ORANGE, Calif. – September 14, 2017 – The Orange office of Lee & Associates is pleased to announce that Phillip DeRousse has been promoted from Associate to Principal.

DeRousse started his career working for the City of Santa Fe Springs, where he specialized in the Conditional Use Permit and Regulatory Permit process. He brought this knowledge with him in 2013 when he joined Lee & Associates Orange, where he has specialized in industrial real estate and become an expert in the southeast Los Angeles, mid-counties market. Phillip was born and raised in Whittier, California and uses this familiarity of the market to his advantage in his focus on the Mid Counties area.

As an industrial property specialist, DeRousse has completed over 80 transactions for nearly $56 million in total consideration. Clients include Polycoat Products, Venn Corp., Cailyn Cosmetics, Damac Products, Premier Packaging, Lane Seven Apparel, and Conquest Industries.

“Without a background in sales but a strong knowledge of the local market, Phillip has exceeded our expectations,” says Bob Sattler, President of Lee & Associates Orange. “He will add value to our sales force for many years to come.”

“Using a down-to-earth approach and being able to communicate with clients and fellow brokers one-on-one has helped me succeed in this tight real estate market,” says DeRousse.

Phillip DeRousse is a member of the Mid Counties Industrial group of Lee & Associates, which has over 18 years combined experience working with owners and users on industrial lease, sale and investment transactions throughout Los Angeles and Orange counties and surrounding markets.
