Principal, Broker


As the founder of the Cresa Toronto office, Dean established the firm’s highly disciplined and professional approach to client service. As Broker of Record, he maintains overall responsibility for the firm’s strategic direction, as well as servicing some of its largest and long-standing clients.

Before entering the field of real estate, Dean spent a decade with Xerox Canada Inc. where he gained extensive experience in needs satisfaction, marketing and business management. In 1989, he saw the opportunity to combine his client service experience with commercial real estate expertise to provide a new high-calibre corporate real estate advisory service, and Cresa Toronto was born. Dean has worked within a broad range of corporate environments delivering fully integrated real estate consulting, brokerage and project management services to clients with local and national requirements.

Dean has developed new analytical approaches to the task of strategic facility planning, comparing real estate alternatives, structuring leases and project management. These approaches have made Cresa Toronto an influential leader in its field. His creative and integrated approach characterizes the value-added component provided for all Cresa Toronto clients, in addition to setting new industry standards.
