Newmark Knight Frank has named Liz Hart as vice chairman in the San Francisco Bay Area office. She is the fifth female vice chairman in the company and the first in the San Francisco Bay Area. Hart joined NKF in 2005 as broker assistant and since then her work resulted in eight levels of promotion.

Liz Hart’s first real estate transaction as a broker assistant was 937 square feet. However, she has become one of the region’s top performers over the past 10 years. Some of her top transactions include the 1 million-square-foot Uber’s Mission Bay Headquarters and the Stripe and Pinterest headquarters. Hart also represented CIM in their 355,000-square-foot Uptown Station deal with Square. Moreover, her specialty includes collaborating with technology tenants on headquarters strategy and landlords on complex ground up and redevelopment projects.

“Liz embodies all the positive, professional qualities that one can possibly fathom. She is a driven top performer, a great communicator, a proven team leader and a consummate task manager. She’s clearly an asset to our brand and mentors many young brokers and staff in our region,” said Bryan Courson, executive vice president & regional managing director at NKF, in prepared remarks.
