Anjee shares insights from Colliers’ consumer studies. She describes the shift from traditional shopping habits to a more digital and socially driven approach, and notes the importance of integrating online and offline shopping experiences in order to cater to modern consumer preferences.

Welcome to Elevating Brick and Mortar.
The podcast about how operations and facilities drive brand performance.

On today’s episode, we talk with Anjee Solanki, Head of US Retail at Colliers. Colliers is a leading diversified professional services and investment management company. Colliers maximizes the potential of property and real assets to accelerate the success of clients, investors and people.

About the Guest

In Anjee’s current role, as National Director, Retail Services and Practice Groups for the U.S., she provides strategic leadership to more than 500 retail professionals nationally, covering investment sales, agency, retailer representation, and asset repositioning advisory services.

Anjee Solanki brings 30 years of focused retail estate experience, and world-class expertise regarding everything retail to Colliers International. She provides strategic retail advisory services to enhance value for her clients with her expertise in lifestyle, community, power center, neighborhood, mixed-use retail/residential, and resort retail. 

Her strategy identifies current market and property inefficiencies to capture untapped value through asset repositioning, releasing, redevelopment, rehabilitation, proactive management, and enhanced marketing. 

Creative problem-solving is her specialty, and she becomes a key stakeholder with national and international retailers, such as JPMC, Opry City Stage/Ole Red and Tim Hortons, and many others. Her highly focused approach reduces the risk profile and provides clients with a thoughtful approach executing strategic multi-year planning initiatives.

“If a brand wants to see continued growth and success, they definitely need to have a brick and mortar component. You’re going to get more foot traffic to help educate that consumer on the brand. As brands define who they are, it’s critical that it aligns not only just in their messaging, their marketing, but also the experience that consumer has when they enter that store.”
