Tory Graham is dedicated to service, innovation and integrity. He has strong interpersonal skills and is a great listener which gives him uncanny insights into how to help his many and varied clients. Tory’s cutting-edge vision has helped him survive three decades in the real estate industry. He was acquiring and building award-winning companies at a time when many others lost their businesses.
Tory was raised in a strong military family with great emphasis on service. His father’s career took the family throughout Europe and to the Middle East in service of our country. What Tory learned and observed in his travels gave him a keen interest in world politics, history and business. It also translated into focused, innovative ideas for new companies and his clients and partners.
After graduating from the University of Kansas in 1986, Tory followed his father into the real estate business as a broker. In 1994, he attended Floyd Wickman’s Sales Skills Academy. Tory credits much of his success to Floyd and his insights into human nature. In 2004, Tory created his first real estate company, Graham-Welch and Associates, LLC (GWA). His fledgling company became the fastest growing real estate company in the Kansas City Metropolitan area for three years straight.
In the economic downturn of 2008, Tory had the foresight to acquire a real estate resale company. Weichert Realtors Graham Welch (WRGW) didn’t just survive in a down economy; it thrived. WRGW was among the top 20 Weichert franchises in the country for five years running, eventually receiving the top honor of Premier Office.
Tory’s partnership with Gus Salman spans more than two decades. The pair has developed several successful businesses together and has been building new homes for several years. Their latest venture, the Graham Salman Real Estate group, continues the focus on new home developments. Tory and Gus have assembled a team of realtors dedicated to service and integrity – the same service and integrity that came from Tory’s upbringing in a military family.
Tory is the proud Dad of three sons and Grandfather to two grandsons. In his time off, you can find him listening to music and shooting pool. He also loves to dance and sing; Tory describes himself as “a party waiting to happen.”
