Darren has been an industry leader in Ottawa’s commercial real estate sector since 1999. Prior to opening the Cresa Ottawa office, Darren worked with two of Ottawa’s most active commercial design builders as a landlord and two major commercial real estate brokerages working as a dedicated Tenant Representative. Now an entrepreneur himself, as Managing Principal and Broker of Record for the Ottawa office of North America’s largest commercial real estate company exclusively serving tenants and owner occupants, Darren combines his experience as a developer, landlord and realtor to his clients' maximum advantage.
- We believe that the current model of commercial real estate brokerage is inherently broken and unfair to tenants.
- We believe that tenants deserve more (of everything!) than what our industry has traditionally offered.
- We believe our role as Cresa Advisors is to change the rules and disrupt “typical industry practices” to the benefit of our clients.
- We believe the best way to do this is to encourage an internal culture that is collaborative, promotes excellence, and whose mission is to serve others before ourselves.
- We believe we are in a different business from our competitors.
It is my sincerest hope that the words above will serve as a starting point for our team and our clients (past, present and future) to start a discussion that will bring us closer together, drive greater success, and increase all of our personal satisfaction.
