What did you do yesterday?

Chris Grogan

Chris Grogan is a busy guy. From presentations on the mammoth Douglas Ranch development in the West Valley to spending time with his wife, Krystal and 11-month-old son Graham, a partner at El Dorado Holdings, gave us a rundown of his day. Grogan has been with El Dorado since 2011 after a tenure at CBRE. He also hopes to soon be able to try the Cajun food truck outside of the real estate development firm’s Scottsdale offices.

(This is the first of a ‘day in the life’ feature we will run weekly.)
