Ryan Frey has been in the building and development industry for over 25 years starting with service as a Peace Corps volunteer in Bolivia designing rural water systems.  Ryan has built and developed various properties in Western Montana including multifamily buildings, single family specs, and industrial warehouse space.  His latest development was the design and entitlement of a 300 unit build for rent property, which was sold as a build project to another investor.  Ryan is excited to take this development experience forward into the Factory-Built Custom Home Community space as a founding member of Upslope Group, performing roles of Development and Finance Manager.

Keith Miller was born and raised in Missoula, and is a fifth-generation Montanan. He is passionate about building more housing for Montanans in a sustainable way to solve the housing crisis we are in. He has completed three development projects, which turned three single family houses into a total of eight units of housing. He managed all of the projects, and was the General Contractor on most of them. He is the President of the Missoula Real Estate Meetup, which gathers 40-60 investors and industry insiders to learn, collaborate, and network on a monthly schedule. As the central hub in this network, he has learned an enormous amount from this group, and has made invaluable connections. But his greatest strength is his attention to detail and his laser-focus on learning and growing his skills. He has two masters degrees, one of them from Harvard Extension School. He is married to his wonderful wife, Kira, and has two amazing sons, aged three and five. When he is passionate about something, he is continuously focused on learning as much as he can about this. Keith has been focused on developing a Workforce Housing Community since 2018. Keith is thrilled to take this his experience forward into the Factory-Built Custom Home Community space as a founding member of Upslope Group, performing roles of Director of Operations and Acquisitions.
