What drew you to real estate? I was lucky in that I was introduced to real estate through an internship at Extra Space Storage. I had the opportunity to learn from one of the most successful firms in the business during a time of rapid growth so, initially I think I was drawn to the merits of real estate—specifically self-storage as an investment asset class. But I decided to pursue real estate as a career long-term when I saw the impact of the work I was doing. We invest in physical infrastructure that lives in a community. I find it very rewarding to see our hard work reflected in physical form and know it’s providing a home, an office, a grocery store, or even a simple storage unit for people in their communities.

What drew you to Blue Ocean? I had a conversation with Evan Gallant and Jonathan Ehrenfeld to initially discuss the opportunity to join the Blue Ocean team. It was clear during that conversation that they were smart and creative and that they had built a great team and a successful track record. What really sealed the deal though was how everyone I met with spoke about their people. Blue Ocean’s leadership team genuinely cares about its people and has figured out how to win while putting people first.

What are you most excited about in your role? I look forward to the challenge of building and scaling a successful investment platform from the ground up and I’m most excited for the opportunity to work with and learn from Blue Ocean’s incredible team in the process.

Welcome to the team, Chase! We are excited to have you on board, and we look forward to making meaningful change and a positive impact on our communities and projects together.
