Cresa Vancouver continues to enjoy being part of a regional economy that seemingly only knows growth, with success piled on top of success, with a vibrant business community and simultaneously remains ranked as one of the most livable cities in the world. It is home to many top-tier businesses in such diverse industries as technology, television, film and video game production, finance, engineering, architecture and design, life sciences, animation, environmental sustainability, forestry, real estate development, mining, and tourism and a premier ranked airport and one of the busiest marine ports in North America.

Our singular focus is to make sure you end up with the best possible outcome, in the most cost-effective manner. Shoehorning you into just any space, just to get the deal done, is not in our DNA.

Our mission is to provide the very best solutions exclusively for users of commercial space by offering fully integrated services that align a company's real estate needs with their business needs, delivering maximum cost savings and creating the ideal outcome.

We are guided by the dual principles of integrity and trust, both internally with our colleagues, and externally with our clients and all those that we touch in our daily activities. We will always do what is right and not be afraid to stand behind our convictions. We treat our clients, employees and all stakeholders with the highest respect, dignity, honesty, and fairness in all matters. We are in business for the long-term, and will not deviate from these founding principles even if normal convention sometimes dictates otherwise.

Office Leasing

At Cresa Vancouver, office leasing is a key practice area; we are in the market every day, bringing both real-time knowledge and experience to every mandate we undertake. Our coverage spans the entire Lower Mainland. While always busy servicing long-standing clients, Cresa Vancouver has gained tremendous insight and expertise working with new businesses, partly as a result of the region's vibrant start-up ecosystem. 

One of our greatest differentiators is having an integrated approach to real estate strategy and transactions; being in such a dynamic market has encouraged us to continue to provide a full-service offering in order to truly achieve our clients’ goals in the most thorough and appropriate manner possible. Our team of experienced real estate advisors, strategists, space planners and project managers allows businesses to benefit from our deep bench and detailed approach to each mandate. Our experience has shown listening to our clients’ needs, reviewing and systematically processing all relevant information, identifying optimal solutions, analyzing these same options, negotiating terms and helping to manage the design and construction process creates the conditions for a very successful outcome.

In order to maintain our integrated approach, we offer value-added services in the following areas:

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

Transaction Management is an important step in the process whether our clients are looking to relocate, renew or restructure; regardless of the end goal, there is always an opportunity to address operating and occupancy expenses, establish a competitive advantage or sometimes just provide a bit more 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 is based on an approved Feasibility Plan, which in turn serves as a blueprint for the end result.
