What we're about

Welcome! GRID is a real estate network built by investors for investors. We are a group of real people doing real deals. Our core mission is to connect to, learn from, and collaborate with like-minded people interested in growing their businesses and creating long-term wealth.

We welcome investors of all experience levels. We are life-long learners and believe everyone has value to share.

The Format

We meet once a month, 12 months a year, on same day, week, and time of the month.

Each month we cover a different investing topic in the Lifecycle of an Investor—ranging from wholesaling to rehabbing to becoming the bank through private lending.

Our meetings are not sales pitches. They are opportunities for us to dive deep on a real estate topic, connect with local experts in our marketplace, and build long-term relationships with other doers.

Your Leadership

GRID Upper Marlboro is lead by powerhouse duo, Frank Godfrey

Frank moved to the District of Columbia in 1991 to assist his uncle as an appraiser in the Real Estate Appraisal industry. Within a year, as Vice President of O & A, Inc. his company grew from a one-man shop to a twelve-employee machine.

In 1994, O & A, Inc. diversified into the Home Inspection industry and was known as the largest minority-owned and operated Appraisal and Home Inspection Company in the region.

Investing in real estate, he soon realized that the Real Estate sales side of the industry is where he was destined to be. In the summer of 2000, he started his Real Estate career by joining Re/Max 100. At that time he was a Buyer's Specialist for one of the top teams in the region. In the summer of 2003, he started his own team, Team Godfrey, and in May of 2004, he made one of the best decisions of his life by moving from Re/Max to Keller Williams Preferred Properties.

As a team whose agents only work in the local area of the DMV, The Godfrey Group brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate. It's not the same everywhere, so you need a team you can trust for up-to-date information. They are eager to serve you.

How To Rehab For Big Profits: 3 Steps To Executing A Successful Rehab Project

So, how's this all work then, you might ask, with the buying and fixing and flipping? Well, the good news is—it’s not a secret! Join us at this month’s meeting 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.
