Rena's passion for real estate shines through when helping each of her clients. Real estate allows her to combine her favorite things: serving people, creating beautiful designs, and welcoming everyone to her hometown, Tampa Bay. It's more than a job; it's her lifestyle!
Meet Rena Upshaw-Frazier
Made in Tampa Bay
Rena's love for Tampa dates to before the city was an upcoming tech hub, a significant economic engine for the state, or attracting thousands of new residents a year. Although Tampa Bay was a bit smaller back then, it was still a melting pot that welcomed people from all walks of life. The uncharted growth of the region still bolsters that welcoming feeling that Rena has grown to love, which is why Tampa Bay continues to be the right choice for her.
The Tampa Bay community is just as crucial to Rena, and she makes it a priority to be an active leader within the community. Rena currently serves on the St. Joseph's–Baptist Hospital Board of Directors, HART Board of Directors, Hillsborough County Commission on the Status of Women (former Chair), and the University of South Florida Foundation Board of Directors.
When she's not selling Tampa Bay, she enjoys all it has to offer with her husband and four children.
Law Experience Meets
Real Estate Endeavors
Rena earned her bachelor's degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of South Florida, followed by her law degree from Stetson University College of Law. Rena spent over a decade helping individuals and businesses with real estate transactions and legal issues across Florida. Now, that experience helps her navigate even the most complex real estate and legal situations. Rena understands the demands of the corporate world and manages to buy or sell a home for her clients.
Architecture and Design,
A Match Made in Heaven
While Real Estate law has always been a passion for Rena, she has equally enjoyed the design and realized that it was the missing piece to her puzzle. Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, an American Architect known for changing how we build and live, Rena created her legacy. In 2020, she launched Greycliff Interiors, LLC, a design firm that helps her clients design their new homes and stage their properties to get the highest price possible.
