StorTrack, a provider of competitor-pricing data, market-analysis tools and first-stage due diligence for the self-storage industry, has hired RK Kliebenstein as a product consultant. In this role, he’ll be responsible for advising on the development of products for the self-storage investor and developer community. He’ll also assess new opportunities and develop business relationships for the firm.
“RK is a well-known and respected leader in the self-storage industry,” said CEO John Tilly. “His years of experience and authority in the industry will be a major asset to the StorTrack team as we continue to develop innovative products for the developers and investors of self-storage.”
Kliebenstein has more than 20 years of self-storage experience in acquisitions, development, strategic planning, operations, disposition and financing. He’s president of Coast-To-Coast Realty Advisors LLC, an industry consulting firm he launched in 2000. Most recently, he served as vice president of acquisitions for Metro Storage LLC, a privately owned real estate company specializing in the acquisition, development and management of self-storage facilities. He’s held similar roles for self-storage real estate investment trusts CubeSmart and Extra Space Storage Inc. He was also vice president of operations for StorageOne.
“Sourcing sites is a long, tedious, time-consuming process. I’m excited at the opportunity to work with StorTrack to develop products that will greatly increase the efficiency and accuracy of qualifying development sites and analysis of acquisition markets,” Kliebenstein said.
Kliebenstein is also the author of “How to Make Money in Self-Storage” and “How to Make MORE Money in Self-Storage,” both available through the Inside Self-Storage Store. He’ll be presenting a seminar at the 2020 ISS World Expo in Las Vegas, April 14-17, titled “Make an Impact! Essential Traits of a True Self-Storage Leader.” Registration for that event, the self-storage industry’s largest conference and tradeshow, will open in mid-December.
Launched in 2014, StorTrack serves more than 2,000 self-storage facilities in North America with dynamic pricing data, local market intelligence, market-valuation insights, reports and market-analysis tools. The company tracks more than 30,000 facilities worldwide with daily pricing data. It’s owned by Detroit-based Aggregate Intelligence Inc., a global company specializing in data on air travel, e-commerce, events, hospitality, rental cars, retail and self-storage.
