Upton Gray Properties, LLC.
I am a 3rd generation realtor and have always had a passion for real estate. You can say it’s in my blood. My grandmother owned Century 21 Greystone for over fifteen years where I would often work during the summers. After my grandmother’s passing in 2008 my mother took over the brokerage firm and renamed it Lonestar Realty. I attended Southwestern Assembly of God University specializing in business administration. After returning home from college I decided to get out from under my family’s wing with great success. In 2001 I went to work for a commercial security firm as the Human Resource Manager where I oversaw over one hundred employees and managed three direct reports. My specialty was Employee Relations, Benefits, and Training. In December of 2008 I was hired on at a Adobe Equipment, a heavy construction equipment company, as the Human Resources Director. Here I built the entire human resources department from scratch. During my tenure I oversaw over 380 employees in 9 different locations, and managed three direct reports. I provided leadership, consultation and strategic direction. After five years with the company the owners decided to sell for a substantial gain. One of the reasons being how well the company was operated. While employed at Adobe I met Bryan Upton who rekindled my passion for Real Estate. I decided the time was right to take the skills I learned in the human resources field and apply them to the family business. I have two boys, ages 10 and 16(I had them when I was 8 :). I enjoy going out to dinner and trying out different restaurants around town. . . especially Italian. I love to stay in shape by playing Tennis, working out and running.
