Workplace Culture: Cresa prioritizes mentorship; each of the company’s accounts is managed by a partner who is committed to developing new talent, as well as sharing their years of industry knowledge. Each mentee is included on accounts and provided the opportunity to learn through real world account management, side-by-side with their senior partner. Mentors also teach their protegees how to make the most of client feedback, ensuring their growth and customer satisfaction.
Community Impact: Through Cresa’s 501c3 organization, Cresa Cares, the company has held multiple fundraisers, raising more than $20,000 for local non-profits since the beginning of 2021. At Cresa’s annual Spring Meeting alone, the organization raised more than $100,000 to go towards supporting charities.
