August can never be a ghost month, because for a woman, every month, every day, every hour is a precious time for perseverance and hard work. Thus, our featured broker for August is a woman with a virtue of positivity, born at the right time and place.


My dear colleagues in the industry, please meet CRB Raissa R. Madlangbayan, an achieving woman with two distinct assets: chivalrous and gallant, being born in the Year of the Pig, and loyal and determined, being a true Capricornian. The chemistry of these virtues, which at a young age in her late 30s, made her the co-founder of the RMS Realty Inc. in November 2021, with a present address in Penthouse 2, VGP Center, Ayala Avenue Makati.


She had become the person she is now because of the character and values developed and nurtured in her during her education at the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila with the BS Psychology course.


She took advantage of various opportunities with rich imagination and sharp observations about people, especially those related to business. She began by opening a family business from 2005 to 2007, and then from 2007 to 2009, she worked as a BPO Customer Service Outbound Representative for Xcelerate Center Inc. and Sutherland. She used this as her experience and stepping stone to becoming a Property Specialist with SM Investments Corporation, Hamilo Coast–Pico De Loro, and Tagaytay Highlands (2009–2010), then with Robinsons Land Corporation (2010–2013) selling condominium units.


Armed with knowledge and skills related to real estate properties, propped up with determination, in 2013, she attended classes at the Urban Institute of Real Estate and successfully passed the Real Estate Broker Examination the following year. She engaged in resale luxury properties in high-end villages, such as McKinley Hill Village, Bel Air Village, San Lorenzo Village, Urdaneta Village, Dasmarinas Village, Forbes Park Village, and Class A condominiums in Makati and BGC to name some. At the same time, she handled the leasing of ex-pat accounts, such as ADB and other multinational companies. Supported by her tenacity and license, she stands up to be a Freelance Real Estate Broker from 2014 to 2021.


With this strong momentum in her career as a registered real estate broker, she co-founded RMS Realty Inc. in November of last year, a general brokerage company specializing in real estate leasing, resale, and pre-selling.


Now that she is a manager of what she started, she is in charge of setting the company’s objectives and plans, overseeing the entire staff, and ensuring the overall accountability of the business to shareholders and the general public.
