Charles "Chico" LeClaire

Executive Managing Director Investments

Charles "Chico" LeClaire joined Marcus & Millichap in 1990 as an agent in the Denver office. Today, he holds the designation of Executive Managing Director Investments - the highest level an investment professional can attain in the firm. He specializes in self storage property investments and has closed over $4 billion in sales across 33 states to date. He also serves as an Executive Managing Director of Marcus & Millichap’s National Self-Storage Division.

Mr. LeClaire has numerous Top 10 and Top 30 awards over his storied 28-year career with the firm and, most recently in 2018, was ranked 24th in the company out of 1,700+ brokers. In 2016, he ranked 7th in the company. He sold over $500 million in self storage facilities in 16 states that year alone and was awarded the Chairman’s Most Competitive Broker of the Year. Denver Metro Commercial Association of Realtors recognized his accomplishments and designated him the top commercial investment real estate broker in the city. And in the fall of 2017, Mr. LeClaire had the honor of being the first real estate broker to be inducted into the National Self Storage Association’s Hall of Fame.

Chico enjoys hunting and fishing with his friends from Canada to Mexico. He and his wife Marlene travel extensively and spend a lot of time at their place in Mexico. He has a 33-year old daughter, Renae, who lives in Florida. Reading, watching sports, and working out fill in the rest of his time.

Testimonials

We always appreciate the honest approach that Chico and his team take to presenting the underwriting on properties they market for sale. They use actual numbers and make clear any adjustments made to reflect reality.

Arlen Nordhagen

National Storage Affiliates

Chico has been an integral part of our growth over the past 20 years. He is a broker with integrity and the ability to make a transaction work for both parties throughout the process, whether difficult or easy.

Mike McGowan

Public Storage

I have always found The LeClaire Group to be able to use their industry experience and local market knowledge to add value to a transaction. Chico is a straight up guy who calls it how he sees it. His word and his personal handshake hold more value than a contract.
