Biography

Specializing in Office, Healthcare & Industrial Sales and Leasing

Elias Porras, SIOR serves as Principal with Lee & Associates South Florida. Elias is a Commercial Real Estate Professional and Creative Dealmaker with over 33 years of experience in leasing, sales and acquisition of industrial and office properties in the Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach markets.

Elias has a strong belief in honor and integrity, which has made him a respected leader in the industry. “I considered myself an "Advisor" to my clients and this is done by developing a great working relationship that is based on trust and doing the right thing for the client” said Elias. He believes that the servicing of a long-term relationship does not end at the finalization of a transaction. A majority of my clients become good friends where we share experiences, good memories (both business and family) and have been known to drop a line or chase that illusive white ball around a golf course just to break things up a bit.

“Elias Porras is a strong believer in relationships that go beyond a transaction”
