ABOUT GEORGE FITZ
George Fitz is one of our incredible mentors at Bigger Pockets and is responsible for assisting a number of our clients in purchasing their very first self-storage facility, as well as growing and scaling an existing portfolio.
Born and raised in the small mining town of Hazard, Kentucky, he went on to get a degree in film from Northwestern University. He later moved to California and began investing in beachfront condos, single-family, and multi-family rentals, and eventually in self-storage where he has experienced a great deal of success. But his greatest achievements are in giving back to his local community by contributing to the local theater, other groups that support domestic violence, the Shriners, and children’s suffering and poverty.
Eventually, he found an IT consulting business, which is truly his passion but credits self-storage for allowing him to create his dream company. And we are thankful that George takes the time to mentor our clients and for sharing the blueprint for making their dreams a reality with self-storage as the engine to make it all happen.
