Meet Chris

Hi I'm Chris,

When I was a kid, we survived off food stamps and standing on the occasional food line. I left home at 15, the same age my mom was when she had me.

It seemed like a great idea, but suddenly my closest family was 1200 miles away.

My life became an endless cycle of finding someone willing to let me crash for the night. I no longer had a home, and I felt like I was always “in-between,” stuck in a void. 

I remember thinking, “I don’t even exist.”

So I start working every job you can imagine. One of the least terrible jobs was working at a hot dog cart

Chris Roberts Speaker

One Saturday afternoon I had a line of about twenty people. It was a beautiful day, the tips were good, and I was in the zone. 

After the line died down, a man approached me. His name was Ron. He said:

“I need a guy like you on my team. I’ve been watching you for the last three weeks. You have a good attitude, energy, enthusiasm, and you deal with pressure well. That’s something I can’t teach.”

Ron saw me in a way I didn’t see myself. In that moment I saw myself as a person with value for the first time in my life.

I didn’t know it at the time, but Ron had changed the course of my life forever.

20 years later I’m the CEO of Stirling Rhino Capital, a multifamily real estate investing firm with over $150MM in assets. More importantly, we were able to feed over 1,000,000 families through a partnership with Feeding America.

I went from standing on food lines to feeding 1 million people.

Ron was my unlikely mentor. And I want to show you how to find yours.

Everyone deserves to feel worthy

My Books

Multifamily Apartment Syndications

Author: Chris D. Roberts

The book aims to provide a comprehensive guide on making money as an investor/operator in multifamily real estate, specifically focusing on apartment buildings and value-add deals. Chris D. Roberts draws from their extensive experience as both a hands-on operator and investor in this sector. The book includes a detailed account of a value-add deal that Chris and their team have undertaken, covering the entire process from acquisition to renovation and sale. Multifamily properties encompass a range of buildings that can accommodate more than one family, from duplexes to large apartment complexes. Chris’ company, Sterling Rhino Capital, actively seeks and purchases large commercial multifamily properties for value-add opportunities, and they also engage in new construction projects. The company raises equity from passive investors and aims to provide above-average returns compared to the S&P 500, achieved through cash flow dividends during ownership and profits from property sales. Additionally, investors may benefit from potential tax advantages through building depreciation.
