Bria Homes — one of the leading housing developer in the Philippines — together with ABS-CBN’s top-rating morning show Magandang Buhay, recently turned over the digital key to a brand-new house and lot to single father Ernesto Bauzon, the fourth winner in their “Magandang Buhay, Magandang Bahay” segment.

The awarding took place in a Facebook live episode last 14 August which had winner Ernesto, his daughter Agnes and Red Rosales, Bria Homes president and chief operating officer, joining Magandang Buhay hosts Jolina Magdangal, Melay Cantiveros-Francisco, and Karla Estrada in a conference call.

Magandang Buhay initially disclosed Bauzon as winner of a Bria home in its 25 December 2019 episode, saying that Bauzon was chosen for his dedication and love for his three children.

But the awarding of the Bauzons’ new home was suddenly put off when lockdown and quarantine measures due to the pandemic were enforced. Now, Bria Homes is finally ready and waiting for them to move in.

The tale of how the widowed father raised his children singlehandedly for decades touched the hearts of many viewers and served to inspire them.

Upon submitting Bauzon’s story to the “Magandang Buhay, Magandang Bahay” segment, his daughter Agnes wistfully related why she thought her father deserved to win the brand-new Bria home.

Bauzon also thanked Bria Homes and Magandang Buhay for choosing their family as their fourth house-and-lot winner.

In the live Facebook episode, Rosales presented a ‘digital key’ to their new home in Bria Homes Pampanga, an Elena end-unit model with a floor area of 22 square meters and a lot area of 54 square meters.

According to Rosales, the Bauzon family can move into their new Bria home in Pampanga, as soon as the current situation and quarantine protocols allow them to and assured the Bauzons that their new home is located in a safe and secure community, with facilities such as guarded entrance and exits, perimeter fences, and 24/7 CCTV coverage.

Homeowners of Bria Homes Pampanga also enjoy recreational amenities like a park, a spacious playground, and a covered multi-purpose center and the Bauzons will have access to schools, hospitals, churches, retail establishments and major roads and highways.

Rosales expressed his good wishes for every Filipino family as he holds on to Bria’s vision of helping ordinary Filipinos and solving the housing problem in the country.
