Testimonials for Graig Griffin, SIOR
Alex Monroe, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices | Utah Properties04/04/2017
Graig’s teachings go beyond real estate insights, shining a light on what truly moves us as humans. I came in with preconceptions about coaching, and left with the tools to leave my clientele inspired. While he has great ideas on how you might source this inspiration, Graig’s real prowess was in leaving me feeling personally inspired. As the source of my own marketing ideas I could see what makes my voice unique as a real estate professional.

Rich Shuman, Owner/Broker - The Heritage Group, Boulder City, NV03/24/2016
Well over 15 years ago I started in real estate and my first mentor and inspirational leader was Mr. Graig Griffin. He was a highly productive VP in our organization and regularly trained and coached the less senior agents like myself. I have always said that he possess one the smartest real estate minds around. His knowledge of the industry, practices, trends and technology is above all others. Graig is a dedicated and experienced professional operating always at the highest level. Away from the office I have always been impressed with his ability to achieve balance in his life, explore new experiences and live life to the fullest. Graig is a good friend and the brightest mind in the business…

Graig and I worked together at Keller Williams. He is extremely resourceful, professional and a great trainer. We served together at the brokerage on the Agent Leadership Council which consists of the highest performing agents. Graig constantly strives to learn new things and puts his all into whatever he does.
Dana Sparks, Realtor, Exclusive Listing - Malibu, CA02/11/2016
Graig offers the perspective of an agent who has actually mastered the things he teaches. Learning from a peer is vastly superior to someone just reading from a playbook. When you need help, he knows how and why of what to do, and you can work through creative solutions on the spot.

I’ve known Graig for over 5 years and interacted with him on many levels, including, multi-million dollar real estate transactions in residential and commercial, educational classes through our Board of Realtors and as the manager of one of the top real estate companies in Park City, UT; I have never met a person with more in-depth knowledge of the real estate industry along with the passion and skills to teach it effectively.
Kathy Vallee, Owner, The Vallee Gold Team - Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, Tucson, AZ07/23/2015
I found his experience with marketing a challenging property to be above and beyond what I have seen in my past 15 years of practicing real estate. I would recommend Graig Griffin to people who are looking for someone to take their business to another level.
