Michael Koh is the managing partner and founder of Koh Inversiones (Koh Investments). He is also the founder and former owner of ApartmentsBA.com, which was the most respected real estate property management and consulting firm in South America. He served as the President & CEO of ApartmentsBA until October 2010 when the company was acquired by Luxury Retreats.
Mr. Koh has often been called a visionary by locals and foreigners alike for his foresight on the real estate market and his investment activities within Argentina. He was the largest buyer of residential real estate in Buenos Aires from 2003 to 2010.
He provides consulting as well as advisory services for individual entrepreneurs, corporations, and investment & hedge funds.
Mr. Koh has been on the forefront of worldwide economic conditions. He accurately forecasted and warned in 2004/2005/2006/2007 of the upcoming collapse in the USA real estate market, the “Great Recession” in the USA, the stock market meltdown of 2008, and advised his clients to sell short the financial sector in 2007 as well as cover short positions in January 2009.
Mr. Koh took major positions in the acquisition of residential real estate in Buenos Aires starting in 2003. He forecasted that real estate would dramatically increase in value in Buenos Aires. Real estate went on to more than double since he started recommending & acquiring properties in Argentina, while at the same time plummeting in all the areas around the world he predicted it would fall. He successfully advised his clients to sell their real estate portfolios in the USA, Spain, UK, and Ireland before prices started their downfall.
He also recommended to his clients to start acquiring residential real estate in the USA in mid-2011, which coincides with the bottoming out of real estate prices in the USA. Prices in many cities which he started acquiring real estate have significantly risen in value as he forecasted.
Mr. Koh has successfully franchised property management companies across South America in Bariloche, Argentina, Lima, Peru, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and Mendoza, Argentina. He has also recently sold a franchise for Sao Paulo, Brazil.
