Storage Owner

"It was a pleasure doing business with Andrew Beeckman with Marcus & Millichap. From the time Andy came out and saw our facility he went to work preparing the Prospective. Within 10 days of putting our Storage Facility on the market, he got us a full price offer. He moved quickly along due diligence with the buyer and ourselves. He kept us informed and updated through the 2 months it took to close. We were very satisfied and happy with Andy’s effort in this transaction. I have already recommended him to two other facilities that maybe looking to sell."


Storage Owner

“Out of the blue, I received a visit one day from a lady I'd never met nor spoken with...Marla Čolić of Marcus & Millichap. She asked me if I would ever consider selling this place? As it turned out, I'd been considering it, given that someone had been constantly demanding I get him a number of what it would take.  At the time, my window was 2 to 3 years before even considering to sell. I gave her a number that I would need to sell earlier than planned. She gathered a few documents and returned within a week. She had prepared a nice presentation of my business and convinced me to go for it. I was so impressed, I said why not… As it turns out, I did sell the business.  From her initial unsolicited visit until closing, I remained extremely impressed with how diligent and responsive this lady was in gathering interested investors… Marla Čolić: Bottom line, extremely impressed!! Thank you Marla!”


Seller/Storage Owner

"Selling our two locations in the state of Missouri was incredibly painless because of our terrific agent from Marcus & Millichap, Marla Čolić. She got us top dollar for our properties and has stayed with us after the sale, making sure the transaction was smooth. We would recommend her to anyone thinking about selling their storage facility."


Storage Owner

"By working with Marla and her team at Marcus & Millichap, I was able to quadruple my investment in just over two years. The market for self storage certainly contributed to my success but Marla and her team helped prepare the asset to present well when going to market, sort through the various offers, and navigate the process to close with confidence. Marla was on site to evaluate the facility and had great communication through the entire process. A special shout out to Erin on the team who went above and beyond behind the scenes which made a huge difference in the details that can matter the most. I'm happy I chose to work with them and highly recommend them."


Storage Owner

“Our family is incredibly grateful for Marla’s guidance from the first day of marketing to the final hours of closing. With Marla’s help, we received multiple offers from qualified storage investors from around the country and sold our storage facility at top dollar.”


Seller/Storage Owner

"Anne and Marla were star brokers and we relied heavily on their experience to help bring the portfolio to market and get it sold. We interviewed half a dozen brokers before listing our portfolio but picked the Williams Storage Group because of their attention to detail on our properties and confidence that they understood the important aspects to highlight in its marketing. We would highly recommend them."
