Ted began his real estate career in 1987 with Inter-West Leasing & Management in Las Vegas where he was responsible for leasing and sales of the company’s portfolio in excess of 1 million square feet. In 1988, he took a leasing position with The Ribeiro Corporation where he quickly advanced to leasing manager and was responsible for an 8-person leasing team and a portfolio of more than 2 million square feet of office, retail and industrial property. His experience with several developers and national tenants earned him a principal position with Big West Development in 1991. During this time, he was responsible for pre-leasing, tenant coordination and property management of the company’s many projects. In 1995 Ted joined NewMarket Advisors (formerly Site Commercial) and began specializing in tenant and buyer representation. Along with partner Chuck Creigh, he helped build NewMarket Advisors into the market leader in Retail Tenant Advisory. Working for “top of category” clients such as Costco, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Staples, Toys R Us and many other national tenants, Baker has established a reputation for quality, integrity and collegiality.
“I am very excited to join forces with Logic Commercial. Their suite of broker support services are best in class and allow me to provide the highest quality of service to my clients. Having previously worked with the same firm for more than 20 years, moving was a difficult decision. But their talent, energy and professionalism made it apparent that Logic was the right place to grow and diversify my business. I look forward to a long and successful relationship here.”
While his primary focus has been on tenant representation, Baker also represents the landlords for some of the valley’s premier shopping centers. Along with Charles Creigh, Ted handled the pre-leasing of the first 2 “lifestyle” retail centers in Las Vegas; Rampart Commons and The District at Green Valley Ranch and has been involved in numerous “ground up” retail developments.
In addition to expertise in all aspects of shopping center leasing, in the past 10 years, Baker has negotiated the sale of numerous income properties, STNL transactions and most recently facilitated the sale of Rampart Commons, a $32,000,000 premier, lifestyle center. “We feel very fortunate to have Ted join the Logic team. Ted’s 30 years of Las Vegas based retail knowledge is second to none. Equally important to his depth of experience, is the fact that Ted is a perfect fit for the culture we have at Logic. While growing the departments we want quality over quantity, a goal we exceedingly achieved by adding Ted to the team.” – Brendan Keating, CEO
