Congratulations: PoliticsNY Real Estate and Development Power Players

R&E Managing Member Michael E. Lefkowitz was selected by PoliticsNY as a 2022 Real Estate and Development Power Player. As part of the Power Player profile Q&A, Michael was asked to answer, How did you become interested in architecture, real estate, or construction? We love his answer: “I became interested in real estate because of my grandfather, who started as a cigar store owner downtown and, realizing that owning real estate was more lucrative than selling cigars, began purchasing commercial real estate throughout New York City. I took that family interest in real estate, along with my father’s career as a New York State court judge, and I made the best of both worlds by becoming a New York City real estate attorney.”

On April 27, we celebrated Staff Appreciation Day with lunch on the terrace. It goes without saying, we value every member of our talented and dedicated team. With depth of experience and diverse skillsets, R&E’s administrative professionals are vital to the excellent services we offer our clients. Thanks to all who were able to participate in the fun, and we look forward to next year!
