Rising Realty Brings ERA Real Estate Offices to Chicago & Boca Raton

ERA Real Estate Announces Affiliation of Rising Realty

ERA Real Estate, a global franchising leader, today announced the affiliation of Rising Realty, an established brokerage with affiliated agents across its Chicago and Boca Raton offices. Originally established in 2000, the company will now serve clients as ERA Rising Realty, helping to establish The ERA® brand more resolutely in both cities.

“This is an exciting opportunity for ERA Real Estate to add to our significant network in both Chicagoland and South Florida,” said Simon Chen, president, and CEO of ERA Real Estate. “ERA Rising Realty is a company that is serious about providing stellar customer service,” continued Chen. “Their new, state-of-the-art office in Boca Raton is a testament to their commitment to excellence and customer experience.”

“ERA has impressive technology on two fronts: one to support the agent, and the other to create an unparalleled customer experience,” said Jason Shapiro, owner, ERA Rising Realty. “Coupled with their national reputation as one of the most respected real estate brands, we felt it was the best possible time to become a part of their network. The powerful trio of services, agent support, and collaborative culture drew us into the ERA family.”

ERA Rising Realty’s Chicago office is in centrally-located Lincoln Park, while the newly opened Florida office sits in east Boca Raton. The Boca Raton office features a chic, contemporary design that mixes high-end luxury with state-of-the-art technology tools and workstations. Its open floor plan allows agents to collaborate and communicate freely, while its two private rooms serve as meeting spaces for agents and their clients. Five minutes away from the ocean, ERA Rising Realty had their office designed with agent education, training, and collaboration in mind.

“I believe the modern, progressive look and feel of the office will help to promote a collaborative environment among agents,” said Shapiro. “We hope to continue expanding our network by recruiting and training other like-minded agents who are entrepreneurial and want to grow their careers with the ERA brand.”

ERA Rising’s vision is to eventually extend the brand’s reach into the central, southeast and southwest Florida markets.
