Graham Updegrove started his career in real estate during 2007 working for Sunrise Mortgage & Investment Company, a full-service commercial mortgage banking company that secures financing for retail, office, industrial, multi-family and special use developments. He functioned primarily as a loan-servicing correspondent and was ultimately responsible for servicing a loan portfolio of over $750 million across the country.
In 2009, Graham earned his Broker’s License and in 2011, Graham turned his efforts toward the residential market in San Luis Obispo County focusing primarily on buyer/seller representation, consultation, investments and foreclosures. His success has been attributed to hard work, dedication and providing local, honest expertise to his clients. This dedication has led him to being one of the most active and knowledgeable agents in the area, having successfully closed over 50 transactions in the last 3 years alone. Graham has been involved with the San Luis Obispo Association of Realtors in numerous ways and was recently recognized as the 2015 Realtor of the Year. He currently sits on the SLO Association of Realtors Board of Directors, is the 2016 Treasurer/Secretary and chairs the Local Government Relations Committee.
Graham’s success is attributed to his energetic personality and pursuit to do what’s best for his clients. His commitment to professionalism has helped develop strong relationships with local services providers in the real estate industry and he looks forward to what the future holds.
Graham graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2007, with a Bachelors Degree focusing on Business Economics and International Relations. Graham spent his junior year studying at both the University of Concepcion and the University of Chile in Santiago where he took classes with Chilean students. He is grateful to have been able to travel and experience the wonders of South American culture. Graham also regularly attends California Association of Realtor conferences and workshops to stay informed of the most recent laws, regulations and technology that help him better serve his clients.
Graham was born and raised in San Luis Obispo and has a passion for real estate and architecture. He currently resides in downtown San Luis Obispo and thoroughly enjoys the outdoors. He can often be found exploring the local hiking trails, getting away for a backpacking trip or hitting the slopes during the winter.
