Colliers’ Real Estate Management Services (REMS) has been recently appointed by NorthPine Land Inc. as exclusive Village Manager of its two Pampanga developments: Montana Strands and Montana Views. These premium middle-income housing developments, both located in San Fernando, are NorthPine’s flagship projects in Central Luzon, currently one of the most exciting housing markets in the Philippines according to Colliers data.

Montana Strands, NorthPine’s newest project, is a six-hectare housing development that boasts a line-up of Retro Modern homes. Its amenities include a kids’ playground, swimming pools, a sport plaza, and a fitness park. Montana Views, on the other hand, is an 8.2-hectare housing development that features modern American country-style homes. Like Montana Strands, this housing enclave has complete amenities, including a basketball court, swimming pool, and children’s park.

NorthPine Land is formerly Jardine Land, with Hongkong Land, Metrobank, BDO, and San Miguel Properties. Formed in 1996, it sets itself apart from other property developers by focusing on strategic land-banking and the development of premium middle-income housing in the Philippines. Through the years, the company has built a reputation for developing high-quality, value-for-money residential projects.

Currently, NorthPine Land has eight horizontal residential projects in varying stages of developments: Forest Ridge in Antipolo; Greenwoods Village, Kohana Grove, Kahaya Place, and Wind Crest in Cavite; South Hampton in Laguna; the aforementioned Montana Views and Montana Strands in Pampanga; and Lexington in Pasig. The company also has commercial developments in its portfolio.

Colliers’ expertise in REMS encompasses a wide range of property types, from high-end condos, premium and Grade A office buildings, and gated communities, to industrial facilities, leisure complexes, and data centers. As of 2022, the company manages more than 90 buildings and facilities across the Philippines with a gross floor space of more than 5 million square meters. The company’s REMS expertise includes property management, facilities management, administrative and soft services, and engineering operation and maintenance services.

This year, the company successfully passed recertification audit towards an ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems Certification. The surveillance audit, conducted by TÜV Rheinland, tested Colliers’ management controls and processes, and found positive findings on business continuity plans, preventive maintenance, billing and collection risk management, and business development areas.

According to Jet Ilaga, Colliers Executive Director and Head of REMS: this recent appointment exemplifies Colliers’ diverse and esteemed expertise in property management. “We have built a solid reputation over the years for effectively managing a diverse set of properties, and our systems and processes are well equipped to handle almost any type of asset.”
