PITTSBURGH, PA-Boston-based Cresa Partners has expanded to Pittsburgh through an affiliation with locally based Alliance Real Estate Associates. Dick Cassetti founded Alliance in 2002 and will become the managing principal of Cresa Partners, located here at 600 Grant St.

“Cresa’s philosophy and ours are identical,” Cassetti tells GlobeSt.com. “We both exclusively represent tenants. We have national tenants here and export a lot of business out of Pittsburgh. These clients will benefit from Cresa’s national and international platform along with its access to more services, such as lease administration and project management.

“Also, there’s a lot of activity going on here now,” Cassetti adds. “Cresa is importing a lot of business to Pittsburgh, so this is a very mutually beneficial affiliation.” Prior to founding Alliance, Cassetti served as a principal in the local office of Trammell Crow Co. Other Alliance principals, Kim Ford, EVP, and Simon Franklin, VP, also join the Cresa Partners’ team here.

Bill Goade, founding chairman of Cresa, praises Cassetti and his team for its “creative approach and attention to detail. They bring a wealth of knowledge about the local market that will benefit Cresa clients tremendously,” he says. Cresa Partners now has 47 offices in North America and is an alliance member of the Atisreal international real estate group, which provides coverage in 35 countries and more than 125 cities worldwide.
