Chris Crooks // Principal / Co-Founder // Cresa / Rec4af
We’re happy to welcome Christopher Crooks, a principal with Cresa which is a global real estate firm with a tenant-only focus. Mr. Crooks has been with the firm for over two decades and has recently launched a program within the company to help veterans get into real estate. Additionally, he’s founded a nonprofit organization to further that same goal of helping vets into the real estate practice. Real Estate Careers for the Armed Forces (REC4AF) is the nonprofit that furthers his commitment to helping vets transition out of the military and into civilian life through workforce training to enter the real estate practice.
Chris has more than 24 years of real estate experience, including over 21 years of consulting and brokerage service at Cresa and over three years of commercial/industrial real estate appraisal for major banking institutions in New England. Chris co-founded the Armed Forces Practice Group specializing in helping veteran-owned companies as well as companies that support the Armed Forces in their real estate needs.
Cresa is the world’s largest tenant representation only firm with the mission to provide customized solutions exclusively for corporate space users by offering fully integrated services that align their real estate needs with their business plans, delivering maximum cost savings and exceeding expectations.
