Mark Updegraff - NYS Licensed Real Estate Broker
Mark C. Updegraff moved to Rochester, NY in 1997 to pursue his Bachelor's of Science from Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) in Imaging and Photographic Technology. As an undergraduate student he participated in co-operative work academic quarters for NASA, Pictometry, and as an independent 4x5 film photographer.
In 2003, after working for Kodak, Mark took a position in RIT's Center for Imaging Science and began his Master's studies in Color Science.
Mark took a position with ITT Corporation in 2009 where he worked on video quality metrics, end-to-end spectral imaging systems, and electro-optical systems for high altitude aircrafts.
In 2010, Mark decided to focus his efforts fully on his real estate redevelopment companies; Wedge Redux LLC, Ward Redux LLC, and Raze Capital LLC. These companies rehabilitate neglected properties into fully refurbished, market rate, rental homes in the greater Rochester area.
Mark now leads Updegraff companies in the development, management and brokerage of residential, commercial, and mixed-use real property. His vision for Upstate NY, real estate, and technology are evident through his plans and generated results.
