About Wendy Lee
Since 2003 when Wendy Lee first joined Douglas Elliman, she has successfully become a trusted advisor to her clients in both the residential as well as the commercial real estate markets. Wendy’s extensive business background as a licensed real estate broker, small business owner, and an entrepreneur give her a unique investment perspective that is greatly beneficial to her clients. More importantly, Wendy has a deeper appreciation of market values, trends, and financial dealings, so integral to making a “smart” real estate investment. However, Wendy also has an understanding of the personal lifetime economic decisions that her clients are making and the ways in which these decisions impact their everyday lives. Bottom-line, Wendy’s professional approach always puts the client first with an eye toward assessing the investments that best serve their particular needs. No transaction is too large or too small, whether from renting a studio to purchasing or selling a multimillion-dollar property to finding a suitable commercial space –each and every client experiences the same focused drive and tenacity.
