Meet the Developers

Prior to joining Igel Properties in 2002 and starting her own practice in 2000, Rachel was an environmental attorney with Openheimer Wolff & Donnelly, PLLP from 1993 until 2000. She managed numerous environmental cases and was recognized by the firm for her expertise in handling complex regulatory law related to environmental issues with potentially detrimental impacts on real estate development, including hazardous materials, historical preservation of buildings and site lines, wetland issues, and enforcement actions.

Since founding her own company in 2000, Rachel has combined her expertise in both real estate development and environmental law to create niche development opportunities in the Twin Cities area, ranging from the development of property for wetland banking purposes to addressing environmental transactional issues to negotiating with multiple regulatory bodies to the purchase and development of numerous contiguous parcels of land to create complex open-space development designs.
