Andrew Cohn began his development and investing career upon purchasing a single family row home in Baltimore’s Washington Village in 2012 while still an MBA student at Hofstra University. After several other successful residential ventures, Andrew created Liberty Group Holdings in January 2015 to capitalize on the increasing demand for well managed apartment communities in Baltimore City and surrounding areas. Under the banner of Liberty Group Holdings (and predecessor entities), Andrew has closed on and re-positioned over $9mm of under-utilized residential and mixed use properties in Federal Hill, Mt. Vernon, Station North and Old Goucher and has honed his investment strategy to focus on value-add multifamily properties in core Washington DC and Baltimore neighborhoods with a long term holding period.
In November 2017 Andrew became the CEO of Lustine Realty Company in Washington DC with responsibility for re-positioning not only a 300 unit multifamily and mixed use portfolio, but the company itself. Started by J. Gerald Lustine in 1954, Lustine Realty Company has been a property manager and joint venture partner in Washington DC for six decades. Andrew Cohn is the third generation of the Lustine family to lead the storied company on it's next phase of growth. With the addition of the Lustine Realty portfolio, Liberty Group Holdings now has $30mm AUM.
Andrew obtained his B.S.B.A. in Entrepreneurship from Suffolk University in 2008 and completed a dual track MBA in Finance & Real Estate at Hofstra University in 2013.
