My name is Austin Kost, Co-Founder of Metastone. Early on in college while playing baseball, I fell in love with the concept of investing after my dad gave me a few thousand dollars to pick any stock I wanted. Within 24 hours, I was hooked watching CNBC trying to find the best way to invest my money. Through the duration of college, I became obsessed with the stock market and even started day trading. Upon graduation however, I had realized how hard it was to break into the investment management space as a stock trader so I continued my pursuit of finding the most effective, recession proof investment strategy to start honing in on. It didn’t take long to realize real estate was the way to go.
My mission as a professional is to create enough value within the investment real estate industry and make a real impact on the investment industry as a whole. One main focus of my life is to always be learning and finding ways to improve.

My name is Dylan From, Co-Founder of Metastone. I graduated from the University of South Dakota with a bachelor’s degree in business management and a minor in Spanish. However, I struggled most of my college career to find an industry that I sincerely loved and felt passionate about.
After graduation, I immediately went to work in the insurance/financial industry. Although I learned invaluable information at the job, I knew something needed to change. I have a strong sense of pertinacity for real estate, and I know this team does as well. Not many times do you get six individuals so indulged and dedicated to a single task. We started this company to make a difference and bring value to the real estate industry, and we are going to continue doing that by learning, growing, and building our network with like-minded individuals.

Post graduation I moved into the sales field but felt unfulfilled and unsatisfied in my work.
