Franklin Street welcomed David Lee, an industry veteran with over 37 years of experience in commercial real estate. As Senior Director of Office Leasing Services, Lee will focus on office landlord representation throughout the Central Florida market, while also supporting the firm’s tenant representation business.
“Our Orlando team has been growing quickly on all fronts, from industrial to retail and now our office leasing business with the addition of David,” said Kurt Keaton, President of Real Estate and Management Services for Franklin Street. “David’s depth of experience and long-term relationships in the Central Florida market will add significant value as we continue to grow our office leasing portfolio and help bring new tenants to the area.”
A multi-disciplined real estate specialist, Lee brings extensive experience working in the office sector, having represented clients in leasing, sales, asset management and development. He began his career as an office broker with Cushman & Wakefield before going on to expand his areas of expertise at Mid-South Realty and the Allen Morris Company. In 1997, Lee founded his own company, Atlantic Realty Services, Inc., where he concentrated on the development of office and industrial properties and general brokerage services.
Most recently, Lee served as Senior Vice President of Realty Capital Advisors, where he focused on office and retail leasing and sales, as well as site selection and analysis. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Mercer University.
“Franklin Street, with its track record of growth and success, feels like the right place to be as the office market recovers and is met with new opportunities,” said Lee. “This is a highly motivated team with limitless potential, and I look forward to what we can accomplish together.”
