LOS ANGELES – April 10, 2018 – Cresa is pleased to announce that David Toomey, Brian Davies, Jerry Porter and Matthew Miller have once again been named CoStar Power BrokersTM by CoStar Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSGP), the leading provider of commercial real estate information, analytics and online marketplaces.  Now in its 18th year, the award recognizes distinguished professionals in commercial real estate brokerage by highlighting the achievements of the firms and individual brokers who closed the highest transaction volumes in commercial property sales or leases in 2017 within their respective markets.

With the largest professional research organization serving the commercial real estate industry, CoStar is uniquely positioned to identify the top firms and brokers in each market throughout the U.S. and Toronto, Canada.  All awards are based on transaction data maintained in CoStar's commercial real estate database.

Toomey, Davies, Porter and Miller each qualified as one of the top commercial brokers in Los Angeles based on the total leasing transactions they closed during the year.  In order to be selected for this honor, their overall transaction volumes were evaluated by CoStar against other commercial real estate brokers active in the region, and subsequently ranked among the top brokers in the market.

Significant transactions closed by the foursome in 2017 included headquarters assignments for ZipRecruiter, ZEFR, Game Show Network and Miramax.

“We are very fortunate to have an incredible roster of top-tier clients that trust us to handle their real estate requirements,” said Cresa’s David Toomey.  “We are grateful for their support and the opportunities they provide us, and we appreciate the acknowledgement of our efforts through this prestigious award.”

“With such an active year in commercial real estate, CoStar is proud to honor the firms and brokers who perform at the industry’s highest level,” said CoStar Group founder and CEO Andrew C. Florance. “These industry leaders deserve to be recognized for their hard work, expertise and superior deal-making abilities.  We extend our congratulations to David Toomey, Brian Davies, Jerry Porter and Matthew Miller on their hard-earned achievement.”
