RockStep Capital is a full service Real Estate investment firm that uses investor capital to acquire shopping centers in secondary markets and smaller communities throughout the United States.
We focus on minimizing risk while providing solid, reliable returns to investors. We believe in small-town values, in building long-lasting partner relationships, and improving the communities in which we have an investment.
With over 6MM square feet of shopping center development and acquisition, Rock Step is able to acquire or build new shopping centers in a variety of different formats—from power centers, regional malls, grocery-anchored centers, strip centers, medical office buildings, educational facilities, and government facilities.
Rock Step uses its strong retail and specific market background to identify a realistic marketing plan for a shopping center. Due to RockStep’s excellent relationships with national and local tenants, such as retailers and restaurants, as well as office/medical users who locate in or adjacent to shopping centers, RockStep can quickly identify potential tenants for a center.
Rock Step can develop the appropriate marketing material, contact the tenant, negotiate a Letter of Intent, execute a lease, and coordinate the tenant opening. In today’s challenging economy, Rock Step can identify what it takes to keep tenant business active and identify which tenants are the strongest.
Rock Step provides third-party management for shopping centers including financial reporting, leasing, and all aspects of common area maintenance.

The Rock Step construction management team can manage a construction project from beginning to end. Rock Step can help define the scope of work, analyze the profitability of that work, hire consultants, manage the production of construction documents, coordinate the bidding process, negotiate a construction contract, manage the actual construction, process draw requests and change orders, and deliver a completed project for the tenant or landlord. Rock Step can strategically redevelop an entire shopping center.
Due to its strong roots in retail, Rock Step is able to help tenants identify the best locations in both urban and rural markets that we serve. We can help negotiate lease structures, tenant improvements, and free rent opportunities.
Rock Step will help landlords identify what needs to occur within a shopping center to improve its value, including identifying new tenants, negotiating lease terms, finessing rent reduction requests, identifying current tenant strengths, upgrading lease structure, and evaluating the return on investment by upgrading the center.
Rock Step can also help identify new financing, refinance an existing loan, or structure a workout of a problem loan. Our goal is to identify strategic opportunities as if Rock Step was the landlord. As a part of relationship building, Rockstep will work through critical letters of intent with those tenants that can dramatically impact the value of your center.
