What Our Clients Say

“We acquired the Tennessee portfolio of approximately half a million square feet in the early days of the pandemic – CSM was able to come on board with a customized solution to accommodate extreme operational volatility, Covid-era delinquency, and collapsing capital markets. They improved portfolio performance within a matter of months, and have demonstrated a deep knowledge of the sub-markets within which we operate. CSM exceeded our expectations and we look forward to continuing to work with them as we grow the self-storage vertical."

[Kartikeya Kejriwal (KK), Director, Gelt Ventures]
