Magician Alvher Luna and his new DMCI condo unit

Hard work and a weave of magic pay off for millennial condo dweller

There’s no feeling more magical as the moment you have reached your life’s aspirations like getting your dream home.

It’s the same feeling, 28-year-old Alvher Luna experienced the first time he set foot in his family’s two-bedroom condominium unit at DMCI Homes’ Levina Place in Pasig City in July last year.

Though he has a regular job, Luna did shows as professional magician on the side to save and help his mother finance their dream of moving to a place of their own since they have been staying in his grandparents’ house in Barangay Kalawaan, Pasig since he was born.

And just like in the world of magic, anything is possible when one is armed with hard work and determination.

Encouraged by his wife Mary Joy, Luna looked for opportunities in kiddie parties, corporate events and mall shows on weekends. 

Noong bata ako hilig ko na talaga yung pagma-magic. So noon pa lang panahon nila David Copperfield, nanonood na ako sa kanila. Then noong 12 ako, nag-try akong mag-perform as a clown,” shared Luna who has mastered an array of tricks of the classic disappearing coin.

“Sumasama ako sa mga friends ko. Nagka-clown ako and then noong 17 years old na ako doon ako sumabak ng pagma-magician. Masaya ako kasi ngayon kumikita ako ng maganda, kahit paano natutulungan ko na yung mother ko,” he continued.

Up to now, Luna still could not believe they already have their own home and more importantly in one community made by a developer he only used to dream of before.

Sabi ko sa sarili ko noon mahirap magkaroon ng bahay diyan… Sabi ko imposibleng maabot… Hindi ko talaga inakala na makakabili kami rito sa Levina Place,” said Luna, recounting the days he would see a billboard of DMCI Homes.

Composed of just three six-story buildings – Selene, Callista, and Amalthea, the 1.4-hectare condo community in Barangay Rosario, Pasig City offers low-density condominium living that encourages closed family ties and healthy community relations.

Tahimik at very relaxing yung ambiance parang probinsya. Noong nakita namin sabi ko nga kahit saan ako lumingon maganda sa mata kaya hindi kami nag-dalawang isip na dito namin gustong tumira,” said Luna.

The property’s Asian Boutique design concept and resort-inspired amenities, on the other hand, provide residents a nurturing environment for their multi-faceted development.

Pagkalipat namin dito gusto namin agad mag-swimming kasama ang mga pamangkin. Basketball, gym lahat nandiyan. Kumpleto na, napaka-convenient,” Luna beamed in reference to Levina Place’s wide range of amenities that also include a picnic area, game area, audio-visual room, lounge area, function hall and clubhouse.

Coupled with the property's strategic proximity to key places of interest in the city, the property presents an ideal setting that constantly reinvents itself as a family haven that is a worthy venture for both end-users and investors.

Malaki yung unit. Sulit sa pera and at the same time, quality siya. Malapit pa sa work ko kaya worth it talaga,” he enthused.
