More About Christa

Commercial real estate transactions are extraordinarily complex. Clients look to Christa to help them maximize profits and minimize risks in connection with the acquisition, disposition, leasing, development, and financing of their commercial real estate.

Christa loves helping clients strategically maximize the benefits of their real estate portfolios. Whether that means shedding excess assets, consolidating locations, or siting new projects, Christa helps clients with all aspects of their real estate needs, and draws on her breadth of experience to help her clients reach their real estate goals.

Christa has advised clients on all aspects of commercial real estate for more than 20 years. She handles a diverse range of real estate transactions (leasing, acquisition, disposition, financing, and development), client types (lenders, borrowers, landlords, tenants, buyers, sellers, and owners), and products types (office, industrial, mixed-use, airports, data centers, warehouse, headquarters, campuses, and retail). She is a trusted strategic advisor on deal terms, structure, and negotiations.

Christa has successfully negotiated economic incentives of more than $1 billion in connection with client projects.

Diversity, inclusion, and development are paramount to Christa. As the national chair of the firm's Hispanic Affinity Group, she brings a diverse perspective to solving client needs. Recently, Christa was appointed to serve on Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) Network’s Diversity & Inclusion Task Force.
