Words From The Media, Partners, & Clients
Few people operate in the rarified world of solving problems that can’t be solved for the most demanding of elite clientele in the world. If you want the most luxurious experience in the world, then you would call Niko Contardi the 'Billionaire broker'. Niko started the business 8 years ago in San Diego, C.A., where he started to notice that there was one thing that his clients needed the most…time. He then made it his main goal to have an all-encompassing service for his clients that is efficient and user-friendly, hence he is developing a unique software technology that has one reservation system with live inventory.
The rise of Airbnb and HomeAway has made vacation rentals a top accommodation choice for business and leisure travelers alike. While those two sites pretty much dominate the home-sharing market, a crop of startups has started popping up to cater to the luxury traveler. One of those startups, EliteLyfe, aims to take things to the next level by offering concierge-style services and super exclusive add-ons.
"Delivering real value in business is what makes the difference between the so-called winners and losers. Those who try to cut corners and take shortcuts don't actually get ahead in the long term. They might make some short-term traction, but that's about it."
