Interview @ Yafko Hotel


Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path? 

Being a hotel owner is something one must have a knack for, common sense and loves people and has a great deal of support and patience to accommodate others; I consider myself a Businessman with a diverse portfolio such , Bargold Liquidators LLC, FAYKO REALTY INVESTMENTS a Delaware company. etc so starting off in the hotel world is what made me better, smarter with all modesty, and a more motivated person to keep showing myself there is more to be done.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this? 

Electrical Outage for 2 hours due to city construction and our generator went along as well. Point blank everyone had a free two-night stay and it was never mentioned ever again. Since being a habitual and routine-like businessman; I guess its always straight to the point and don’t waste my time or anyone else’s since I do have very little of it to myself, the rest goes on to work, second shifting my nightlife to maintain work across the globe so much nothing really happens to be honest.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? 

In the hotel Industry specifically; never just maintain. Technology is evolving every day. Learn something new, renovate, learn, speak less act more listen without missing a peep. There is always something going on and someone trying to get away with it, from it, etc not to insinuate or accuse of anything just being in general terms kind of speaking.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? 

My Grandfather left my Father a shoe store in Central America, My Father turns it into an empire, I was raised looking up to the man everyone also still looks upon fondly till this day. I spoke to my father seriously and told him I didn’t want to study and I wanted to work instead, being from Palestine born in Jordan, were more traditional and backward in certain things, at least in my case, so since it was my fathers story too, he knew I was good for it because at 12 years old instead of playing Counter-Strike CSS: Go and 1.6 I still remember them so well because they were my first earned dollars; I was selling access and hosting private games and making money doing it, then the iPhone came out and I taught myself how to fix it so I would skip out on most of life and just work with that or my now basic; computer knowledge and websites such as HTML, JAVA, CSS PHP I was always finding a way to make a dollar. He sees it in everything I do and I guess got swayed by my idea and let me learn the ropes by his side before starting my little project and letting me make my mistakes and grow slowly.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

Yes I have I fund two charities and a non-profit and have adopted the cost of the life of a foster child and an orphan, and they are almost about to graduate. But that I like to keep to myself; just so I stay grounded and remember my values and principals. It’s my own high in a way and sharing it makes me bummed out is the best way I have had to put it for once.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

Getting to the top is the Easier part; Maintaining is the hard one.
