The Inception of Rising Realty Partners: Nelson and Christopher Rising Stories

Rising Realty Partners is a Los Angeles-based commercial real estate company that was founded in 2012 by a team of experienced real estate professionals. The company’s founders, Christopher Rising, and Nelson Rising, recognized a need for a new approach to commercial real estate ownership and management and set out to create a company that would provide innovative solutions to meet the evolving needs of tenants, landlords, and investors. With their combined decades of experience in the industry and a strong commitment to delivering exceptional value to their clients, the founders of Rising Realty Partners quickly established themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the commercial real estate market.

Innovation and Client Focus

The company’s focus on innovation and customer satisfaction has been at the forefront of its success. Rising Realty Partners uses cutting-edge technology and data-driven insights to provide clients with the information they need to make informed decisions about their real estate investments. They also place a strong emphasis on sustainability, working to create environmentally friendly buildings that are not only good for the planet but also provide superior value to tenants and investors. With their unparalleled expertise and unwavering commitment to excellence, Rising Realty Partners has quickly become one of the leading commercial real estate companies in Los Angeles and beyond.

Nelson’s Foundation

Nelson Rising was a seasoned real estate professional with over 40 years of experience in the field. He had led two large publicly traded real estate companies and had built some of the most iconic buildings and communities in California and the West. With his vast knowledge and expertise in the industry, Nelson was the perfect person to start a company that would focus on delivering high-quality real estate services. In addition, Christopher Rising brought with him a fresh perspective, a passion for technology, extensive experience in asset management, and a drive to succeed, making him a valuable partner and co-founder of the company.

A Family Company

Together, Nelson and Christopher set out to create a company that would provide its clients with a unique and personalized real estate experience. They wanted to make sure that each client received individualized attention and that their needs were met in a timely and efficient manner. With a strong commitment to excellence and a passion for the industry, Rising Realty Partners quickly became a driving force in the Los Angeles commercial real estate market. Today, the company is known for its boutique-style services, office and industrial investments across the Western U.S., unique investment opportunities, and its ability to deliver results that exceed its clients’ and stakeholders’ expectations.

The Real Market Podcast

In a three-part series of the Real Market Podcast recorded a few years ago, Christopher had his co-founder and father, Nelson, as a guest to discuss the founding of Rising Realty Partners. Reflecting on the company’s growth in the episodes, Nelson said, “The idea of what we’re building here at Rising Realty Partners and you being the CEO of it, me being the Chairman of it, it is a joy of my life.” Even after the passing of Nelson, his legacy and passion for the built environment live on within the ethos of Rising Realty Partners.
