Karl Baldauf, an executive managing director with Newmark, specializes in office property leasing in the San Francisco central business district. With 32 years of experience in the industry, he has a unique perspective that reflects his successful careers in both traditional brokerage and with the significant San Francisco and national landlord, the Shorenstein Company. Closing more than 7.0 million square feet of transactions, Mr. Baldauf’s strengths are his natural leadership and teamwork skills and his depth of transaction experience in San Francisco’s high-rise market.
Mr. Baldauf’s real estate career began in 1987 at Damon Raike and Company, where he specialized in office leasing on both landlord and tenant representation assignments. From 1995 through 2005, he worked with the Shorenstein Company’s leasing team, and by 1999 he had moved into the role of senior vice president and regional manager of San Francisco properties. In this role, he was responsible for managing the San Francisco portfolio of more than 7.0 million square feet at 12 different properties.
In 2005 he joined the regional office of Cornish & Carey in San Francisco as a founding partner. He helped grow that office’s agency and tenant representation practices, culminating in the successful merger with Newmark in 2014.
