Josh Cohen

President & Co-Founder

Josh is a lifetime serial entrepreneur. He knew it from the time he first started toying with computer programs in high school. Josh spent many years working at a top research facility as an electronics engineer and later a program manager solving complex technical problems. During this time, he found another passion in life in real estate investment.

In 2009, he co-founded NOVA Express Buyers, which became one of the most active residential real estate buyers in parts of Fairfax County, Virginia. Buying fixer upper houses using private money became a passion. In 2014, he founded a new company DC First Properties.

Today as President of DC First Properties, he leads a team that focuses on buying older houses in the DC metro region for re-development. He is an active speaker on various real estate topics, real estate investment club leader, and an emerging author. Click here to send him an email.
