Our Team

We make your real estate a competitive advantage

Long before we talk industrial real estate, we talk business. “Deciding where to relocate or expand your operations is an opportunity to establish a competitive edge by aligning labor, tax and incentives, logistics, and real estate with customer requirements and business goals,” says Brandon Podolski, leader of Plante Moran Cresa’s industrial real estate consulting practice. “It takes a holistic and comprehensive view of your real estate strategy to execute on that opportunity.”

We’ll show you every option so you can make smart business decisions regarding project feasibility, industrial lease space, portfolio management, development, national and international site selection, incentives, and more. Bottom line: We are so much more than an industrial real estate agency. We are a full-service client advocate for users of space looking to lease, buy, or build.
