In 1979, Bill Lee’s vision became reality when he opened the first office of Lee & Associates in Orange County, California. Every Lee office is owned and operated by the real estate professionals, all of whom benefit from the sharing of real-time market intelligence that is vital to the delivery of superior commercial real estate services. The unique service platform has attracted some of the most experienced and talented real estate professionals in the industry, all of whom share Bill’s original vision of superior service through teamwork.

Lee & Associates offices offer a broad array of real estate services tailored to meet the needs of the company’s clients in each of the markets it serves. They include commercial real estate brokerage, property management, valuation, asset management and finance.

Now, the largest firm of its kind in North America. The company’s reach extends across the US, British Columbia and, most recently, to Europe through a strategic alliance with Gerald Eve.

Since 1979, Lee & Associates has been attracting the best and brightest in the industry who share an entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to delivering world-class service through local market expertise and state-of-the-art resources. Now a powerful organization of top professionals, the company enjoys its hard-earned reputation as a top tier international commercial real estate brokerage and integrated services provider.

Our structure makes our culture unique and attracts like-minded entrepreneurs who leverage their expertise to spur innovation and help Lee & Associates sustain a competitive advantage. As shareholders of the company this separates us from our competition and creates one common goal; to provide seamless, consistent execution and value driven market-to-market services to our clients.


At Lee & Associates our culture, which is driven by entrepreneurialism that is steeped in client services, has always attracted the best and brightest in the industry. Our core values, coupled with our professional’s expertise and knowledge, have always been the foundation of our success.

To ensure that our clients always receive the highest level of expertise and service, we believe that continued education and training are key. In addition to our annual Lee Summit conference, each year we host both online and small group training sessions focusing on continued education for our brokerage, integrated services, marketing, IT, and administrative professionals. Lee & Associates is home to more than 135 Society of Industrial and Office Realtors (SIOR) and 70+ Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designees.


Lee & Associates’ 501C-3 charitable organization, CompassionateLEE, was founded in 2019 and is focused on bringing people together to assist our Lee family members and others in our communities in times of crisis. Our goal is to provide the members of our organization with an opportunity to focus on helping others by extending a hand of support in our local communities during an emergency or wherever we see a chance that someone may need our help. We also raise money through Lee Offices fundraising events, and money raised goes towards offering support when emergencies arise and to other worthy causes outside of our own organization to do our part to make the world a better place.


One of our key values at Lee & Associates is ownership, real equity in the office that you participate in. We give each of our brokers the opportunity to become a principal in their local office. That principal/shareholder standing allows them to not only share in the profits of their local office, but it allows them to have a say in the direction of the company on a national basis.

Culture at Lee & Associates means a number of different things; it means the opportunity to be an owner of your local office, to participate in a profit pool at your local office, to invest in the growth of the company, to own real estate with partners in your company or through the Associates Equity Fund (AEF).

The difference at Lee & Associates is that our shareholders are our revenue producers, and it is our goal to return those profits in reward for their outstanding client services.


Lee & Associates’ offices offer a broad array of real estate services tailored to meet the needs of the company’s clients in each of the markets it operates, including commercial real estate brokerage, integrated services, and construction services.

With specialty practice groups in each of these disciplines, our professionals regularly collaborate to make sure they are providing their clients with the most advanced, up-to-date market technology and information.
