Jos Auriemo Neto has a Unique Vision for JHSF

José Auriemo Neto has a passion for being different and innovative. He has always been inspired by the real estate sector of the developed countries. Hence he has entered into a partnership with several international brands. In this way, he has brought these reputed international brands to Brazil. This was not an easy thing as none of these brands were interested in investing in a slow-moving economy such as Brazil. José Auriemo Neto has managed to change all this today.

He continues to attract foreign investment in Brazil today as he is investing in large-scale infrastructure projects like five-star hotels, resorts and so on.

JHSF is a real estate company with humble beginnings. It was set up in 1972 by the brothers, Fabio and Jose Robert along with two other partners. The hard work of everyone in the company made it a leader in this highly competitive industry within a few decades. JHSF continues setting new standards for the other companies in this sector.

The company provides real estate solutions that are modern and innovative. This was the first company that set up a green building in Brazil. JHSF set up a luxurious residential building in 2011. It was called Vitra. This was an environmentally friendly building. It had green features that were not offered by any other real estate company. This company is always looking for new opportunities and accepting challenges. It entered the hotel business in 2014 with the Hotel Fasano. Since then, JHSF has bought several hotels as well as restaurants in Brazil. The company is expanding its geographical reach now. Hence it has entered the overseas market by making inroads into the New York, Miami, as well as Punta Del Estate markets. All this is a result of the vision of its Chairman and CEO, José Auriemo Neto.
