Lee & Associates, which bills itself as the largest broker-owned commercial real estate firm in North America, is opening an office in Toronto. It will be headed by Mark Cascagnette.
Lee & Associates CEO Jeff Rinkov says, “Toronto is one of the top 10 largest cities in North America, and Mark has unparalleled success, experience and knowledge of the Greater Toronto Area.”
Cascagnette has more than 28 years of diversified commercial brokerage and corporate real estate management experience, most recently as one of Cushman & Wakefield’s National Top 10 Brokers in Canada and its Top Industrial Producer in 2018.
“Lee & Associates provides the best, most entrepreneurial and progressive structure in our industry,” says Cascagnette. “We plan to become a regional commercial brokerage player and will recruit and train the best and brightest professionals in all service lines including industrial, office, land and investment sales. We are excited about tapping into Lee’s long-established operation in the U.S., and along with our Vancouver partners, will help build a strong Canadian presence.”
Established in 1979, Lee & Associates has grown its service platform to include offices throughout North America.
