Realtor helping Filipinos abroad to go back home ‘free and rich’


For some overseas Filipino workers, no other investment yields as great a return as the investment in properties. Maynard Cajayon Portugal, for over a decade, has been working at Filinvest International to help Filipinos abroad to have property investment that gives them passive income while they are working overseas.

Portugal, a native Batangueno, went abroad since 1990. His first overseas stint was in Italy where he worked as a banker for 15 years until he became a resident of the south-central European country. Still based in Italy, he transferred from the banking industry to the real estate industry and finally joined Filinvest International as a sales manager in Rome. A year after getting the regional sales manager promotion, he was assigned in Paris, France while handling and traveling to areas like Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, and Monaco.

In 2013, Portugal set foot in Dubai as the country head of the same company. His main job in the country is to further promote the real estate business of one of the leading developers in the Philippines—Filinvest Land Inc. For the past six years, his team was chosen as the top seller globally for two times.

After graduating from college, he worked as a civil engineer for six months. “I have noticed that my income was not enough to help my family in sending my siblings to school,” he said.

As he’s involved with the advocacy of Free and Rich Revolutions (Frich Revo) to empower Filipinos to be free and rich, they are also giving free seminars and world-class training to Filipinos abroad and assist them to find wise investments back home.

“What I like most in my current work is that the advocacy of our company to help all OFWs to go back to the Philippines free and rich,” he added.

Portugal said that when he’s ready to go back to the Philippines, he will stay with his family and will look after their rental business and continue his advocacy of their company.
