Professional Experience

Craig Cahow has concluded transactions valued in excess of $1.5 Billion during his career spanning three decades in commercial real estate.  He now serves as Vice President of the DAUM office in Woodland Hills, California.  Prior to joining DAUM, for fifteen years Craig directed the leasing division at Trizec Properties, Inc. for their Western U.S. commercial portfolio and subsequently specialized in tenant representation for 12 years at rival commercial brokerage firms.  Craig’s tenure with Trizec together with his experience in representing tenants has allowed him to perfect the art of negotiating from either a landlord’s or tenant’s point of view.

Craig’s professional expertise has been built upon office building leasing, sale/leaseback transactions, property acquisitions and dispositions, and development ventures.  He has concluded transactions with a multitude of corporate, professional and government organizations including MCI, Wells Fargo Bank, Travelers Insurance, Progressive Insurance, Ernst and Young, PacifiCare, URS Corporation, Baxter Healthcare, the City of Los Angeles, and the United States Government.  Craig’s diverse experience in having represented buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants within a variety of industries has enabled him to develop a keen perspective on the real and perceived needs of the parties involved in real property transactions, thereby allowing him to foresee and resolve issues before they become problems.

Craig has been an active participant in the Urban Land Institute, International Council of Shopping Centers and the Los Angeles Commercial Realty Association.  He has also served on the Board of Directors for the Information and Referral Federation of Los Angeles County.  He holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Brigham Young University.

“I found you to be among the most principled and competent men I’ve had the pleasure to work with.  Your professionalism was revealed at every level.  The deal you negotiated was exceptional.  Moreover, you did not abandon the project once the deal was closed and helped us work through a few sticky issues and did so graciously and with great energy and intelligence.”

Michael Josephson | President
Josephson Institute of Ethics

“Not only did you conduct a thorough search for suitable alternatives, you kept several buildings in play to make sure we had contingency plans, giving us additional negotiation leverage with our new landlord.  You went above and beyond what I would have expected throughout the process!”

“Craig, I can safely say that I have rarely been treated with so much personalized attention and competence. Our exact needs, both from a productivity and a financial perspective have been met and this is largely because of the time you took to fully understand our objectives.”
