Justin is a Brokerage Advisor with Investment Real Estate (IRE). Since joining the team in 2018, Justin has been involved in the closing of over $100 Million in self storage real estate transactions. He is responsible for all aspects of self storage brokerage activity, such as financial analysis, making operational based value enhancement recommendations for new and existing owners, preparing new listings, sales of new and existing sites, buyer representation and due diligence oversight. Justin’s office is located in Connecticut and he focuses his self storage brokerage activity throughout the Northeast Region, with concentration on Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York.
Justin has worked in the self storage industry for more than 17 years. During that time, he has been involved in the operations of over 75 different self storage facilities in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York (Upstate, NYC and Long Island), New Jersey and Pennsylvania. His career in the storage industry began in 2004 with U-Store-It (now Cubesmart) as an Area Manager covering 18 self storage stores spread throughout three states. Immediately prior to joining IRE, Justin had spent the last decade working for Extra Space Storage as a District Manager covering properties in Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York.
After many years in self storage operations, Justin made the decision to switch to the brokerage side of the industry for the opportunity to more closely work hand in hand with local owners. Having made his career in self storage, he has experienced the evolution of the industry from hand written lead binders and the “caretaker mentality” to the retail and technology driven sales environment that now exists industry wide. Justin has overseen the operations of facilities ranging from 300 units to 1200+ units with gross revenues from $19k per month to $225k+ per month. He pulls on this diverse and invaluable experience when making value enhancement recommendations to new and existing self storage owners.
Justin along with his wife Alana and their two children, Giana and Jake, reside in Amston, CT. During the summer you can find him with his family at many different festivals and fairs or on Cape Cod enjoying everything New England has to offer.
Justin is a member of the National Self Storage Association (SSA), New York Self Storage Association (NYSSA) and the Northeast Self Storage Association (NESSA).
