Cody Cress Bronze Circle of Distinction

September 8, 2016

cody-cress-300x375Wilmington, NC – Cody Cress, Vice President and Industrial-Office/Investment Specialist of Coldwell Banker Commercial SunCoast, was recently named to the Bronze level of the Coldwell Banker Commercial^® (CBC) Circle of Distinction. The Circle of Distinction winners represent the top 2% of Coldwell Banker Commercial nationally. This honor is bestowed upon the top ranking sales associates among all CBC-affiliated sales professionals based on their Closed Adjusted Gross Commission Income for 2015. In addition to this national honor, Cress has been honored as the SunCoast Agent of the Year five times — in 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. Cress is a native of Sanford, NC and a graduate of NC State University with a BS in Environmental Engineering. He began his career as an environmental engineer for an equipment manufacturer, but real estate was always a passion. He purchased his first commercial property in 1996 and owns and manages his own portfolio of properties. Cress joined Coldwell Banker Commercial SunCoast in 2007.

Cress’ strength as a commercial broker is the ability to analyze a company from a broad perspective, from operations to sales to finance, and then use this analysis to identify the best solution to their specific real estate needs. And although he works with a variety of businesses, Cress’ particular area of expertise is in industrial and office properties.

“Cress is an extraordinary salesman and he brings a skill set in engineering and manufacturing that is unique in our marketplace,” said Grayson Powell, managing partner for CBC SunCoast. “Cody consistently ranks as one of the top salesmen in our region and it’s great to see him recognized nationally as well. We’re proud to have him as a member of the CBC SunCoast team and congratulate him on another successful year.” In late 2012, Cress formed the Cress Group within CBC SunCoast. The group is a collaborative effort of Cody Cress and Tyler Pegg, an agent who joined CBC SunCoast in 2007. Pegg is a Board member of the Realtors Commercial Alliance of Southeastern NC and was recently elected to serve as its Secretary/Treasurer. Since its formation, the CRESS Group has executed a variety of transaction types including purchases, leases, leases with option, investment, bank-owned (REO) and short-sales.

Coldwell Banker Commercial SunCoast was founded in Wilmington, NC in 2005 to meet the commercial real estate needs of companies throughout southeastern North Carolina. The firm is comprised of 20 commercial agents and 9 staff members who specialize in real estate sales, leasing, investment and property management for retail and commercial property owners from Carteret County to the South Carolina border.
