trying to sell our unit”. DO NOT BE TRICKED INTO BUYING A UNIT FROM CENTURY! This is their latest line in an email about why I am not getting my money back even after misrepresentation and lying from their agent: "we would like to seek your kind understanding that whatever delay you might have experienced was neither done in bad faith nor was meant to deprive you of your investment.” THEY WILL DEPRIVE YOU OF YOUR INVESTMENT and then say “sorry for depriving you of your investment."
