Lee & Associates Northwest Launches New Investment Division

Lee & Associates, Seattle, JLL, Kinzer Partners

September 01, 2020 (SEATTLE, WA) – Lee & Associates, the largest broker-owned commercial real estate firm in North America, announced today the addition of four new brokerage agents to lead the firm’s Northwest investment division.

The team will consist of Stuart Williams, Adrienne Hunter, Alex Muir, and Elizabeth Schalka, all formerly of both JLL and more recently of Kinzer Partners. Williams, a well-known investment market expert, will lead the new Northwest investment division, which will focus on investment advisory services for both institutional and private capital clients, and provide the highest level of sophisticated customer service.

“We are strategically focused on institutional and mid-market investment properties. Our tailored approach provides our customers with curated marketing and advisory services, addressing the unique objectives of individual investment groups,” said Williams. “Legitimate and willing buyers are sizing up opportunities to invest in a market that promises to correct once the COVID-19 situation subsides. We intend to leverage our Lee & Associates team locally and across North America, as we help our clients assess their portfolios and determine the best path forward, including marketing their assets or purchasing properties both on and off-market.”

With the addition of Williams and his team of investment professionals, Lee & Associates Northwest continues its strategic growth initiative to extend into all commercial real estate sectors, including capital markets. The team will interface with Lee & Associates’ growing roster of talented professionals to better serve clients throughout the Puget Sound Region.

“When we first opened our office in 2016, we knew that we wanted to focus on all aspects of the commercial real estate brokerage business, including and especially the commercial investment arena,” said Jim Bowles, President of the Lee & Associates Northwest office.

The team has represented transactions totaling over six billion throughout their careers, and each bring unique perspectives and career histories to their roles. Williams as a multi-year SIOR Broker of the Year, Hunter as a three-time NCAA rowing champion, Muir’s extensive work with diversity and inclusion, and Schalka’s upbringing in the PNW’s commercial real estate appraisal community.
