Paul built a more than $1.5-billion real estate investment business over the last decade, that he started while in college at the University of Texas. He took advantage of depressed values during the recession, and built one of the most impressive national real estate portfolios.
That is just one of the reasons we chose Paul to be one of the ten national 2017 Next Generation Award winners. Connect Media’s Next Generation Awards recognize young leaders in the commercial real estate industry who are likely to be influential for years to come.
Today, he owns one of the largest self-storage companies in America, Great Value Storage, which holds 35,000 units nationwide. He’s the largest development landowner in downtown Austin, where he controls land entitled for six million square feet of development. He’s also amassed more than 10 million square feet of commercial properties in 17 states, including office, retail, industrial, and mixed-use.
The credit for Paul’s success is anchored in a strategy of buying when everyone was selling between 2009-2014. That foresight and the courage to execute on that contrarian approach has made the 30-year-old perhaps America’s youngest self-made real estate billionaire.
