The Meadows Blueprint

Building communities and improving lives

This team is extremely transparent and very efficient.

I have invested in real estate for over two decades. I invest in my own properties as well as with a small group of choice individual operators. I chose to invest with Gideon and the GSH Group because I believe in their business model and like their hands on approach. The team is extremely transparent and is very efficient and proactive when it comes to information and timely reporting. I feel very taken care of if I ever reach out with questions. The concierge-like service they give to their investors has made me very comfortable becoming a repeat investor with them, many times over.
