Born in the South of France and transplanted into the heart of Florida, Mathieu Massa has dipped his feet into more than just a few professions in which he has made the Massa name well known. Running Massa Investment, a real estate development company, Massa Construction, a hospitality management company called Mr. Hospitality Group. As a sort of 'one-stop-shop' Massa has created a legacy of aesthetic while setting standards in his (multiple) industries. With Massa's description of luxury being "authentic, classic, [and] understated," it is no wonder that his success in his fields has brought a luxurious clientele to his doorstep.
