CRESCENT REAL ESTATE

We're here...and we're making a fuss about it because we're different.

We believe that buying and selling real estate in Canada's largest market should be transparent.

Welcome to a new type of brokerage. A digital-first, client-focused experience led by agents who legitimately care about the goals of their clients and the success of the team. Crescent is rooted in a partnership that goes beyond familial bond, is built from mutual experience that takes guidance from heritage and legacy, and has a fixedness of purpose that shines through every action.

What does this all mean for our clients and our employees? We're here to build trust, accountability, and respect by grounding ourselves in our morals and values. These values translate directly to how we conduct business, and dictate our vision for the continued growth and success of Crescent Real Estate.

Our guiding principles

They say that a company is only a sum of its people. We hire people who think the same way and encourage a free flow of information and collaboration. Here are some of the qualities that we look for in our colleagues, and who we ultimately strive to be.

  • Transparent
  • Trustworthy
  • Dependable
  • Focused
  • Driven
  • Resourceful
  • Approachable
  • Sincere
  • Humble
  • Successful

Why Crescent?

Taking its root from the Latin word crescere, which means "to grow", Crescent brings a similar theme to our brokerage – increasing and growing. We look to our agents to deliver an increasingly valuable real estate experience with a focus on not only growing the market, but your expectations as well.

Our Goal.

There are 3 ways for a new company to gain momentum: be first to market, compete on price, or disrupt the status quo. We comfortably take on the third option. Sure, we'll still buy and sell residential real estate like they do, but we'll innovate through unparalleled services with a focus on value.

What We Do.

Crescent Real Estate helps clients succeed. Period. Buying, selling, leasing, renting, or property development, we're your trusted partner and we bring the vast experience of all of our agents to the table. When you work with one of our agents, you're working with the entire Crescent team.
