James Rodriguez | Senior Vice President

A seasoned commercial real estate advisor in Southern California, I focus on properties in densely populated multicultural and Hispanic markets. In particular, I specialize in retail development, redevelopment, strategic planning and consulting services for owners, retailers and municipalities.

Before joining Colliers, I was with CBRE in Southern California for 14 years. I have been unrivaled throughout my career in the sale, leasing and development of commercial properties in multicultural and Hispanic trade areas throughout California. I have assisted numerous regional, national and international occupiers and, to date, I have been involved in more than 65 shopping center developments that together total more than 6 million square feet.

Over the years, I have developed an impeccable reputation and track record for closing transactions on behalf of both private and institutional landlords and tenants, as well as handling the sale of investment properties. I have also been involved in the sourcing, planning, development and marketing of multiple high-profile projects in Southern California.

Before getting into the brokerage side of commercial real estate, I served as director of acquisitions and leasing for Comstock, Crosser and Associates Development Co., a development company based in Manhattan Beach, CA. There, I was responsible for identifying and acquiring commercial properties for redevelopment, assembling development sites and expansion of Top Valu and Valu + Food Warehouse grocery chains.

Our team is deeply involved in various product lines such as occupier services, landlord services and investment sales, all within the multicultural and Hispanic market. My individual focus is largely centered on landlord representation, which includes working with various different private and institutional investors on leasing and sales, as well as advising a number of regional and national brand retailers on strategic site selection.

Prior to joining Colliers International in 2013, I graduated from USC in 2009 and spent time at CBRE as well as Marcus & Millichap. While at Marcus and Millichap, I focused on investment sales for retail properties and shopping centers in the San Fernando Valley. I also have experience with the Westfield Corporation where I was involved with property management of the Valencia Town Center.

When not working, I enjoy traveling and spending my free time with my wife, young daughter and friends, who will tell you that I’m am always up for a game of basketball.
