At Cresa, while your primary responsibility is generating new business, our associates are also involved working at the CEO/CFO level developing strategies to diagnose and solve business problems. Additional responsibilities include preparing market surveys, conducting research on companies, and communicating with existing clients. With our substantial growth over the past few years, associates are expected to assume significant levels of responsibility requiring a high degree of maturity, self confidence, and analytical ability. The work is exciting and particularly challenging, especially during the first year.

Responsibilities Include:

Our firm seeks candidates with the ability to work hard in a fast-paced, autonomous environment, and thrive on competition. Associates come from a wide variety of academic backgrounds; however, all have demonstrated solid academic performance. College graduates with a background showing leadership and social networking ability such as involvement in a fraternity/sorority, or leadership through athletics have done especially well in our business. 

Candidates do not need a real estate license before interviewing, but a real estate salesperson license will ultimately be required.



  • Are analytical, strategic, competitive and action oriented.
  • Are aggressive, self-motivated and business savvy.
  • Have strong communication and presentation skills.
  • Are driven by competition and have a passion for success.
  • Thrive on the excitement that comes from being part of a high-energy team.
  • Want the financial rewards of a career that puts you in control of your future.

1-3 years sales and/or real estate experience preferred, but not required.
