Real Estate Mogul Samuel Strauch
Samuel Strauch’s rise to prominence in real estate is certainly inspiring; this a story about a real estate mogul with a penchant for identifying a niche market, and implementing a business strategy for filling that niche.
If you’re unfamiliar with Samuel Strauch, he is a licensed real estate agent in Florida, and according to HomeLight (a web platform that matches buyers and sellers with real estate agents), he is ranked as one of the top 12% of agents in Miami Beach. This is an impressive ranking, and it’s one that requires a thorough understanding of a given market, as well as excellent business acumen. Samuel’s educational background has positioned him to be successful in any endeavor, but clearly, real estate is his calling. He has completed his undergraduate degree in business at Hofstra University in New York, and also completed studies at Erasmus University in Rotterdam, and studies at the prestigious Harvard University in Cambridge, MA. In his own words “Life is a lesson and whatever path we take is an essential part of our growth.” Real estate is the path that he has chosen, and it’s one that seems to have been paved in gold; Samuel has a penchant for selling expensive homes and doing so at a quick pace. He has been ranked as one of the top 16% of agents who sell home fast in the Miami Beach area, and the average selling price typically exceeds $500,000.
Samuel’s ability to identify trends in the market, along with his “win-win” philosophy gives him a competitive edge. For example, in an interview with Ideamensch.com, Samuel noticed a great market for services specialized for retirees. The exact details were not disclosed, but it would be a benefit to the baby boomers, and would also positively impact our society. If a business idea can help others while also being profitable, it’s a win-win. This kind of forward thinking has lead to the creation of Metrik Holdings, a company which Samuel himself, describes as the convergence point of different paths. He recognized Miami’s shift from a resort town to a full-fledged city. What does this mean? Samuel Strauch had already forged relationships with people in Latin America, and these relationships had the potential to manifest themselves into clients or investors, and with this knowledge a progressive real estate company, headquartered in south Beach, FL, was born.
Although highly driven, Samuel dedicates a portion of his day towards meditation; he believes in giving his mind some time off. He also believes that spending money on experiences with family and friends can, at times, be far more rewarding than spending the same money on material possessions. Samuel admits to getting his best ideas during moments of leisure; he recognizes when he needs to unwind, and when he needs to go full throttle. Understanding the benefits associated with both sides of this spectrum, along with an impressive educational background and a forward-thinking business approach, means that his favorable real estate ranking will continue and his success in this industry is boundless.
