Charles Lester, Sr., co-founder

David began Lester & Lester Realty Advisors in 1982 with his father, Charles Lester, Sr.

Until his passing in 2007, Charles Lester was a guiding force in building the company. Charles also set the professional and personal standards the company still adheres to today.

For 25 years, after graduating from the University of Louisville School of Law, Charles worked as in-house counsel and lead attorney for several major corporations. His corporate career ended in New York City after serving as general counsel for Hertz Trucking.

Charles began his real estate career in 1972 with Hank Dickerson & Company. They were a prominent full-service realty firm with offices in Dallas and Houston at that time. Today Lester & Lester stands as a tribute to Charles’ strength, vision, dedication, and integrity.
