The Firm

Since 1995, Cypress Real Estate Advisors (CREA) has built a solid track record of success with investors, residents, tenants and employees. Proficiency in sourcing investment opportunities in markets with significant job growth, combined with nimble development, construction and management expertise has resulted in superior risk-adjusted returns to our investors, while simultaneously enhancing the communities where we live, work and raise our families.

Experienced Placemakers

At CREA, we put our passion for bringing people together and our expertise in mixed-use real estate acquisition and development to work in the transformation of urban environments. We offer a unique pairing of investment advisory service and extensive development experience.

National Reach, Local Expertise

CREA’s principals have invested capital in excess of $2.5 billion in 17 major U.S. markets since 1995. Our geographic footprint is broad, but real estate, at its core, is a local business that requires local knowledge and expertise to produce attractive investment returns for investors. Our team of real estate investment, development, management, and construction professionals, along with long-standing joint venture partners, have formed close relationships with owners, consultants and real estate professionals in targeted markets so that CREA is well positioned to source investments and execute plans with local insight and expertise.

Socially Responsible.

From its inception in 1995, CREA has maintained that a high level of corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a key underlying tenet of its corporate mission and business model. By holding itself responsible for the impact of its development projects on both societal trends and the underlying natural environment, CREA believes that it is investing in a more positive future. 
 
CREA understands the importance of incorporating socially conscious planning and design concepts in providing a higher standard of living and improved quality of life for both our residents and the surrounding communities.  Also, with increased focus on its real estate development on the natural environment, CREA attempts to employ leading edge techniques with respect to both product sustainability and reduction of a project’s carbon footprint through the implementation of best environmental development practices.  These efforts often result in CREA projects being awarded multiple green building designations through both LEED and AEGB.  In addition, over the last decade CREA has been on the forefront of developing inclusionary zoning-driven affordable residential units, often building well beyond the minimum requirements imposed by the local municipalities
 
Adherence to these commitments and best practices ensures that future generations are able to enjoy our planet just as we do today.
