Emma Imperial: Getting to Know the Iconic Woman Behind Imperial Homes’ Success

Emma Imperial

Everyone dreams of running their own company. Some people want to be their own bosses, while others stumble upon a business opportunity that isn’t currently available in the market. While there could be numerous reasons why anyone would start their own business, they all have one common characteristic – they all provide the chance to finally build on your own dreams instead of someone else’s. And that’s exactly what happened to Emma Imperial.

Emma Imperial is the President and CEO of Imperial Homes Group of Companies. While she didn’t start holding this position until the passing of her husband, she has always been passionate about the real estate industry. With over 30 years of experience, Emma has gotten to where she is, not just due to her skills, but also due to her dedication and positive outlook in life.

Most real estate companies focus their efforts on big developments that will rake in the most profit. However, Emma decided to prioritize low-cost housing projects that will provide more affordable housing opportunities for lower income earners. While it can be tempting to shift priorities to projects with bigger margins, Emma Imperial has stood steadfast in her mission to develop cost-effective homes for all Filipinos.

Imperial Homes Corporation can credit their much of their success to the courage and determination of their leader. Emma has not only been able to set up numerous low-cost communities, but she has also improved and disrupted the low-cost housing segment with her bold ideas and innovative solutions.

Just 5 years ago, Emma set her heart on developing the first mass housing community in the Philippines to be powered by solar energy. Via Verde, located in Sto. Tomas, Batangas, launched in early 2015 with the objective to deliver quality affordable homes, while giving residents access to renewable energy that could significantly decrease their electricity bills and their impact on the environment.

The project was so successful that it was recognized by the World Bank-International Finance Corporation, the Financial Times and International Finance Corporation (IFC), and received the World Bank’s EDGE Certificate for Green Building – the first certificate given to a mass housing developer in the country.

Emma has proven that owning and running a business is anything but easy. It’s well worth it – but it’s definitely not easy. She has worked long hours in countless pursuit of her dreams and her vision for the Filipino people. Her company has built over 15,000 homes for low to middle-class citizens and she has no plans to stop anytime soon. She is the epitome of strength and resilience, and a true inspiration for all businessmen and professionals.

Six Simple House Maintenance Hacks


Home repairs can be a tedious and sometimes even an expensive job especially when you need to hire a professional to get the job done for you. They can also be complicated and intimidating when you think about doing it yourself, plus there is always the fear of doing even further damage when you try to repair something on your own.

However, there are some repair jobs that you can surely do for yourself. Having a home maintenance plan and knowing the basics of home repair can save you a lot of time and money. Here are 6 simple Home maintenance hacks that you can surely DIY.

Bathroom/ Toilet Repairs

Water leakage in the bathroom will not only cost you a high water bill, but it can also cause water damage to your bathroom floor. If you are suspecting a water leakage in your bathroom, the first thing you can do is to add red food coloring in your toilet tank. In this way, you will be able to see if water is spilling out of it. If there is red water coming out of places it shouldn’t be, then you have a water leakage. The best thing to do is to replace the old washer with a new one.


One of the most commonly recurring household issues is Drainage clogging. This is because fats and oils from the food we cook and eat accumulate in the drains. If you have a clogged drain, all you need to do is pour boiling hot water and dishwashing soap onto the drainage so it may emulsify the oil and unclogging the drains.

Air conditioning

Aircons are one of the costly appliances to do a repair on that’s why it’s also one of the most overlooked appliances to have checked. Regularly inspect the condensation hose to make sure that water can flow freely. Always make sure the screen or aircon filter is free from dirt and dust so that air will keep flowing easily.


If your refrigerator has black coils on the back, make sure you clean that area regularly to avoid dust build. The coils are the ones that keep the food inside the fridge cold, and if they are dirty, they will not work efficiently and may stop cooling altogether.

Doors and Hinges

Getting annoyed by squeaky doors and noisy hinges? Try using a cooking spray to put on a little slip on the hinges so they will stop making any noise.

Cleaning out the carpet

No matter how careful we get, there will always be dirt lying around or on our carpet. Use a squeegee to remove hair or dirt from a carpet. You’ll be surprised at how good a squeegee is at doing this job.

How about you, which hacks will you be trying out immediately?

Imperial Homes: Innovative Housing for a Better Life

Innovative house

For more than 30 years, Imperial Homes has been one of the most established and innovative real estate developers in the Philippines. Imperial Homes is known for primarily engaging on the development of modern leisure villages, middle income as well as low-cost housing projects.

Driven by its commitment on providing the best environment-friendly houses, Imperial Homes Corporation or IHC has received so many awards and recognition. It continues to develop more properties to cater the housing needs of Filipinos who are willing to invest for efficient and durable homes.

Imperial Homes Corporation is founded and handled by Ms. Emma Imperial as the President and CEO of the company. In 2016, she was awarded as one of the FWN 100 Most Influential Filipina Women in the World for her outstanding prowess on managing her business and inspiring other Pinays to strive for the betterment of their lives. Ms. Emma Imperial envisions a future with even low-cost communities running in inexpensive, environment-friendly solar power, hence, the Imperial Homes properties.

In her interview with the Asian Dragon back in 2015, Ms. Emma Imperial shared the amazing history of IHC and how it becomes a successful business in the long run. It was in 1983 when the then wife of late lawyer and Legazpi City mayor Gregorio Imperial Jr. had a brilliant business. “My husband and I were just starting to build a family. But I knew I could do something more where my education and my work experience could be put to good use. I thought of establishing a Montessori school in Legazpi City (Albay, Bicol) because my sons were already starting to go to school. I also put up a poultry farm because there was none at that time in our place. I always think of going into a business that is untried and untested; this challenges me and really drives me,” she said in the interview.

With a meager capital of P200,000, Ms. Emma was able to establish the Imperial Homes Corporation which led to the development of middle income and low-cost housing projects. Since then, the company was able to expand their reach and gave a better housing option for many Filipinos living in the Luzon area,

IHC’s properties are located across different locations like in Batangas, Bicol, Cabanatuan, Cavite, and Las Piñas. The company has a wide array of property type ranging from Basic Communities, Solar Powered Communities, and Vertical Communities. Each community has a distinct characteristic that sets it apart from other real estate properties.

With their innovative ideas and an environment-friendly advocacy, there’s no doubt that Imperial Homes has gone a long way on developing the best real estate properties in the Philippines. Contact our Sales agents for more information on how you can own one of our properties!
