Rick is a consummate professionalism and expert commercial real estate broker. He has been instrumental in helping our agency negotiate numerous building leases over the past 15 years. One of the things I like best about Rick is that he acts as our partner looking out for our best interests. He is not just interested in making the best deal but is clearly invested in helping us to achieve our goals.
Rick’s clear and direct communication, in a comfortable, caring, relaxed manner has been very helpful especially with delicate negotiations. I would highly recommend Rick to anyone looking for commercial real estate.

Rick Pearson is one of the finest commercial real estate brokers I have ever met and truly a phenomenal tenant broker. I have worked extensively with Rick over the past ~ 7 years and completed over a dozen lease transactions in 4 different cities in 3 states and currently involved in another building search. He also helped with numerous other searches, including Paris.
Rick has always advocated for us, the tenant, and he has saved us at least $1MM in lease payments over the course of the many transactions we’ve done together. He has a terrific knowledge base, extraordinary customer relations skills, a wide circle of industry contacts and the respect of all the executives at my firm and the broker community/colleagues he’s worked with.
He has traveled with me for site selection to the Silicon Valley, Maryland, and Colorado numerous times. He has helped with layout ideas, choosing architects, contractors, etc. and in the build-outs. He has helped mitigate problems and provided extremely helpful suggestions.
I really have had the most amazing work relationship with him, and he’s one of the key reasons for my success at this aspect of my job.

Rick and I have had a number of mutual clients, all of which raved about his thoroughness and market savvy. When it came time to move to a larger space, I thought I would reach out and see if he could help. I am glad I did.
Rick was there for us every step of the way, from finding the right space, getting us connected with an amazing furniture vendor, making sure the construction company did what they were supposed to do and more importantly, finish on time.
Not only was he incredibly knowledgeable about the local office market, but he was also able to navigate and get us an unbelievable space with significant concessions being offered by the landlord. Now that we are settled in, the property manager for the building always brings to my attention that Rick was able to get us concessions that nobody else has.
I could not recommend him higher.
I have known Rick for the last 5 years and when it was time to move offices, I called him and he was ready to execute. I was on a time crunch during the holidays and Rick was super responsive. Rick came with us to see all of my office options and got creative to ensure that we were able to put in the flooring we desired without spending more.
He is straight forward, communicates honestly, and cares - I like Rick and would recommend him to anyone looking for a good Tenant Rep for a commercial or business space.

Rick and Lindy are the pulse of commercial real estate offerings. When I needed to secure new office space, Rick and Lindy came prepared with many offices to see. They listened to what I wanted and set up the appointments ahead of time. We went out in the pouring rain! They have so much knowledge about why certain properties were better than others. There were so many details I had not even considered. I highly recommend calling Cresa before leasing any space. You will be impressed by their service and knowledge.

Great tenant representative. Rick has been our broker for 20 years. He always goes the extra mile. At one point we were trying to rent space in Victorville. When the landlord refused to bring the building we wanted to rent up to code, he found a buyer to purchase the building who was willing to make the improvements. Now that's what I call service.
