New tax bill's effect on the commercial real estate market

By Chris Rising

In December, Congress passed the most comprehensive change in the tax code since 1986. While we do not yet know for sure how those changes will affect commercial real estate, the general consensus here at Rising is that the overall impact will be positive.

Looking back at 2017 & Forward to 2018

Looking back at 2017 & Forward to 2018

For roughly three million people, the ultimate personal and team challenge is a Tough Mudder race. These races are obstacle courses between 10 to 12 miles long and the obstacles play on human fears like fire, water, electricity and heights. According to the Tough Mudder organization, the main principle revolves around teamwork. In talking with our team throughout the last year, I have come to believe that there are a lot of parallels between running a Tough Mudder race and the year we experienced. In the end, we completed the year in a strong position, we worked well together and had some real wins. However, it was not without its fears, its slow pace and its unknowns.
