Founded by Ben Latham and Rusty Richardson in 1987 as Guardian Investors, Inc., and subsequently renamed GBR, Richardson Commercial Properties today has evolved to become one of the region’s most active investors in value-add and high-quality, stabilized centers in desirable, high-visibility locations.

RCP was formed in 2017; in 2019, it merged its portfolio with GBR Properties. Under the current leadership of Kathryn Richardson and Rusty Richardson, Tulsa-based RCP is a full-service investor, developer, owner and operator of prime commercial real estate.

RCP’s singular focus is to acquire, own and develop high- and under-performing, portfolio-grade retail and office assets. Intentional, driven and client-focused, the firm thrives where ethics meet results to deliver a mutually beneficial relationship for each client, lender, investor, and tenant.
