Office

At Cresa Toronto, office leasing is a key practice area; we are in the market every day, bringing both real-time knowledge and experience to each of the markets we service. Our coverage spans the entire GTA, with three key nodes: Central, West GTA, and North/East GTA. With many Canadian head office locations being housed in the GTA, Cresa Toronto is responsible for servicing a busy and ever-changing market.

Strategic Planning, or ‘intelligence services’, ensures that we understand, formulate and deliver focused and customized real estate solutions that will offer the greatest opportunity for cost savings and generate lasting benefits, while maintaining our clients’ business goals and objectives.

Transaction Management is an important step in the process, whether our client’s are looking to relocate, renew or restructure; regardless of the end goal, there is always an opportunity to reduce operating and occupancy expenses, establish a competitive advantage and provide flexibility.

Project Management provides value-added results from concept to completion through defined strategies and single-point accountability, delivering projects on time and within budget.

Space Planning & Design operates based upon the approved Feasibility Plan, which will provide solutions for the execution of the project.

Industrial

At Cresa Toronto, we have a team of specialized Industrial Leasing experts who apply our proven integrated three- phase approach to locate, acquire, and develop industrial, manufacturing and warehousing space, always striving to reach an outcome that exceeds the client requirements.

 In today's competitive leasing environment,we focus on helping our clients make real estate decisions that create leverage and lead to a competitive advantage. By solely representing the interests of tenants, Cresa Toronto is uniquely qualified to advise clients and advance their best interests in order to increase efficiency, speed time-to-market, improve service levels, and improve profitability.

Supply Chain Meets Real Estate

A warehouse isn’t just real estate. It’s a crucial link in your supply chain. As a pivot point for moving your goods around the country, its location cannot be haphazard.

And yet, warehouse space that truly fits your needs may be in short supply — at any given time, your options will most likely be limited.

Our consultants are known for taking a more holistic view of your entire supply chain. We know how the right real estate can add vital flexibility to your logistical needs, so we look beyond just rent to the equally important costs associated with transportation, fuel, and labor.

Manufacturing for Today’s World

In today’s business climate, there are any number of reasons to relocate your manufacturing facilities. Maybe you need to modernize your operations. Maybe you’re looking for a more capable workforce. Maybe you’re attracted to localities that offer economic incentives. Or maybe you’re “backshoring” — bringing your operations back from overseas.

Regardless of your reasons, our industrial experts have the knowledge and resources to address them. We work with manufacturers of all kinds, from metalworking and machine shops to the most advanced technology-driven facilities, from light assembly to precision medical device production.  We are thoroughly familiar with new trends in both engineering and production, and we can help you find a building ideally suited to the flexibility your operations now demand.  

Integrated Services

Once we’ve identified a course of action — whether for your supply chain or manufacturing needs — we then assemble the right combination of services to carry it out. From a single point of contact, we’ll coordinate an integrated team of specialists that can provide:


Success in the industrial sector requires expert market knowledge, as well as highly effective negotiation techniques to maximize financial gain and ultimately secure the most advantageous transaction. In the current market of high demand and low supply, our team will work with you to find the best outcome for your business and real estate needs.

We are thoroughly familiar with new trends in both engineering and production, and we can help you find a building ideally suited to the flexibility your operations demand. Contact us to learn more about how we can help you: 416-862-8142.

Not-for-Profit

At Cresa Toronto, we have a dedicated team that focuses on the non-profit sector. The space needs of non-profit organizations are different from those of other types of organizations. We routinely work with associations, charities, schools, hospitals, cause-based and nongovernment organizations (NGOs), so we're thoroughly familiar with the financial and operational challenges of each.

Our Advisors understand the unique requirements non-profits face, and we tailor solutions to your specific circumstances. Through our integrated service model, we handle every stage of the real estate life cycle, from strategic planning to negotiation and implementation through the final build-out of your space.

Meet Jeff Good, SVP

For some practitioners real estate is all about the building and the deal: property is paramount. But when you’ve worked in the charitable world, you begin to realize that people matter, passion matters, and supporting your Mission are all critically important too. So knowing what makes your organization unique and how office space can help – or hinder – your Vision is vital.

As a Senior Vice President with Cresa Toronto, Jeff brings a combination of for-profit expertise and charitable organization passion that is unique in the real estate world. Having worked in charitable organizations for many years, and reported directly to a Board of Directors, Jeff understands the complexities of your situation in ways that no other real estate agent can.

If you’re looking for a partner on your real estate project that bring the values, ethics and experience to ensure success we invite you review Jeff’s list of clients and see if his expertise could bring your Vision just that little bit closer to reality – and if so to call him to discuss your needs.

Market Research

The critical part of market data is interpreting it correctly, not just reporting it. We have created specialized reports on the office and industrial market, with specific sections on each of the market nodes, to walk you through what the data means in the overall market, and what it means for you.

We have a unique perspective - the Tenant Perspective. Contact us to understand how our data and market knowledge can help you find the best real estate solution.
