President / Broker
Marshall was born and raised in Wichita Kansas. While at Wichita State in 1975, studying Entrepreneurship, Marshall opened the first of what became a chain of 10 specialty retail stores in Kansas, Utah and California. He followed this by opening a manufacturing and distribution company serving a five state area. Marshall has the ultimate entrepreneurial spirit. He has literally started business from scratch and built them up.
In 1983, while working with a local condominium developer and Realtor, Marshall received his Kansas real estate brokers license. In 1984 Marshall left to build his own company, Landvest Corporation, a local commercial real estate management firm specializing in multi-family, office, warehousing and retail centers. It was during this time that Landvest began managing two self-storage properties for two local developers.
In 1990 Landvest divested it’s non self-storage properties and devoted it’s full time and attention to the Self-Storage industry. Over the following years, this independent relationship with this development group, led to the expansion and management of nearly 60 self-storage properties with over two million square feet, operating in eight states.
In his spare time, Marshall is an avid pilot and enjoys traveling with his wife of over 25 years. He is also very excited to be a grandparent. His first grandson arrived in April of 2020.
