Revitalizing communities since 1985

From humble beginnings, Wedgewood has grown into a dynamic real estate company investing in properties in 20+ states.
Our Beginning

It started with a hammer, and the rest is history.

Wedgewood's story began in Oklahoma, where a young Greg Geiser's love for building led him to construct forts, tree houses, and decks. He soon realized that his passion lay in revitalizing homes, breathing life into forgotten spaces, and giving families a fresh start.

After graduating from UCLA, Greg dreamt of a workplace that embraced innovation and collaboration. With the support of friends and mentors, he founded Wedgewood. Today, almost four decades later, we've expanded to over 20 states. We specialize in acquiring, renovating, and selling homes, opening doors to homeownership and real estate opportunities. We also provide exceptional tenant experiences in our apartment communities.

As Greg says, it all started with a hammer. Wedgewood's journey is a testament to the profound impact of small beginnings. Guided by our founder's vision, we continue to transform properties and lives with unwavering commitment to excellence.
