Christina Esterly, President
She is passionate about OA’s mission of helping small businesses start, grow and expand in Albuquerque and sees OA as a business development resource and not just office space or mail service. In her off time, she enjoys her husband, 5 kids (4 grown), 3 grandkids, 3 Golden Retrievers, 1 Amazon parrot and 3 turtles. She loves the outdoors and enjoys hiking and camping. She loves the beach! Bahamas is her favorite beach for sun and fun while Isle of Capri, Italy is the most beautiful place on the planet!
Michelle Cortez, District Manager – Both locations
Michelle Cortez is our District Manager presiding over both the Lang Journal Center and the West side Office Alternatives locations. She has worked for OA since November 2019 starting at the Lang Journal center location front desk and promoted to the manager role at Riverside by March 2020 and promoted again April 2021 to District Manager. Michelle is also the OA social media coordinator and loves to get the word out about how OA helps small businesses grow and maintain a big image at a small cost.
Michelle is a UNM alumni and loves spending her time exploring ABQ with her camera and coffee, and she enjoys reading and staying active. On most weekends you can find her hiking and backpacking with her boyfriend and four-legged child (her dog) and traveling around New Mexico and Colorado enjoying the great outdoors. She is a smiling face with an outgoing personality and always ready to learn and help.

What Our Clients Are Saying!
When a potential web development client suggests we meet at a coffee shop, it really gets their attention when I suggest we meet at my office... and ask if they prefer east or west of the Rio Grande.
One of the great things about Office Alternatives is that the entire staff is very amicable – you can always count on the staff to greet you and your visiting clients with a smile.
“I moved into Office Alternatives in April and have been so pleased with my decision. The attention to detail that the office manager Christine and receptionists Toni and Faith give is amazing! I moved into an established well-oiled machine and plan on staying for a while.”
Office Alternatives provides excellent customer service and were very responsive to not only our needs, but our customers as well.
Office Alternatives allows for flexibility and lower overhead costs, which are important to our company’s success. The money we save helps us pass on savings to our clients.
