Kris Benson: How to Easily Make Money with Self-Storage Investments

Kris Benson, is the chief investment officer for Reliant Investments, a subsidiary of Reliant Real Estate Management. Reliant Real Estate is one of the top 30 commercial self-storage operators in the U.S. in 2018. As chief investment officer at Reliant, Kris is a member of the company’s investment committee that is responsible for overseeing the company’s new acquisitions. Kris also is responsible for investor relations and working with accredited investors to raise the capital needed for Reliant’s acquisition of new self-storage properties.

Kris is an investor in commercial multifamily as well as commercial self-storage and currently has over 570 units in his portfolio. While commercial multifamily is a great asset class, he believes the opportunity right now is in self-storage. In the last 12 months the Reliant team has invested over $96MM in self-storage projects and raised over $38MM from investors. Self-Storage provides a unique opportunity to invest in one of the most successful asset classes in the past 5 years and take advantage of the institutional interest moving forward.
