About Dr. Dylan Koch

Dylan was born and raised in a small town, a very blue-collar area in western Ohio. He went to the University of Cincinnati to study pharmacy and graduated six years later, in 2017. Dylan was very career-oriented at first and went on to manage a retail pharmacy at 25. However, his mindset shifted from salary/career-oriented to entrepreneur and investing-oriented after he read Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. 

 He bought his first house hack in June 2018, his second in August 2018, and another in January 2019. 

 Through a partnership, Dylan built up to 13 residential units b/t SFH and small multi-families. When his partnership ended, he divested his assets and went full-time in real estate in September 2020. 

Since then, Dylan has added seven units to his portfolio, six wholesales, one flip, and three agent sales.
