The event was a mix of parlor games, aptly named “ banana eating contest ”, “ Stop and Go ”, “ pass the water ” and “squid games ”.

In between breaks, the guests enjoyed eating on different viands of traditional Filipino food. It’s so ironic, that the most awaited steamed rice came very late. But all in all, it was fun, food and games for everyone!

Towards the end, the 4 v 4 volleyball competition was changed to 7 v 7. All in the name of fun, the host allowed the move as it resulted in a competitive game between two teams.

While the 7 x 7 competition is ongoing, there we’re games played in the main area. Participants gyrated with a hanging banana to advance the ball towards the mark and back to the start line. It was fun as all participants we’re into winning the games.

In the end, everyone received a prize… new friendships we’re formed… and this event is a reminder that once we unite and support each other, there is no limit in our success.

Filipino Gatherings in Florida.


Our listing in Avalon Park… now under contract!

After weeks of communications with a listing service in Central Florida, the seller has decided to accept an offer.

The challenge of adding this listing to 2 different MLS ( Multiple listing services ) has put delays in our open house date. From staging, up to the schedule of the photo shoot.

The journey was met with challenges..our brokerage was needed to setup the moving vans just to get it ready for showing. From moving of the furniture and equipment of the owner.. to hiring driver to transport to Miami.

The video walk-through did not disappoint and the photos that we’re taken we’re outstanding.

Here is the link for the video…

…and the photos.

We are still accepting back up offers… Check out the official MLS listing at 16642 Deer Chase Loop.

Downsizing from Single Family Home to a Condominium in South Florida

South FL Retirement is on the Horizon.

Welcome to the Sunshine State, where the weather is sunny and the waters are blue. We find that we have been getting a lot of new residents moving from out of state who are also eager to enjoy Florida, needless to say, our office has been teeming with activity. Recently, we had a client who decided to sell their 4 bedroom home to downsize in a 55 and above community.

We worked with First International Title, who was very accommodating and answered all of our client’s questions. They made them feel at ease and made sure that we close as promptly as possible. It was a pleasure to partner with First International and deliver the best experience for our clients.

Here is a video of our clients who are on their way to their retirement journey.

Independence Day in West Palm Beach (Florida Pinay Style!)

Abba Realty LLC celebrated with Philippine-American Society’s 22nd Summer Festival to support the objectives of the organization to:

  • Promote the vivacious and colorful Philippine culture, heritage, and traditions in the Palm Beaches and the greater South Florida area.
  • Promote community involvement and charity service to mankind in the local community and around the globe
  • Provide scholarships and support to deserving Filipino high school students
  • Establish and maintain relationships through regular fellowships and social events

Our realtor, Diana Cotto, shares her first-hand experience of the event:

Our brokerage was invited a few days before the event. I met with a couple of pinoys and I enjoyed mingling with them. I was surprised by the number of small business owners and networkers are in our county. As what our company does, I try to find out and collaborate the best fit within my expertise. Right now, I am working towards new construction and residential rentals. I am fairly optimstic with my prospects and future collaborations with the crew.

I thank Ate Merci from PASI and all that I have met in a span of 2 hours. Here are some of my photos during the event:

Proudly representing Abba98 and our mission of providing homes to the Filipinos who want to live in Florida.
Thank you for your warm accommodation, Ate Merci.

Til our next event and Happy Independence Day, kababayans!
