|Gary Griffin is a lifelong Arkansas native born and reared in Little Rock. Graduate of Catholic High and University of Arkansas in Little Rock. After completing a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology he entered the business world and in five years he left corporate business to pursue his passion for real estate.
Founded The Griffin Company in 1978 with wife Jan whom he married in 1974. Members of First Baptist Church now Cross Church.
Gary founded the business with a desire to provide good, honest, fair dealing and professional service. In 2010 The Griffin Company Realtors purchased the Weichert Affiliate franchise to better enhance the company's marketing ability to match the changing real estate climate in the Twenty First Century and the residential division now operates as "Weichert Realtors-The Griffin Company."
The Company has other divisions that currently provide a full range of service that includes Residential sales; Commercial and Industrial Sales and leasing under "The Griffin Company Commercial Division"; rentals both managed and company owned; subdivision development with a sister company, "One Springdale, Inc." with over twenty five successful subdivisions throughout NWA; "Partner Construction Inc." is a builder of both custom and spec homes; "Cantrell-Griffin Business Brokerage" serves the niche of folks looking to buy or sell a business, and a school for real estate, "Clark Long School of Real Estate" which is dedicated to properly training others who desire a career in real estate.
When asked to comment on the secret for their successes, Gary said, "We believe in contributing to NWA in any way we can and are immensely grateful for the area's acceptance of what we have contributed and the blessings we have received over the last thirty seven years!" "When we started, we love the area but had no idea it would grow to be one of the best places to live and work in the entire US!"
