Miami is widely known as one of America’s most entertaining cities and top tourist destinations. While Miami has always been synonymous with great weather, pristine beaches, incredible food, exciting nightlife, and beautiful people, the city has seen a dramatic increase in new residents over the past two years. Of course, the Miami real estate market reflects this influx of new people as 2021 saw the highest single-family home prices and median sales prices in the history of South Florida. The rental market followed suit as rental prices increased by 38%.
During this time, a handful of talented entrepreneurs and resourceful companies have used this increased attention on the city as an opportunity to grow their businesses and brands. Miami’s economy is flourishing as entrepreneurs in the city skillfully respond to market trends and authentically provide value to the end consumer.
Luxuri, founded by Jonathan Campau, is an industry-leading luxury real estate brokerage, property management company, and vacation rental concierge service, disrupting multiple markets with its vertically integrated approach and emphasis on customer service. Luxuri provides value to real estate investors throughout the entire lifecycle of their investment; similarly, Luxuri provides comprehensive booking and concierge services for those looking for a luxury vacation experience. Starting in Miami, Luxuri is known for its gorgeous homes, attention to detail, and wide variety of services.
Campau has been destined to curate 5-star hospitality experiences since he was a child. The Luxuri founder discovered his love for real estate as a university student in South Florida however he has nurtured a love of hospitality throughout his life. At a young age, Campau traveled with his grandmother and stayed in lavish hotel suites every summer. Those vacations were pivotal as they were the inspiration behind the hospitality brand, Luxuri.
However, despite a desire to go to Switzerland for hospitality school when he came of age, Campau ultimately decided to go to business school in South Florida. During his first summer in Florida, Campau decided to pursue a real estate internship. As destiny would have it, a man named Larry Shinbaum offered Campau a job after a cold call. Unfortunately, when Campau graduated college, the real estate industry was in the midst of the 2008 housing crisis. This led Campau to take a job at an investment firm in Kansas City instead of further pursuing real estate. In addition to learning about business analytics and investment best practices, Campau met his future wife at this firm. Exhibiting his entrepreneurial drive and real estate sense, Campau established a property management company in Kansas City and began renting property to college kids in the area while working at the investment firm. Campau quickly understood that his real estate business had legs and called his mentor Larry Shinbaum for advice. This sparked Campau to move his operation to Miami and begin a process of ‘rental arbitrage,’ renting houses and sub renting them on Airbnb. By renting so many properties this way, Camapu quickly learned the ins and outs of Miami real estate as well as what tourists were looking for in a vacation rental.
During the start of COVID-19, and Miami’s real estate renaissance, Campau would partner with his mentor, Larry Shinbaum to build out Luxuri’s real estate brokerage division, in addition to its existing property management and vacation rental business. Campau did not build this growing business by running away from anything; Campau runs towards the big money moves with intentionality and boldness
