Bilingual marketer and advertising guru.
How it all started
Prior to entering the world of real estate, Nancy Lee enjoyed a long and successful career in advertising and marketing in Toronto and Montreal. She joined Cossette Communications right out of Laval University and after just a few years in the advertising world, Cossette promoted her to Vice-President of Direct Marketing for their newly formed division in Toronto. Nancy Lee’s leadership and successes led to her being elected to the Cossette Board of Directors, a position offered to only a select few. It wasn’t long before the entrepreneurial bug bit and Nancy Lee made the bold move to start her own agency, Graffiti Direct & Interactive; a pioneer in the use of emerging technologies in marketing communications. Eight years later opportunity knocked and she couldn’t resist. She returned to playing a senior strategic role and for the next decade or so, Nancy Lee guided the advertising efforts of a number of leading Canadian brands. This stage of her career culminated with an appointment that drew her back to her native Quebec and allowed her to indulge her favourite pastime–travel. As the senior executive responsible for Air Canada’s advertising efforts at Marketel/McCann-Erickson, Nancy Lee was responsible for rebranding the airline’s advertising and implementing their visual identity in 20 countries.
While managing her marketing career, Nancy Lee also made time to pursue a second passion—real estate. Over the course of the last 20 years, Nancy Lee has overseen the purchase, renovation and selling of real estate projects in Montreal, Stratford and Toronto. This interest eventually inspired her to take her career in a new direction and become a licensed real estate agent, a profession that allows her to merge her wealth of marketing experience, negotiating abilities and interpersonal skills with her enthusiasm for property investing.
Fully bilingual, in English and French, Nancy Lee provides her clients with a unique perspective and understanding of the real estate buying, selling and marketing process. When not assisting her clients Nancy Lee is either off exploring another part of the world, entertaining friends and family or indulging her other guilty pleasure— discovering the city’s latest restaurant find.
