Although some of our clients are leaving the storage industry after completing a
transaction, many of them continue building, acquire existing properties, or simply have other assets in their portfolio. Therefore, we view a positive selling experience as being critical to ensuring that we have a pipeline of properties for future acquisition.
Dave and Nancy Blevins and daughter Beth McCombs, Harpers Road Storage Center
“My wife and I built Harpers Road Storage Center in Virginia Beach to help our daughter Beth, her husband and brother to expand their moving & storage business. When the business direction changed, Nancy and I assumed the management for a number of years. As we passed our mid seventies, we began to consider selling. I had done business with the Spencer family way back in the 1970’s, and began to discuss our options with Monty Spencer. Because we faced a large amount of depreciation recapture on the improvements and capital gains on the land, we had specific needs for a sales price and even possibly a Like Kind Exchange. Monty, Fred Paris and Mary Jo Braeutigam with The Storage Acquisition Group helped us work through the many challenges of selling our moving & storage business. They were professional, courteous, and a pleasure to work with. My family highly recommends The Storage Acquisition Group to any prospective seller.”
“Although my partner and I were not looking to sell our Climatrol Self Storage facility when Fred Paris called, he got our attention. Fred informed us of a good opportunity and walked with us through the whole process from a cold call to closing. Fred maintained the highest level of professionalism and integrity through the whole experience. I trust him completely. He worked hard to complete the deal in a manner that worked well for both sides.”
Stephen C. Barrs, Climatrol Self Storage
“Fred Paris and his team at The Storage Acquisition Group quickly negotiated a fair sale price. Subsequently, they were always available, kept me informed of the sale progress, and treated me and my property as if I was their sole focus. The process was quick and involved nominal effort on my part. I highly recommend Fred Paris and The Storage Acquisition Group to both large and small owners.”
“My experience with Monty and Pam was flawless. They always responded quickly to answer any questions I had and their entire team had a positive attitude, which made for a smooth closing. When Pam first reached out to me, I just had that honest feeling about the company and she further reassured me that I wouldn’t be pressured to sell if decided not to while also giving me full confidence that I would receive a fair offer. From that very first call to closing, I would certainly recommend Monty and his team.”
Fred Boozer, Viera Self Storage
“Monty is very responsive. I really only have all good things to say. I first got into self- storage facilities back in 1998 and over the years Monty and I have always stayed in touch. Even when a deal wasn’t imminent, I could tell that it was important to Monty and his team to stay in touch and foster a good relationship with me. Monty let me know he would work hard to get the best deal and he consistently finds the best value. He and his team have my highest recommendation.”
Michael Burnette, Ocean Storage
“Working with Monty and his team was great. They were cooperative, answered my calls night or day and if I had a question they would run it down and do it. I actually wasn’t even trying to sell. I was introduced to Monty by a mutual friend and we worked out a deal. When it comes along and looks right and you know the person you’re working with is honest and trustworthy, then you do it and make a sound business decision. I would definitely recommend Monty and his team.”
Oscar Barber, Barber Self Storage
“My experience with Monty and his team was excellent. They’re very responsive and always available to take my call. I think it’s pretty obvious that his team is very professional and it doesn’t take long for you to know you’re being treated with respect and that they’re going to handle all of your needs. I can’t say enough good things.”
Thomas Minton, Minton Interests
“It was a smooth process start to finish. We had a short timeframe to close this – from the time I initially talked with Fred and Monty, we had 90 days to not only complete due diligence but close and we closed right on time. I’ve been in the storage business for 25 years. I enjoy what I do and working with folks like Monty and his team gives me the opportunity to continue doing what I’m doing with a little less stress. I would highly recommend Monty and already have.”
Brad Brodie, Storage Development, Inc.
“I recently had the pleasure of working with Monty Spencer on a large and complex disposition of assets located in multiple states. Although Monty was on the “other side” of the transaction, we quickly forged a strong and trusting working relationship that held us in good stead as we navigated the multitude of issues endemic in a transaction of this type and magnitude.
Throughout the transaction, Monty kept the lines of communication open and averted numerous potential problems through his consummate professionalism, diligence and attention to detail.
I have the highest regard for Monty and hope to work with him again in the future.”
