We are part of the largest tenant representation only company in North America.  Our goal is to work as a real estate partner for our clients.  We focus on establishing strategic plans for corporate real estate requirements.  In addition to implementing plans to minimize occupancy costs and optimizing space utilization we are also adept at navigating changing market conditions.  Increasingly we are looking at ways real estate can play a role in increasing our clients’ revenue.


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.

Community Service

As a company, Cresa has always been guided by the principle "Do The Right Thing."  Locally in the Omaha office, we extend this value beyond the world of real estate into support of our community. Our most recent volunteer event took place in November with members of the Cresa team taking a day off to volunteer with Food Bank for the Heartland.

Did you know? In 2016, Food Bank for the Heartland supplied 22 million meals and their goal is to increase that to 25-26 million meals annually. In addition, volunteers donated over 51,000 hours of service which is equivalent to 21 full-time employees. Surprisingly, at the food distribution center, their biggest item is NOT canned foods, but fresh produce coming in at 30% of the food supplied to those in need.
