Listen to our blog on "How to Multiply Your Business Success" here:


On this segment of the Lifestyle Business Owner Show, Mayumi and Aaron Muller sit down with Blake and Christina Robbins, owners of Hillstone Capital, a private investment firm with a primary focus on real estate. Blake Robbins is a lifelong entrepreneur and has been in the alternative investment world of real estate hedge funds for well over a decade. 

Blake has founded numerous companies over the years, amongst various industries such as mortgage banks, insurance brokerages, construction companies and real estate development companies.  Most recently, the power couple have transformed Hillstone Capital into a multi-million dollar company in over a year. 

The tenacious couple explain how to work with your spouse on a daily basis, the in's and out's of their hedge fund and how to be successful in the real estate market today!

With the real estate demand on the rise, Blake and Christina created their niche business, Hillstone Capital, after continuously being asked by colleagues and other professionals to have Blake manage their money.  Christina, with a background in hospitality and design, has put her skills to work through project management and design, while Blake heads up the fundraisers and financials. 

Together this power couple has learned how to divide and conquer when it comes to using their strengths and challenging each other to strengthen their weaknesses. Currently, Oregon and Washington are the two markets they are taking business due to proximity but plan on expanding when demand grows. To invest with Hillstone and projects, they have set the minimum entry low enough for people to take advantage of their offers and add real estate to their portfolio in an affordable way.

5 Benefits of Investing in a Private Hedge Fund:

  1. Real estate can be expensive 
    • This gives their clients the ability to invest in this hot market independently 
  2. Leveraging professional expertise and knowledge
  3. Access to the best deals due to the strength of the fund
    • (ex: permits, municipality)
  4. Excellent stable returns
  5. Passive
    • Time Freedom

As business owners, we experience wins and losses but how we handle those trials is what determines our success. Listening to customers, your team, employees and partners allow business owners to be exposed to what is lacking and therefore build systems to improve the current processes.  

"How do you stay motivated?"

If you want to be motivated on a daily basis you need to find what works for you, whether it's vision boards, accessories, daily affirmation quotes, workshops or a blend of a few.  You are the driver of your destiny and it's important to learn how to keep that fire going even when we face road blocks in our business and personal life.
