Cresa Cincinnati is a global corporate real estate advisory firm that was first to market in exclusively representing office and industrial tenants throughout the Greater Cincinnati region, including Dayton, Columbus, Lexington and Louisville. Now, 23 years later, the advice received from the very experienced Cresa team continues to be always completely objective and conflict free, so you know that your best interest is our only priority. With an average of 25 years experience, each advisor is well versed in strategic planning, market analysis, lease/purchase negotiations, and project management.
Our clients range from local startups to national, multi-site corporations. Commercial users seeking to renew a lease, relocate, consolidate, expand, dispose of space, or purchase property should partner with an exclusive tenant advisor. We are inspired by such a partnership – with our clients, business partners, consultants, and our community – and our focus is our promise to be a tenant’s advocate.
The metropolitan Cincinnati area boasts headquarters to nine Fortune 500 companies, over 400 international firms, and a wide variety of small businesses. This strong mix of companies and institutions encompass fields of advanced energy, aerospace, branding & creative services, chemistry & plastics, consumer products, distribution, education, finance, IT services, and life sciences. We take pride in being members of this community, which helps us in knowing the market, providing clients with our expert advice, and helping them transition seamlessly into new space.
Our mission is to provide customized solutions exclusively for corporate space users by offering fully integrated services that align their real estate needs with their business plans, delivering maximum cost savings and exceeding expectations.
Our vision is to be the exception in the commercial real estate industry: A company that is service-oriented rather than transaction-oriented, with advisors who are client focused not deal focused.
We are guided by the concept, “Do the Right Thing,” both internally and externally. We will always do what is right for the client’s best interest and put that interest before our own. We treat our clients and employees with respect, dignity and fairness in all matters.
