SAN JOSE, CA—iCORE Global, a full-service commercial real estate provider, has formed a strategic partnership with CORT Business Services, a Berkshire Hathaway Company.

iCORE has been providing commercial real estate services in over 267 major markets worldwide for the past 28 years. Now, iCORE will be able to provide clients with furniture solutions.

iCORE Global sees real estate solutions as intrinsically linked to internal layout, furnishing and space utilization. Consequently, maximizing value of real estate requires flexibility in space utilization and furnishing to permit expansion or contraction.

"With CORT currently servicing over 80 percent of the top Fortune 500 companies, there’s already a significant overlap in our customer base," iCORE Global CEO and Managing Director Samantha Mueting said in a statement. "Coming together to form a strategic partnership in which both companies can provide additional value to their clients and make the real estate process that much smoother, just seemed like the natural next step.”

“CORT is keenly focused on eliminating stress and identifying and implementing solutions so our customers can get down to business immediately with minimal disruptions,” states Paula Newell, CORT’s vice president of Strategic Business Development. “The strategic partnership with iCORE allows us to continue on our proven path of successfully providing transition services to our common customers.”
