In the last few decades, the real estate market in Brazil has changed dramatically. The real estate sector of Brazil was in deflation mode for many years, and the prices of properties along with interest were high making it difficult for local buyers to purchase them. Since the demand for properties decreased, the Brazilian developers and real estate agents too found themselves in trouble. But, the scenario has completely changed today due to the action of a few people. The government is putting in some serious reforms in place that will benefit the real estate industry.
One of the main reasons behind the change is the efforts of the top real estate companies to revive the ailing sector. Companies such as JHSF were the first to explore some of the other commercial property markets that is profitable. The company invested in commercial properties such as large shopping centers in the middle of the cities and towns. With the demand for such property increasing, there was a sudden growth of demand for commercial and residential properties as well.
José Auriemo Neto is the present CEO and the chairman of JHSF. His predecessors have helped build a strong base for the company, and he is taking it forward with much zeal. Apart from offering an extensive portfolio of products and services, he is constantly looking for new opportunities that no one has explored before. He is ready to take calculative risks since he has a strong team that backs him up.
José Auriemo Neto has managed to build partnerships with leading luxury brands like Daslu, Reebok Academy, Louis Vuitton, Montblanc, Cinemark and others for his shopping complexes and aims to bring more international brands to Brazil. The main aim of JHSF is to bring Brazil into the global market and attract many other luxury brands to come and invest in the country.
