Our Story

Our company’s early beginnings were in the redevelopment of Vancouver’s historic Gastown area starting in 1967 and was incorporated as Town Group Realty Ltd. in 1970. In 1997, Town Group Realty became an affiliate of J.J. Barnicke Limited, which grew to become Canada’s largest independently owned commercial real estate firm. In 2007, J.J. Barnicke was acquired by global firm DTZ and we rebranded as DTZ Barnicke.

As DTZ formed a new alliance a few years later, our company announced a move to join US-based Lee & Associates in January 2016. Lee & Associates Vancouver is the first Canadian office in the largest broker-owned commercial real estate firm in North America. The company’s reach also extends to Europe through a strategic alliance with Gerald Eve, a firm of international property consultants based in the UK.

Throughout the past five decades, our team of real estate professionals have represented buyers and sellers as well as landlords and tenants alike in the primary asset classes of industrial sales and leasing, retail sales and leasing, office leasing, land sales and investment sales.

We believe that developing long-term relationships with our clients is key to our mutual success.  This principle combined with our extensive experience and market knowledge allows Lee & Associates Vancouver to truly add value and meet the needs of our clients.
