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. On my off time, I volunteer as a rope rescue technician and ground searcher for Pacific Northwest 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!
Lindsay Johnson » Portfolio Manager, Team 1
Hi! My name is Lindsay. I am originally from Chicago, but I relocated to Portland in the spring of 2011. When I am not visiting properties, or hard at work in the Grid office, you can find me spending time with family and friends, creating art, or out exploring everything our wonderful city and state has to offer!
My role within Grid Property Management is that of Portfolio Manager, charged with ensuring that our property owners’ financial investments are well maintained and that our valued residents are happy in their homes. As a Portland renter myself, I appreciate the importance of an efficient property management company. Timely and competent customer service is what I strive to provide for all our Grid clients and residents!

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 portfolio manager.

Judy M. » Leasing Agent
Hi my name is Judy and I found my niche as a leasing agent with Grid Property Management. As a young adult I loved going to open houses. I'd try to visualize the perfect arrangement for furniture in a particular space and how people would decorate a house to make it into their home. Portland has a diverse range of architecture spread across the city and a wonderful array of communities! I enjoy exploring the esthetic character and delicious eateries of each.
I love spending time learning about the different areas and what they have to offer, so that I can help the Portland rental market to find their perfect fit. What I love most about my job is meeting the incredibly friendly people that have chosen Portland as their home. I couldn't be happier than to be working here in our wonderful city of roses. Let me help you find a house 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!
