Our Founding

The company that would become Lee Auto Malls was co-founded by Joseph Lifshitz and Lewis Bernstein in Auburn in 1936. Starting with $1,100 in cash and three used cars on consignment, "Advance Auto Sales" quickly grew to be the largest DeSoto-Plymouth dealership in Maine.

Under the leadership of Lifshitz's son, Shepard "Shep" Lee, Lee Auto Malls grew to become one of Maine's largest car dealership groups. Today, we are Maine's No. 1 volume auto dealer, with 13 new car franchises and 15 used car stores. The company is third-generation family-owned and operated: Adam Lee serves as Chairman of the Board and Donald Lee is company president. Life-long family friend John Isaacson is the company CEO.

Our Philosophy

At Lee, we distinguish ourselves from our competitors with a fervent commitment to customer service. We understand we have to earn our customers' business every day by treating them fairly. We want the whole car-buying experience to be pleasant and we treat people well because we want our customers to return again and again.
