Grant Waugh - REALTOR®
Grant’s interest into the world of real estate began at a young age. His father was a skilled carpenter and his stepdad is a custom home builder who is still an active and licensed General Contractor in Atlanta. He was exposed to new home construction and high end rehabs and saw many people in his life find success in real estate.
Fast forward to 2012 when Grant graduated college at the University of West Georgia with a degree in Communications and a minor in Business Management. Through networking, he found a job as an IT contractor at Cox Communications, one of the countries largest private companies. It was here that he saw the value that owning a business holds and started a consulting business. For the next several years Grant built wealth, learned about business and started absorbing as much knowledge into real estate investing as he could. He listened to podcasts, attended real estate seminars and classes, and began networking. Grant decided it was time to quit the corporate job in search of a full time career in real estate. He got a job in sales for a local brewery start up which gave him a more flexible schedule to invest in real estate and helped sharpen his sales and negotiation skills.
In 2016 Grant purchased his first property in East Atlanta. This property was a short sale which he bought and renovated as a house hack. As he continued investing, Grant quickly saw the value in becoming a licensed real estate agent.
Grant became a licensed agent and Realtor in 2019. After gaining his license he carefully researched brokerages and met with different brokers and investors around the city until he found Powerhouse Real Estate. Powerhouse stood out as one of the leading investor focused brokerages in the area. Many investors and agents he listened to speak at real estate meetups were agents at Powerhouse. He found that the brokerage encourages investing the right way and that the agents there were successful investors in many different facets of real estate.
Grant is now the Acquisitions Manager for Powerhouse and works directly with his broker Amy Ransdell to buy, sell, list and invest in properties in the Metro Atlanta community full time.
