What we're about

GRID (formerly known as CAZA Investor Network) started in 2007 with less than 10 people and has since grown to over 10,000 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!

Rehabbing For BIG Profit With Josh Cohen DC First Properties.

Keri Shull Team at Optime Realty

So, how's this all work then, you might ask? With the buying and fixing and the flipping... well, sorry, it's a secret. NOT! Come on out to this month's Grid Investor Network Meetup and we'll tell you all about it. We'll review the topics we've covered so far this year: on wholesaling, rehabbing and even touch on rentals, then we'll SHOW you how we're doing it. We'll look at a recent rehab project and discuss how we found it, how much we spent to renovate it and how much we made or lost when we sold it (spoiler alert: she's a winner), with listing data, photos and more. Part inspiration, part education and part terrible stand-up comedy— The Grid Investor Network is THE place to be if you're interested in investing in real estate. We'll see you there!

Virtual Deals And Build Your Team w/ Antoine Campbell

Keri Shull Team at Optime Realty

Real estate investing is a great business - partly because you have no "boss" and no office politics since the business can be done successfully by one person or a small partnership. But does that mean you never have to deal with other people? Nope - and you shouldn't want to anyway. We have a team of fellow professionals and others that bring us deals, help our business and get business in return. It's a beautiful circle and it will make you money. Come find out how at this month's Meetup in Arlington. We will discuss how to build your "dream team" and make it work for you. Spoiler alert: there will probably be some excellent candidates for your dream team at the Meetup — it IS the area's best networking event for real estate, don't you know ;-). See you there!

You may have heard other investors, gurus and financial planners discussing the virtues of owning rental properties. And it is definitely true that a portfolio of GOOD rental properties can provide lifetime income and financial security. But what really makes a GOOD rental property? What should you expect from your rental portfolio and how do you manage it for maximum return on minimal effort? We'll cover those points and more with real examples and data at this month's Meetup. It should be a good one, packed with usable content and, as always, the best real estate networking in the area. See you there! Dan and John Grid Arlington
