Lisa Chasteen

Vice President of Leasing and Asset Management

Lisa Chasteen serves as Vice President of Asset Management and Leasing at LaPour. Within this role, Lisa is responsible for all aspects of leasing and asset management as it pertains to fully developed commercial and industrial buildings for LaPour. Over 20 years experience in the industry has cultivated her ability to maintain consistent year over year results with high occupancy, strong tenant relationships, modern TI design for new spaces, and a strong presence within the brokerage community.

Two decades with Jeff speaks volumes about collaboration and loving your work. Lisa is a fan of the movie Tremors a 90’s cult classic which is sometimes described as bemused, improvisatory, and wilfully low-key, not unlike Lisa herself. No nonsense straight up and uncomplicated, which is why there is no procrastination over her brunch order, it will be the eggs benedict every time.

When Kari is not dreaming the impossible for the next development project, she’ll be dreaming of a White Christmas. A rarity in Las Vegas but not impossible. Her love of the film of the same name shines a light on her eternal optimism and a seasonal crooner. Kari has the gift for inventive thought when it comes to the complex, not unlike Lionel Sternberger the creator of the humble yet delicious Cheeseburger, Kari’s favorite.
