Lee & Associates Oakland Joins The News Funnel


OAKLAND (April 2, 2014) – The News Funnel announced that Lee & Associates Oakland has joined the fast-growing site’s news distribution platform. Apart from attracting some of the highest profile companies in the industry, the site also plays host to several thousand real estate professionals who utilize its services to create free, customized news feeds.

In 1979, founder Bill Lee established the first Lee & Associates office, driven by the unique idea to turn real estate brokers into company owners or “shareholders.” Bill Lee’s guiding philosophy was that clients’ interests would be best served by a collective team effort from experienced sales agents who had an ownership stake in the privately held organization, earned through exceptional performance and ethical practice. Not merely employees, profit-sharing Lee owner/agents would strive to create a sense of shared responsibility and cooperation throughout the organization, and would encourage an orientation toward long-term client relationships and business solutions. Since then, Bill Lee’s profit sharing concept has proven enormously successful, and has fueled the explosive growth of many group offices across the country. Lee & Associates clients enjoy a comprehensive range of specialized commercial real estate services including: Industrial, Office and Retail Property Sales & Leasing; Real Estate Investment Consulting; Property Acquisition and Disposition; Tenant Representation and Relocation; Property and Portfolio Evaluation and Market Research.

Since launching in June 2012, The News Funnel has established itself as the largest hub of real estate news and related content. By aggregating so many pertinent news sources together in one location, The News Funnel allows real estate professionals to save a substantial amount of time, while also enabling them to create a feed of information specifically tailored to their own unique preferences. The News Funnel simultaneously scrapes through thousands of online feeds daily, searching for relevant content. The News Funnel currently serves 31 primary U.S. markets with plans to expand geographically throughout 2014. For more information, go to
