Christina DeRockere

Retail|Commercial Specialist

Christina recently joined Front Porch Realty Group from Urban Centre Development’s Real Estate Advisory Services (R.E.A.S.) where she worked for over 17 years in the commercial & retail sector.

Christina, a native of Oregon, has been working in the commercial real estate arena for about 25 years.  She had a good mentor & collaborator in her former broker partner Bob Carey.  They worked together on many large mixed use projects, such as Embarcadero Center & Rincon Center in San Francisco and Oakland City Center & Jack London’s Waterfront in Oakland.  She has also worked in virtually every viable commercial district representing both tenants and landlords — from San Francisco’s Union Square to 4th Street area of Berkeley — from Novato’s Grant Avenue to Theatre District in Petaluma.  As a highly experienced professional, she has a thorough knowledge of market conditions and landlord negotiating strategies, and the skill to apply this knowledge to your benefit.

As retail has morphed over time, so has Christina — to keep up with the changing needs of the commercial sector — balancing e-commerce and industrial warehouse needs against brick& mortar retail locations.  She is knowledgeable about neighborhood commercial districts throughout the Bay Area and the trends that make them unique.  She also helps clients when they need to convert from virtual office to a physical location where clients come for given services.
