Equanimity Capital Partners LLC is a privately held investment firm focused on acquiring, improving, expanding, and adding value to self-storage facilities to create stable, income producing assets in the United States. We target properties with expansion or conversion capabilities in growing and affordable markets on the outskirts of larger Metropolitan Statistical Areas and create capital appreciation through strategic acquisition and superior asset management.
Our team has over 30 years of real estate experience, and we partner with best in class vendors to support and execute on our strategic plan.
OUR MISSION IS TO PROVIDE BEST IN CLASS CAPITAL PRESERVATION AND GROWTH OPPORTUNITIES VIA SUPERIOR ASSET MANAGEMENT AND OWNERSHIP OF SELF-STORAGE FACILITIES.
GETTING TO KNOW WHAT WE DO
We own 18 self-storage properties comprised of 3,100 storage units and 400,000 rentable square feet plus 188 RV parking stalls in 5 states (GA, NC, SC, AR, UT) and we have raised approximately $10 million in outside investor capital.
Our investment criteria focuses on self-storage properties with expansion and conversion capabilities, and applying full automation to those properties with the goal of turning them into top-tier properties in their area.
Additionally, we look for value-add plays by finding self-storage properties in growing markets that have substantial upside in income growth and appreciation from improved management and operation, such as, increasing below market rents and controlling above average expenses. This combination results in a substantial increase in the cash flow and value of the property, which our investors can profit from.

ROI to Investors
WAREHOUSE CONVERSION TO SELF-STORAGE
A high-value strategy we employ that is faster and less expensive than ground-up construction.
EXPANSION OF NEW SELF-STORAGE ON ADDITIONAL LAND
An expansion strategy to add additional self-storage units to compliment existing cash flowing units to satisfy unmet demand in the area. We like to add a diverse mix of storage product types, such as, climate control units, enclosed auto & boat units, and covered RV parking spaces.
NEW SELF-STORAGE CONSTRUCTION ON UNDEVELOPED LAND
Our strategy is to find undeveloped land at an affordable cost per acre with a desirable location in a growing market with untapped demand and construct new self-storage units.
