Investment Real Estate LLC (IRE), a property-management and consulting firm serving the self-storage industry, has hired Isaac Rothermel as a brokerage assistant. He’ll work closely with the brokerage division and directly assist the company’s client base, according to a company press release. Rothermel will also assist with the preparation of feasibility and market studies, listing proposals, memorandums and due-diligence documents. In addition, he’ll manage the brokerage database, which tracks properties, comparable sales, property owners and new self-storage construction.
“We feel very fortunate and excited that Isaac joined the Investment Real Estate team. He came to us with a true zest for the commercial real estate industry, and he’s been able to hit the ground running in relatively short order,” said Kevin Bledsoe, brokerage advisor. “Isaac is going to be a great asset to our organization, and he will bring a fresh new perspective to the self-storage industry.”
Rothermel has a real estate license in Pennsylvania. He earned a Bachelor of Science in humanities from Thomas Edison State University and is currently studying for designation as a Certified Commercial Investment Member. Previously, he was as a property manager for a mixed-use developer with a portfolio of more than 200 residential units in York, Pa. He was also a subcontractor for a boutique apartment-building developer, also based in York.
“I’m excited to work for such a focused and established real estate company, with individuals who are some of the best in the industry,” Rothermel said. “The process of delving through data to inform decisions is one that I really enjoy, so this is a perfect opportunity to grow in those skills. I’m also looking forward to developing skills related to the sale of properties.”
Since its inception in 1998, IRE has provided brokerage, construction, management and development services to self-storage owners and investors.
