Lee Groom

Senior Vice President


Lee has been engaged in land development, real estate investment sales, and lease/purchase/build-to-suit negotiations for office and industrial clients in Metro Denver for nearly 30 years. His success in these areas is driven by his intimate familiarity with Metro Denver’s properties, along with his thoroughness, perseverance, and collaboration with professional partners to find the best locations and real estate solutions for his clients.

Lee’s success has been due to his premium level of customer service. He takes a full-service approach to serving his clients, taking them all the way through occupancy and beyond. After learning about their business and reviewing their current space situation, Lee provides each client with options on exceptional architects, contractors, lenders, attorneys, and other specialists, forming a personalized team providing due diligence and follow up on contractual and other matters.

As he puts it, “There are many potential pitfalls in a transaction, so I never leave anything to chance. I make sure that my clients have the best information and service from myself and other parties who specialize in all the critical details related to commercial real estate transactions—from acquiring or leasing the property to tax implications, construction, and relocation. My clients never feel abandoned or uncertain about their next steps and options.”

Lee began his career in commercial real estate after spending eight years with IBM in sales, sales training, and management. He served as a commercial broker for L.C. Fullenwider and went on to co-found Corporate Real Estate Advisors in 1991, personally focusing on land development as well as lease, purchase, and build-to-suit solutions for office and industrial clients—managing more than 200 transactions during his 25 years there.

Lee firmly believes that one of the benefits of his experience in commercial leasing and acquisitions is an enhanced awareness of a client’s needs—whether those needs are expressed or even unknown to the client. There are few situations he has not encountered, so he knows what to do to solve a problem or move the transaction along.


Over the past 25 years Lee has negotiated hundreds of tenant-represented leases, build-to-suits & user building purchases, which include:

▪ AT&T ▪ Brown Family Trust ▪ Chinese Languages Center ▪ Christopherson & Co. ▪ Colorado Medical Billing ▪ Conoco, Inc. ▪ Dynatax ▪ Echo Concepts, Inc. ▪ Geneos Wealth Management
