Skip Elefante

Owner & President - Platinum Storage Group

Mr. Elefante began his real estate career in the early 1980’s as a broker in the single and multifamily home sector. In 1983, he entered the self-storage industry and quickly made a name for himself by catering to the growing demand for professional self-storage property operators and investment opportunities in the sector for high net worth and institutional investors. As a result, Mr. Elefante began structuring joint ventures and partnerships with industry leaders. By 1997, he had completed more than $1 billion in self-storage transactions and became one of the nation’s most respected and successful self-storage brokers and facility operators, earning a reputation for sound business practices, unwavering integrity and tireless effort on behalf of his investors, clients and partners. In 1999, he founded Platinum Storage Group, consistently named one of the largest owners and operators of self-storage facilities. Over the years, his business has become a full-service self-storage venture, providing acquisition and disposition services, development and construction management, asset management, property management, financial consulting, and receivership services. Driven by market changes in recent years, Mr. Elefante actively engages investors to form joint ventures for the purchase of self-storage facilities.
