The success of JHSF as a premium real estate developer for the high-end Brazilian sector is a story of innovation for decades.

The firm that was a residential real-estate developer, predominantly, spread its wings to other sectors of the business under the leadership of Neto. He paved ways for the firm into the retail sector, executive airport, and more. This helped the company to improve its brand building and earned the reputation of highest-quality real estate solutions provider.
As the Chief Executive of the firm, Neto oversees its public developments, hotels, commercial buildings, residential projects, and more. He is also strategizing and giving vision to the future plans of the business group and monitoring the projects that are currently undergoing. Neto joined the premium real estate developer in the year 1993 and helped it to create a service department in the year 1997 – Parkbem, a parking space management firm.
