We are a multi-strategy investment firm focused on superior long term, risk-adjusted investor returns achieved through a combination of recurring cash flows and timely sale of assets based on attractive market conditions.
BSH Companies and its principals have experience working across a wide range of real estate asset classes. Our principals have previously worked at some of the world’s largest real estate brands prior to launching our business 13 years ago. Our team’s current focus is centered around indoor, multistory, best-in-class self-storage facilities. As markets change, our experience and investing track record allow us to consider investments in real estate developments, general partner positions, or operating companies.
We opened our doors in 2009 with a focus on medium-sized markets in America’s heartland - cities that are often overlooked by larger investment firms, but where we find lower barriers to entry, higher risk-adjusted returns, and less competition. Our initials stand for Build. Stabilize. Harvest. We add value through construction and asset repositioning, drive results via hands-on operational oversight and generate cash flow from operations or asset sales, taking the optimal path that the market gives us.
