Sarah Graham - Founder
Group One Real Estate
Thanks to the petroleum industry, Sarah relocated to CC in 1966 coming from a banking/real estate background in Tulsa OK. She obtained a real estate license with Alfred Edge. In 1971 Sarah opened a real estate office known as the Carriage Co. Realtors. In 1975, the company was incorporated with a dba of Group One Real Estate and built their current office located at 5302 Everhart @ Williams.
In spite of the pressures to join a franchise, Group One has remained independent, feeling that hometown, locally owned businesses are appreciated by the public. The company's emphasis has been to be most caring of their customers and concerned with the reputation and service provided. In order to provide nationwide and worldwide real estate affiliations, Group One joined what is now the relocation industry's largest referral network, Leading Real Estate Companies of the World. LREE reported sales in 2010 totaled in excess of $250 Billion.
Truly a real estate family of generations, daughter, Karen King entered the business in 1988 followed shortly thereafter by Myra Graham. Although still involved daily with the business, Jack and Sarah are pleased to be able to have two such capable family members to take the reins of the company as they head toward 50 years.
Group One has been a major force in Corpus Christi real estate with Sarah, Jack and Karen as well as three other of their REALTORs having served as Presidents of the Corpus Christi Association of Realtors. Sarah, Jack and Karen are the only family threesome to have been honored by their peers as Realtors of the Year plus many other awards and recognitions through service with the BBB, Chamber of Commerce, Corpus Christi Executive Association, Texas and National Realtor Associations. It continues to be a company philosophy to support and be involved in the community.
With this celebration, Group One Real Estate offers thanks and appreciation to the thousands of families who have helped us reach this 40 year milestone.
