Transaction Management

Acting as your unbiased advocate, we never serve landlords or developers.

On your side of the transaction.


As the world’s largest occupier-focused commercial real estate advisory firm, Cresa is uniquely suited to act as your unbiased advocate on all transactions. Our experts manage the process from strategic planning through final negotiations, providing real estate solutions that support your business goals. As your advisor, we are relationship-oriented, not transaction-oriented. This means you receive the same level of service on small renewals as you will on a headquarters relocation or large-scale consolidation.

Acquisitions & dispositions

Whether you are looking to lease or purchase space, or offload existing space through sublease or sale, we can assist. Once we understand the business drivers prompting the transaction, we work with you to develop and implement a strategy that supports your financial goals and long-term business objectives.

Mission critical solutions, colocation & data centers

As technology continues to evolve, so does the need for the specialized real estate that accommodates the infrastructure that operates those systems. Our experts can help you identify the right solutions and fail-safe infrastructure to keep you up and running. Reach out to Jason Shepard to learn more about how we can help.

Financial modeling

We help you understand how any lease transaction – or portfolio of leases – will impact your key financial statement metrics. Such information is essential to making better leasing decisions and identifying opportunities for cost savings.

Flexible office solutions

Whether you’re a Fortune 500 or fast-growing company, we’ll support your CRE team in managing its flexible workspace strategy and show you only fully-vetted flexible office options.

Site selection

We offer insight on location, proximity to talent and points of negotiation, helping you identify the optimal location for your new space.

Let us find someone near you with Transaction Management expertise.
