Blueprint Healthcare Real Estate Advisors had some big news this week. Founded in 2013 by Ben Firestone, Jacob Gehl and Chris Hyldahl, the brokerage company just named Torey Riso as its first President and CEO.
Riso brings 25 years of real estate and senior care experience to the young firm. He was part of the team that founded Care Investment Trust in 2007, where he served as President and CEO from 2009 until its sale late last year for $425 million.
At the time of the sale, Care Investment Trust had investments in 42 senior living communities in 11 states. Blueprint has grown dramatically in its first three years, and we suspect that Riso’s experience and contacts will help bring in some larger transactions.
