Manager, National Retail Research
As the National Research Manager for Retail Services, I am responsible for studying conditions within the retail sector, collecting and reporting statistical data, and analyzing the data to identify significant trends and opportunities. I am involved with national pitches and pursuits, leading the quarterly National Retail Report, and educating brokers on an array of retail research tools like Restaurant Bytes and Creditintell.
Based in South Florida, I have been in the commercial real estate industry since 2014, am bilingual in Spanish, and hold a Florida Real Estate Sales Associate License.
I previously worked as a Senior Research Analyst in the Miami office of Colliers International South Florida where I managed a platform of comprehensive commercial real estate data, information resources, research, and training to support the sales and marketing efforts of the South Florida team. I was responsible for the collection, maintenance, and preparation of data across all property types required for writing quarterly statistical reports, graphs, and charts. My expertise in both leasing and investment sales ranged across multiple asset types including retail, industrial, office, and multifamily.
Prior to joining Colliers, I was a Compliance Specialist at Orlando-based FBC Mortgage, where I provided guidance to originators regarding disclosures and assistance in the interpretation of federal, state, and industry regulations. I began my real estate career as a Retail Services Intern with BishopBeale in Orlando which required me to analyze market conditions, conduct competitive research to identify new opportunities, and project management for multiple sites across Florida.
