US-based Cresa, a global real estate services firm focused exclusively on advising tenants, will open its office in Warsaw in the third quarter of this year. The Polish office of the company will be headed by Piotr Kaszyński who has 20 years of experience in the property market, having worked for companies including Cushman & Wakefield. “There is a void of tenant representation firms worldwide and companies are increasingly looking for a real estate partner that puts their interests first, and is not bound to landlords. This presents us with a great opportunity to expand Cresa’s objective, conflict-free, integrated services model in Poland and in the region,” Kaszyński said.
“We are responding to increased market demand for unbiased commercial tenant representation. Our exclusive relationship with tenants allows us to be totally independent, solely advocating on behalf of our clients. Poland, the largest economy in Central and Eastern Europe and eighth strongest market in the European Union, is a strategically important market for corporations, and Piotr brings an outstanding resume and client relationships,” commented Cresa’s CEO Jim Underhill. Over the last three years, Cresa expanded to the UK, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Hungary, Hong Kong, India and Australia. Altogether, the company currently has a presence in over 70 markets.
