While the space needs of non-profit organizations generally pose a challenge to real estate firms, Cresa has long risen to that challenge with solutions tailored to their circumstances. As with all our clients, we look first to the strategic needs, finding out all we can about your organization’s mission, its long-term goals, and its relationship to the community.

Our specialists are sensitive to the unique requirements and constraints that non-profits regularly contend with, including:

  • Funding issues — We understand how uncertain budgets can be, and we can tailor flexible lease terms to your current and projected cash flows
  • Tax and regulatory — While the organization may operate tax-free, that does not necessarily apply to its real estate costs. We are also keenly aware of the various regulatory and compliance issues to which you may be subject
  • Decision-making — We understand consensus-based decision processes and we are adept at securing the approvals of real estate task forces, executive committees, and boards of directors
  • Use requirements — We deal regularly with zoning and traffic issues, and we can help you fit the organization’s space to the community it serves
Once we have performed our strategic analysis, we offer a full range of services for every stage of the real estate life cycle, from initial planning through final move-in.
