about us

Our Story

Gimme Shelter Equity was founded in 2015 by Ed Modzel, a Navy veteran, Chief Engineer for a 10-time Emmy Award-winning TV show, and real estate investor with over 40 years of experience. While Ed’s experience in real estate spans across multiple sectors, GSE focuses squarely on multi-family housing investment management.

Our singular focus on multi-family property is inspired by the sector’s incredible track record for offering reliability, flexibility, and cash flow. By leveraging our knowledge of market trends combined with our ability to forge strong connections between investors, property managers, and tenants alike, we are in a unique position to maximize your ROI while providing quality housing for families across the country.

what we do


Our investments range all the way to time and knowledge, and we are happy to share both. Check out our podcast appearances, learn more about our speaking engagements, and check out our other Resources.


Navigating the multifamily space is only as smooth as the connections you’ve made. We value real person-to-person connection, and thrive on building relationships.


New multifamily real estate investment opportunities are becoming available regularly. To be first to know of new deals, Contact Us to join our network today.


Some multifamily real estate groups focus on a narrow piece of the pie. Gimme Shelter Equity has the experience and knowledge to tackle a variety of deals to keep your portfolio diversified.
