As Founder & CEO of boutique Real Estate firm MarketPass Realty, Paul Lee brings nearly a decade of industry experience to his goal of creating one of the premiere real estate firms in the Bay area of Northern California. His company represents both Buyers and Sellers across the San Francisco Peninsula.

Paul became a Realtor in 2007, following a lengthy and highly successful career in software engineering—working on numerous high profile projects for Fortune 500 companies in banking and finance—through which he was able to parlay expertise in business management, issues management, consulting and problem solving. He worked with Coldwell Banker in the Bay area for 7 years, representing buyers, sellers, banks and investors in residential markets and new homes sales. Paul also provided free post sale service to guide investors regarding finding the right tenants and entering into lease agreements.

With a mindset of continuous improvement, he has pursued advanced education that led to obtaining his Real Estate Broker license. With a passion for maximizing value with minimal costs to clients, Paul decided to launch MarketPass Realty in 2014. Thanks to a start-up company mind set, he is continuously striving to find new ways to streamline workflow with clients and other business partners through creativity and innovation.

Paul earned his Master’s degree from the University of London, and began his career in the Information Technology sector in Hong Kong and then Sydney, Australia. He relocated to the Bay area of Northern California in 1992 and started a software engineering consulting business that has sustained for 20+ years.

He has earned clients’ trust and repeat business because he always provides customers with the best quality service that constantly exceeds their expectations. And now, with MarketPass Realty, he is able to leverage technology and tools to provide clients with a highly rated customer experience.

In his free time, Paul enjoys traveling, digital photography and camping.
