Cresa Minneapolis was one of the first firms to pioneer a new way of doing business in the corporate real estate industry by serving only the users of space, and never more than one side in a transaction. By choosing to exclusively represent tenants in commercial real estate transactions, we avoid potential conflicts of interest. Since 1989, the Minneapolis office has had a strong ethic of building relationships, teamwork, and service delivery as evidenced in our broad range of integrative services. Our 23 real estate professionals average 18 years’ experience in the corporate real estate industry, and deliver exceptional local, national, and global real estate services to some of the nation’s leading companies. We take the time to think about business needs before we begin talking about real estate requirements, and always work in the best interests of our clients.

Our team is guided by the principle, “do the right thing,” and always works to have a reputation for treating people with integrity, both internally and externally. Cresa Minneapolis has been recognized as one of the “Best Places to Work” by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal for nine consecutive years and designated by Minnesota Business Magazine as one of the "Best Companies to Work For." Several of our members were awarded with the 2015 IFMA Exemplary Service Provider Award of Excellence and Cresa was the recipient of the 2013 Minnesota Business Ethics Award which honors businesses that exemplify high standards of ethical conduct in the workplace, the marketplace, and the community.

The Twin Cities, Minneapolis and St. Paul, have long been known for their large number of major headquarters companies—most recently 18 companies on the Fortune 500 list.  The Twin Cities area also has important components of the medical technology, insurance, agricultural, and other diverse industries. We know that very assignment is unique, and our full range of services help us find the right solution(s) for any industry.
