The Grid Team
Kohle Kreitzberg » Vice President and Co-Founder
As Grid’s Vice President and Co-founder, I work with both seasoned and first-time investors looking to dive into Portland’s thriving real estate market. Few, if any, investment avenues offer the stability, appreciation, and opportunity for financial leverage that real estate does. However, real estate investing requires enlisting the full-time services of a dedicated property management company to attend to the constant care and maintenance of your asset. I want to make sure investors know that with the right management company, property investing can be an extremely low-stress yet high-return financial pursuit!
I was born and raised here in Portland, secured a mechanical engineering degree at Stanford, and then promptly returned to help launch Grid. I’m an avid backpacker, hiker, and shooter. I’m always looking for a new and better piece of camping gear and spend all together too much time at REI! I love working with property owners and working together to provide unmatched management services so that our owner clients continue to invest in Portland’s booming market…give me a call today!
Nanci Mastoris » Property Manager
I’m Nanci, a Property Manager here at Grid. I work with tenants and property owners alike. I am fully accountable for all day to day property operations, overseeing and enhancing the value of the properties we manage. My duties involve managing all aspects of the tenant and owner relationship for the properties in my responsibility.
I am an organically raised Portlander with 6 years prior work experience in the insurance industry. I am dual licensed in Oregon and Washington and hold my property/casualty and life/health licenses. I lived in Alaska for two years and I recently returned from a backpacking trip in Mexico in 2015. I’ve come back to Portland full force, ready to grow my own rental portfolio and learn from the best. I enjoy camping, hiking, attending music festivals, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and discovering good food. I absolutely love living in the Pacific Northwest!
Michelle Kolososki » Property Manager
Hello! I’m Michelle, Property Manager here at Grid. I work daily on the ongoing development of property operations, maintaining/developing client relationships and my personal goal, to always give the best customer service possible. It is my duty to work closely with tenants to ensure their comfort and safety. My position also allows me the opportunity to work for our property owners managing their accounts, investments and ensuring an appreciation of their portfolios. Most of all, Grid allows me the opportunity to pour my passion for business growth, development and relationships into a company that exudes its values.
Prior to Grid, I spent many years as an entrepreneur running daily operations of my personal studio. My experience and passion for brand, business and system development has informed me well in the dynamic position as property manager. In addition to my experience as a business owner, I have many years of customer service and operations management. I enjoy creative thinking, problem solving and making. If I am not working or moving my body I am making fine ceramics or painting in my home studio. I couldn’t imagine a better place to live than Portland, and am so rewarded that I get to help others find a place to call home.
Brandon Alcott » Property Manager
As one of our Property Managers, I manage properties through the entire cycle, starting from the preparation of the property for leasing, to move-in and move-out of tenants. It is my goal to ensure a positive experience for owners and tenants alike during the entire time that properties are under my management.
I spent most of my youth in the northwest, growing up on my family’s farm in Yelm, WA. I originally endeavored to become a doctor, earning a Neuroscience degree while on the pre-med track at WSU. As plans are apt to change, I redirected towards business, earning an MBA from Willamette University. I am fairly new to property management, but have diverse experience in a number of different fields. Recently married with two “insta-kids” (who keep me busy and humble), I can sometimes be found moonlighting as a professional polo player and instructor. We have a 14 acre farm in Vancouver, complete with horses, goats, and chickens, and we grow our own organic produce!
Jonathan Vernwald » Leasing Manager
Hello! I’m Jonathan, the Leasing Manager here at Grid. I work very closely with property owners, property managers and prospective tenants on a day to day basis to provide the most up to date rental stats on Portland’s ever changing rental market. My responsibilities range from marketing, pricing and availability of current units to guiding new prospective tenants from viewing to applying and ultimately becoming a Grid tenant. I have a driving passion for real estate and an ever watchful eye on the constantly adapting and flexing Portland market.
I moved to Portland in the spring of 2006 with the idea that I would be here for a year or two - I’m a bit over my timeline! Portland’s unique culture has kept me exploring, learning and experiencing all this city has to offer. You’ll find me out soaking up the Portland life on any given day. I enjoy travel, dining, live entertainment and really anything that gets me out of the house and into the city. If you’re looking for your next place to call home give me a call… I can even offer a great dinner recommendation!
Peter Smith » Photographer and Videographer
Hello! My name is Peter Smith, and I am the owner of Vivid Frame Media, an Oregon-based multimedia production company. I have been working professionally with digital media since 2004. I have partnered with Grid since 2013 to provide photography and video services for Grid’s entire portfolio in order to showcase each property in the best possible way. In addition to providing marketing materials, I also participate in Grid’s scheduled periodic full-photo property inspection "walkthroughs", working with tenants to address issues and ensure lease compliance, and providing Grid owners with detailed visual updates on their investments.
