The internet has pushed the industry to evolve, and smart retailers are taking advantage. Retail has a new purpose. The space is not necessarily used for transactions, it is used for an experience that is not available online. Customers want to get to know the brand, interact with products, get personal recommendations, and feel a part of something. Brick and mortar locations and e-commerce sites must work together to create an all-encompassing retail experience. It is opening up exciting possibilities, and Lee & Associates Retail Advisors are here to lead you into the future.

Our retail systems enables us to provide the most thorough market surveys and comparables, and our in-house research experts track market trends and translate statistical data into market insight so we are ahead of the curve. We study demographics, consumer spending patterns, traffic flow, transportation and access, and how each impacts and influences consumers and a customer base. We understand which brands fit which neighborhoods and how to position retailers to best support owner and developer objectives.


When we work with clients to support their brand strategy and business plan, our role is as a trusted real estate partner, advocate, and advisor. Beginning with careful and comprehensive market research, our team goes all out to ensure the success of your venture, with a strategically developed process that includes:


  • Market research
  • Expansion planning
  • Spaced surveys
  • Building evaluations
  • Guidance on permitting
  • Construction management
  • Lease negotiations
  • Lease audits
  • Acquisition/Disposition


  • High level space planning on new projects and repositionings
  • Marketing strategy
  • Targeted tenant outreach
  • Financial modeling
  • Lease negotiations
  • Representation on renewals/expansions

Through it all we deliver our services with a personal approach that emphasizes relationship over process. Although we have the vast resources of a large national brokerage firm, we do not operate like a corporate machine where, once clients are signed, they are tossed into a big pool, with junior brokers doing all the work. Our Lee & Associates Retail Advisors takes personal responsibility for every client – from taking calls, participating in meetings, showing space, and executing all of the work.
