PLDT Global, through its award-winning app, Free Bee, has teamed up with online real estate brokerage platform Hoppler, to provide Filipinos working and living overseas with more access to digital services.
With this partnership, overseas Filipinos can choose from a wide range of homes or properties for rent or sale in Metro Manila from Hoppler on the "What's the Buzz?" section of the Free Bee app.

“Our kababayans abroad aspire to provide the best life for their families back in the Philippines, particularly those who are looking to buy properties either for their own use, or for investment. Through this partnership, we can provide them with more digital services to help make their lives a little bit better,” said Albert Villa-Real, Chief Commercial Officer at PLDT Global.
“We are really excited to work with PLDT Global and tap its vast network to reach more Filipinos abroad and help them with their property search for their families back home. I also believe that associating ourselves with this brand will speak volumes in terms of our credibility as an online platform for real estate,” said Ramon Ballesca, Jr., Chief Executive Officer at Hoppler.
