My industrial building was on the market for over eight years. I was beginning to give up hope of ever selling. There had been four different real estate agencies given the listing over the years. After Michael Bennett and Jim Bob Taylor of Cresa took over the listing, it was gone in just a few months. We are forever thankful for their hard work and effort.

Jim Bob, Michael and the Cresa team did a great job of successfully arranging a smooth transaction where timing and communications were critical. It was important that all the pieces fell in place in the right order to allow our business to continue operating without a hitch. We are very pleased with our new location, and feel we are now better positioned to achieve our future growth objectives.

Jim Bob and Michael worked tirelessly to negotiate the best terms and resolve the issues that arose. His knowledge of the Atlanta industrial market gave me the utmost confidence in him as my advisor. If a company is looking for any help regarding their industrial real estate, this is the best guy to call.

When our Firm first considered the prospects of constructing, owning and ultimately managing a building, those tasks seemed difficult and unappealing. Our team at Cresa changed that mindset and created a sense of confidence with regard to each step in the process. We now have a tremendous workplace and asset for our employees. Seldom in the business world can one say that a transaction worked out exactly as planned. In the case of our new building, we can say that without equivocation. Thank you Cresa for your leadership, counsel and friendship.

Thanks to Michael and Jim Bob for their professionalism and persistence throughout the Covid-19 pandemic to close my 25,000 SF office/warehouse at my asking price. These guys are great and come highly recommended.

Jim Bob and Michael were extremely responsive and had our best interest at heart during the negotiation process. He worked very hard to get Southern Tire Mart the space we needed.

Jim Bob and Michael were able to effectively assist Test Rite in accomplishing our goals of consolidating our real estate. Their solution resulted in Test Rite occupying a new build-to-suit distribution facility and subleasing our 2 existing facilities which resulted in millions of dollars in savings for our company. I highly recommend this team to handle complex industrial real estate transactions.
