Our Story 

Warren Allan and Debi Lerma first entered the storage business in the late 1990s at an established Southern California firm.  Then in 2007, through a partnership with wealth management firm Optivest Inc, Warren and Debi started their own company: Optivest Properties.  

The self-storage management and consulting firm began primarily as a third-party manager overseeing a handful of properties located in the southwestern United States.  By the year 2012, through internal and external growth, the company had approximately 45 storage properties under management, both owned and third-party managed.  In 2013, Optivest entered a new stage of growth by accepting the invitation to become one of the founding Participating Regional Operators (“PRO’s”) of the newly formed Real Estate Investment Trust, National Storage Affiliates (NYSE: NSA).  NSA successfully completed its planned initial public offering in April of 2015 and has experienced significant growth since. 

For most of its company life, the properties that Optivest owned and managed did not operate under a unified brand.  Then, in 2016, in line with the ongoing evolution of the storage industry and the shifting needs of customers, Optivest launched “RightSpace Storage,” a consolidated brand under which its properties could be managed and optimized.  With a solid web presence and robust internal functionality, its website serves as the new hub for client intake and online branding. 

RightSpace Storage continues to uphold Optivest’s core values of service, integrity, and performance and is a company poised for future growth and excellence.
