Welcome To Our Website!

As the real estate industry becomes more complex, brokerage teams have become an emerging trend. Through hard work, collaboration and creativity brokerage teams are now positioned with a definitive business model focusing on overachievement and exceeding both client as well as team objectives. With this understanding, CRESCO real estate principals Joseph V. Barna, SIOR and Simon Caplan, SIOR have formed a full service brokerage team with George J. Pofok, CCIM, SIOR and Eliot Kijewski. This proven team concept in conjunction with CRESCO’s local expertise and Cushman & Wakefield’s global platform will significantly enhance the scope and level of service we provide our clients.

A Message for October.
Why a Team?

The team concept will benefit our existing and future clients by providing a full spectrum of value added services. The benefits of a team include…

• Intimate knowledge about markets versus individual realtors in unfamiliar markets.
• Better service because there is more manpower with different skill sets collaborating to complete the many tasks in a real estate transaction – independent realtor is overworked.
• A lead agent to manage, oversee, and coordinate each individual component of a transaction or assignment.
• Levels of efficiency that allows us to delegate responsibility. It is not possible to be in more than one place so splitting up the tasks to get the job done effectively allows for a quicker and smoother transaction.
• Inquiries from prospective buyers / tenants will be handled promptly
• Team members are trained to implement checks and balances.
