Mr. Gluck has been the force behind Stellar for more than three decades and has built Stellar into a significant player in the New York real estate market. Before founding Stellar, Gluck served as an attorney specializing in real estate law at the prestigious law firms of Proskauer, Rose, Goetz & Mendellsohn and later as a partner at Dreyer & Traub. From a four-family brownstone on Henry street to a 16-family apartment building in Park Slope, his early real estate investments would become the seeds from which a full-time partnership would form and Stellar Management would grow.
Ms. Katz served as an attorney at the law firms of Dreyer & Traub and later Baer, Marks & Upham representing some of the most notable names in real estate: Trump, Litwin, Zucker and Pilesfsky in all aspects of a transactional real estate. Having first met Laurence Gluck while working at Dreyer & Traub, they met again years later and decided to create the law firm of Gluck & Katz, now the legal arm of Stellar Management. Ms. Katz eventually became a co-owner of Stellar and spearheaded commercial leasing, management and refinancing. Heavily involved in the decision making at Stellar Management, she is a go-to person and a key troubleshooter.
