A graduate of Hofstra University with some studying at Harvard and the Erasmus University in Rotterdam, Samuel Strauch broke into his own in 2002 with the launch of his own company, Metrik Real Estate.
After a start in banking, and then returning to help his own family’s real estate business in Miami, Samuel Strauch looked around and noticed a rising trend of new real estate developments and the growth from a vacation destination to a full-fledged beach-side metropolis. With his connections in the Latin American community already waiting in the wings as investors and potential clients, and his own history in the type of business, it didn’t take much to get Metrik off the ground. And once it was moving, Metrik did not stop growing. Today Samuel Strauch’s company branches through equity sourcing, acquisitions, development, management, and of course the brokerage of real estate, from South Florida into parts of Latin America, intent to help their customers with all their needs and dreams.

But Samuel Strauch is still human, despite being an entrepreneur. In an interview by IdeaMensch, he points out that he has had errors in judgement, keeping on employees for trust as opposed to how well they do their jobs and notes that it hurt the company, but it was a learning experience for everyone involved. Despite a history of bad relationships and disappointments that he’s had while running the company, he admits that he has learned a lot from life and met a lot of good people purely because he’s kept an open mind. Samuel Strauch cites that he would do nothing differently because of how the positives outweigh the negatives.
