LEE & ASSOCIATES WELCOMES THREE EXPERIENCED OFFICE SALES AND LEASING PROFESSIONALS TO THEIR TACOMA OFFICE
February 16, 2021 (Seattle, WA) - Lee & Associates Commercial Real Estate Services, the largest broker-owned commercial real estate firm in North America, is pleased to announce the addition of three seasoned brokers to its growing team. John Bauder, Harrison Laird, and Yeh-Hee Hahn, all formerly of CBRE, Inc., have joined Lee & Associates in its Tacoma office. Laird said of the move: “We are excited to be a part of the growing team at Lee & Associates. They have a strong, national platform with a tailored, boutique approach in each market. We feel that this move will provide us an opportunity to better serve our clients.” Bauder added, “We’re energized! Lee’s client-first approach and team mentality is a great fit for us!”
Lee & Associates opened its doors in the Pacific Northwest in January 2017 with just one office and 3 brokers. According to Jim Bowles, regional President of Lee & Associates, Lee has since achieved significant, yet deliberate, regional growth. With a current total of 38 producing Brokers, Lee & Associates is serving the entire Puget Sound area from its now three offices in Seattle, Tacoma and Bellevue, the latter of which opened last month with the addition of the AGM brokerage team.
“With over 60 years of combined commercial real estate experience,” Bowles commented, “Bauder, Laird and Hahn’s real estate careers have helped shape the office, retail, and investment markets in the South Sound. The three brokers will really help to round out our team of veteran brokers in Lee’s Tacoma office.”
Bauder applauds Lee’s mission, stating “We have been very impressed with Lee & Associates’ commitment to creating a full service, customer focused team. We are also impressed with the fact that Lee’s local offices are owned and operated by a group of very experienced Partners who are passionately creating a great place to work while focusing on customer service.”
