HOUSTON--()--A group of 17 industrial specialists of The National Realty Group (TNRG) have joined Lee & Associates Houston, giving the Houston office a firm clamp on local and regional brokerage in the industrial market.

“I am incredibly excited about what this means to our office and our national outreach”
