Lee started what is now Childers Sothebys International Realty (originally Lee Childers Real Estate) in September 1980, after renting the single-family home where the Childers Sotheby's Normandy Beach office is located. He then opened the Lavallette Office in 1983; Ortley Beach Office in 1987; and the Point Pleasant Beach Office in 2002. Childers Sothebys International Realty prides itself as being the leading Broker in this area of the Jersey Shore. We believe in quality, not quantity, as far as our agents are concerned. Lee does not hire agents indiscriminately. We always put the interest of our clients first. Lee is a graduate of Metuchen High School and Cal Western University. He and his wife, Wendy, have two children. In addition to his wife being an integral part of Childers Real Estate, his brother, Roy; his mother, Jackie, and her husband, Bill Bartel, are all active members of Childers Sothebys International Realty.
