Our Expertise

Commercial real estate advisors

Lease, buy, or build, we'll help you make the right real estate decisions.

As an independent commercial real estate consulting firm affiliated with Plante Moran, Plante Moran Cresa serves the unique facility and real estate needs of corporate business, manufacturing, education, municipal, healthcare, senior living, and faith-based clients. Our clients range from multibillion-dollar international companies to local operations with a single office.

Whether you're leasing, buying, or building commercial space, our experienced, multidisciplinary teams will focus solely on reaching your goals. Because we do not represent buildings, landlords, or design and construction vendors, you can be sure we're always 100% on your side, conflict-free and invested in your success.

Best of all, our commercial real estate brokers and construction project managers integrate with your organization in whatever way makes the most sense. We’ll help you successfully navigate a single initiative or act as a fully integrated real estate department for hire.

If you're considering your next commercial lease, building acquisition, or capital project, let’s start a conversation today.
