Dylan Marma

principal

Dylan is the principal of The Requity Group, a vertically integrated real estate private equity company. He has been investing full time for the last 4 years and has been the lead sponsor of over $100m in transactions, including over 750 multifamily apartments and 1,200 lots of manufactured housing communities and RV campgrounds. Dylan is a firm believer that through careful deal selection, attracting exceptional people, and utilizing technology-backed systems you can ensure above-average risk-adjusted returns through real estate.

 

Dylan grew up in upstate New York to a middle class family and began working long days in construction at 15 years old. That taught him how to work hard and he has not worked a normal 40 hour work week, it also taught him how to work smart as he realized he wanted to be on the investment/development side of things. After 3 years in the corporate world, Dylan made the commitment to build an organization focused on serving investors through acquiring actively managed real estate assets throughout the growing SouthEast. Dylan holds his CCIM designation, he’s been featured on dozens of podcasts, and he currently resides in Tampa, Florida where he also runs a monthly meet-up event educating commercial real estate investors.
