Chris Urso was living in his parents basement trying to figure out what to do with his life when he read a book that transformed his life. The book was Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki and it motivated Chris to jump into real estate investing with a fury. In this episode, Chris shares how he jumped in from the wrong direction but was able to turn things around, ultimately resulting in a $100 million investment business.
Christopher Urso is managing partner of URS Capital Partners, a private multifamily real estate firm, based in Long Island, NY. URS Capital Partners has acquired over $100M worth of multifamily properties throughout the Midwest and southeast and services over 150 active investors. Chris has raised over $33M in private capital for his real estate projects.
Real estate has been his true passion since purchasing his first property more than 15 years ago; Chris started out leading a multi-state team to acquire, renovate and sell over 60 single family homes. In 2010, he directed the firms’ efforts towards multifamily with the purchase of a vacant 40 unit building and has since taken a very systematic path to acquiring over 1,800 units.
What makes Chris’ firm different is: extreme diligence at the deal level, high level of execution at the property level, and the integration of technology and personal service for an exceptional investor experience. Working mostly with accredited investors, Chris’ core focus is value-add deals, where, through physical or economic improvements to the property, he can generate and pass that increased value on to his investors.
