Dave Kirzinger
Chief Executive Officer
Rise Properties

Dave Kirzinger has enjoyed a distinguished career in real estate focused almost exclusively on multi-family rental. His specific responsibilities have included acquisitions, development, asset and property management and condominium conversions.

Dave began his career as a development associate with the largest rental developer in the United States at the time, Trammell Crow Residential. Dave moved from Trammel Crow to Intrawest and then on to Belkorp Industries where he oversaw all aspects of the company’s US apartment portfolio.

Understanding his ability to create value quickly, AvalonBay entered the Seattle market in 1997 and brought Dave on board to lead their regional office. In the next six years, the firm acquired, developed and redeveloped 3,000 units in the Seattle area. With this success, AvalonBay expanded Dave’s responsibilities to include the management of an additional 5,000 homes in California.

After his tenure with AvalonBay, Dave became the operating partner with MOSAIC Homes, a leading Vancouver, BC company. Dave led the US division and began his work with two new townhome developments in Redmond, totaling 145 units. He and the firm went on to purchase 1,100 apartments in 9 properties across the Puget Sound. Six of these properties were converted to condominiums while three were held as apartments. Under Dave’s leadership, MOSAIC was the first to see a market ripe for conversions, and to also see the declining sales environment, and exit the market.

Dave received his Bachelor of Arts in Economics from the University of British Columbia and his Masters in Business Administration from Stanford University.
