Hear from Comcast and Cresa teams about their experience collaborating on Comcast's new 246,000 square foot Central Division Headquarters, located at The Battery development in Atlanta, Georgia.


Thank you for visiting the Chicago web page of Cresa. Our Chicago office continues to flourish under the leadership of Sheila MatuscakBrad Metzger and Allen Rogoway. During these uncertain times, our firm offers our clients a stable partner with no debt, increasing revenues and a growing talent pool. We look forward to adding value to your team through our focused experience with corporate real estate users.


As a real estate services partnership, our team provides strategic and customized real estate solutions for occupants, implemented through our global platform, without conflict.

As both business owners and real estate professionals, our leadership team has a personal understanding of the impact a real estate decision has on an organization's operations and profitability. We also understand how it can impact an individual's career. 

We value our clients equally and have the flexibility to scale our services to provide the resources necessary to implement solutions ranging from a onetime local real estate transaction to managing all aspects of a global real estate portfolio through our comprehensive services platform. 

We aren't your representative, we are your partner. Our clients typically view our advisors as an extension of their internal resources, often times integrating our team to the point that our company brand becomes invisible to their internal customers.


Our leadership team has an average of 25 years of experience within the real estate industry. Each has led significant accounts and projects on both a local and global basis. We have expertise in many industries and have developed the following areas of specialization:
  • Associations & Non-Profits
  • Cable Communications 
  • Consumer Products 
  • Education/Student Housing
  • Healthcare
  • Insurance
  • Life Science
  • M&A/Restructuring 
  • Service Companies
  • Technology


Home to some of the largest companies such as Abbott Laboratories, All State, Boeing, Caterpillar, McDonalds Corporation, Sears, Tribune Company, United Airlines, Walgreens and The Wm. Wrigley Jr., Company, Chicago is not only a vital economic nucleus for the entire country but also an international hub for the banking, transportation, business services, consumer products, and trade markets. Our market tends to be far less exposed to variations in the economy as compared to other major metropolitan markets, mostly because it is not oversaturated and is well diversified. Chicago is home to a vibrant office market consisting of over 400 million square feet of space as well as the national hub for the production, distribution, and supply chain economy consisting of 1.2 billion square feet of floor area.

Industrial Services

Industrial Services

Cresa Chicago works with companies to develop real estate solutions that optimize the supply chain while controlling costs. Our industrial and supply chain specialists apply Cresa's proven methods and integrated services to locate, acquire, and develop industrial and logistics space, always striving to reach an outcome that exceeds the client’s requirements. We focus on helping our clients make real estate decisions that create leverage and lead to a competitive advantage. By solely representing the interests of tenants, Cresa is uniquely qualified to advise clients and advance their best interests in order to increase efficiency, speed time-to-market, improve service levels, and improve profitability.

Supply Chain Meets Real Estate

A warehouse isn’t just real estate. It’s a crucial link in your supply chain. As a pivot point for moving your goods around the country, its location cannot be haphazard.

And yet, warehouse space that truly fits your needs may be in short supply — at any given time, your options will most likely be limited.

Our consultants are known for taking a more holistic view of your entire supply chain. We know how the right real estate can add vital flexibility to your logistical needs, so we look beyond just rent to the equally important costs associated with transportation, fuel, and labor.

In short, we combine our considerable real estate savvy with an unmatched understanding of the broader issues of supply chain management. 

Manufacturing for Today’s World

In today’s business climate, there are any number of reasons to relocate your manufacturing facilities. Maybe you need to modernize your operations. Maybe you’re looking for a more capable workforce. Maybe you’re attracted to localities that offer economic incentives. Or maybe you’re “backshoring” — bringing your operations back from overseas.

Regardless of your reasons, our industrial experts have the knowledge and resources to address them. We work with manufacturers of all kinds, from metalworking and machine shops to the most advanced technology-driven facilities, from light assembly to precision medical device production.  We are thoroughly familiar with new trends in both engineering and production, and we can help you find a building ideally suited to the flexibility your operations now demand.  

Integrated Services

Once we have identified a course of action — whether for your supply chain or manufacturing needs — we then assemble the right combination of services to carry it out. From a single point of contact, we’ll coordinate an integrated team of specialists that can provide:

So don’t try to shoe-horn your industrial requirements into a space that’s not right for you. Talk to people with the experience and expertise to meet those requirements in an unbiased, strategically-sound manner. Call our Industrial Advisors at 312.376.4100.

Professional Golf Sponsorship

Cresa is proud to sponsor PGA Tour professional Brendan Steele, LPGA Hall of Fame golfer Amy Alcott, and legendary golfer Fred Funk, who currently plays on both the PGA Tour and the Champions Tour.  Sponsoring these three exceptional players is a natural fit for Cresa.  Just like us, they are specialists, and they are successful at the highest level. They have skills that set them apart, just as Cresa does.

Brendan Steele won the 2010 Nationwide Tour Championship in a playoff and joined the PGA Tour in 2011. In just his 12th start there he won the Valero Texas Open and later that year was in contention for the PGA Championship title in his first major championship appearance. The personable Steele earned a Business Administration degree at the University of California – Riverside, where he also won five tournaments and was an Academic All-America selection.

Fred Funk, a longtime fan favorite, has eight PGA Tour victories, including three Champions Tour major championships - the 2008 & 2010 JELD-WEN Tradition and the 2009 U.S. Senior Open.  He also won the 2005 Players Championship. He became the fifth oldest player to win on the PGA Tour with his victory at the 2007 Mayakoba Classic. He won two Champions Tour events in 2012 – the Insperity Championship and the Greater Hickory Classic at Rock Barn.

Amy Alcott is a highly celebrated and well respected champion of the game, on and off the course. She is a member of the LPGA and World Golf Halls of Fame. During her 27-year career she was most recognized as the LPGA’s finest and most creative shot-maker and her go-for-the-pin style of play was the bedrock for her 32 professional tournaments captured worldwide including five major championships.  She is currently serving as co-designer of the golf course for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Fred Funk Breaks Course Record at Cresa Outing

Cresa Chicago hosted a golf outing at the Park Ridge Country Club with Cresa sponsored, PGA and Senior Tour professional golfer, Fred Funk. Fresh off Fred's latest Champions Tour win at the Legends of Golf, he broke the long standing course record of 65 at Park Ridge Country Club with a 64.

Fred Funk, a longtime fan favorite, has eight PGA Tour victories, including three Champions Tour major championships - the 2008 & 2010 JELD-WEN Tradition and the 2009 U.S. Senior Open.  He also won the 2005 Players Championship. He became the fifth oldest player to win on the PGA Tour with his victory at the 2007 Mayakoba Classic. He won two Champions Tour events in 2012 – the Insperity Championship and the Greater Hickory Classic at Rock Barn.
