About Us

Redefining real estate management through innovation and strategic partnership.

Our Story

Shaping the Future of Real Estate

With decades of experience working directly for owners and operators, our journey began with a vision to optimize real estate operations and redefine resource management. We aimed to establish a new paradigm grounded in our core values and our client’s expectations, emphasizing non-transactional, long-term partnerships.

As your trusted partner, our team provides strategic real estate solutions to help your organization better leverage its physical infrastructure. At Cref, the difference is we’re not just advisors – we’re operators. Our expertise in strategic asset advisory, project management, regulatory preparedness, and finding operational efficiencies, ensures our clients have end-to-end visibility and insight into their real estate portfolio, allowing them to make informed decisions and effectively manage their business.

We work actively on behalf of, and alongside our clients, ensuring their success every step of the way.
