Luise - Bisnow

When Luise A. Barrack-seen here with Lightstone Group acquisitions and development director Meir Milgraum at ICSC in Las Vegas-left the District Attorney’s office, she was looking for a practice area that was both challenging and evolving. She found it in real estate when she joined Rosenberg & Estis, where she has built relationships with clients and colleagues, helping to make the firm seamless, collaborative and more successful. This collaboration is incredibly important, she says, as “the labyrinth of local rent regulatory laws” present a huge challenge to the industry. Until recently, many of these laws did not apply to commercial properties. However, she explains, the City Council passed a bill into law intended to protect commercial tenants against “harassment”-effective Sept. 28-which, in many ways, places commercial property owners in the same position as residential property owners. Luise believes that working hard and putting “everything you have into what you do” is the key to success. And, if you need to clear your mind and get some exercise, you can join a bike club and go on long-distance bike trips, as she does.
