Marissa Rocha and her husband Christian have stopped worrying about getting kicked out of a small room that is their home after she, a 32-year-old housewife, won a brand new house and lot from Lessandra in the jackpot round of “It’s Showtime’s” Piling Lucky segment last Monday (February 17).

“Winning a new house is a big help to us, we don’t need to rent anymore. We only have to pay for electricity and water from now on. It brings us great comfort,”said Marissa, 32.

Marissa and her husband Christian, 35, have been sharing a room with their one-year-old child in Sta. Ana, Manila. This room is part of a house they live in with Christian’s relatives – his grandmother, his aunt, and his siblings. Every month, the siblings chip in for the rent and utilities.

Christian’s family has been renting out the property for 24 years, until last year, they were notified that the owner put it up for sale and that they needed to find a new home.

“We should have moved out last year. The owner has been telling us. That is why he has been looking for a place, so we can move out when we are forced to,” shared Marissa.

“I’ve been looking up houses in Cavite on Facebook. ‘Ma, do you want this? It’s only P2,000 monthly.’ ‘No, that’s too expensive.’ Little did we know a house is coming our way,” shared Christian.

Living in a place they can call their own is a dream come true for the couple. In fact, when “It’s Showtime” announced that a brand new house and lot was going to be the jackpot prize in “Piling Lucky,” the couple was optimistic, and prayed for divine intervention when they went to church last Sunday.

Because of “Piling Lucky” and a brand new house and lot from Lessandra, Marissa and Christian can look forward to building a future with their family in Tanza, Cavite. They can now devote their resources to paying off their loan for a car that Christian is using for his job.

Marissa and her family can now finally move in to a place they can call their own home, after being blessed with a brand new two-storey townhouse “Arielle,” with 36-square meter floor area and 42-square meter lot area, which features two bedrooms, a living area, dining and kitchen, toilet, and bathroom. Bringing the utmost convenience and accessibility to everything that they need, Lessandra guarantees a wise home investment for them, affording its homeowners a wide selection of brilliantly crafted houses and a complete set of amenities like club house, swimming pool, basketball court, and playground. They can now enjoy a home that is strategically located in close proximity to business and commercial hubs, schools, hospitals, churches, and major transportation hubs.

Lessandra, provider of affordable, quality dream homes that elevate Filipino’s lives, is the fastest rising star in the housing industry with real estate properties that offers convenience and exclusivity all over the country. Perfect for young professionals and starting families, it is a pride and joy living in this vibrant community as it wills to create harmony for career and personal lives of active families.

Marissa is the latest big winner of “Piling Lucky,” which also named its first millionaire on February 14 when a contestant, Ryan, won the P1.1 million jackpot prize.
