We are a global commercial real estate advisory firm specializing in tenant representation. We strive to provide a scope and quality of services to our clients that is truly unmatched in this Dallas market.
We focus on real estate strategies that help you attract top talent, reinforce your brand, and increase profitability. Because we exclusively represent the needs of commercial tenants, therefore carrying no fiduciary relationships with landlords, Cresa uniquely provides objective and conflict-free solutions to meet your real estate needs.
Our seasoned advisors and project managers form partnerships with you, our real estate clients, and provide ongoing services that are sustained "beyond the deal". As true tenant advocates, we are accountable, from start to finish, for the successful delivery of your new space.
When it comes to financing and monetizing commercial real estate, every organization’s needs are unique — there is no “cookie-cutter” solution.
Our capital markets specialists are skilled at taking the value that’s currently locked into your real estate portfolio — whether leased or owned — and unlocking it, thereby freeing up needed capital. We regularly help tenants monetize their long-term leases, often through a sale/leaseback solution that allows them to re-deploy the proceeds elsewhere in the company.
Depending on your situation, we’ll tailor a solution that makes the most of your real estate assets, not just for your operational needs, but to optimize capital performance, weighing all pertinent factors —including your credit rating, earnings, debt covenants, and tax situation — in the process.
Once we’ve determined the best financial structure for the facility in question, we have a wide range of capital sources at our disposal, both in the traditional real estate markets and in the wider corporate finance markets — pension funds, life insurance companies, REITs, high-net-worth individuals, etc.
But regardless of how we arrange your financing, our first thought is always for your operations — for the actual purpose the building needs to fill. We have the deep knowledge and long experience it takes to align the financing to the purpose — rather than vice-versa.
With a strong multi-dimensional team, Cresa Consulting Group (CCG) helps clients make educated decisions around operations, labor, location, logistics and real estate - aligning a company's operational plan with a forward-looking real estate plan, and creating leverage for incentive negotiations.
CCG provides a deep look into every aspect of business, including drivers, infrastructure, supply chain, corporate structure and desire future state, to help you determine the best path forward. CCG's consulting services are applicable to all industries and segments, including office, industrial, healthcare, biopharma, government and technology.

The build-out of your new work space is not something you want to undertake alone. Our project management team is your assurance that it will happen in a timely, cost-effective way.
We are true tenant advocates — we understand that the interests of landlords and developers are not at all the same as yours. We can run the entire project. We’ll advise on all issues of programming, feasibility, and other challenges that may affect the build-out. We’ll negotiate with the landlord, hire the architects, engineers, and any other consultants, looking out for your interests at every turn. And we’ll make sure you get the working environment you pay for — and that your people expect — by taking complete control of the following:
Budget — We take charge of the spending for your project, advising you of any issues and pointing out possible savings
Schedule — We oversee the construction schedule, informing you of key dates, making sure you have time to plan your move without disruption
Plans — We create a rough outline of how your space will be built out, then we select the architect to draw it up formally
Permits — We take care of obtaining any permits necessary for the construction of your space
Vendor Selection — We oversee the hiring and supervision of: designers, contractors, voice/data suppliers, and other suppliers
Coordinate Installs — We supervise the installation of carpet, paint, trim, wiring, lighting, system furniture, and other items required in a working office
Relocation Management — We can implement your entire move — hiring the mover, packing and unpacking, setting up computers, etc. — so your people can keep working with as few distractions as possible
