Real Estate broker Samuel Strauch has been the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of Metrik Real Estate. which is located in the South Beach area of Miami, Florida, for 15 years. He started his company in 2002 after initially having a career in banking shortly after he graduated from Hofstra University in New York with a B.A. degree. He also attended Harvard University, as well as Erasmus University.
Before he decided to start his own business, he worked in his family’s real estate business for awhile. He eventually earned a good reputation as one of the highest ranking leaders in real estate in Latin American countries and in the Florida area. He describes himself as having a creative personality, along with a win-win attitude, and the ability to think outside the box, which he feels distinguishes him from others in the industry.
When he moved to the Miami area years ago, he said that he noticed that the city seemed to be transforming from just being a vacation spot to a metropolis on the beach. This gave him ideas about how to use his expertise to help in the redevelopment of the popular resort town. That’s when he called on international investors and clients to assist him with the funding he needed to start his real estate business.
He says that he has kept the business going by cultivating relationships with investors, brokers, clients, and partners who are also a part of the real estate industry. His company is divided into three parts: Equity and Development; Brokerage; and Management. One of the ways he has managed to keep his company successful is by studying societal trends. This gives him a good idea about what potential clients may be seeking when it comes to the housing market.
Samuel Strauch also invests in Internet businesses, as well as in restaurants. And when he is not hard at work, he likes to pursue interests he is passionate about, such as photography and art. He is also into meditation, which he says allows him to be more focused in both his personal and professional life.
