Chat Sarmiento-Steinwald is a native of the Philippines. Her dream, as a child was to live in America. She would watch the sunset in her native Island, knowing that the sun was rising in America. As a best laid plan to pursue her dream to come to America, she worked as an Accounts Analyst with Philippine Airlines for two years and then migrated to the USA.

She migrated to Los Angeles at the age of 23, armed with a hundred dollars and a degree in accounting and a fearless drive for the American dream. Three weeks later, she landed at Dunn & Bradstreet as a Trust Accountant and remained there eleven years. 

She then opened her own boutique spa in the toney neighborhood of Brentwood, CA., a move precipitated by the need to spend more time with her adolescent son, Mitch. Her spa was named one of L.A.’s finest by Beauty Magazine Editors including Allure, InStyle and TimeOut.

21 years later, and her son now 30 and safely on his way, Chat decided to close the spa and open yet another chapter in her life. She now focuses on multi-family and commercial real estate investing.  Her mentor, whom she met in 2018 is the nationally known Rod Khleif. Since joining Rod’s program, Chat has become a limited partner in more than 500 apartment units and a GP in 208 units.

She has quickly discovered the potential and opportunities for solid returns in multi-family residential investing, by aligning with solid, reputable partners and helping others to discover the same. Chat has also co-founded a women’s group focusing in Multifamily investing called Multifamily Women’s Mastermind with over 152 very successful and active members
