Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (PRWEB) April 27, 2007
Bancap Self Storage Group, Inc., the "#1 Self Storage Broker in California," recently announced the 10 year anniversary of its Northern California office and the appointment of Carl E. Touhey to the firm in its 1997 expansion.
"Carl has brokered more self storage properties in Northern California than anyone else," says Bancap Self Storage Group President, Dean Keller. "In fact, he's probably sold more properties than all other brokers combined over the past several years."
Touhey started his commercial real estate career in Arizona in the mid 1980's with a large real estate brokerage firm. In the early 1990's, after learning about the industry through his family's holdings, Touhey moved to Texas and purchased several self storage properties from the Resolution Trust Corporation in Texas, Florida and Arizona. Later settling in California with his family, Carl is now exclusively dedicated to the brokerage of self storage investments.
Carl has been an active leader in the Northern California Storage Operator's Network and the Texas Mini Storage Association. He has also been a regular speaker and discussion leader at many of the self storage industry's trade shows and conferences.
With his experience owning and operating several self storage properties and as one of the most successful brokers in the industry, Touhey's experience and insights enable him to provide knowledge and expertise most brokers do not have. "When an owner asks me to sell their property, they know they are working with someone who truly understands their business," says Touhey. "Each property is a combination of real estate investment and business enterprise, I understand them both."
During his tenure with Bancap, Touhey has brokered every imaginable type of self storage property. Transactions have ranged in size from single projects under $1 million to large portfolios in the tens of millions of dollars. He has successfully worked with every type of buyer and seller; including local individuals, regional chains, national companies and various Real Estate Investment Trusts.
As to the future of the Northern California self storage market, Touhey says "There are going to be some great opportunities in the coming months as many facilities in temporarily overbuilt areas come to market. With the large and diverse pool of potential buyers, investors need experienced self storage brokers more than ever to put together the best deals."
Bancap Self Storage Group congratulates Carl on his 10 years with the company and his leadership in the Northern California self storage market.
