Lee Mather Company, Realtors - A Great American Story
Established over fifty years ago, Lee Mather Company, Realtors is the oldest surviving Real Estate company in Coronado. The story of Lee Mather Company is one of a small family business that has prospered due to its employees’ commitment to customer service and professional expertise. “When people come to Lee Mather Company, they know that they will be welcomed as friends and that they will be exposed to some of the most competent salespeople in San Diego,” says co-owner Tom Riddle.

The company’s founder, Lee Mather, was born ten miles outside of Grinnell, a town in rural Kansas. Throughout the Depression era, Mather worked on a farm to help support his family and completed his education in a one-room school. After graduation, Mather enlisted in the Navy to fight in World War II. Following his return from the war, Mather settled in San Diego, where he began a thriving career in Real Estate.

In 1953, after only seven years in the field, Mather opened the doors to his own Real Estate office in Coronado, where it stands to this day. In the following years, Lee Mather Company has remained a family-owned business that prides itself in offering exemplary customer service. “Nine of Lee Mather’s children, step-children, and grandchildren have at some point or another worked here at the office,” says co-owner and daughter Debbie Riddle.

In 2002, the National Association of Realtors honored Mather by naming him Realtor Emeritus. This rarely awarded honor was presented in recognition of his 57 years as a Realtor, his generous service to his customers, and his competence and expertise in the field.

From its humble beginnings in rural Kansas to its continued success as the oldest Real Estate company in Coronado, Lee Mather Co. is truly symbolic of the American Dream.

President and co-owner Mike Herlihy knows exactly what has allowed for the company’s lasting success over the years: "We’re not just selling houses. We’re building and maintaining long-term business relationships. That can only be done by keeping our clients’ needs ahead of our own.”
