Dynamic Team


ERA Malaysia would not have been able to achieve inroads into the real estate industry without the vision and dedication of a strong and dynamic team and leadership.  Among the people who have worked tirelessly to help ERA Malaysia achieve its goals and objectives are:


Chairman - YBhg Dato' Leslie Lee Kim Guan

A true entrepreneur, YBhg Dato’ Leslie Lee started his business empire with the founding of the New Bob Group. Armed with passion and perseverance, he steadily grew his business to include other areas such as car rentals, auctioning, and property management. Under his helm, New Bob Group reached great heights where the Company handled over 30,000 property transactions including the management of some 1,000 properties.


In 2006, he founded ERA Malaysia to help further his vision to elevate the level of professionalism in the real estate industry.  Apart from ERA Malaysia, he is also the founding chairman of the Malaysian Institute of Estate Agents (MIEA) where he served as the Vice President.  He was later made honorary member of MIEA in 2007.


YBhg Dato’ Lee also played an active part in the Real Estate & Housing Developers Association (REHDA), Penang where he was appointed as its assistant secretary from 2006 to 2010.


Due to the prominent role he played in the auction industry, YBhg Dato’ Lee was appointed the Patron of the Penang Auctioneers Association.  He was later bestowed the Real Estate Leadership Award by MIEA in 2012 as recognition for his immense contribution to the industry.


YBhg Dato’ Lee is also a well-known philanthropist.  In 2004, he founded D’Home, a non-government organisation that cares for the mentally handicapped, their caretakers as well as their family members.  The organisation is fully supported and financed by YBhg Dato’ Lee.



President – Dr. Lee Ville

Dr. Lee Ville is a medical doctor by training but decided to heed the call to become an entrepreneur instead.  He has held an executive role in ERA Malaysia since the organisation’s inception in Malaysia.  With his passion to see the real estate profession achieve a higher level of professionalism and stronger corporate identity, Dr Lee has taken the initiative to invest in the ERA System.  He has been at the forefront in setting the ERA Business System in motion.


He has since passed on the chief executive reigns to Christopher Lim and he currently adopts an advisory role to support ERA Malaysia.  Besides ERA Malaysia, Dr Lee Ville is also the Managing Director of a development arm of his family business.  With his active involvement in the Real Estate industry, he has been appointed Secretary of the Real Estate Housing Developers Association (REHDA) Penang for the 2012-2014 term where he also serves in the sub- committee of REHDA’s national planning and policies division.
