Premier Real Estate's own Ray Lee was recognized this week by the Los Angeles Downtown News at a cocktail reception held at The Reserve to celebrate its annual list of the people, places, and things deemed to be at the center of DTLA's evolution.  Usually one to forego pursuing public recognition for his successes, Ray earned a nod this year for Best Residential Real Estate Agent and was published in the newspaper's special edition as a reader favorite.  Given Ray's reputation for consistently exceeding his clients' expectations year after year, it's no surprise that Ray has earned the esteem and repeat business of his clients. With a healthy entrepreneurial spirit that propelled him and his Premier Real Estate cofounder Helen Le to open the first real estate office in South Park in 2003, Ray never allows himself to rest on his laurels despite his successes and has plans to expand the Premier Real Estate brand into other developing markets, including the Arts District.


Last week, Los Angeles Downtown News published its 30th annual Best of Downtown issue. On Tuesday, July 24, the newspaper held a party for the issue in the Historic Core nightclub The Reserve. More than 300 people came out to celebrate, including County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, new LAPD Chief Michel Moore, City Attorney Mike Feuer and former City Councilman Tom LaBonge. The event drew a wide cross-section of Downtown stakeholders, and attendees also included representatives of some of the more than 130 restaurants, bars, cafes, entertainment venues, stores, businesses and institutions that were voted as winners in the annual readers poll. 

Congrats to Ray!
