I was introduced to self storage in 1993. My job description was rent units, sweep them out and deposit the rent payments into the correct bank account. Pretty easy right?!? I have no doubt if that is all I did I would not have kept that position for 20 years. Several years after I became the manager of the property I was invited to "invest". Four of the five owners sold me a small percentage of their interest and the managing member took me to the bank and instructed the banker to loan me the money to buy in. To my surprise I had the money in hand to purchase their interest that afternoon! In 2020, I was able to purchase the majority interest of the asset and am the managing member.
I also own and operate of Self Storage Science, LLC. We specialize in third party property management, auditing and manager training. We try to learn something new about self storage everyday.
