Cresa Los Angeles is one of the largest offices of Cresa LLC, the nation’s largest corporate real estate firm specializing in tenant representation and corporate services. Our office tracks local market conditions in five primary geographic submarkets—Westside, South Bay, East Valley, West Valley, and Downtown.
The economic downturn has affected the local real estate market, and while Los Angeles hasn’t been hit as hard as some other markets, leasing activity is now at its lowest level in over a decade. The good news is that these conditions have created a tenants’ market, which gives companies more leverage in dealing with landlords. In this environment, tenants are advised to be patient, deliberate, and strategic. Refer to theLos Angeles Tenant’s Guide for current market specifics such as average rental and vacancy rates.
The Los Angeles office predates Cresa’s founding in 1992. For more than 25 years, we have provided services to meet the diverse needs of business sectors including digital media, entertainment, advertising, technology, aerospace, professional services, and government. In addition to transaction management and site selection, we offer strategic planning and project management, which can help companies meet their overall occupancy objectives. Annually, we handle several hundred transactions on behalf of our valued clients.
With over 40 professionals, our office is led by 11 senior principals who average 20 years’ industry experience. Our team includes Gerald Porter, one of the firm’s founding principals. Our collective goal is to serve the best interests of our clients and to always “do the right thing.” See Tenant’s Bill of Rights, which reflects our commitment to providing the highest level of service possible.
Our firm and brokers are frequently featured in the press, and our office was recently selected as one of the “Best Places to Work” by the Los Angeles Business Journal for the second consecutive year. See News, for more updates.
