Why caliber

We are different

We Are Visionaries

Our market knowledge and experience allow us to bring creativity to understanding the moving parts that make up commercial real estate, and we pride ourselves on creating submarkets in mature markets. We bring creative solutions to problems that others can’t solve. Where others see vacant land and limitations, we see projects and opportunities. That’s why Caliber Commercial Brokerage is known for our flexibility and for solving real estate challenges.

We Are Full Service

At Caliber, we manage the entire process from promotion to execution, and provide ongoing support. Our comprehensive network of brokers, investors, tenants, and buyers gives us a competitive edge.

We Are Client Focused

Our focus always is on unparalleled personal service, commitment to our clients’ continued growth and prosperity, and customizing a team for each client’s needs. Whether the project is a 1,200-square foot storefront or a 45-acre redevelopment site, Caliber Commercial Brokerage assembles the right team to craft the right strategy for the right deal. Our greatest asset is the trust and respect we have earned from our very satisfied clients.

Growing up

Founded in ‘09

Caliber brokerage was founded in 2009, by Matthew Lester, with a goal to bring a more systematic and analytical approach to the Upstate NY marketplace. As we’ve grown, this goal has remained the same, allowing us to bring real results to our clients.
