Cagayan de Oro's best places to live

Becoming the most progressive city in Northern Mindanao, Cagayan de Oro City has been ready to accommodate its own residents as well as migrants who wish to build their dream homes and live in harmonious and serene communities this city has to offer. Housing developers had ventured the city's abundant residential areas and provided the best suburban communities with secured environments all over the city. Among the first to introduced housing development were Pueblo de Oro Development Corporation, Camella Homes, Robinsons Homes, Liberty Land Development Corporation and Land Resources to name a few among the aggressive development companies that operates here in the 'City of Golden Friendship'. As time passed by, CDO City becomes the most love and desired place to settle down by residents of its neighboring towns and municipalities. With the recent introduction of condominium living, the city becomes par with other major cities nationwide in terms of subdivision housing as well as horizontal (townhouse) and vertical condominium projects. Now, expats started to eye the city as a second home as well as for retirement.

A Brown Company, Inc.

A Brown Company, Inc. is the leader in real estate development in Cagayan De Oro and the rest of Northern Mindanao. Here, it offers two of its most prominent and wonderful high-end subdivisions namely; Xavier Estates and Teakwood Hills. Xavier Estates was the first high-end offering by A Brown situated in uptown Cagayan de Oro which is very near the Business Park and Pueblo de Oro Township; while Teakwood Hills is located in Agusan, CDO City. In Teakwood Hills, residents are living like they're on top of the world boasting of the wonderful view of the Macajalar Bay and the surrounding mountains.   

The above-mentioned subdivisions and communities are just among the residential housing projects here in Cagayan de Oro City that is being offered by the best developers in the country today. There's so much more of them; however, I found the above, the best among others.
