RECENT PRESS RELEASES:

COMPANY OVERVIEW:

It all started in Washington, DC when Scott and Ryan met as neighbors. Scott’s background in the military and Ryan’s background in aviation seeded the most important fundamentals at Spartan Investment Group – conservatism, due diligence, and a checklist driven approach. SIG started in residential and quickly moved into commercial development. Using the evaluation criteria of easy to manage, easy to maintain, easy to evict, we quickly settled on self-storage. SIG has acquired storage units, RV Parks, and has experienced massive growth in our team and our investors. In 2020, Spartan was named one of the fastest-growing companies by Inc. 500, and 8th in the real estate industry. Today, Spartan is a team of 30, spread out over four states with offices in Denver and Seattle.
