    • About Kris’ authentic relationships
    • Kris’ different streams of horizontal income
    • What Kris does to stay healthy and functional

    • Plus, so much more!


    Before launching his successful commercial real estate investment career, Kris Benson recognized that “just because all the dogs are barking at the same tree doesn’t mean it is the right tree.” As Chief Investment Officer at Reliant Investments, he works with institutional investors in the self-storage industry – confident in the risks he has taken, the career changes he’s navigated and the tree he has established his investment platform on.

    After accepting his first job in sales “because I had diapers to buy,” Kris learned both the value and difficulty of cold calling while developing a “hunter” mentality. He joined the medical device industry with Covidien and later transitioned to Intuitive Surgical, famous for its DaVinci robot. After 12 years in the industry, Kris decided quality of life was more important to him than hitting sales targets.

    Before turning 30, Kris elected “to find a way to stop trading my time for money and to let my money make money.” He launched his commercial real estate journey, appreciating the value of investing in tangible assets. Kris started investing in small residential units, expanding to commercial multifamily properties before exploring self-storage as an “interesting asset class.”

    At Reliant Investments, Kris focuses his leadership and management skills on the commercial real estate company’s investment committee, which determines what self-storage properties to purchase while growing equity and creating passive income streams for investors.

    Kris is recognized as a self-starter and team player who always wants the ball when time is running out. He loves to discover the “why” behind investments, challenges, and opportunities.

    His ultimate goal is to help people understand that there is no one route to success: In his words, “School = Job = Security = Retirement = Happiness doesn’t have to be the path.” Investors and entrepreneurs, in particular, are afforded multiple opportunities to chart their own course, enjoying flexibility when it comes to work, travel, personal time and creating new goals.

    Focused on making the most of his own quality time, Kris loves to play – spending time outdoors mountain biking, skiing, boating, and hiking as well as coaching his son’s lacrosse team.

    While listening to a podcast, he was struck by the words: Risk is the tariff paid to leave the shores of predictable misery. Kris’ risks have paid off as he has charted his own course while building Reliant into an institutional quality investment platform.

    Living in Sacramento since his youth, Jake is the oldest of two brothers, one sister, and a stepbrother. As a kid, Jake always wanted to be a businessman, taking control of his own career… which began with his first job cleaning Police cars at the age of twelve; encouraged by his father who was a Police officer.

    Inspired by his family buying a house built in 1889, Jake constantly grew up around construction as the building was fixed up. After spending time in the Army (Squad leader in an Air Assault Infantry unit) Jake went into commercial construction and then ultimately real estate investment. Having received some success in his young adulthood, he achieved his goal of being a millionaire before the age of 30. However, during the subprime housing collapse he was over leveraged and watched his entire portfolio of properties and net worth disappear.

    Naturally, such a devastating change required tremendous perseverance to survive; and Jake doubled down on his work ethic and his knowledge. Attaining undergraduate degree in Entrepreneurship and graduate degree in International Real Estate, Jake has once again become a success— as an opportunistic investor he is now focusing on buying historic buildings, restoring them, and stabilizing them for rent or cash flow… eventually selling them for a profit. With over 15 years of experience in the profession, Jake has over 130 million worth of projects, and accomplished over 1000 property flips throughout 15 states.

    Married with two children, Jake remains incredibly close to his family as well as friends he’s made throughout his life. Having the opportunity to join the GoBundance tribe, he looks forward to connecting with like-minded professionals all over the country!
