What we're about


GRID Alexandria is lead by powerhouse duo, Shad and Melanie Montague.

Based in Maryland, The Montagues have earned their stripes in both the investing and retail world, and have recently expanded operations to Virginia and now bravely lead two GRID Chapters: Alexandria and Prince Frederick.

Together, they are an example of leadership that practices consistency and comes from a place of contribution.

Montague Properties with Keller Williams Select Realtors is a premier real estate team focusing on selling real estate in Maryland with a focus on the Eastern Shore, Anne Arundel, Prince Georges, Calvert, Charles, and St. Mary’s Counties.

As the #1 team in their local market center, Montague Properties has a combined 25 years of experience real estate and has sold an average of 60 homes per year with a sales volume over 77 Million Dollars. Montague Properties has ranked in the top 10 percent for sales the Maryland/DC region. In 2018, they focused on helping 125 families in the sale or purchase of their forever home.


GRID started in 2007 with less than 10 people and has since grown to over 11,000 members in 12+ locations in 3 states.

We believe the networking, education and inspiration you need to become a real estate investing pro is best found at the local level – which means that you need local knowledge, local contacts and local resources to help you grow.

GRID represents who we are (a power network) and what we do:

G: grow (your database)

R: return (on relationships)

I: invest (in people and assets)

D: develop (leadership and expertise)

Each Chapter is run by active and experienced real estate entrepreneurs who are doing deals in their area and who have joined GRID to share their stories, facilitate conversations, nurture relationships, and create more business opportunities for everyone in the room.

We welcome real estate entrepreneurs of all experience levels to join us in the endeavor to build and expand your reach, knowledge-base, business, and potential.

See you out there!
