In 1979, Bill Lee founded the first Lee & Associates office. Driven by a unique idea that would turn real estate brokers into company owners or “shareholders,” Lee's guiding philosophy was that the clients’ interests would be best served by a collective team effort from experienced sales agents who had an ownership stake in the privately-held organization, earned through exceptional performance and ethical practice.
Not merely employees, profit-sharing Lee owner/agents would strive to create a sense of shared responsibility and cooperation throughout the organization, and would encourage an orientation toward long-term client relationships and business solutions.
With locations across the nation including California, Colorado, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, South Carolina, Texas, and Wisconsin, the Lee & Associates group of independently owned and operated companies is the largest agent-owned and managed full-service commercial real estate services provider in the United States.
The Company’s market leadership is founded on the ability of Lee & Associates’ people to understand, select and deliver these services for the maximum benefit of clients. We are committed to providing capabilities and services that are clearly and consistently the best, as judged by our clients.
