As a real estate services partnership, our team provides strategic and customized real estate solutions for occupants, implemented through our global platform, without conflict.
As both business owners and real estate professionals, our leadership team has a personal understanding of the impact a real estate decision has on an organization's operations and profitability. We also understand how it can impact an individual's career.
We value our clients equally and have the flexibility to scale our services to provide the resources necessary to implement solutions ranging from a onetime local real estate transaction to managing all aspects of a global real estate portfolio through our comprehensive services platform.
We aren't your representative, we are your partner. Our clients typically view our advisors as an extension of their internal resources, often times integrating our team to the point that our company brand becomes invisible to their internal customers.
Home to some of the largest companies such as Abbott Laboratories, All State, Boeing, Caterpillar, McDonalds Corporation, Sears, Tribune Company, United Airlines, Walgreens and The Wm. Wrigley Jr., Company, Chicago is not only a vital economic nucleus for the entire country but also an international hub for the banking, transportation, business services, consumer products, and trade markets. Our market tends to be far less exposed to variations in the economy as compared to other major metropolitan markets, mostly because it is not oversaturated and is well diversified. Chicago is home to a vibrant office market consisting of over 400 million square feet of space as well as the national hub for the production, distribution, and supply chain economy consisting of 1.2 billion square feet of floor area.

Our industrial and supply chain specialists apply Cresa's proven methods and integrated services to locate, acquire, and develop industrial and logistics space, always striving to reach an outcome that exceeds the client’s requirements. We focus on helping our clients make real estate decisions that create leverage and lead to a competitive advantage. By solely representing the interests of tenants, Cresa is uniquely qualified to advise clients and advance their best interests in order to increase efficiency, speed time-to-market, improve service levels, and improve profitability.
A warehouse isn’t just real estate. It’s a crucial link in your supply chain. As a pivot point for moving your goods around the country, its location cannot be haphazard.
And yet, warehouse space that truly fits your needs may be in short supply — at any given time, your options will most likely be limited.
Our consultants are known for taking a more holistic view of your entire supply chain. We know how the right real estate can add vital flexibility to your logistical needs, so we look beyond just rent to the equally important costs associated with transportation, fuel, and labor.
In short, we combine our considerable real estate savvy with an unmatched understanding of the broader issues of supply chain management.
