One possible solution (which I've employed with success) is to record your current position (rtf.SelStart) to a variable.  Use the LockWindowUpdate() API call passing it the window handle (rtf.hWnd) property of the RichTextBox.  Then select the text you want to change the color for, change it, then move back and unlock the RichTextBox:

i.e.  (Where rtf is the name of the RichTextBox):

Dim lOrigStart&, lOrigLen&   'current selection
Dim r&                       'return value from API functions

  With rtf

    'record current position and freeze window
    lOrigStart = .SelStart
    lOrigLen = .SelLength
    r& = LockWindowUpdate(.hWnd)

    'move to new position
    .SelStart = xxxx           'Starting position
    .SelLength = xxxx          'Length of text to select
    .SelColor = RGB(x, x, x)   'New color

    'move back to original position and unfreeze window
    .SelStart = lOrigStart
    .SelLength = lOrigLen
    r& = LockWindowUpdate(0&)

  End With
