McDonald’s Corp.

Jim Carras Former Senior Vice President U.S. Restaurant Development

“McDonald’s has worked successfully with California Realty Group for over 10 years, often in the toughest markets. CRG has always been reliable, hardworking and professional. CRG has assisted McDonald’s in geographic areas with great barriers of entry, where McDonald’s already had a well established presence. Even under these circumstances, CRG consistently found the best new sites for McDonald’s, which more often than not, was like finding a needle in a haystack. California Realty Group also assisted McDonald’s with dispositions and relocations of existing restaurants.”




Joseph F. Oertel Former Real Estate Manager

“Over a decade ago CVS pharmacy selected California Realty Group to assist with our entry into the Southern California marketplace. This was a very difficult and daunting task given the intense competition for “A” quality locations and saturation of established drugstores in the marketplace. CRG came through in the clutch and has continued working with CVS for the past decade in identifying great locations, and most importantly, overseeing the deals to completion. CRG’s expert knowledge, perseverance, and determination have been instrumental in establishing CVS pharmacy’s success and market leadership in California.”

Butler, Buzard, Fishbein & Royce LLP

Kristina Royce Partner

“When our law firm’s lease was up, we called CRG. They quickly found us options for new space and negotiated a great deal. California Realty Group was professional at every step of the process and we wouldn’t use anyone else for this situation.”

Wells Fargo Bank

Andrew Hock Vice President

“As a construction lender, I have personally worked with CRG on multiple developments. Their projects were always successful and completed on time and on budget. CRG is very detail oriented, and it shows. Our loans were always paid on time, or earlier. I have known Mark for over 10 years and his character and integrity are of the highest quality. As a developer, CRG has an intricate knowledge of financing, construction and the entitlement process.”


Zaremba Group, LLC

Al Sulin Present/CEO

“Mark Esses and the California Realty Group has been our go-to real estate professionals for many years…whenever we’ve had retail assignments in southern and central California.  Mark is a deal maker; very responsive, and he works very challenging assignments until accomplished.  Plus, he stays involved throughout the process (when called upon), to make sure the deal gets done.”
