Luke Hudson Industrial Buildings



Luke is a Principal and a top producer at Lee & Associates – Orange, Inc. He specializes in working with industrial building buyers, sellers, landlords, tenants and investors in North Orange County and the surrounding submarkets. After spending less than three years as an Associate, Luke became a Principal at the Lee & Associates - Orange office in record time since its inception in 1983. Luke's worth ethic, determination, affability and his ability to handle adversity are what make him a top producer at the Lee & Associates' Orange Office. Prior to joining Lee & Associates, Luke was a Major League Baseball pitcher. He was drafted out of the University of Tennessee in the fourth round by the Colorado Rockies. After four seasons, he was traded to the Cincinnati Reds where he reached the Major Leagues in 2002. He then pitched for the Kansas City Royals from 2006 - 2009. Unfortunately, a second shoulder surgery ended his career and he joined Lee & Associates within four months of retirement. Years of working his way up the baseball system trained him well in the importance of hard work and commitment. The competitiveness and drive that propelled his baseball career are also what make him so valuable to his clients. Additionally, Luke has established a solid reputation amongst competing brokers that enables him to get deals done for his clients and obtain market intelligence before most other brokers are aware.
