Cresa was with us every step of the way - very patient, incredibly responsive, and they educated us about the market. I had never done this before so they really helped me learn about leasing commercial space. I can't imagine we were their largest customer, but we always felt like we were.

Outside of work, John enjoys spending time with his family and getting outdoors for activities like skiing, biking, tennis and golf.
