Meet Nick Papageorgiou & Chris Lee!
Nick Papageorgiou began his career in property management in early 2006 as part of a team managing more than 3000 units in San Francisco. He’s always been fascinated in the economics of the real estate market and after working in resident retention for a while he decided he wanted to master the art of the sale, taking a job as a leasing specialist for one of the largest Real Estate Investment Trusts on the West Coast. He quickly earned top recognition and sales awards and was promoted to the only Sr. Leasing Specialist in his portfolio, acting as a leader and mentor to his piers. After a short 6 months, he was promoted to a management position in the highly desirable Menlo Park, CA location. He has a knack for building and sustaining relationships, closing deals with with big names such as Facebook and Stanford University Housing.
Always looking for new challenges, he decided to start his own Property Management firm so that he could help investors maximize their profit while still providing top notch customer service to residents. “I wake up every morning excited that I have the opportunity to make someone smile. I love telling investors how much their investment is making and I love providing our residents with a place they can call home. I’m in the business of changing lives.”
Introducing: Chris Lee.
Chris got his first start in Bay Area real estate in 2004 with The Mark Company, one of San Francisco’s leading urban residential marketing and sales companies, as a key member of numerous sales teams specializing in high-density developments.
In 2007 he became a Sales Manager for Polaris Group (now known as Polaris Pacific) overseeing sales for a mixed-use development grossing over $70M in San Francisco.
With years of front-line sales experience in hand and hundreds of sales under his belt, Chris had the opportunity with Paradigm Real Estate Solutions to bring his expertise abroad in such places as Australia, Cancun, Hawai’i and several regions along the Western United States. At Paradigm, Chris managed a team of senior real estate professionals responsible for implementing proprietary CRM software and training sales teams at various high-rise developments and luxury resort communities.
When the housing market began to turn for the worse, Chris decided it was an opportune time to round out his skills by working as a Leasing Specialist for BRE, one of the country’s largest publically traded REIT’s. It is here at a 400+ unit community in thriving Foster City where he honed his property management skills and knowledge. Chris quickly learned that anything and everything happens when you combine 400+ apartments with 1,000+ residents and discovered the importance of providing people with a vibrant and flourishing home environment.
Away from work Chris can mostly be found spending quality time with his wife, Karyn, and daughter, Karyssa, or trying to squeeze in as many 49ers, Sharks, Giants and Warriors games as possible. Not to mention 18 holes here or there.
