Marika Christie is a Charlotte transplant whose passion lies at the intersection of urban planning, commercial real estate and development. Despite Retail and Office being her areas of focus, Marika is very enthusiastic about corridor revitalization and all it entails. As a result, she has gained experience with the Industrial and Land markets. Marika represents both tenants and landlords, buyers and sellers.
Her interest in corridor revitalization also led her to start a digital publication focused on Wilkinson Boulevard, the corridor connecting Charlotte Douglas International Airport with Charlotte’s central business district. “The Wilkinson Blvd Newsletter” is a resource, published monthly, that highlights development, building and zoning proposals, and commercial transactions along the corridor.
Prior to entering the Commercial Real Estate industry, Marika spent several years in the Chemical industry in various roles. In these roles, she managed account relationships and sales of multimillion-dollar territories whose customers included Fortune 500 companies, distributors and smaller, local manufacturers of goods.
Marika holds a bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. She is also licensed in Florida, having spent time in the Miami market. She enjoys improv, traveling and really, really good food.
