Brazil is one of the high potential real estate market in South America currently. The country is the largest economy in the region and continuously sees an increase in demand for houses either for residential or commercial purposes. One of the biggest real-estate business in the area currently is a family-owned business known as JHSF. This company deals with construction and development of residential and commercial buildings, mainly targeted at the high-end income earners in the country. The company was founded in the early 1970s by two brothers- Fabio and Jose Auriemo. One of the partners left the company with the other investing more in the company with the aim of making it one of the biggest real estate companies in this region. Since then, JHSF has taken a direction of success that has been copied by the subsequent management of the current CEO Jose Auriemo Neto.
JHSF is involved in the development of shopping malls, airports and recently hotels. It is the current owner of the Fasano Hotels. The company is currently focusing on recurring revenue by adopting sustainability methods in all their projects. The leadership of the company has managed to place the company at the top of the industry by focusing on innovations that will keep it ahead of others in the industry. The company is extremely wealthy judging from the investment that it has been making in Brazil and beyond. JHSF has done most of the major shopping malls and high-end real estate projects. Most of its projects are located in the cities of Manaus, Brasilia and Sao Paulo. The company recently ventured into the United States and Uruguay market.
Jose Auriemo Neto is the current head of this company. He is the son of Fabio Auriemo, one of the founders. He succeeded his father in the management of the company in the 1990’s. He has been very active in the management of the business and much of the success that has been recorded since the turn of the millennium can be attributed to the work he has done. He has remained focused on growing the company to the extent that it is now one of the biggest in Latin America.
