Kirby Haines, CEO and founder of RTR Assets, started his journey in the financial industry at a very early age, thanks to both of his parents. Kirby would visit impressive houses with his mother, a real estate broker, and learned a great deal about the real estate industry. While in college, Kirby bought his first single-family foreclosure at 20 years old, which doubled his net worth.

A few years later, Kirby started working with his father at a brokerage firm and helped manage $50M in assets for over 100 wealthy families and business owners. This incredible opportunity added decades of experience from his father, and Kirby was able to apply all of this to Multifamily Real Estate when he joined Lifestyles Unlimited Real Estate and Mentor Group in 2010. Kirby is now passively invested in 17 multifamily deals with over 3,015 units and was able to achieve financial freedom and retire from Corporate America at the young age of 33.

However, Kirby didn't want to stop there. In 2018, Kirby created RTR Assets and became a real estate sponsor/Lifestyles Lead Investor by purchasing his first multifamily deal. Later that year, Kirby received Fannie Mae approval for self-management of his properties. With the help of a loyal and hardworking team who shares his passion for Real Estate, RTR Assets has become a market leader in its submarkets, growing rapidly. Now, in 2024, RTR Assets owns 5 properties totaling 1,186 units and continues multifamily acquisitions across strong Texas markets, totaling $135M in AUM.
