Growing up in a nipa hut whose roof would leak every time it rains, one guy often saw his father make plans for a 2-story house with a terrace. When he finally had a job, he made sure to build that dream house for his dad even if his coworkers advised him against it!
RanDy N. Oliverio shared the inspiring story of how he managed to build that dream house for his dad, despite colleagues telling him that a house is not a wise investment because you can’t get any return on investment (ROI) from the building.
They told him to start a business instead – but this young man, seeing his parents’ smiles of happiness is far better than any amount of ROI he could ever receive!
On his Facebook page, Oliverio shares that he hails from San Antonio, Northern Samar, but is now based in Manila and working as Property Specialist at Avida Land Corp.

When his colleagues learned that he plans to build his dad’s dream house in the province, everyone tried to persuade him to use his money elsewhere.
“Dapat passive income ang mindset kasi para kang nag baon ng pera sa lupa dahil walang ROI,” he admitted, sharing that his colleagues do have a point.
However, he also knew that his dad had always dreamed of that house ever since he was a kid. Now that he is capable of making that dream a reality, Oliverio knew that he had to put off his own dreams to give way for his dad.
“Pero, pangarap talaga ng papa ko na maging two story na my terrace ang bahay namin na tinitirahan na minana pa nya sa magulang nya. bata palang ako lagi ko nakikita papa ko na gumagawa ng blueprint ng dream house nya. Siguro mga 3 beses ko sya nakita na gumagawa ng layout sa dreamhouse nya. and Praise God! ang pangarap ng papa ko noon hindi nalang sa drawing kasi naging makatotohanan na. Nakulayan din sa wakas!” he happily shared.
“God is Good talaga. Sino ang mag aakala na ang mga biruan lang namin nuon na pangarap na magkaroon ng bahay na 2nd floor na my terrace ay magiging totoo. Yung pangarap na bahay na sa papel ko lang dati nakikita ay hindi na drawing. Yung tipong kahit my bagyo hindi na ako mag woworry na maraming tulo yung bahay namin., baka basa na sila sa loob ng bahay.. baka bumagsak yung bubungan dahil marupok na..
It’s true hindi passive income ang bahay at maraming nag sasabing [email protected] investment. Pero ang makita ko ang magulang ko na masaya at maayos ang kalagayan ay higit pa sa ROI ang nakuha ko. Bago man lang ako mag settle kasi ako nalang single saming magakakapatid, at least panatag ang loob ko sa kanila.”
Now, that’s a truly inspiring story, right?
