A Word From Our Customers—Our #1 Form of Advertising

“One of the best ways to judge a feasibility consultant's work is by the quality of the feasibility study. I have read a number of feasibility reports written by self storage consultants. Ben not only does a great job with the qualitative and quantitative analysis but also knows how to effectively communicate his findings in written form. Most feasibility consultants have lots of industry experience but cannot put together a well-written report. In shopping banks with Ben's feasibility reports I always receive compliments from the bankers on the quality of the report and that is a real testament to Ben's work. A professional, well-written report is crucial for obtaining bank financing and for attracting investors.

For Ben, the engagement is more than just writing a feasibility report, it is about developing a strong working relationship with his clients. Ben encourages open lines of communication. Throughout the whole process and even after the report was finished, I felt perfectly comfortable picking up the phone to talk to Ben about anything that was on my mind. Ben even makes himself available to talk with his client's bankers and investors. The quality of Ben's reports and his open lines of communication is what sets Ben apart from other self storage consultants.”

"Before I invest the time and resources into a new project, I need to know what works. From getting the unit mix right, to developing the proper marketing strategy, Ben gives me the type of detailed analysis that is critical in the pre-development phase. I need to understand the good, the bad and the ugly on a project, and how to navigate any red flags--that is what BKB Properties delivers, every time."

“Ben knows what he is doing. It serves me well, and it serves our organization well, when we listen to what he says!”

Barry Lieberman

“Ben's detailed analysis and conclusions on development or acquisition feasibility are extremely valuable to the self storage investor, owner and banker.”

Stuart Wade
AAAA Self Storage Management Group
Norfolk, VA

"BKB Properties provides detailed and unbiased analysis on both potential self storage sites and markets. Having various roles over the years as a self storage lender, developer, owner, manager, and consultant gives Ben insights unique in the industry. We are starting the third phase of the initial project Ben analyzed for our company and the asset performance has been amazingly consistent with Ben’s report. Ben is my first call when I am investigating a potential SS opportunity."

"When I met Ben, he said he saw himself as part of my development team-- and he has been exactly that. From dealing with the city, to organizing the rest of my team, and designing a workable project, Ben has always been available-- even after I paid him. He's a great resource, and the first place I turn when I have a question that's not getting answered."

“It was directly related to the Mystery Shopping Report you completed that I was able to identify the weaknesses in my manager’s efforts. You accurately coached me on the weakness in the manager’s sales presentation. I stepped in and was able to correct this deficiency. We have already seen an improvement in the manager’s efforts and sales approach and have noticed an increase in occupancy.”

Henry Tracz Wareham

Wareham, MA

"When it was time to go to the bank, I needed more than generic estimates and benchmark-type numbers. Ben fine-tuned my feasibility analysis to where the presentation to the bank was smooth, and his projections could not have been any better. His combined background in both banking and self-storage was instrumental in the preparation of a perfect package which resulted in everything I wanted from my lender. His response and follow-through was excellent. He's an important player on my team."
