Magnus Tonning Riise

Licensed Real Estate Salesperson


Magnus has called NYC home for more than 6 years and looks forward to helping you find your new base that will quickly become your home. Magnus grew up in Norway with his parents (American mother) and two older brothers. Music and a multicultural outlook were a staple of his youth. He eagerly relocated to London to attend Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, and then to NYC after graduation to pursue his theatrical ambitions. His keen business and negotiation skills led him to co-found NexGen Youth Theatre, an educational performing arts company that runs a variety of classes for young people in the New York area and produces their adaptations of musicals in Manhattan theatres.

Magnus is based in Harlem, although he has taught thousands of art classes throughout the many diverse geographical sections of NYC and enthusiastically explores new neighborhoods with his bike. He understands that moving here can be a scary and chaotic process, for both new and established New Yorkers, but Magnus will help make that process a pleasant and smooth one.

Magnus’s long-term interest in real estate coupled with his outgoing nature and eagerness to help makes him the go-to person for finding your new home!
