Prior to joining Lee & Associates, Steve had established and operated his own brokerage in upstate New York, following an illustrious decade-long tenure as one of the key members of Cushman & Wakefield's Upstate New York retail and industrial teams. In these roles, he served as a trusted advisor to both landlords and tenants, facilitating real estate transactions across New York State.
