Professional Experience

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 200 transactions valued at more than $115 million in the last ten years. Graham has been involved with the San Luis Obispo Association of Realtors in numerous ways and was recognized as the 2015 Realtor of the Year. He most recently served as the 2018 President for the SLO Association of Realtors and is currently a member of the Association's Local Government Relations Committee. His commitment to professionalism has helped develop strong relationships with local services providers in the real estate industry and he looks forward to helping clients with their real estate needs.


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. Graham has recently taken up brewing beer and learning more about local politics. He volunteered time with Habitat for Humanity of San Luis Obispo County on their Community Development Committee (2012-2017) and served as the 2017 President of the Central Coast Realtors Charitable Foundation, spearheading a $50,000 "Agents for Change" capital campaign to benefit the new homeless services center at 40 Prado in San Luis Obispo. Graham is a member of the San Luis Obispo Chamber of Commerce and joined many other respected business leaders participating in Leadership SLO Class XXV.
