REAL ESTATE DEVELOPMENT COMPANY Sta. Lucia Group has been around for a while: 47 years in fact. Over that time, it has built a portfolio of over 100,000-plus strong clients, comprising families, overseas Filipino workers, foreign investors, retirees, young urban professionals and newly married couples. In 2007, the company changed its corporate name from Zipporah Mining and Industrial Corporation to its present name to better reflect its business interests, and was listed on the Philippines stock exchange as Sta. Lucia Land Inc. (SLI).

SLI has built horizontal and vertical properties across the country including residential developments, commercial projects such as office spaces, industrial developments, schools, tourism and leisure assets, and retail and mall developments, like the Sta. Lucia Mall in Cainta, Rizal.

Producing quality projects is a given, but excellent service through personalised, good customer relations is a must at SLI, and it has paid off well – increasing business and its gross revenues. Customer concerns are readily addressed by trained frontline customer service officers.

However, SLI is not resting on its laurels. Improved turnaround time to answer customer inquiries is a top priority for the company in the coming year. It will achieve this goal by further training its personnel to enhance their customer service skills, such as listening closely with an empathetic ear to customers, and taking on board any feedback and suggestions for possible customer service improvements.
