Working with Extra Space throughout the years has been a great experience. They started by managing our properties but soon the relationship expanded to include the sale of several properties to them as well. More recently our relationship has evolved and we now partner with them in various joint ventures. The guiding principle for our partnership has always been to create a win-win situation for both parties.

The Hampshire Companies’ relationship with Extra Space Storage dates back to 2012 when they purchased 10 self-storage properties from us. The sale of those properties led to various opportunities including co-investment in development projects and the follow-on sale of another 13 properties. In addition to being a valued transactional partner, Extra Space has served as the manager of Hampshire’s self-storage portfolio. Over the course of the term of our relationship Hampshire and Extra Space have teamed up on over 60 self-storage projects.
