Welcome to Cresa Orlando where we are part of the nation's largest commercial real estate firm exclusively representing tenants. By not representing landlord interests, we bring our clients a conflict-free philosophy that assures their interests come first. Our entrepreneurial spirit and collaborative environment bring a fresh approach to office and industrial users of space.
We are able to integrate a full complement of services to include Capital Markets, Corporate Solutions, Facilities Services, Industrial Services, Lease Administration, Site Selection, Data Center Solutions, Strategic Planning, Project Management and Transaction Management, depending on the client's need for each project. Cresa’s global platform allows us to serve our clients not just locally, but nationally and internationally.
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.
We are clearly in a landlord market as vacancy levels just breached 9%. There is continued positive demand for space and very little planned new construction. Rental rates continue to climb and concessions diminish. Dispite this, absorption is slowing down, perhaps because of the lack of decent choices in the market. Like a 0% unemployment rate, it's unrealistic to think our market can get that low. At some point we will find ourselves at a "functional" 0% vacancy. At 9% vacancy, we are approaching this bottom where, without new construction, our local market will not be able to meet additional demand for office space. Fortunately on the industial side, we are seeing several speculative projects under construction.
Cresa Orlando is very responsive and a pleasure to work with. Their market knowledge is deep, broad and unbiased. All material met my expectations. Our representative was very realistic in his view and projections which helped us to understand what to expect. Prior to engaging Cresa Orlando for our Lake Mary office, I made many requests of them for materials pertaining to different locations for our firm and I was provided with exactly what I needed in a very timely fashion.
We have partnered with Cresa Orlando over the past 20 years both at PRC and now TelAffects for our office space needs. They are a market expert, are well connected in all aspects relating to their business and are highly renowned professionals in Central Florida. Cresa Orlando is very versed at negotiating lease terms in the tenant's favor and pays prompt attention to our needs. You will find them to be highly engaged and proactive and always rising above expectations. Cresa Orlando has been an invaluable asset to our business.
Cresa Orlando has been our broker since 2000, in our relocation, expansion and all other office needs. They have proven to be a knowledgeable expert in market and lease negotiations, always putting us first. We would not hesitate to recommend them to any tenant that needs unbiased, professional guidance on their office lease.
I engaged Cresa Orlando to handle the renegotiation/lease extension for our Maitland, FL office lease and subsequently used them for a similar assignment for our Tampa office. They are well versed on the specifics of individual buildings within our submarkets, actually knowing factors that could affect our lease rates. I found Cresa Orlando's long history of working with building owners and their representatives to be a significant asset during negotiations. They were able to anticipate key issues which were critical in our negotiations.
Cresa Orlando provides a vast array of services for all of our locations. They are diligent in their work, have a broad market knowledge and are proficient protecting our interests throughout the process. Cresa Orlando identifies feasible alternatives for our space needs, streamlines our decision process and helps us minimize our real estate risk exposure. As a nonprofit, it's important that we achieve the best possible economic lease terms for our locations, while not sacrificing quality of location and they have been instrumental in achieving our goals.
We hired Cresa Orlando as their firm works solely on behalf of tenants and we needed a focused, unbiased approach to a solution. We ultimately selected a property that allows us to consolidate our entire operation in to one building, reducing our economic exposure by 30% over what we are currently paying.

"Cresa Orlando met with us immediately and began a tiring search for business office space we could rapidly occupy and gave the flexibility to easily expand. The search resulted in us securing a 10,000 square foot lease in Lake Mary. During the process of searching the market, Cresa Orlando provided unbiased expertise and guidance in helping us choose the right location and landlord.They assisted us in thoroughly reviewing the different offers. Even after lease execution, Cresa Orlando actively supported us directly during the facility build-out discussion and negotiations. Based on our experience, we highly recommend them to anyone or any company that is looking into finding the right commercial real estate solution in the Metro Orlando market."

"John helped us successfully lease a nice office in Lake Mary, FL and made our relocation process as pleasant as possible. He was patient, very flexible and super quick to respond to our questions. He is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the commercial real estate industry and is able to help his clients find the right space for their needs. He is highly professional and went beyond the call of duty to make it for us an easy process. He took care of every aspect of the deal and even assisted with commercial needs after we were in suite. I would highly recommend consulting John for all your commercial real estate needs and look forward to working with him again!"
