Scope of Service Experience

John specializes in investment sales (office, retail & multifamily sectors), land development, as well as office leasing. 

Background & Experience

John Gray co-founded Croxton Gray Commercial in January 2005 after 14 years as a top producer with another market-leading commercial real estate company. He merged his firm in the summer of 2010 and became a partner with NAI Earle Furman, LLC. He is actively involved in all segments of the real estate market including listing, sales, and consulting for office, industrial, retail, and investment properties.

In recent years the majority of his business has been that of representing corporate clients and local investors on their investment properties. This has included the sale of several major office parks, retail centers, industrial facilities, apartment complexes, and other numerous office and retail transactions. He also has successfully completed a wide variety of tenant representation services for companies such as Benefitfocus, Aaron Rents, Alltel Communications, OB Hospitalist Group, Jackson Marketing, Stanley Black & Decker, iHeart Media, Liberty Mutual, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), and others. In addition, he handled the sales, leasing, and ultimate disposition of a local businessman’s family trust portfolio consisting of 100+ properties.

John produced more than 45 million dollars in transaction volume in 2018. In addition, John was recognized in 2018 as one of the top 50 producers out of 7,000 brokers worldwide, for the NAI Global brand, and was the number 1 producer in the Greenville, SC office.

John takes a long-term approach in his business and is not a transaction-oriented broker, but conversely, is intent on building relationships with his clients to further enhance the profitability of those whom he serves.
