Get to Know E.P. Gates

Your Graham Realty Company

E.P. Gates Construction & Realty was founded by Gattis Gates in 1916, and was handed down to his son Earl Paris Gates. Eighty years later, in 1996, the company was bought by his grandson Chuck Talley. Together with his wife, Jennifer, the Talleys expanded the business into something much more diverse and dynamic than what the company started as. They have been active members in the Graham community throughout the years, serving on platforms such as the Graham City Council and Graham Historic Commission. They have also served on the Alamance County Historic Commission, Rivermill School Board, and Children's Museum of Alamance County. Additionally, Chuck currently serves as Chairman of the Graham Area Business Association and Jennifer as Treasurer.

As a company that has been around for a hundred years, we know the ins and outs of the business. We also provide a plethora of services, including:

Real Estate Broker, specializing in residential and commercial property management
Real Estate Investment
General Contracting
Site Development
Modular Home Sales

So whether you’re looking to invest in a new property, trying to sell your current property, or simply wanting to move in to a new home, E.P. Gates Construction & Realty is ready to work with you. Chuck and Jennifer have been working hard since 1996 to bring integrity and skill to every facet of the business. We have the team for you because of the diligence and intent that we put in to all that we provide. We take pride in this community, and even more pride in working with its people.
