Aly Christensen

Senior Associate

Aly is a Senior Associate with CBRE specializing in restaurant occupier representation. Her experience creating and executing high-volume market plans makes her an ideal strategic partner for clients looking to expand their business quickly, enter new markets or negotiate and execute multiple real estate transactions simultaneously.

A valued advisor and dealmaker, Aly has closed more than 200 deals for brands like Potbelly Sandwich Shop, Chipotle, Starbucks, Fuzzy’s Taco, Rustic Cuff, Shady’s Burgers and chef Matt McCallister. Her clients have trusted her restaurant industry expertise to complete special assignments like site selection and lease negotiation for Starbucks’ 12th Community Store, 2 of 20 Starbucks Reserve locations, and a first-to-market Potbelly Sandwich Shop location in Oklahoma.

Aly joined CBRE in 2015 through its acquisition of UCR. Prior to UCR, Aly worked for The Weitzman Group in Dallas, Texas, executing landlord and tenant representation projects for clients like AIO Wireless, Goodwill of Dallas, Snap Kitchen, Pizza Hut, QuikSet Jewelry and Shoe Show.

Aly earned her Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Real Estate Finance from Southern Methodist University in Dallas. She is actively involved in the real estate industry as a member of the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC), the SMU Real Estate Society and Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW). A Texas transplant, Aly has embraced the state’s southern culture and food, which is why you can find her two-stepping and eating her way through Dallas while away from the office.
