What Makes Updegraff Unique?

We are locally owned, locally run, and locally staffed! Our founder, Mark Updegraff, loves the Rochester area. When faced with the choice of relocating to find a new job, or changing careers and remaining in upstate New York, Mark didn’t hesitate. As a result, he swiftly took steps to found his own real estate companies so he could stay in the Rochester area.

We are community based, community minded, and community focused.

As a result, this is what truly sets us apart from other companies in Monroe County. There is no corporate headquarters hindering our local involvement, dividing our loyalties, or telling us how to best run our Rochester based businesses without understanding the area. Because of this, we are better able to serve you.

We are locals, just like you.

Our Company

Here at Updegraff we pride ourselves on integrity. We are a full service real estate company. We look forward to assisting you on every step of your journey into real estate.

Wilmot Warrior Walk


In 2017, Updegraff staff was proud to participate in the Wilmot Warrior Walk for the first time. Because of our success, it has since become an annual company event.

With the help of our founder, our amazing staff, and our generous donors, Team Up(degraff) has consequently been able to raise over $1000 for the Wilmot Cancer Institute. They provide cancer care, cancer research, and cancer survivorship programs. We hope you will #TeamUp with us in 2019!
