Lee & Associates Announces the Promotion of Conner Lee to Principal

Lee Began His Career at Lee & Associates in 2011 as a Junior Researcher and Since Then has been Involved in the Sales and Leasings of Over 3,000,000 Square Feet of Industrial Space

Lee & Associates, which specializes in providing exceptional commercial brokerage services of industrial, office, investment, multifamily, retail, and land, is pleased to announce the promotion of Conner Lee to principal.

Lee is an industrial agent that specializes in the leasing and sales of warehouse & manufacturing buildings, contractor yards, and flex properties. He joined Lee & Associates in 2011 as a junior researcher and received his real estate license in 2012. Then, Lee worked his way up to a runner under the guidance of Chris McClurg and Matt Fredrick, both successful veteran principals in the firm’s Industrial Division.

Lee was promoted to an associate in October of 2015 and was able to complete the requirements to achieve principal status in just over 5 years. He has been involved in the sale and leasing of over 3,000,000 square feet of industrial space during that time.

“Conner has been a natural fit in our office since he first started in our Research Department,” said Fred Darche, Managing Principal at Lee & Associates. “His natural personal skills, coupled with the determination he has shown to reach principal status, will serve him well to be very successful in this industry for many years to come.”

Lee was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, and earned a Bachelor of Arts in 2009 in Political Science from the University of Arizona. He also spent 6 months studying Spanish at the Universidad de Alcalá in Madrid, Spain. With a strong passion for industrial real estate and travel, he plans to expand his geographical expertise throughout the entire valley, as well as continuing to travel abroad as often as he can. Lee currently resides in Scottsdale, Arizona.

“Lee & Associates has always been a second home to me ever since my dad, Rick Lee, left CBRE for Lee & Associates back in 1996 thanks, in large part, to Bill Gosnell. I guess you can say, it was inevitable that I’d follow in his footsteps and come to love this business as much as my dad has,” said Lee. “The unique platform we have here encourages agents to work collaboratively, and most importantly, without the corporate red tape as other firms have. I am excited to continue servicing my existing clients, advising new ones, and strengthening the bonds I currently have here at Lee & Associates. Without them, I wouldn’t be where I am today. As a principal, I look forward to helping grow our firm by recruiting future incoming agents, as well as supporting the runners and associates who are already here.”
