Griffin was born in Houston, Texas and has lived in Paradise Valley, Arizona since he was 8-years old.
Growing up locally, Griffin has developed a deep-rooted understanding of the markets in P.V., Scottsdale, Arcadia, and Phoenix. After receiving his bachelor's degree in sports business from the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University, Griffin decided to put his passion and hard work to the test by embarking on a career in real estate. Griffin is the son of ex-big league pitcher Mike Hampton of the Mets, Astros, Rockies, Braves and Diamondbacks. While watching his dad, he grew a passion for the sport, leading him to play 2-years of collegiate baseball. Griffin is also on the board of Fore The Kids (FTK), an Arizona-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping youth in the greater Phoenix area. Their focus will always be enhancing communal values and furthering child development to those who lack the resources to do so.
