Following a successful professional soccer career in California and South America, Justin Myers decided to dive into the real estate business, drawn by the abundant opportunities and thriving office market in New York City. Real estate brokerage runs in Myers’ family, with both of his parents working in the commercial and residential sectors of the industry. Since joining Lee & Associates NYC as an associate in 2012, Myers has built extensive market knowledge, diverse client relationships and leadership skills. As an executive managing director at the firm, he specializes in tenant representation and office leasing in New York City with clients ranging from the financial services, technology, medical and legal industries.

Early in his career, Myers focused on becoming an expert in tenant representation in Soho. Anticipating the area’s growth in the office and retail markets, he familiarized himself with notable buildings and established tenants. Myers earned the firm’s top producer award four times. One of his most notable transactions during the pandemic was a series of deals with HelloFresh in a partnership that began in 2019 when Myers and his team represented the company in a 50,000-square-foot office lease. Since then, Myers has grown the relationship into multiple deals, securing several leases throughout the country, including 350,000 square feet of industrial space in Dallas, 200,000 square feet of industrial space in New Jersey, and 10,000 square feet at Brooklyn’s Industry City.

Myers’ colleagues describe him as a driven, intelligent, personable and resourceful team leader who consistently motivates and inspires his peers. In addition to closing deals, he mentors junior staff, making himself available to answer questions, offer advice and provide support within the firm.
