The Grid Team
Kohle Kreitzberg » President and Co-Founder
As Grid’s 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. On my off time, I volunteer as a rope rescue technician and ground searcher for Clackamas County Sheriff’s Department Search and Rescue. 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!
Kiely Kreitzberg » Leasing Manager
I'm Kiely Kreitzberg. I started with Grid in the Fall of 2017 as a leasing agent. I now manage the leasing team for both the commercial and residential sides of Grid. I truly enjoy helping small businesses find their next commercial space and helping residential tenants find a perfect place to call home!
Born and raised in Portland, I have experience in micro-finance, marketing, event planning, and communications. Outside of the office, I run a children's learning center located on a beautiful farm where you'll find me teaching about nature and the great outdoors!

Avery Compton » Assistant Portfolio Manager, Team 2
Hi All! I’m Avery, and I joined the Grid Team in July 2022 as the Assistant Portfolio Manager for Team 2. I graduated from the University of Montana in 2018 where I studied sociology and criminology. Although my area of study doesn’t scream property management, it taught me all about how to best work and communicate with people of all walks of life in any situation.
After graduating, I moved to NW Portland where I worked in property management. I found such a sense of fulfillment working with residents and helping them find their new home. Outside of work, I spend a lot of my time trying out new restaurants, reading, and falling in love with the Blazers! If I’m not working, you can probably catch me at a Blazer or Winterhawks game. I’m very excited about this opportunity to work with Grid, and I am looking forward to building relationships with clients and residents!
