Tyrell Gray graduated from Utah State University with a dual Bachelors Degrees in Economics and Business Finance. Once he graduated, he managed his first business, a flooring business that he and his partner took from a startup company to a thriving company bringing in over $550,000 thousand in sales annually, due to marketing, innovative business ideas, and capturing market share through great products at low prices.
Tyrell then moved into the financial arena working for a branch of HSBC - the third largest bank in the world. As one of its account executives he quickly rose through the ranks and realized an affinity for real estate finance. He was recruited from HSBC to manage a local mortgage company closing over $3,000,000 in real estate in his first year. Tyrell was again recruited to appear as a guest speaker and expert explaining the intricacies of real estate and the mortgage industry, by several local mortgage, seminar and financial companies.
Tyrell moved into real estate full time in 2003 by building custom homes and developing properties during the real estate boom experienced across the United States, which he continues to do to this day. It was during this period that he became associated with Brad Hess, a friend from High School, and began investing in rapidly growing area of distressed properties in the Fall of 2007. During that time, they developed a business system and were able to purchase over $150,000,000 in REO properties in a two-year period.
