Carl E. Touhey began his real estate career in 1986 selling investment real estate in Phoenix, Arizona. His family built their first storage facility in the early 1970’s and they currently own and operate eight storage facilities. An investment opportunity in 1992 launched him into the self storage industry as he went on to acquire five storage facilities from 1992-1994 and owns multiple facilities today. His interest and success in fixing “problem” properties resulted in an impressive ownership track record. In the early 90’s, Mr. Touhey took his knowledge of the self storage industry and began brokering self storage properties in California. He has personally brokered over $550 million worth of storage properties and his extensive track record and outstanding results have distinguished him as one of the most successful self storage sales and acquisitions specialists in the industry. He is co-founder of Performance Self Storage Group which specializes in self storage brokerage and consulting in California. In April 2010, Carl Touhey co-founded Performance Self Storage Group with Jason “Jay” Allen. The firm specializes in self storage brokerage and consulting services nationwide.
