Sean Durkin entered the commercial real estate industry at an early age, becoming partial owner of an industrial building at the age of 15 using money he earned working construction and held positions with four commercial real estate companies (three during college as an intern) prior to joining Lee & Associates. His primary focus is serving Tenants and Landlords in the leasing, sales, and asset management of industrial, office, and retail properties in King and North Pierce County. In 2017, Sean earned his Master of Science in Real Estate (MSRE) at the University of Washington.
Sean’s education, background in brokerage, ownership, and construction offers a diverse skill set, strong work ethic, and creative thinking. This combination has served his clients well, offering diverse solutions to their challenges. His cut-and-dry method of analysis and loyalty make him a great asset to clients in their execution of both short and long-term real estate and business goals. As an owner and broker, he understands the importance of managing client/tenant expectations and maximizing property value. He provides asset management advisory services to his clients, going above and beyond a transactional broker working to meet client goals. Sean is deeply involved in the local commercial real estate community, both chairing NAIOP’s Property Challenge Committee, volunteering on NAIOP’s DL Committee and previously running NAIOP’s local South Sound Committee, putting on 10+ ‘south end’ focused networking, informative breakfast, property tour and fundraising events a year, with one event he co-runs raising over $70K annually for Big Brothers Big Sisters.
In his free time, Sean enjoys hiking, backcountry skiing year-round (he recently hit 84 consecutive months of skiing), fishing, boating, and construction projects.
