About Investment Real Estate

Since our inception in 1998, we have specialized solely in the self storage industry. In fact, we are one of very few companies in the United States that can offer you brokerage, construction, development and feasibility services and management from under one roof. Over the years, customers and clients have profited greatly from the guidance and advice of our knowledgeable professionals who are actively involved and well-versed in all aspects of the self storage business.

From our offices in Pennsylvania, Virginia and Connecticut, we serve the self storage needs of our clients all along the East Coast with an emphasis in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast States.

I get great satisfaction helping others in this
wonderful industry of ours.

Our mission is to help our clients realize their dreams and goals through self storage. Along this journey, many of our clients have become great friends as we work together to maximize the value of their properties, then harvest the fruits of their labor through a sale of the assets.

I invite you to peruse our website and learn more about how our company can help you achieve your self storage goals.

We’re ready to go to work for you and welcome your call.

Selling multi-million dollar self storage assets is serious business and it needs to be handled in a professional manner. However, this doesn’t mean the process can’t be enjoyable.

We try to keep in mind that the seller has a goal of cashing in on their hard work, and the buyer is looking forward to owning an asset that can provide cash flow and future equity for themselves and their organization. The whole process should be fun and our goal is to make it as enjoyable and stress free as possible. If that means meeting and catching up while we’re in town, we are more than happy to do it!”
