Cresa has the largest number of professionals among tenant representation firms in North America. We have over 800 employees, including more than 100 project managers solely focused on the needs of tenants, not landlords.
Cresa is based on a partnership model,

with more than one-quarter of employees serving as partners. Our leadership team is comprised of seasoned principals - each with more than 20 years of experience - who are dedicated to our pure tenant representation focus. At Cresa, we're 100 percent owned by our principals, and they understand that looking out for our clients' best interests is always in the best interest of our firm.
