Today we’d like to introduce you to Josh Hartmann.
Josh, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
The concept of NexMetro’s Avilla Homes has its roots in Tucson, AZ, where in 2010 a group of serial entrepreneurs decided to build a neighborhood of small footprint single story homes that they believe would appeal to consumers who were stung by the Great Recession. They were right on the demand, but not for the reason’s originally thought. Consumers have fundamentally changed the way they think about the American Dream, what they value, and how they choose to live. Leasing a home makes sense for a growing number of people – whether its boomers choosing to simplify their lives or millennials who simply don’t want living commitments that tie them down. There has been a substantial shift in the renter mindset, and the demand for higher-quality leased-living experiences is growing on a scale we haven’t seen before.
