Years of Trust, Confidence, & Experience

Our Beginnings

Griffis Realty Investments began in August 1977 in Orange, CA.  Jack Griffis, Founding Broker, quickly became interested in the IRS Sec. 1031 Tax Deferred Exchange provision and found it most helpful in assisting his commercial real estate clients in achieving a higher rate of return and higher cash flow due to the delayed payment of Capital Gain taxes.

In 1995, Jack relocated to Las Vegas to expand Griffis Realty Investments, LLC. Years later, his sons Joe and Jeff joined the team. They specialized in the sales and leasing of commercial properties, primarily Industrial space.

Always most interested in achieving high rates of return and cash flows for investors, Jack developed his own Excel based financial analysis program to compare income producing properties and assist investors in achieving maximum performance. It’s called APODplus (Annual Property Operating Data), and the plus to denote much more information.

Jack established a competitive brokerage built on integrity and the highest level of client care.

Today, Griffis Realty Investments is also known as GRI Commercial and is continuing the traditions of the past in terms of maintaining high integrity during each transaction, high profits for its clients, and a high level of expert and personal service.

Our Team

Jack Griffis





Jack Griffis became a licensed real estate broker in 1977 in the state of California. After three months he entered the commercial and apartment markets not only as an agent, but also as a principal. Shortly thereafter he specialized in IRS Sec. 1031 tax deferred exchanges and has extensive experience in this field, having pursued this type of transaction almost exclusively for seventeen years.
Realizing that new & experienced investors, as well as real estate agents, want a simple way to know whether or not a property would be a good financial investment, and what the price should be, Griffis decided to write a simple, easy to read financial analysis program that would have all the important information. That program is used for the benefit of Griffis’ clients and is sold online to agents and investors at

In Nevada, Griffis specialized in commercial property transactions with an emphasis on the industrial market. He has passed parts of the prestigious CCIM (Certified Commercial Investment Member) program.  God called Jack in 2020, and he left a solidly built company to continue serving clients at the highest level that reflects his founding core-values and company culture.
