You won’t find long-form interviews often on The Nick Huber Show. If you do, you’ll know that it’s with a high-powered guest who has a lot of knowledge to share. But most often, you’ll see this as a short-form medium for me to talk to you about business and real estate.
In 2011 I started Storage Squad, where we managed pickup, delivery, and storage for college students. We operated in 12 states, 30 colleges, and they all had the same peak season. It was a logistical nightmare, scaling from six full-time employees in the offseason to over 300 part-time employees in the busy season. But it gave me a great operations background, as I was in the weeds every day with marketing, hiring, organizing, and managing. This gives me a huge competitive advantage in real estate. I buy self-storage real estate and increase its value through my operational edge.
My company, Bolt Storage, owns dozens of self-storage facilities and thousands of units in a good chunk of states east of the Mississippi River. We have an operations team, an acquisitions team, a customer service team, and a management arm. And we’ve been growing fast.
I talk a lot about self-storage, but the concepts, tips, tricks, and deal structures I work with are applicable to all real estate investors. If you can learn from what I’ve learned, you’ll be a better real estate investor.
So should you trust me? Well, no. Take everything I say with a grain of salt like you would anybody else. I’m a random dude on the internet, but I do have a track record of success and lessons learned. The Nick Huber Show is meant to be short and concise and give you something to take away from it. It goes hand in hand with my real estate community. Real estate can be a lonely game, and I’m trying to change that. I’m creating an environment that’s open and welcoming to beginners, but also where people who are serious about doing big deals can work with others.
