Lee Robinson has a deep, rich, and diverse real estate background. He is one of the very few Realtors that have helped over 2,000 families and individuals with their home, condominium, and investments transactions. There is not anyone more experienced in Cincinnati real estate. He was Rookie of the Year for the largest real estate company in Cincinnati in 1980 when interest rates were 18%. In 1986 he founded Robinson Realtors, the predecessor to Robinson Sotheby's International Realty. Lee has a keen eye when it comes to real estate, and he watches over his clients' goals and objectives like a hawk. Lee is well respected for his fair dealings and practicing the Golden Rule. He is an astute marketing tactician and a valued negotiator. One of his best strengths is listening and learning what his clients' goals are and then using his time, skill and resources to accomplish their goals. He is an experienced problem solver and has exceptional knowledge of finance, contracts, and building technologies. He has been one of the region's very top producers for almost 30 consecutive years and was also named "Realtor of the Year," an honor bestowed upon him by a committee of his peers.
Lee's father was a United States Air Force pilot, and his mother, Alis Rule Robinson, is a second generation Realtor. Lee's grandmother was the first woman Realtor in Cincinnati in 1934. In fact, his grandmother built the first condominium in Cincinnati and it stands today overlooking the Ohio River.
Beyond real estate, Lee has traveled much of the world and has an award-winning background in film, triathlons, and is a past national canoe champion.
