Samuel Strauch is at the forefront of the real estate investment boom that has been going on in Miami, FL for the better part of the past decade.

Strauch has a degree in business after studying from several high profile universities including Hofstra and Harvard and he has been putting that education to good use over the years. Strauch’s careful and controlled ascent up the industry says as much about his company, Metrik Holdings, as it does about the talented entrepreneur himself. To get to where Strauch has gotten in his career it could be worth diving into advice that the real estate mogul has put together.

To start things off, Samuel Strauch is firmly in the camp that your networking skills are your greatest assets. Without quality networking you’ll never be able to make the connections and form the relationships necessary in order to become successful in the business. Strauch says, “The key to my business is always meeting new people and strengthening relationships (…)” Strauch goes on to really emphasize the point that new relationships can lead to new business opportunities, ideas, and clients. However, Strauch still knows that you have to take care of yourself above all. Strauch spends as much of his free time as possible holed up and meditating so that he can keep his focus on what is important.

Metrik Real Estate has always been considered pretty progressive in their approach to the real estate market. They started out as a local realty company servicing the needs of the Miami area before going more global with networking in Latin America, as well. Strauch says, “Being forward thinking and creative is part of our DNA and it clearly sets us apart as leaders in our industry.” Strauch goes on to explain that his company is focused on being analytical and really sinking their teeth into every idea. If the idea passes the analysis then they go forward and put every ounce of their energy into developing it.

Perhaps what impresses us most about Strauch isn’t what he has accomplished, but what he wouldn’t change. Strauch confidently says that he wouldn’t change a thing if he had the opportunity. Perhaps it is his deep meditation but his answer is simple, “Life is a lesson and whatever path we take is an essential part of our growth.”
