During the late 90’s, Thrace started out as a Property Consultant for Gocheco Brothers Realty Corp. He marketed house and lot properties in Tagaytay and also sold various condominium units in Binondo. It was here where he was first exposed to the stresses of meeting sales quotas and generating continuous clients for the company. Though there is constant demand to perform, Thrace was able to adapt to the pressure. This started his fruitful career in real estate.
On January 2000, Thrace transferred to Robinsons Land Corporation’s High Rise Division. As an Account Manager, he marketed condominiums and other high end projects of Robinsons. Thrace was very active in participating in various client generating activities and company sponsored events. He was recognized as someone who goes the extra mile to assist buyers not only during the sales transactions but also in helping them complete post sale requirements.
Because of his continuous success in meeting quarterly performance standards, and not mentioning his excellent customer satisfaction attitude, Thrace was promoted to Sales Manager. Thrace soon handled seven to ten account managers and a number of real estate brokers. He helped them perform and generate sales to achieve company set targets. He developed his account managers thru hands on and school trainings to continually motivate them and develop their professionalism. Under his supervision, he instilled the values of exceptional customer serviced, allowing them to become topnotch agents themselves.
Aside from handling people, Thrace also assisted in creating marketing activities and sales strategies. He supervised programs such as booth manning, saturation drives, and corporate presentations. It was during this time that he received numerous citations and awards. Throughout his stay, Thrace was considered as one of the top performers of RLC’s High Rise Division. He was renowned for his professionalism, outstanding work ethics, and exceptional management style.
